The food was wonderful but the slow service really put a damper on the whole dining experience. Our dinner took forever to come out.

friendly service, not rushed, good menu choices, we have had dinner there many times. We walked because it is near where we stay.

Returned this year because prior visits were favorable. I should have suspected something when we entered and the place was virtually empty. Seated quickly, we waited almost 15 minutes for waiter to appear. Drinks were brought and orders were taken with OK timing. We then waited over 25 minutes for our waiter to come over again, but he was too busy chatting with folks at another table. We got up and left.

After visiting St. Maarten for 15 years the Boathouse was always the first restaurant we went to. Did that again this year and it will be the last time I ever step foot in there. Food, AWFUL, Service, TERRIBLE. Best waiter they had, GONE. This was always a good place to dine but it has gone all the way to the bottom of any list I would have for restaurants in St. Maarten . It's so sad to see the Boathouse hit rock bottom. With so many good restaurants in St. Maarten, please don't waste your time and money trying this one.
