A gorgeous restaurant with a wonderful view. Could of stayed there all day, very much enjoyed ourselves. The drinks options are really varied, the food was really nice but nothing to write home about.

The boat house is a nice waterfront setting in Glen Cove. Easy to get to and easy parking. Nice simple deck overlooking the boat basin. Lunch time food was good but not great.

We came here by jet ski for lunch. We were the only two people in the place. There was a large birthday party outside, but no other diners for lunch. We got the burgers, and they were very good. But they have no White Zinfandel...More
