    The wait staff was overwhelmed. Took forever to get drinks. Fried shrimp and french fires were lukewarm when they came out. Not a good night.

    The appetizers and food was great., the drinks were a little bit weak could have used more alcohol I had a berry mojito. We had a great dinner and great dining experience we ate on the patio. It was our daughter’s 16th birthday she had a wonderful time.

    It's always nice to patronize a local establishment being part of the Rockett's Landing Community. Overall, the Father's Day experience was just ok, mostly because of your ambience. I will say your buffet food overall for the dollars you charged (Party of Five) was just mediocre and the 'Flies' while dining were both annoying and honestly made enjoying our meal less than satisfactory. Lastly, you need to train your staff about 'perception' and cleaning their cooking tools. The young lady at the omelet station was using a spatula with old dried-up eggs on it vs. cleaning it between each use. It was actually disgusting!

    We went to the Boat House for the Father 's Day buffet. It was amazing! The selections were great, breakfast items with a carving station and several seafood selections. The food was all hot and delicious. Everyone in our party was impressed. The dessert selections were the best I've sampled at a buffet. Hat's off to the kitchen, they knocked it out of the park!

    Ambiance and food was great. Had a long wait to be seated even though we had a reservation. It took a long time to get the food too.

    Service was slow and our waiter continually tried upselling us on items (from the wine list, to sides, and of course dessert after saying no to everything).

    We love coming here for anniversary dinners. Last night was a little disappointing. We waiting 80mins for our entrees and I was excited to try the broiled seafood combination, but was let down. The food was cold and it seemed like very little for a $45 dish. Overall we love this restaurant and understand sometimes it gets super busy. Just sucked a little for our anniversary.

    waiting an hour and half for food on a Tuesday night with reservations is simply unacceptable.

    Parking is so bad that we left before being seated.
    The Boathouse at Rocketts LandingResponded on June 12, 2024
    I am sorry that parking was an issue on your recent visit. There are two lots nearby, and we do offer valet in front of the restaurant, but if those were not options for you I can imagine it might be challenging. Hoping you will consider trying us again at a less busy time.
