“Scary people”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

That folks show up climbing out of the backs of trucks drinking beer from the bottle tells you all you need to know.

That the place employs a bouncer tells you more than you need to know.

“Nice place, great deck, poor food”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

You know that when you pull up to park and see employees carrying large bags of frozen fish, chicken, etc into the kitchen entrance it is not good. We dined here June 8 for dinner and had halibut. It was OK but clearly frozen reheat. The prime rib looked like a shoe and the diner next to us sent it back. The food was at best OK but here is the whopper...the four dinners we bought two halibuts, one fish and chips and one Mahi dinner was $135 without tip. Crazy for plated frozen food. Service was good but please the cool view and deck only go so far....go order a drink and small plate and sit out there...save your money for somewhere else. I think this year they renamed the place the boathouse but every year it seems to change.

“Awful food, great view and good servers”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

Maybe it was a bad night and I've been there before. The food has never been anything to rave about, but this time it was terrible. The view of Lake Almanor, though, is superb, as usual. The bartender and servers are great. The crowd is great. I'd go there again, but I'll have low expectations.

“Excellent scenery , lakefront, bar and grill”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

This is the only restaurant around the entire lake almanor area that has views of the lake!!
It has a really fun bar, music most weekends, and the restaurant has a huge outdoor deck that sits right on the lakefront. The management is excellent and the food wonderful.
Not much else need be said!!
