Almost all if not all, Boathouse Restaurants will NOT take reservations for a window table with a view, they want to save it for their walk ins. Strike 1. Why not provide specialized service to your patrons who take the time to make reservations and...More

If you are going to the Richmond location then get onto Bridgeport Road from the highway and head west. The entrance to Boathouse Parking is after you've crossed No 3 Road and immediately BEFORE you get to the overpass
