We usually come here for the happy hour which has great options for yummy appetizers and good drinks. Enjoyed many meals out on the dock which offers a great view of the narrows bridge and a relaxing atmosphere. Worth visiting

It's great to be able to go by boat to restaurants in the area and dock side mooring is not always plentiful in the south Puget Sound. Boathouse 19 gets a plus for their dock but that's where it ends. Both my husband and I...More

This hidden gem captured my heart and tastebuds! A woman who's been coming here for decades introduced me...and I was thrilled. We had a great lunch. Salads are generous, fresh and perfectly prepared. My companion loved the chowder and I had some of the best...More

The food and the view are great but the service was terrible. Our waitress was very nice, but I had to ask three times for the outdoor heater to be turned on. It took over 30 min for our food to arrive. I had to...More

We were actually at the Brewery next door and was told that this was the place to get some lunch and still eat it at the brewery. I had the Jambalaya. Highly recommended.

Shocked this place has decent reviews. Maybe people just drink here? Clams were bad, salad and french fries below average at best, and the veggie sandwich was really weak on Un-toasted store bought bread. Service slow. Will not be back.

From Gig Harbor you take Route16, the Narrows Bridge. Take the Jackson Street exit and head south on Jackson (right turn I believe). At 19th Ave. Turn right and follow 19th into the marina. Boathouse is on the right side... More
