We stopped in after a bike ride to have lunch at the Boat House. We were seated and waited up promptly. Our entree's arrived quickly. The scallop cakes were large but had a lot of fillers besides the scallops. I had the seafood wrap with lobster and shrimp but was also mixed with a lot of fillers. My husband had... More

I've been here many times and have always loved the food. The service is always excellent. It is located next to a marina with a lovely view of boats coming and going. Yesterday, the restaurant seemed fairly empty so I wasn't surprised by how attentive our waiter was. He recommended the perfect lunch and it was, as usual delicious. It... More

Grew up in nearby Niagara Falls, and have returned for annual visits for over 30 years, with family in nearby Youngstown, NY. This was our first visit to the Wilson Boathouse, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was great, salads were well prepared and fresh. Fried fish was light and crisp. Will return again!

We waited 20 minutes for our Waiter, John to come over to take our order. He was "busy" on cell phone and talking to other employees. There were only 5 other tables seated in the entire restaurant. It wasn't busy at all. Really looked forward to a nice evening with my wife. We left after 20 minutes and went to... More

Went here with the wife and daughter on a car ride during a sunny afternoon saw this place and decided to stop in for lunch on the outside covered deck with a awesome view of the water and boats in the marinea on lake Ontario. The view was great but the food was even better. The wife had the scallops... More

One does not usually go to Wilson, New York (reportedly named after Reuben Wilson, a jazz composer and musician). Wilson is on Lake Ontario, from which on a clear day, on can see Toronto, Ontario, Canada across the lake. The restaurant is located on Tuscarora Bay, a docking area for local boaters. The Wilson Boat House is fine dining on... More

I took 2 friends to the boathouse for lunch mainly because it's has a beautiful harbor view. I hadn't been in years and I wasn't expecting the meal to be anything great because the last few times it was mediocre. What a wonderful surprise to have such a delicious meal. They didn't miss a thing...clean restaurant , prompt service thanks... More

Wilson Boat House has great views of the boat docks and homes along the shores. The outdoor bar is busy and those girls hustle. Minimal wait time to order drinks even when its busy. They usually have a band that is playing on the patio which adds to the fun. We had a big party and they were very accommodating... More

My husband and I were traveling from Michigan to Rochester, NY and happened to stop by for a late lunch. What a delightful surprise. The food and atmosphere was excellent! Wait staff and manager were terrific to chat with. We plan to make this a regular stop when driving through from now on.
