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!
