You expect Greta Garbo to saunter in and order a whiskey with ginger ale on the side. Great atmosphere, skilled bartender, comfy seats, good drinks, no hassles.

Drinks only here...and classics only as well...but well worth it. The ambiance is phenomenal, and those that work here pleasant and nice. Drinks are strong.

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.

The Boat House is very compact. There may be room on the upper floor for a small bridal shower but you would have to ask the proprietors. Also, they do not serve food.
