Another visit to this restaurant and it did not disappoint. As usual, the food was fresh, tasty and service staff were efficient and friendly! Looking forward to our next visit 💜

Staff were very efficient and accommodating of my elderly mother who was celebrating her birthday.
We do hope you all had a nice time, especially your mother. Hope to see you again soon.

Good quality fresh food and excellent location. They do a lot of things that are not on the menu eg cocktails, table across from us had children that looked like they catered for them with a portion of fish and chips for the kids.

One of my favourite restaurants and without a doubt the best presented and freshest oysters served in a restaurant 🥂🍾

I booked 50% off through fork special offers. I’ve been to boathouse before and their food is amazing. I recommended their potato chips and pie, the best !!!

Service last night was really good, well done to wait staff. Enjoyed our entree's but main meals slightly disappointing. My wifes prawns (an entrée had as a main) were mushy and just didn't seem fresh. I had their signature snapper pie and the entire dish was cold and seemingly under seasoned (perhaps that was my taste preference but I've had this dish a few times prior and never thought that before). Good atmosphere and nice views of course.

Been here twice, both time we were served with excellent service from the staff! Recommend to dine during the day, the view is to die for. You get the freshest oysters here, and food never disappoint!

Had to try the famous snapper pie - and really it exceeded my expectations. Great service, great view, great food.
So glad you loved the Snapper Pie Kim! You must visit again soon!
