I go to the Boathouse every time the kids and I go to HHI. I have to admit, the food is not that great, but the view is nice and worth the trip.

Feel it is a bit overpriced for what we would consider OK food. But, if you like to sit outside overlooking the water, listening to music, having a cold one - this is the place for you.

Had some of the best seafood here. Good priced. Enjoyed the whole experience. The wait can be extremely long, so be prepared, but the food is well-worth it!
