Food portions were small. The crispy calamari was hastily put together and without much substance. Paella was second rate, not containing all seafood listed on menu. In the scallop dish, the four scallops were nicely cooked but was a small amount of food. We had made a phone booking earlier in the day but staff had not recorded it. This... More

Service and meal were excellent. The seafood scampi had just the right amount of seafood (scallops, shrimp, and lobster). The calamari was lightly battered and delicious!

I have been to the Boathouse on a number of occasions for lunch and supper. It has always been a pleasant experience. The food and service is excellent. The view from the restaurant only adds to the relaxing atmosphere.

We have been regular patrons of the Boat House since its opening and we have never been disappointed with the food or service. Menu selections are changed frequently and the emphasis is on fresh, locally-obtained ingredients. Flavor, presentation, portion size all very satisfactory, and service is attentive and knowledgeable. The Boat House advertises its fine views, which are indeed so... More

Love the half price apps from 3-5 PM at the bar. The fried oysters are fabulous. Try the grapefruit martini for a delightful drink. Deep Eddy grapefruit Vodka and St. Elder's makes for a truly nice combo. Salads are lovely.

This was my first visit to the Boathouse. I have been a semi-regular at Hemenway's in Providence and I knew The Boathouse would offer the same high quality. I arrived on the blustery but sunny Saturday afternoon for lunch and because the restaurant was only half-full, I was seated at a table for four facing the water. The view of... More

The best upscale restaurnt in the area. Great food, good service, wonderful bar drinks, great value. You won't go wrong. Try the garden sald as a appetizer--the dressing is beyond delicious.

Ventured north from Newport to a spot we had been to years ago. Now, completely redone and weatherproofed, The Boat House in Tiverton has a warm, friendly atmosphere that welcomes guests year-round. The Fried Oysters in a Cornmeal Coating were delicious, and their signature Hall of Fame Chowder, while too thick for our tastes, was spicy and filled with goodies.... More

You simply cannot find a more dramatic setting day or night than the Boat House. Whether it a business occasion, a casual get together or a romantic memory in the making the Boat House rises to the occasion.
