Description: Boulder View Tavern is an American restaurant and pub that features a lakeside patio with a beautiful view of Boulder Lake. The atmosphere inside is friendly and good for a relaxed time with family and friends. The restaurant offers a variety of domestic, imported and craft beers, house cocktails and specialty martinis along with weekly specials. Local musicians play live music at the Boulder View Tavern every weekend. Outdoor seating is available on the patio during the summer months. Tavern wings and French steamed mussels are popular appetizers to start with, while the Southwestern Chopped Salad is the restaurant’s specialty salad. For your main course, choose a burger like the 8-ounce certified Black Angus beef burger, bison burger or black bean burger. Our signature entree is Honey Garlic Shrimp served with broccoli and wild rice. After dinner, enjoy a warm waffle with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup or one of our other luscious desserts. We're located in Lake Harmony, PA.

We sat at the bar for Friday Night Happy Hour. The appetizers we ordered were cold and unappetizing. Boneless chicken wings seemed to be microwaved and the centers were ice cold. Spinach dip was also cold. Yuck, AND YUCK. The bartender was very busy and was not able to keep up with drink orders or cleaning off the plates and glasses from bar. A bar back or assistant would be helpful. Frustration was growing amount every patron at the bar. This is close proximity to our friends vacation home and probably won’t be back.

Stayed just around the corner at Midlake. Very convenient ! We had a big group so we made a reservation. We were asked to come a little later than we wanted but it was fine. Service was great!! Bread was yummy and the food was excellent!! Portions were large I had enough leftover for lunch the next day. We would definitely go back when in the area again .!

We arrived around 5:30 on a Friday night. Bar was half full and were greeted within 6 minutes by the bartender.I ordered a beer and The Warden ordered a Sangria which involved a minimal amount of work to make. We ordered apps that served as our dinner and all were good. Here is where the entire visit went downhill. The bar started filling up, and the bartender not only had to serve patrons at the bar, but all of the people sitting at tables around the bar. No bar back....no other help whatsoever.
After seeing how swamped the girl was, my wife decided to simply order a wine, as opposed to a sangria. That Bartender avoided us like plague, for fear of having to make another sangria. We waited a half hour to try to get another drink, to no avail. People ordering a beer or a wine were served twice before we could have a chance to order once in that time frame.
Management needs to get more help !
The bar is pleasing to the eye, with a nice view of Boulder Lake, but the servers aren't that friendly, and the ability of said servers to actually bring food and drinks to the patrons is poor, at best.
Probably won't return due to one bad, overly worked bartender.

On our trip to Split Rock Resort we visited a number of times Boulder View.
We love the view of Boulder Lake.
The bar menu is wonderful.
Dinner in the restaurant is very good.
The downstairs patio outside is also special.
If you visit the area make sure you go to Boulder View.
