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.

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

We stayed nearby and ate here a few times on our trip. Their family style breakfast was good and at a great value. We docked and dined for late lunch one day and had a burger and sandwich which were also delicious. Prices were all...reasonable.More

Mason needs remedial customer service skills. She was abrupt when informing me I had to wait outside for my takeout order. When I asked if this was something new, she sarcastically responded “Since COVID.” I told her I was a frequent take out customer and...this was not the case the last time I was in the restaurant. She said “In the last month.” No eye contact, no respect — nothing! I said she might want to try to improve her tone and her manners when speaking to customers and she replied “Thanks for telling me.” Though I noticed her name necklace, I asked her name and she said “Mason.” Disappointing.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.
