    Long wait (1 hour) for food. Appetizers were served together with entrees. Asked service twice for a glass (5 people received 4 water glasses) but never received.

    The food and service were exceptional, as always. We were there celebrating our Anniversary and the staff were very attentive. We enjoyed the crab cake dinner and the fillet. The cocktails were well presented and creative.

    The kitchen was just not on their game on Monday night. While we were seated immediately by a friendly hostess, it took 10 minutes for the waitress to arrive. We ordered drinks, appetizers, salads, and entrees. We waited 30 minutes for the drinks and one of them was the wrong one. It took another 20 minutes to get a replacement. Appetizers were superb, both fried and raw oysters and calamari. Salads came 20 minutes after appetizers were removed, but entrees came before we were done with salads. No tartar sauce or ketchup came with fish and chips or fries. Spinach - no garlic- looked like a swimming pool and HEAVILY covered with garlic - inedible! Chicken sandwich was so spicy, it was inedible, and then the waitress disappeared, PERMANENTLY! 30 minutes later a friendly blond waitress came by with our bill. Hmmm where are the days when Mr. Healey was there???? Missing them!!!!

    The service and food quality that I expect at the Boathouse was not present for the evening of 26 September. The food was over cooked and dry. The beverage (beer) I had ordered did not show up until I was almost finished with my meal, after asking the wait staff to please bring it a second time. The "ambient" music was too loud, and of a genre that didn't serve the dining experience. Needless to say, I wasn't impressed or happy - an important anniversary meal ended on dis-satisfactory terms.

    Our food took a long time to come out and one order was wrong. When we mentioned it to the waiter he took care of it quickly. However, the order came out wrong again and then it took a long time until they got it right. Meanwhile, other people at the table some of the food was cold when it arrived but they did not complain to the waiter. One person at our table ate after everyone had finished their food. I feel the waiter did the best he could to correc the order. A manager did not even come over to check on the order.

    We only saw our server twice and it took 1 hour and 5 min to receive our food. When our food arrived one of the pasta dishes was ice cold. Although we thought we had planned plenty of time for dinner we were late to our event. The venue is beautiful but would not recommend this restaurant.

    The service was really slow. It took 15 minutes to get a brown & watery salad and our friend’s hot appetizers came out well before our salads. My husband’s fried shrimp & fries were cold. We witnessed A LOT of food especially pizzas sitting for at least 10-12 min before being delivered. I was excited about the “raw” in the middle” cookie dough dessert but it came out fully cooked. I can see why they take out an automatic 20% for “service” because no one would tip that otherwise. It was very disappointing.

    They automatically put in 20% gratuitous and it’s tipshare. There is no incentive for their servers to provide good service because of this. Love the food and atmosphere, but I am disappointed in the management’s decision to implement this tipshare system. The service we had last night was pretty bad.

    I do not like automatic 20% gratuity added to the bill. A better way to combat increased costs would be to have a different special everyday. That way you could help control inventory and provide value. Automatic gratuity is a very bad idea to help with higher costs and will cause us not to recommend.

    The dinners were great- chicken picatta, peach burbon salmon, pan seared salmon. Desserts were outstanding bread pudding and creme brulee. The roasted asparagus side, however was so highly salted, pepoered, spiced it was inedible but that was returned and removed from the bill. The pino grigeo was great. When the bill was brought to sign for, it was the wrong bill, but that was voided and we were charged again for our higher bill. Over all great meal and beautiful lake view.

    We had a lovely date night at the Boathouse. There was a wedding, so there was some noise from that, but otherwise it was still quiet. Billy was our waiter and he was fantastic. The Boathouse is always one of our favorites.

    Fun place to go for lunch with beautiful atmosphere. Just make sure you have time to sit and wait. Food was delicious but like most restaurants these days they were very understaffed. It took 45 min to place our food order. We bought a bottle of champagne as we were celebrating. It was warm. It was not replaced or taken off our bill. We were brought ice for a $34 bottle of champage. I feel like that could have been handled better. Staff was kind and as attentative as they could be, considering they were understaffed.

    1st time at this location. Beautiful deck overlooking the reservoir. Watched the ducks & people paddle boarding & kayaking. Food was great, had shrimp & grits for brunch. Went for my sister’s bday & it appeared to be a lot of celebrations going on, champagne bottles & people laughing & having fun. The staff was the best part, so nice & accommodating & the manager checked on us a couple times. Dogs allowed on the deck. Couldn’t recommend more. Great place!!!!

    They allow guests to smoke outside right in front of the counter. There were several families with babies and pregnant moms all trying to get away from the cigarette smoke. The management staff saw this, and made no effort to stop them.

    My daughter checked us in with two hostesses and they acted like they halfway heard her… I checked in with two other people took them 15 minutes to get us seated… Managers were no help… Said they had a full staff but they had an event there so maybe they were fully staffed for the event but not for other paying customers

    WE were welcoming my family visiting from California along with a few friends so we had a group of 10. The food was good, the ambiance was perfect as it was a perfect weather night. The only negative and I'm NOT HAPPY, is that you add 20% gratuity to the bill. I know it's stated in advance but in the noise and preparation to leave, this is the second time I've left a 20% tip on top of the 20% tip. Your invoice needs to state in BIG LETTERS: 20% GRATUITY INCLUDED, ADD EXTRA IF DESIRED. I think this is done on purpose as I'm sure I'm not the only one who has tipped 40% of the bill.......... it's not right.

    Seating went well and hostess even helped bring our drinks to our table when ready. Our server was late to greet us and take our order. No plates, napkins or cutlery were at the table when seated and had to ask multiple times. Our dinner was Luke warm when it arrived. We were charged for an appetizer we never received, which was removed from the bill and provided to us in a to go bag. Perhaps an off night??

    Food was as expected…good. Unfortunately the dinner menu hasn’t changed in forever and there is nothing new. My only complaint is that it was nearing closing time….there were multiple families or couples there eating….and the music went full blast. I could barely hear my date. They obviously were trying to push us out. Very rude.

    Our experience at the Boat house was poor. I was excited to hear they had gone back to traditional service, having the wait staff service tables. Our service was unfortunately very slow. They also charge a mandatory 20% service charge. Despite having great ambiance, it looks like we will be skipping this one again for a while. Get it together…

    Made reservations for our anniversary dinner. Were seated shortly upon arrival. Once our drink order was taken, we didn't see our waiter for another 40-45 minutes. Our bottle of wine arrived and after sitting there for 35 minutes we asked another server to please find our server. The food was mediocre. A pretty disappointing experience. We will not return and we would not recommend it.

    The service was amazing Hani was our server and she was GREAT! The food was terrible. We were very surprised because this is the first time we have had such bad food. The linguini had no taste, no salt. The coffee was not good, shrimp poppers were over salted and the crab cake was not hot. We will be back again but we were extremely disappointed in the food…especially for what we paid!

    The restaurant just transformed back to patrons ordering from service staff. Our meal delivery was disjointed. Two of us didn’t receive drinks until the entree came; entrees for two in our party came well before the rest. Very sweet waitress - Food was good but service was awful!
