We called in here to celebrate a birthday and ordered the Mussels, Sardines, Crab Claws and Lobster which came a massive platter, with new potatoes as a side order and some bread. We managed to eat most of it but there was so much of it all. I can certainly say the food was brilliant here and we will be back as enjoyed it so much. The only thing we felt that let the meal down was the service, we were never asked through out the meal if everything was ok, and the clothes the waitress was wearing, jeans and casual top!! Surely for a nice setting and excellent food we would have expected better dressed staff. But that said its only a small thing which of course didn't effect the food.

Returned to the Boathouse following a successful visit last year (and the year before). As always, the folks that run the place are very welcoming. Prices are a little 'toppy', but the atmosphere is always good and the food excellent (excepting the spider crab!).

Childrens menu is very limited (though they always welcome children?).

Will visit again next year!

I was impressed when I saw the lobster tank and realised how fresh the food would be as well as the great location. The claw meat was great but the body flesh was tough, probably overlooked. Also, it would have been better if the little creature had been deveined and not left for the customer to do rather than have it's innards spread over a large portion of the tail meat. I did mention to the waitress that the tail meat had been tough and was told that is because they have to kill the animal first. Somehow I doubt that. I agree withe SteveC28, the salads were a bit tired.
