Food Really good. Service Quick,Large chunk bread delivered prior to meal. Happy they did Bottled Stella and cans of Guinness. Price reasonable as this area has minimal restaurants with all the rest charging very high prices for a meal including the Sheraton hotel.

There are not that many restaurants within walking distance of the Sheraton where I was staying. Walked to the Boathouse for dinner. Had a salad and the fried seafood sampler platter. Not bad but not exceptional.

Just lucked out, we were staying on the island and found out that the restaurant gives a prime rib dinner on your birthday. We had a great dinner, the relaxing atmosphere and views made it.

You're paying for location. Views from tables over a marina. Handicap entrance via elevator through the kitchen. Service adequate on slow day. Food not very interesting or good.
