Good stuff first: I'm a local and find the Boathouse to be one of the restaurants I recommend to tourists. Food is pretty decent...atmosphere is usually pretty great. On the last time we visited the bar crowd was pretty loud...I personally don't enjoy dinner when...More

The service and the bloody Mary's were great! The food was just good though. We got steak quesadillas, calamari and shrimp skewers and it was all just 'ok'. Great view of the river though while you grab a bite!
