Always great service, always good food. It can be loud in there at times, but overall a fun atmosphere.

My wife and i frequent the Boathouse restaurant on our "date night". This restaurant continues to be first class, but yet welcomes, and treats all who come there equally. The food is always excellent and the host and wait staff, friendly and efficient. It's no wonder this restaurant was voted the best in the county. It has a view of... More

Came with friends. Service staff impressed right off the bat. Two had steaks perfectly prepared. The full rack of ribs was enormous and fall off the bone good. We enjoyed a great view of the lake.

First of all, our server - I'm sorry; I forget his name - was absolutely superb, among the best I've ever seen. He was informative (without acting as if here were a contestant in some sort of culinary trivia contest) plus friendly and cordial (without fawning subservience). Servers in many larger cities could learn from him! We passed on appetizers,... More

I was in Warsaw for an event 2 years ago and remembered the Boat House being good, service and food. I went again with two others and this was our experience: -Seating was fast, server attentive -Too attentive as we received an order of pasta (overdone), chicken quesadillas, and salmon in less than 10 minutes of placing our order. Anybody... More

We ate dinner here with relatives and celebrated a birthday. The portions of food were EXTREMELY generous. Everything was delicious. The coconut shrimp with pina colada type dipping sauce was superb. The grilled pineapple and chicken dish that my husband ordered was also excellent. Everyone in our party was very pleased with their meal. They gave a special dessert with... More

We love this restaurant and the food is awesome. We think it's probably the best family restaurant in the area for miles and miles. There is only one thing that has not gone right for us and it's how the meat is cooked - we have not gotten a steak that has followed what we request. Over cooked or undercooked... More
