We absolutely wanted a "The Boathouse" restaurant but they had limited reservations available for our time constraints. So we settled for this one in Richmond. We were a good group (4 adults + 2 children). Upon arrival the waitress was quick to attend to us...More

Close to the airport with plenty of parking. Decent selection of seafood favorites. Nothing too innovative. Right on the water but the view is not picturesque. Service for Monday lunch was attentive and friendly.

We are coming from the Abercorn - how do we get to Boathouse?

Response from Wim V | Reviewed this property |
If you are going to the Richmond location then get onto Bridgeport Road from the highway and head west. The entrance to Boathouse Parking is after you've crossed No 3 Road and immediately BEFORE you get to the overpass
