Food was very good. The atmosphere was great, especially the Cichlids in the fish tanks. The waitress was friendly & helpful. A bit expensive but fish is very expensive to buy now anyway. Overall a good time was had by all.

She had the lobster roll, I had the steak dinner. Everything was very tasty, beautifully prepared and presented. Service was top-notch. Very short wait time for A cosy little table for two! And the view was spectacular!

The Boathouse accepts reservations, and it is always a good idea to have one just in case but it is not mandatory. The only exception is there are no reservations made for the patio.
