Last minute change of plan allowed us to dine without reservations. Excellent meal, great view and very friendly/professional wait staff. Will definitely return the next time in town.

Two stars because I think the location and view could possibly be amazing... However, my reservation was made after sunset. There is complimentary valet but make sure to be ready to wait, as there was only one guy working on the Saturday that we went to dinner. Close quarters here, so make sure you are comfortable being super close to... More

Free valet parking. Easy to find. May need to make reservations so call about a day ahead just incase they are booked. If you would like to sit outside make sure u request it. We went around 5:30pm on a Wednesday. Not very busy. We sat outside. Very nice place. Friendly and fast service. Menu is kind of expensive depending... More

Made a reservation for Friday night a few days ahead of time. Asked for seating overlooking the inlet and got just what we asked for. Service was nice and drinks were strong! Food was out to us quickly only thing I can say that might be considered bad was there was not very much gouda on the gouda mac and... More

We waited until our last night at the beach to dine at Boathouse. We called for reservations and were given some choices - none of them the 7:00 time we requested. We arrived for our 6:30 reservation and were seated quickly. Many vacant tables were in plain sight until well after 7:00. Why could we not get in at seven?... More

Its a nice restaurant but definitely over rated. The atmosphere is great but the food is mediocre at best. I won't gone again..

My family and I had dinner at the Boathouse and we were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service provided. If you are looking for a nice place to eat in this area, I would highly recommend.

For 2 people be prepared to pay over $100. Even though it was a holiday service was good & NOT overly extraordinary. Scenic view nice if sitting on the bottom level. So ask for this, or like any other seafood restaurant! Crab fritter was an excellent appetizer! Valet parking was a special touch!

Fun happy hour with great views and inexpensive drinks at the bar overlooking the water. Food is hit or miss but we just ate olives and limes and we're fine. :-)

Our group of 13 went to The Boathouse for a birthday dinner. Everyone loved their meals except the one person who isn't into seafood and ordered chicken - she said her dish was a little bland. I had the fried scallops and fried oysters and they were GREAT. We ordered creme brule since it was a special occasion and that... More
