The Desert Water drink was really good, Ahi Tuna Salad was great, Salmon Burger with sweet potato fries was just average. Service was super slow. My gosh service was slow. There weren't that many people in here on a Sunday either.

Have been to the Boathouse multiple times. Never had a bad item from their menu. Love the fried pickles. They are a must try. There was a musician there that night providing just enough back ground music to be pleasant and not overbearing.
