We read about the good reviews for this restaurant and drove there to try it. Had fish curry for lunch. The curry taste good but unfortunately, they used tuna and it was very hard and dry. The pumpkin pickles side dish was good. Service was quick and the bill does not come with a service charge.

This buffet restaurant has a good location, but the food was only so so. The soft drinks were overpriced and unless you ordered anything the staff didn't bring you what they promised to. Try some place else for creole buffet, because it's worth trying.

We were staying at the Savoy hotel and wanted to go try something local - our taxi driver recommended Boat House so we went. Its a walking distance of 3 minutes more or less, offering a buffet i really liked the grilled fish!

We were told to try this "Authentic Creole Buffet"- What a let down ! Although the restaurant is in a prime position , we did not enjoy the food at all - watery, tasteless and it seems like everything was pickled ! Definitely Not recommended!
