No idea why there are so many negative reviews about this place but its wicked good - don't believe the haters. My group of 4 dined in for a late lunch (around 2:30) and this place was packed. All of us LOVED our meals and each one of us got something different and were in awe of the other persons... More

We've had a second home in the area for a while, and for some reason never made it hear. What a mistake. We came late on a Friday night, 10 minutes before they stopped serving food, and they were as welcoming as could be. Our server Eric, was terrific, as was the food. Wife and daughters thought the French Onion... More

Love coming to the Boat House. Crowded in the summer. One night we coudn't even get into the parking lot. My favorite meal is the braised short ribs in Bordelaise sauce. You don't even need a knife the cut the meat. The staff is very friendly and outgoing.

Came in for lunch and our food was awesome. I had the buckhorn sandwich and my hubby had the Rueben. The waitress was efficient but had the personality of dry toast. Overall it was very good and I look forward to coming back when we are in the area.

From a simple hamburger to a full dinner the food has always been delicious. Great atmosphere. Love sitting outside. We have always had great service. Takes awhile for get food when busy but you have to expect that. Good mix of locals and tourists.

I take my 98-year-old Mom to the Boathouse every Friday for lunch, and we love the place! The food is delish, the service is great, and the waitstaff makes a fuss over Mom, which is really sweet of them. To be honest, I haven't been here for dinner in a few years, so I can't comment on that. But as... More
