The fried catfish is wonderful! Kids chicken nugget meal was big enough for 2 kids and they ate it up. Nuggets are real chicken pieces. Will definitely go back!

I need to go back and try more things on the menu. Stopped by to kill time and ordered the boat house salad with catfish and I had the cheeseburger with bacon. The cheeseburger was delicious. I didn't try the salad because I don't eat catfish but heard it was good. Will definitely be back to try more things on... More

This place is small, comfy, and dang good eating, I had a hamburger which was almost more than I could eat! If the 620 is crowded at rush hour, you might want to stop and smell the roses!

I've been going here for years and the food is very consistent. Really good burgers and fried fish. However, they have the best chicken fried steak around.

I am hooked on their catfish, and whenever I go there, I order their catfish. So fresh and crispy and a delight. Always wish that I got more coleslaw though. Outside eating area is fun.

You order at the counter but food is delivered. Lots of fried food selections but I had the grilled shrimp. It was surprisingly tender and the meal was good

We regularly get the cheeseburgers and the catfish here. The fried catfish is juicy and crisp and always served steaming hot. The fries are the best I've had in Austin!

We went out for a drive and while driving around North Austin on 31 Jul. We drove by it and turned around and went back. I ordered the Hickery Burger and it was awesome. We will visit the Boat House Grill again!

Love this place! I eat here often, mostly to indulge in all the fried goodness, beer and the ability to just chillax as long as i like indoors or out wearing flips flops and a bathing suit if I choose. Great prices, great staff, and even a kids covered outdoor play area.

Had a great first experience so we came back for lunch a second time. I was annoyed that I was charged $2 for a styrofoam cup of tap water!!! Check your receipts! Condiments such as mustard and BBQ sauce should be set out by the ketchup instead of having to ask for them at the counter. Did not like the... More
