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.

We were seated outside and the view of the bridge and water was wonderful. The food we ordered (fish tacos and cedar planked salmon) were both wonderful. The tacos came with Mexican street corn that was the best. Our server was very attentive and friendly.

Stopped in for drinks and appetizers with friends/family. Had an awesome waiter!!!! (Unfortunately, can't remember his name) Calamari and lobster dip was great.

A waterfront restaurant & bar tucked away in a corner of the marina, very much a mariner's haven. Well appointed with great views and waterside dining. I had cedar plank sockeye with au gratin potatoes and my wife had the fresh grilled fish tacos. Both...More

I'd like to give this place 4.5 stars really. First, the good: it's a stunning view. Do you really need more? Lol. The food was outstanding. Really, very good. First, I had a dark and stormy (like a Moscow mule but with dark rum). It...More

We visit the Boathouse regularly and we enjoy sitting on the deck, especially when it's warm. The menu is fairly standard, but it's good and the wait staff has been attentive. The restaurant can be loud inside so if anyone has trouble hearing I suggest...More

If you want the Happy Hour specials - you have to sit in the bar area. We ordered crispy calamari (with crispy onions and jalapenos with lemon aioli $8 - not what my husband was hoping for in the batter but not bad). I ordered...More

Great spot to lunch or dine. Located at a marina with a trendy build out and decor. Good food, service, and drink selection. Best on nice days and sitting on their fabulous deck.

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
