Happy Father's Day!

Bring your dad to our house this weekend and treat him to a FUN lunch or dinner out with the family. We will make his favorite fresh-off-the-boat seafood dish to order OR something fresh-off-our Chef’s Specials Menu! Baby Back Ribs, Prime Rib, and big steaks are all in the works. If you can’t make it on the day, gift certificates are always available here too!


May the blizzards be gone & St. Patrick’s festivities be-on at the Boat House this weekend!

If you are looking for a taste of tradition, our Chefs will delight you with a tender corned beef & cabbage entrée to celebrate in style. We’ll also be toasting the luck of the Irish with a pint of Guinness or glass of fine whiskey at the bar. Bring your family & friends!

We look forward to seeing you!  


Happy Birthday Boat House Grille!

This Tuesday, October 17th we celebrate our first year with a big shout out of THANKS to facebook friends, guests, family + crew for helping us set sail on a fun new dining adventure on the Great Marsh of Essex. We hope you will join us at lunch or dinner on Tuesday and enjoy a free appetizer for the table in honor of this special occasion. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

On the boat, on the trail, on the beach, on the links - it’s time to relax and have some fun with friends and family. We invite you to make the most of your holiday weekend and leave the cooking to us! Come to our house for some fresh Essex clams, seafood dishes, oyster bar, salads, steaks, pasta, burgers & homemade desserts. We look forward to seeing you!
