The cuisine of the Boathouse, created with distinctive flair is refined and contemporary, with an underlying element that echoes the classical French tradition of Escoffier.

The Boathouse experience begins with a drive along the shores of beautiful West Grand Traverse Bay and its sparkling blue waters.

When you dine with us, you get the best of both worlds: We are both locavores and connoisseurs of what the rest of the world has to offer, so you get the freshest, finest ingredients from near and far. Owner Doug Kosch adheres to the "farm to table" concept.

There was a loud group of men sitting right next to us, and at first we thought it might not be the best atmosphere for a romantic dinner, but we got used to the noise level and it turned out fine. Extra dirty martinis were made well, and the wines recommended by our waiter tasted delicious. We had the chateaubriand for two, oysters rockefeller, dessert coffee, and ice cream. The sides were all cooked to perfection. After dinner, we went to the tables outside next to the building and sat and chatted with a group of women that had been seated next to us, and hung out until the sun went down. Our waiter continued to check on us and bring drinks while sitting there. We will definitely come back if we're ever in Traverse City again.

The hostess is often the first and last person your customers see - maybe remind her of that. Our waitress was great and the food was amazing. Thank you.

I have had Kobe beef, in the past, and it melted in my mouth. This did not! We sent my husband’s back because the texture and taste was like roast beef. The service and ambiance was excellent😊 I recommend the restaurant just caution you not to order the Kobe beef filet!

Enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner meal of small plates, including their signature asparagus tempura, whitefish pate, Yellowfin tuna tartare and a classic wedge salad. Wonderful all around! Attentive server Emma was always on top of everything. Love making that one of our vacation experiences.

Brian our waiter was excellent and the food is delicious.

I booked the reservation online and added in the event box that it was for a birthday. When we were seated, there was a birthday card and a little box of chocolate on the table. Nice touch! Darius, our waiter, took great care of us during the entire evening. He helped the evening very memorable for my family. The food was phenomenal. From the appetizers to the soups to the main meals. We all had some style of the Wagyu beef. The flavor of all the food was exceptional. I would highly recommend this restaurant wanting an out of the ordinary, special evening. Make sure you review the menu online first like we did so you don't have sticker shock when you get the bill. It is worth the price but helpful to know ahead of time what to expect.

The quality of food and service at The Boathouse make it our very favorite restaurant. Brian provided great service and was very attentive. The oysters were delectable. The morel bisque was full of beautiful and tasty morels. The steaks were cooked perfectly. We always leave satisfied with a great meal and a wonderful dining experience. C’est Magnifique!

I felt like I was going to break my chair when I tried to lean back or get up which was amplified by the fact that my back was at a busy walkway… made the experience pretty uncomfortable. I read great reviews and was very excited to try this restaurant. I was surprised to see “Ora King Salmon” on the menu and was very disappointed with it. $48 for a conservatively portioned and previously frozen filet. To add insult to injury, through my ignorance I had assumed “Ora” was supposed to be a river/area I was unfamiliar with.. after googling why it seemed to be different from all of the King Salmon I’ve enjoyed in the past, I discovered that this wasn’t King Salmon… this was a genetically modified, farm raised, previously frozen, imported from New Zealand, tiny filet of a new, man made breed of fish called ‘Ora King Salmon’. They put Ora on the menu so I won’t complain to them directly but for $50 I’d expect non gmo, wild caught salmon not McDonald’s standards of quality. Never coming back.

I have never had "happy anniversary" said to me so many times in one day - that was nice. The menu included gluten-free and vegetarian options but as a diabetic, I don't understand why this and many other restaurants do not have a low-carb option.
