My husband and I stopped here for a quick drink after dinner on a Monday night and were able to get a table right away. The bartender was very nice and my Tom Collins was delicious. Would definitely recommend stopping by!

Our waitress Kat was absolutely hilarious, and very accommodating to our various dietary needs (one vegan and one dairy free). Thanks to her we had a really fun evening, and thanks to Charlie and Leon, the food was delicious!

We had an excellent and fun dinner the first time we visited so we went back again and the second dining experience was even better than the first! The food was delicious, and Kat truly made the dining experience one of laughter and good cheer! I highly recommend this restaurant both for the food and the wonderful servers!

The building is quite entertaining as it's made to look like an actual boat. Inside it is like a ski lodge meets fine dining atmosphere. I liked it but I only had drinks there so I don't know about the food first-hand. However, the plates I've seen looked delicious.

Food was great , fresh tasting and salad with burger was nice. I saw Nutella / Oreo cheesecake on desert menu so saved room from diner and I... More

We had some burgers and drinks in the Snowboat and had a great experience. The burgers were cooked on a barbeque in their outdoor space and freshly made from quality meat. We also tried the crab burger that was well received. We were happy, but if you like your burgers English style (over-done) then ask, meat in Switzerland is usually... More
