The large selection was overwhelming and we were not too hungry. The selections recommended by the waiter were just right! Service was excellent and the food well-prepared.

Walked in at 21:09 on a Saturday night as I was in a hotel next door. The restaurant was half empty and I was on my own. They refused service because they were apparently too busy. What disgrace. No hospitality at all.

If you are going to the Richmond location then get onto Bridgeport Road from the highway and head west. The entrance to Boathouse Parking is after you've crossed No 3 Road and immediately BEFORE you get to the overpass
