If I would expect a 'Tourist Menu Place' it would be the boat house, as the location is extraordinary in the Central Park. Failed by fare! Though it was sencond day open in the season, we experienced excellent food, good wine and perfect service

The boat house is a nice waterfront setting in Glen Cove. Easy to get to and easy parking. Nice simple deck overlooking the boat basin. Lunch time food was good but not great.
