Calamari excellent. Best ever. Hush puppies were exceptional. Shrimp and grits were 3.5/5. Rockfish 4/5. They were slow getting wine BUT compensated by taking it off the tab! Sally our waitress was exceptional! Well done. I did not like the sticky residue on the tables....More

Noticed the Boathouse while shopping a at LLBean and chose it for girls night out dinner; we usually go to Firebird's. Service was excellent. My filet was cooked perfectly rare and my friends both enjoyed their burgers. Hope to visit again soon!

Lovely, modern atmosphere with open air dining in pleasant weather. A bit pricey and slower than expected but still pleasant. Good salad and sushi selection. Sandwich options (crab cake, shrimp, etc.). At back "edge" of Short Pump Mall.
