Gorgeous views for sure! Service was decent, food mediocre. Cesar salad with spots of brown romaine which I wouldn't expect for a restaurant in a high end resort. We ordered French fries since the menu read, "freshly made" only to find they were frozen. Go...More

We've made a pilgrimage to the Boathouse for the past five years, so I was a bit concerned about the recent reviews indicating food and service had gone downhill. We decided to go anyway out of tradition and were pleasantly surprised. We arrived by land...More

To paraphrase Seinfeld...they know how to TAKE a reservation - just not KEEP a reservation. Told us we'd have an outside table at 7:30 - got there and told us at least 1/2 hour - so to sit inside and they'd move us - a...More

Service was good, View A+. Appetizers were delish, but set up for a disappointing main course. Ordered a strip steak but ended up with an "end" not a strip. Lacked flavor and was boring. Did not meet our expectations and for the price was not...More
