A great location on the waterfront in Old Town. Every night they have an awesome happy hour. All appetizers are half price. You pick right from the menu. You are dining with a fantastic water view. Service is good as well as the food.

We love the Boathouse. There is always something going in around the Marina so whether it is just people watching or the fish being filleted, grab a booth by the window and be entertained.

Had the coconut shrimp which was to die for...should have had ordered double as the portions were very small. Cocktails are good. Reasonably priced. Staff not so friendly and although there were plenty of seats, we were made to sit right at the back of the restaurant with no views on a tiny table.

Went two nights to The Boathouse for Happy Hour, where we at practically everything on the small plates menu, and had great drinks. The grand total per person for way too much food and drinks was about $20 each. The variety, the ambiance and the service were all great. Get their early because this is not a well kept secret....

We enjoyed a great dinner here. The wait staff were so accommodating, even going upstairs to the fine dining to get my sister a small loaf of delicious bread. Would definitely recommend to our friends.

Great place to see the charter boats return with their catches. Best happy, hour all appetizer's and some drinks half price. All freshly prepared and delicious. Prime rib dinner was great, it is supplied by the Commodore fine dining restaurant above for a small price.
