The Boathouse restaurant and event spaces wed the town’s impeccable waterfront views with authentic, locally-sourced cuisine. From the classically Southern shrimp and grits featuring sausage from Surry, VA to pizza made with authentic Italian recipe, the menu is distinctive and, most importantly, delicious.

The $5/pp fee reserves seating at one of these tables. There is a 20% service charge included, which allows us to pay a professional wage to our service teams. No additional gratuity is necessary.

My wife and I and some friends tried the Boathouse tonight. The experience was certainly lessened by having to use the Toast system to order the food and pay. It presents itself (and prices itself) as a upscale restaurant . It was a pain to get the app set up and enter credit card info etc. lt's also kind of a pain o order on the app.

The food was mediocre. Our food came several minutes earlier than our friends food even though we ordered about the same time.

The worst thing is the AUTOMATIC 20% GRATUITY THAT THEY NEVER MENTIONED TO US! After I had paid my wife noticed that there was a notice on the back of the plastic sign that was sitting on the table. It was super irritating. The manager said it was put in place by the owners and there was nothing he could do.

We wont be going back again.

We have been enjoying the Boathouse for years! Last night was my boyfriend's request for his birthday and it was the BEST experience we have had to date! Our servers, Billy and Paige were attentive and helpful! The manager was running food to tables and SO nice and kind. Everyone we passed by on staff said hi and was friendly! We even received a special bday treat! Billy recommended his favorites from the menu which made me choose the Pan Seared Salmon, something different and I am so glad I did as it was AMAZING! Thank you Boathouse for giving us such a special experience on such a special day! We appreciate you the amazing customer service experience we had last night!

It was nice looking out on the reservoir and very pretty. The food was bland an overpriced for the quality. They were out of several items. For some reason they were playing loud pop music during Sunday brunch. Skip the biscuits!

We love this place, however, we had a few issues this time. One was our fault where we double tipped. When you require an automatic 20% service charge, then why ask for another tip option when settling the bill. I had a margarita pizza and added mushrooms and onions. I got very sick when I got home. I am wondering if the mushrooms were tainted in some way. The service was excellent and our appetizers were awesome. My husband did not get sick, so I know it was not the appetizers. He had fish and chips, which were excellent.

Went for a few drinks and starters with a friend. The reservation process was simple. The place is gorgeous! The drinks were great, and I definitely felt I got my money’s worth. The Brussel sprouts were AMAZING! Perfectly crisp and a little smokey. I also loved the QR system for ordering and paying. I can’t wait to return

The restaurant is in a beautiful area perfect for leisurely dinner or even drinks.

The waiter was responsive and helpful .

The food was as good as most upscale restaurants in downtown Richmond .

The iPad ordering for everything turned my wife and I off and was something constantly to work with rather than enjoy ambience and relax .

We have dinner out 3 or more times per week in Richmond area and the food at the restaurant is very good by comparison .
