If you want the Happy Hour specials - you have to sit in the bar area. We ordered crispy calamari (with crispy onions and jalapenos with lemon aioli $8 - not what my husband was hoping for in the batter but not bad). I ordered the mini pulled pork sandwiches - they were delish! Dinner we waited over 40 minutes... More

Great spot to lunch or dine. Located at a marina with a trendy build out and decor. Good food, service, and drink selection. Best on nice days and sitting on their fabulous deck.

This is a nice place, we dropped in on a Friday. They don't take reservations so we were a little concerned, but the place was half empty. The deck area was closed due to weather. Not much of a view here anyway, just the boats but not water. The service was fast and friendly. I had the BBQ pork sandwich... More

We found this restaurant when we were tasting at Narrows Brewing. The brewery had Boathouse 19 menus for us. We walked over and got all sorts of goodies.The Boathouse Dip and Crispy Calamari were amazing! We will definitely be back!
