Don't order the swordfish. It was like tasteless, bouncy rubber. My server was excellent, gracious, friendly and obliging. I sent the fish back and it was no trouble for her to bring me the menu to order something different. I ordered the ahi tuna tacos,...More

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
