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.

I had an amazing after Thanksgiving dinner celebration at the boat house. We decided to go there for brunch. The food was amazing. The service was wonderful. Our server Paige was friendly, patient and very knowledgeable. I particularly liked how the servers would step back giving us space to enjoy each other‘s company as a family but they didn’t totally disappear from our eyesight. So you wouldn’t have to wait long or struggle to find someone when assistance was needed. They were pretty much conveniently right there but not lurking or overcrowding us. Ultimately, my family and I had an amazing time.

Placing our food and beverage order was horrendous! This was due to being required for each party to use their cell phone to order any item as well as see what was in the menu. Changes were very hard to make, such as substitute home fries for fruit on brunch entree.

Thanksgiving brunch at The Boathouse was wonderful. We arrived at our reservation time, and were promptly seated. The staff had asked if there were any special needs, and accommodated our mobility restrictions well. The staff was attentive, but not obtrusive, and appreciative that we were there. The food was outstanding, with a selection from the holiday menu which would delight any appetite.

Great! Beautiful view. Staff was super accommodating bringing us two heaters on a chilly night. My burger was cooked perfectly. My girlfriend’s Lobster Linguine was great! We will definitely come back!

Having to order with our phone is cumbersome and annoying. A forced 20% tip is not okay. We should be able to decide what tip is deserved. The overall price is expensive compared to similar restaurants. Because of these 3 things we will not comeback to the Boathouse.

$150 for two people, no alcohol. Sketchy business practices taint the very good food. What rankles is that 20% gratuity is automatically itemized and applied to the bill (supposedly to ensure faire wages), THEN when the bill comes you are asked to add on an additional optional 20% tip! That cast a sourness to the evening, and we won't be back.
