Terrific view of the harbour, good food, newly expanded kitchen to accommodate the large crowds. Staff is very friendly. great patio overlooking the water for a great summer venue with live music.

This is my favourite place to go for either a drink and a snack on a nice sunny day or a nice meal. I always take my friends and family here when they come for a visit. The atmosphere is great, the staff are friendly and well trained, and I have never been disappointed yet with the food. There is... More

Ate here on two occasions. Patio is nice as if offers a view of the Harbour. Food is average and I found it to be expensive. Staff not overly friendly .

We like to go in the summer and sit outside with a nice cold beer. Live music is always enjoyable. Usually get the Margarita pizza with a side Caesar salad. But anything I have had has been good. Nice to sit and look out at the dock and the water.

Ate here on two occasions a lunch with two other friends and a family birthday party of about 20 people. The servers are nice and good at their jobs. Nothing extraordinary. The food is average but it doesn't match the price point. I found it to be a very expensive place to go and have a few drinks and a... More

We got engaged at this restaurant 36 years ago. This was our first time back (because we don't live in the area) and we returned with 14 other friends and family. Everyone was very pleased with their meal and we had a wide assortment of dishes. We all got HOT food, served within one or two minutes of each other... More

We arrived ln town hungry and ended up at the Boathouse. Other than the location , it has nothing special to offer. The menu features typical bar food. The main bar area was quite noisy and that was before the live entertainment started. We sat in the back room so we could hear each other talk. That room was freezing.... More

I ate at the Boathouse Eatery twice during my recent stay in Midland. The first night I went the weather was lovely and I ate on the patio. The service was very slow; I waited a long time to even give a drink order and hadn't been given a wine menu. The food, however, was delicious as was the presentation,... More

Nice atmosphere. Neat restaurant. The special was Crab alfredo and it was delicious. I had the Alaskan Haddock fish and chips and it was delicious as well. We will return.
