Went there for dinner a few times and food was just ok not outstanding. Meals a bit overpriced. Service was pretty good though. Nothing special. I would rather have Fish and Chips at Captain George’s in town. Much cheaper and better quality.

Best seafood in the area! Lovely view of the Bay of Quinte as well. I've been there for my birthday alone and with friends. This restaurant does not disappoint in food, service, or friendly and helpful staff.

Always great food. Never disappoints. Fish is battered to perfection. Salads are tasty. The beer is always cold and the service is fantastic. Can't wait to bring the boat!

Awesome food and service at this restaurant. Lobster roll was delicious as well as the Halibut nuggets. Been there a few times, always consistent.

We love the Boathouse. Never a bad meal. You don't have to be a seafood lover. The whole menu is great.

Response from Greg A | Property representative |
The Boathouse accepts reservations, and it is always a good idea to have one just in case but it is not mandatory. The only exception is there are no reservations made for the patio.
