I had the Portabella Mushroom Ravioli and it was excellent. The owner came in and said how thankful he was that we had our little gathering there. There were 16 of us.

The owner went to nearly EVERY table and told the SAME story...not quietly either. This is supposedly a seafood inspired restaurant and I was recommended the scallops. Not so tasty, very rubbery and certainly not cheap.

I am sorry that your sea scallops were not up to your expectation. I will speak to the chef and check out our recent purchases. They are normally very good.

Got us through quickly so we could get to the theater. Food is always good. If looking for cheap, this isn't it. It's not really high, but ok for the quality food they prepare.

We experienced Smith’s Boathouse for the first time. Our waitress, Nicole, was excellent, and our food was enjoyable as well. The fish and chips were good, and a salad was offered in place of slaw if desired. The slider sandwiches and chowder were tasty also....More
