A great way to look at Central Park but rowing on the lake instead of strolling in the park! We went there Thursday afternoon (Easter Week). There was a line getting in but it moved fairly quickly. The rental price was ok for a family...More

I had the twin hamburgers and my wife had the Halibut special. The Halibut was well prepared but weak on flavor. The hamburgers, while receiving rave reviews from the waiter, was generic at best. The service was almost good, just a half step off what...More

The Loeb Boathouse is a really touristy place, but nonetheless was actually a pleasant experience. The view of the park and the pond is beautiful, the service was polite (albeit a bit slow), and the food was decent to good. I recommend the crabcake appetizer...More
