Unique setting with quite a stunning decor. Bar tenders mix a good drink. Upstairs does add breathing room when crowded. Try it..worth the experience. Off the beaten path...part of the fun trying to find it.

Been going to area for 19 years. Always go to the Boat House for drinks. It is small. It is different. All ambiance especially if you are a boater. We absolutely love it.

Loved it!! One of the quaintest bars around! Wonderful bartender. Great to visit anytime of year. Great place to go to get out of the cold in the winter, and a great place to get out of the heat in the summer! Obviously nautical themed!

This restaurant is rustic with old wood beams, on a boathouse type atmosphere that brings your mind to the sea Delicious seafood dishes and some of the restaurants fares displayed

When all you do is drinks, the drinks should be good...and they were. Four of us had excellent margaritas. Nice setting where you choose to be seated inside or outside. Perfect place to start an evening with a couple of drinks before dinner
