We love this place so much, we ate there twice on our last visit and would've gone another time if we could have. The food is delicious, great view on the Arkansas River, and great service. They have a patio if you have dogs with you.

Was there for lunch and wife had a great burger and exceptional fries. My beef asado burrito was lacking in beef and was mostly wrap. It looked better than it was. Service was good however I overheard the waitress telling another diner about the specials. There was no mention of specials in our service. Might return as the wife's burger... More

While I'm glad your wife's burger hit the mark, I wish your burrito had impressed more. We're all about stuffed, delicious burritos, but it sounds like something was a bit off with your order. The specials should've also been presented, and I'm sorry for this oversight. I know we can do better, and I hope we get the chance to... More

I ate here with my family while visiting them in Colorado; I am from Phoenix so a beautiful river view (one that actually has water in it) is a rarity for me. I loved it. The drinks were delicious and the food, I had the chicken strips, they were delicious. It was a great time and I look forward to... More

We make a point of eating at the Boathouse every time we are in Salida. They serve excellent food and have a great selection of beer! The buffalo/chorizo chile & the green chile are superb! We've never been disappointed yet! Highly recommend this restaurant!

If you're visiting Salida, there's no better place to grab a bite to eat than the Boathouse! Located right next to the river, they provide many seating options with a good view. The food is great and there seems to be something for everyone. Staff is friendly and provides great service. Can't wait to come back.

I love sitting just above the river, sipping a beer, and sharing a plate of duck tostadas! The nachos, burgers, and fish tacos are all good as well. Really haven't had a bad meal yet. The servers and bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly. I love taking visitors there!
