Loved the place! First time there and I will be coming back next time I am in Richmond. The atmosphere was great as was the setting. The food was phenomenal! It really made the night special! Would highly recommend!

Was excited to bring my family. Our experience was not very pleasant. Server was great, but we had to wait over an hour to get our meal. The server kept apologizing, yet guest that came in after use were eating and leaving before we were served. The manager came over and spoke to us several times but no food. As we prepared to pay our bill, our server let us know that the manager want to do something for us because of the wait. I thought, that's great customer service. When she came over, she handed us a coupon for a free appetizer the next time we come back. I was offended.

Everything was just how I imagined it to be to end my Valentine's week.. Food was great. I had asked to sit close to the fireplace when making the reservation. They delivered. The gentleman serving us was awesome. Thank you Deonte! My girlfriend and I can't wait to come back. Thank you guys for making my Saturday night memorable.

Took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner. Garrett was our waiter and he was super awesome. Had an awesome experience. Love the location. Came from the West End to enjoy the atmosphere and the scenic views of the James. This is our go to spot for special occasions. As always, very pleased.
Great food. Great service. Awesome server. Will ask for Garrett next visit for sure!

This was our 2nd visit to the Boathouse. We were pleasantly greeted at the door by the staff. The young lady that seated us struggled some with our name but was very nice with a warming smile. Our server promptly arrived at the table and introduced himself. He asked if we had any menu questions then gave us ample time to study the menu and make selections. Food arrived in a timely fashion and was hot and delicious. We ordered deserts and they were large and yummy. The entire experience was very nice and we will return again!

We went to celebrate Valentine's Day early, and we were not alone. Several couples had champagne or chocolate covered strawberries, but we just tried the special drink. (mule kick?)
Our appetizer was wonderful---oysters thermidor. They were roasted. On the half shell and topped with lobster and cheese. Excellent!
My husband had the Southern Fried Seafood platter-- very filling. I had the crab cake sandwich with house salad. Both meals were delicious.
It's a great place to go for a special occasion.

Overall pretty good, although I ordered the filet and asked for rare plus and was told the Chef was "black & white" and would only do rare or medium rare. I ordered it medium rare and it came out more medium. When I commented to the waiter he immediately had the manager come over and they not only took it off the bill but also gave us a free dessert. So, the net is GREAT SERVICE and great service recovery!
The Chef should probably be a bit more accommodating though!

Very nice outing... our waitress even though she was stretched thin due to the Valentines crowd made sure we were tended to. Food was very tasty and the Birthday Girl was quite pleased. She was disappointed that the S'mores Cheesecake was unavailable. I was also surprised about this as we had an early seating.

Excellent food, our group has ME lobster, broiled scallops and fried seafood. All good. Desserts excellent too - salted carament creme brule and apple crisp. Bar was busy on a Friday night, cocktail and wine selection nice. VERY noisy, though, so if you're trying to make conversation it's difficult. Service pretty good. A few longer waits between courses and at bar, but very friendly staff.
Beautiful view of the city of Richmond across the river. Very nice in summer to eat outside too.

Food was fantastic as always. Garrett was our waiter and he was amazing! He really made it a great experience for us. Very knowledgeable on the drink and dinner menu. Fast service. Wonderful dinner overall. Will 100% continue going back there.

I was happy with the service. I thought I paid too much for the amount of food I was given however, I understand that here it was more about the name, atmosphere and service. I liked the scenery and my server Mike was patient and very knowledgeable.

This location is preferred by my family. It's convenient, the atmosphere is comfortable laid back, and quiet. It's spacious and has the beautiful view. Everytime I go the food is very good, our waiter John was nice and attentive. The bloody orange mule is my family's go to drink. Will be back soon.

A really nice experience, beautiful day overlooking the James River, service was friendly and punctual but never slow. All were pleased with the starters and entrees, and beverages. We didn't leave room for dessert so can't comment on that. Feeling was very relaxed, leisurely, would definitely come back daytime or evening.

This was our first time at The Boathouse and the experience was outstanding. We were seated immediately and were waited on right away.
The food was delicious and service terrific - including the manager checking in on us. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience
