The view is awesome but the ribs & Saratoga Chips were very pedestrian. It really feels like a place that is riding on its reputation. The lowest bar that I put on a restaurant is that the food be at least as good as how I prepare it and it wasn't even close.

We were seated promptly, drinks and bread arrived in short order. Water glasses were kept full by an attentive but not pestering server. The food as expected was hot, fresh and tasty. An enjoyable Sunday afternoon dinner. We'll be back.

We a reservation through open table and it still took another hour before we were seated. Food was mediocre, service was not anything special. I would've rather gone somewhere else. Very impersonal. Not special at all

It's been a long time since I have been to the boathouse and it will be a long time before I go back. The dress code has gone. People wearing shorts and muscle shirt tops with no sleeves. Young kids sitting at the bar and taking up valuable bar seats. Service was sub par.

Very disappointed in the fact that I had made "reservations" via the web site on Tuesday of that week prior to dining for a party of 2. Entered restaurant at about 6:30 only to be told the wait would be 20 to 30 minutes! What are the on line reservations for???? We were seated after 40 minutes, which I believe was only because a manager looking person walked by and struck up a conversation and we told him of the wait and how disappointing it was since we did had gone on-line to reserve a seat. Within a few minutes we were seated.
That alone would cause me to think twice about suggesting

In town for a fun weekend. Friends suggested we have a meal there. We were not disappointed. Ribs were fantastic. We had a table with a view of the river. Glad to have used the Open Table app to secure a reservation. Thank you Open Table!

After all of the buildup, we were disappointed by the overall experience. We were warned that OpenTable reservations lead to priority seating, but we still ended up waiting 45 minutes. Food was good, which saved the experience.

The location is amazing. I loved the valet parking for $4.00. The wait time was only 10 minutes. The upstairs bar was a nice place to sit and have a drink and look at the river prior to eating dinner. The staff was very cordial and the waiter did a great job. The food was not the best bbq ribs I have ever eaten, but being from the south and living near Memphis for 14 years makes finding good bbq at other places difficult. We enjoyed our date night and will go back.

Waitress brought chipotle sauce. I requested it be replaced with original sauce. She brought another chipotle sauce and would not consider that the sauce dispenser was incorrectly filled. Never got original sauce.

I cannot express how good the sauce on the ribs where, I traveled in for business and was told if I wanted something unique to go here. Atmosphere was pleasant and the view was even better. If I get to come through that way again I will be back for sure.... Also I will be ordering the ribs for travel.

Had to wait 45 minutes even with a reservation. Please was totally unorganized. They lost our order so after another 30 minutes the soup finally came out. We were shoved up against the wall where the servers put in all the orders so the atmosphere was horrible. I have nothing good to say about this place at all. It was a waste of time and money.

The food and service were excellent. Although it was crowded, the noise level was never
intrusive. I am still not clear on the table booking. We reserved days in advance for a Tuesday at 7:30. When we arrived they said we had a 30-40 minute wait. I explained that we booked a table,and we were told all that does is put you in front of the line. I then watched him write our name at the bottom of the list. It worked out the we only waited for 15 min. But now I am totally confused about the advantages of bothering with reserving online.

This experience was terrible. From the time we entered until the time we finished everything was unorganized. When we asked the waitress when we were finally seated (an HOUR after our priority seating time) about the pulled pork nachos, she told us they weren't her favorite and not good. After an hour of looking at the menu and deciding what we wanted, we stuck with them- they were outstanding.
Overall, the food was good- the staff and experience was not good.

I love your place, the service, the view and most of all the food, however, I was disappointed this time to not find BEEF ribs on the menu. I made due with the brisket, but it was not the same. I am a practicing muslim and no longer eat pork, but I do still love ribs. Please return those delicious bits to the menu!
