We were there on Saturday night for local brews, appetizers and college football and had every intention of moving on to grab a fancier dinner next door. The Boathouse Cantina isn't fancy, but the band playing was so good we couldn't leave.

Great burgers and fried Brussels sprouts. Friendly service and great local beers. Don’t miss the coconut stout with a scoop of ice cream for desert. After dinner you can walk off the calories along the scenic river walk!

Scenic location on the river. All workers were pleasant and took good care of us. Food was very good and large portions and reasonably priced. We would definitely go back in the future.

Not sure for inside. We always like to get an inside table along the river. Give them a call as they may allow dogs on the patio outside.
