The Boathouse at Sunday Park Ratings and Reviews

Great experience! I took my mother for her birthday and from the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The staff did a great job of making us feel welcome and acknowledging my mother's special day. The food was incredible and everything was seasoned, hot, and well presented. The location is absolutely beautiful and service was efficient.

Had an early dinner there on Sunday, and the indoor/outdoor space is incredible. Watching the sun set as we sipped wine and talked was perfect. The food was excellent (we had the rock fish and the artichoke crab dip). We will be returning!

Excellent service! Food was great! Waiter was very helpful in his recommendations. For us, it is not an everyday dining establishment. This based on cost alone. The food was well worth it though. The location is great for a pre or post meal walk along the lake. It really adds to the experience.

I ordered crab Benedict. When it came the egg was raw. Not just over easy, the white was not cooked. When I told the waiter he said a poached egg was supposed to be that way. I love to cook and I know better. They took it back and redid it(after my husband finished his meal). The second time it was perfectly cooked. I would think for the money, they would have offered to comp me something but not even an offer! In general everything else was excellent

The Boathouse at Sunday Park is a friends and family favorite - especially when the weather is warm. Sitting outside to watch the sun set, and enjoy a good meal, is always great! The steak special was a favorite for most of our table. The crab cakes, the organic spinach salad and also the wedge salad, are always delicious.

This was our first time back after a not very good experience about 2 years ago. And we are very glad that we came back! Excellent food, outstanding wait staff. We had crab cakes and Norwegian salmon and both were excellent. Beautiful view, excellent staff and excellent food. Great time.

The food was excellent. Nikki our server was very knowledgable on the menu and wines. The calamari was delicious and both sauces that come with it were excellent they both had the right amount of spice. My husband used the aioli from the calamari on his salmon. We had the salmon simply grilled and blackened with jalapeno aioli. It was delicious. We are looking forward to our next trip to the boat house!

Great find on Swift Creek Reservoir. Beautiful setting with a great atmosphere. Expansive menu, wine list, and a lot of tasty beers. Divided nicely to allow intimate dining or large groups. Indoor and outdoor bar areas had plenty going on! Food was awesome, highly recommended.

We went to the Boathouse at Sunday Park for my birthday and, admittedly, reserved our spot a bit late. I was hesitant about eating late, but the view of the lake changed all of that. We arrived a bit early and they sat us outside before our reserved time - just in time to watch the sunset over the lake! It was perfect.
Food was delicious, as was the wine. Pizookie dessert is rich and indulgent, but ohhh so worth it. The band was great - I always love a steel drum! It was a bit hot that night, especially as the deck started to fill up, and there were some flies keeping us company until the sun went down but overall, it was a really great experience!

Incredible scenery, excellent food! I recommend the rockfish and creme brûlée! Went to the boathouse for my first date with my husband and returned for our first wedding anniversary. Staff was attentive and pleasant and the manager even stopped by the table a few times to welcome us and treated us to a free dessert for our special evening! Thanks for two great and memorable evenings, Boathouse at Sunday Park. Can't wait to return!

Lovely location, outside seating overlooking reservoir was perfect, grapefruit appetizer was a bit skimpy and burnt, 1/2 carafe of mimosa was 1/2 ice...not a good combo...but entrees were delicious (shrimp and grits, omelette)

The outdoor section couldn't be more lovely; it's on a lake. Typically, food at such a picturesque setting is lame but that is not the situation here. It's worth visiting here just for the seafood. Also, there is a terrific band that knows how to play at the correct volume--loud enough so that it's not confused with background music, but not so loud as to interfere with conversation.

The boathouse is beautiful, but we were very disappointed in our service. Our initial waitress was great but was cut loose because it was slow.Our second server was nice as well but failed to come back to our table after we placed our food order. Our food was delivered by a runner and we were never asked how things were or offered to have another round of drinks. I actually mentioned to the server that I thought he had forgotten us and he said he was getting drinks for another area? It was at least a half hour before we were even greeted again. At that point we were ready to leave. Not the hospitality I was expecting.

This was our first time dining here...I loved being able to book a table online. The restaurant was great! The view was very pleasant and unexpected (we have not lived in the Richmond area very long). Our friends will be visiting soon and we wanted to check the place out before we took them there....the brunch was fabulous and since our friends are a little more on the "picky" side I am positive they will find dining here as enjoyable as we did! The brunch menu I thought was very broad - something for everyone. We will definitely be returning....and when our friends visit from Wisconsin....this will definitely be a part of our itinerary for them.

Brought a group of teenagers who were being rewarded for being a hard working volunteer group. Service was slow but food was good. Advertised dessert which was pushed hard by waiter turned out to be not available. Good but not outstanding restaurant. Still would recommend to friends.

The food was great as usual. Which is why we were there two days prior to this visit. The service was exceptional! The manager, Katie went above and beyond our expectations. The waitress was awesome also. I can't think of her name. We will be back soon! :)

The food was very good, had the cab and artichoke appetizer a couple of entrees and a dessert. The scallops that came with my dinner were probably the best scallops I have ever had. Highly recommend the restaurant.

My girlfriend and I were celebrating our one year anniversary of being together. I knew I wanted to marry her since the moment I saw her and wanted the perfect place to do it. I made a reservation time to coincide with the sunset which was absolutely breathtaking. Our server was wonderful and very helpful describing the menu. The food was amazing and the drinks were delicious. I couldn't imagine a better place to ask her to marry me. And she said yes!
