    Only complaint was it was very noisy. Our service was good but our server kept making references to alcohol, he was trying to be funny, however we were dining with a recovering alcoholic so it was rather awkward for us. The appetizers and entrees were excellent but the crème brûlée was very runny, but otherwaise tasty.

    Food excellent as well as the service. We were seated on the enclosed porch and had to request another table due to the noise level. When we exited through the enclosed dining area it was just as loud. This really needs to be addressed.

    The Boathouse is always good for a Friday night meal—close by, valet parking and fun atmosphere. However, the food is hit or miss. For instance the mussels were great; the Caesar salad not so much—old romaine and not much dressing. My husband’s shrimp was perfect and generous portion. I once ordered sweet corn hush puppies and the oil was so old they were almost black and burned. So as I said hit or miss. Our delightful server Isabelle was rushed and very busy, but took good care of us and a caring person. We’ll go back when we can sit in the upstairs bar and watch the sun set over the marsh.

    Great location and wonderful views. service was very good. The menu is OK with lots of fresh seafood options. Not the very best food I have had but good enough. The wine selection was a little limited but good. Overall I would give the total experience a B. Will probably go back again sometime.

    Servers were great! Food was quick. Loved the free valet service. The lobster was fresh. Collared greens did not taste cohesive. Mahi-mahi was not flaky. Instead it was juicy. It was also lukewarm. Steak was perfect! Dessert tasted like it was boxed. I was a little disappointed in the food. My expectations were very high going into this dinner.

    Food was hit and miss. Mahi mahi and swordfish was good. Collard greens were good. Hush puppies were good. Shrimp was smallish and mushy and mac and cheese tasted like it had been reheated multiple times. Music was loud and obnoxious. Some soft jazz would improve the ambiance. May or may not return.

    Our family had reservations after a Christmas Eve candle light ceremony and we were promptly seated even though we arrived a bit early. The staff was so joyful and professional handling a very busy time, allowing us to have a wonderful Christmas Eve experience when they should be home doing the same. Our meal was just as impressive! Every bite was well prepared and filled our pallet with excitement. Well Done Boathouse Team, see you next Christmas Eve if not sooner!!!!

    Reservation was for 5:15 and we were seated right away. The table for four was inside but next to the door leading to the outdoor wrapped in plastic seating area. We had record cold temps, so had I been directed outside, I would have left. I cannot imagine how others could stand it. Our food was as good as it usually is. Cocktail, one on the holiday list, was really quite delicious. Appetizers were quickly devoured, and our server was extremely attentive, even telling us about other places we could try (? We're local and he knew that, just thought that was odd) overall good experience, just glad we were able to dine inside. Glad they were open Chriatmas Eve!

    Poor choice of music, playing overly loud in dining room. Did not make for a relaxing, enjoyable meal. However, I did ask him to turn down the music, and that helped when they did. I ordered lobster, and it was soggy and somewhat undercooked. Not a great meal, considering what the charges are there for food.
