If you have an hour to kill and need a little leg exercise, this was a lot of fun. Paddleboats hold four, but only two peddle, which is not as easy if you fill up the boat. Beautiful lake area to paddle around in, including...More

Terrible, terrible, terrible. The wait was over an hour and we only got seated when I complained to the manager. Ordered our good the minute we were seated. 45 minutes later and no food. The table next to us is extremely frustrated. I advise against...More

I have paid some visits to the Boathouse at Forest Park in the past, but this has got to be the worst I have ever seen. Sure, the wait time is long, but you will see that at other restaurants in the area; on this...More

On a damp day the restaurant was a cozy oasis with a warm fireplace and views of the water. The service was adequate but not special. The food was fine.

Back and better than ever. This casual restaurant, bar, and boat rental facility, located in the heart of Forest Park on Post-Dispatch Lake, is like no other place in St. Louis. The Boathouse has undergone major renovations thanks to a gift from the Jack Taylor family. In the warm weather enjoy leisurely boat rides, lakeside patio dining, cold drinks, live music, and beautiful sunsets. In the cold weather enjoy indoor dining for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch…or just come and enjoy a glass of wine or a hot chocolate while relaxing around the large stone wood-burning fireplace. **Due to increased traffic in the Park during our busy season, we’ll be able to accommodate reservations for large parties only, 10-16 people, for indoor dining at specific times. Otherwise, our seating is available on a first come, first serve basis.
