Love the 4-630pm specials all half price appetizers and drinks. Place gets busy but worth a little wait. Right on the wharf with good people watching. The conch chowder was nothing to write home about but the coconut shrimp, lobster tempura, grouper bites and wings were all great. Can't beat the price!! We ended up sitting at the bar instead...

Happy hour is from 4-6pm, Go early, as this is a very popular spot. A local recommended it to us, and we weren't disappointed. Try the Boathouse bread appetizer. It was delicious - a melted cheese covered focaccia bread with a hint of mayonnaise. Very tasty. The lamb chops were delicious. The coconut shrimp were also good. I also enjoyed... More

Great for an afternoon bevy to sit and people watch outside on the pier. Happy hour is good too, was too big a fan of the bar snacky foods but the chicken panni looked good as did the boathouse burger.

We went during happy hour with half-price appetizers. Everything we ordered tasted like it came from Sysco via the freezer.... waitress insisted it was fresh when we asked. I'm not buying it.

Had the yellow tail snapper dinner and it was fantastic!!! The best fish we've ever eaten. Also had the best banana Bahamas's mama ( I asked for coconut rum instead of regular). It was sooooo good. Best drink I've ever had. The bartender served drinks like you would make at home. Another great place off of the tourist ducal street.

Gotta love half price appetizers and drinks. This place was crazy busy, apparently this is where the locals go. The food was good, nothing over the top, but with those prices, it was nice to have a very affordable night!

If you're going for Happy Hour, you may have a wait to get in the place, the food is very good. We were told to try the bread appetizer it's very good, there's a buttery cheesy topping on it that is delicious. Great salads and fish. You can bring your own and they will cook your catch.

We stopped by for lunch with a big group and they promptly accommodated us. I was very surprised I could get a lobster tail with sides for $24! We also ordered appetizers and they were good . The ambiance is good, and right by the water. Overall good for a relaxing quick stop on the harbor.
