Exceptional food. Amazing appetizers. We tried pork potstickers, stuffed clams and stuffed pretzel bowl with crab. All delicious. Our entrees were chicken piccata, glazed salmon, veggie wrap, prime rib sandwich on garlic bread and jambalaya. We also had the seafood bisque which has crab and...shrimp in it. Every item was delicious. They surprised us with a chocolate sundae for our daughter and sang her happy birthday. The food and service were exceptional. They have an outside eating area and the lake is right behind the restaurant. Our sever Anna was great!More

Had lunch here while in town for a few days. The sandwiches we had were very good. Also had two draft beers which had great flavor and carbonation, signs of a clean tap system. Sat outside on the deck, which offered a minor view of...the lake. You can walk to the lake from here and watch the boats come in and out. Staff was friendly. Would definitely eat here again.More

Would recommend, The place was clean, the wait staff was friendly and the food was good. The rooms were sectioned off for Covid safety in a way that did not detract from the dining experience.

Stopped to have a lunch and were not disappointed. Seating was socially distanced, safe and comfortable. Eric, out waiter, was over the edge, pleasant and efficient. French Onion Soup was great size, and we were able to share our Buckhorn sandwich, prepared to perfection. Got...an extra 10% discount from our Timeshare and it just doesn't get much better that this. Will stop by again before leaving town.More

We ate there after a boat ride and the food was great. I had a buckhorn sandwich out of this world and the best seafood bisque ever in my life. The prices are a little high but the food is worth it.

We had dinner here recently and enjoyed their Cajun fish and chips as well as a chicken parmesan. For appetizers, we had the seafood bisque and the French onion soup that were also quite good. Social distancing was being well enforced. Staff was attentive.

The food was great, we had both lunch and dinner. Not crowded in. We ate on the patio and then inside.

We’ve eaten at the Boat House several times over several visits to the lake. You can’t go wrong. Either lunch or dinner, they have plenty of choices and the service has always been good. What we like best is dining out on the rear deck,...weather permitting. We keep going back. You will too.More

Service was excellent and food was good not fantastic but good. Atmosphere was plain so would not suggest for a romantic evening. They made a good Martini

Been to the Boathouse before for happy hour and small plates in bar area. This time we decided to share an entree. Our server advised it was Prime Rib special day. We asked if we could share one dinner between us... of course she said....That was the first a many pleasantries from her and the entire experience. First - The prime rib...from the portion size, tenderness and flavor was great. Second - The single entree including the salad, beef and baked potato was presented as if they were separate entrees...as opposed to getting the “extra” plate for sharing purposes. Big thanks to kitchen staff. Third- the server was very informative wrt craft beers ... and attentive which was a bit challenging for her, as we were seated on a high top in bar area and she had other tables in the dining room to serve. My only regret as is I did not get her name... but it was Saturday night and we were the couple who asked about Benji. Hope to see you again... thanks. Bob and Marcia - Carlisle PA.More

To my knowledge none of the local boat tours allow unscheduled stops. However the Boat House does have available dock space for individual watercraft.
