Visited as a party of eight - 3 adults and 5 kids. The restaurant was busy but the service was still good. The location is lovely although parking was difficult. The food was ok, nothing amazing just ok.. Fine for a family lunch, kids felt the chips could have been cooked longer.

Looking for somewhere different on Saturday to eat decided on the boathouse. It was quiet for a Saturday. Shown to a table quickly good choices on the menu and reasonable prices. Portion sizes are quite large. Staff hang around a bit maybe because it was quiet. Food served promptly and well presented. Can be a little dark depending where you... More

Visited for lunch. Really good service from friendly staff. Very gluten free friendly. The fish soup with a glass of Sauvignon blanc was superb.

We did not have long on the Island so the situation of The Boat House was ideal, right near ferry terminal. Good service pleasant staff. Two of our group ordered scallops I ordered local beefburger. I should have ordered scallops. The burger was dry and tired, the scallops lovely. Good wine selection. All in all pleasant experience

The place was packed out, even at low season, we saw this as a good sign and we were not disappointed. We shared a starter of cod and crab fish cakes which were excellent, slightly chargrilled with... More

Only a little sun today, but the food and service are as good as ever! Only had sandwiches and drinks, but the quality and presentation is second to none for a small operation. Even more delighted to discover "Millie" can come on the deck by the back stairs.
