Ordering online was very stressful. We had one check so I had to order everything. It was not easy to make substitutions. I’m not sure why a 20% service charge is warranted since we did our own ordering. I have been to many nice restaurants during the pandemic that use the online menu but not ordering or adding the service charge. I don’t think all I just mentioned is worth going to the Boathouse.
Fantastic evening! We got their super early but the staff got us seated early and held our requested table until the previous guests had left. The service was the best we’ve experienced at Rockett’s Landing across the board. Food was 5 star and we could not have been more satisfied.
We had a poor Boathouse experience at another location; we knew that the OG location wouldn’t let us down. A+++ oyster Rockefeller too!
With covid it makes things so tough but this place was already expensive and now the charge to use the app instead of a waitress/waiter taking our order is ridiculous.
I ordered the shrimp tacos and a wedge salad and the food was simply delicious! David our server was friendly and professional!
Way over priced 140.00 for two people, only drinking ice tea.
Did not like having to order everything on your phone when there was wait staff right there. Especially since you have to put in everything each time you ordered something. They include 20% tip which would be fine if you’re not ordering everything on your phone. Also don’t think the tables were 6 feet apart. Won’t be back.
Apologies for the difficulty you encountered with our contactless ordering on your most recent visit. It was put in place to abide by best practices laid out in the state reopening guidelines, because we take the safety of our guests and staff seriously. Please know that we set up all tables to allow at least 6 feet between diners, and will be double-checking this this week.
Amazing new system food came out in time and hot!! Had a large party and they did a great job keeping track!!!
Nice space and view . Great food. Staff could have been more attentive.
Great service and great food! Prices are quite expensive once it all is added up but definitely worth it even if it’s just a small annual get together or a few drinks! Lovely view and very COVID considerate. I wish I could afford to eat here everyday!
Good food and drinks. Great way to end the year!!!
Great venue as always. Seating by fireplace was very warm recommended they move table for next seating. They cut the flame off to accommodate temp.
Our head waiter was Mary; she did excellent job welcoming us and making us feel very comfortable. Food was excellent; served very professionally.
Jazz Trio gave the New Year's Eve dinner awesome ambiance (the volume level of the music and choice of the music was perfect).
Hostess and other staff was checking on us making sure we had everything we needed.
We had excellent time and I am so glad I made the decision to bring my family to celebrate to Boathouse!!!!
So I get the Covid -19 problem ordering from yiur phone very cool and Easy but the service for the prices was horrible you can’t have appetizer dishes still in the table and being Main course out without clearing the table that’s a big NO NO... I over tip just because being in the business for over 30 years....
Ok except for no regular hot tea to have with dessert only flavored teas.
What an amazing experience. The oysters were outstanding and exceeded my expectations! The filet was cooked perfectly and cut like butter. I can't wait to eat here again!
We are regular’s at The Boathouse at Rockett’s Landing, but this past Saturday was very disappointing. I ordered shrimp & grits, which I’ve had before, and it have no grits and was all sauce with three swimming shrimps.
Ordered two rounds of cocktails and we had issues with both rounds.
Not sure what is up but it was an expensive night, with not good service and not good food.
Not the typical experience at this restaurant.
Request Derek, he’s amazing. Definitely will assist with the experience you’re looking for!!
Very good food. Polite and professional wait staff.
Service is very well paced.
The process of ordering from the phone and having to pay for each time your order a course of food or drinks was highly annoying. Our family of five spent so much time looking at our phones to coordinate an order through one of us that it took so much away from the dinner experience. And it seemed to make no sense as to why this was necessary as the servers brought the food to the table; this added zero effect on social distancing from the staff assuming this was the intention of the process. My wife should have been paid some of the 20% service charge that was added to our bill as she did a lot of the work. Once this ordering process goes away, I will consider dining there again.
We had a marvelous time. The food was exceptional! Our server Laura was fantastic! We were having a little difficulty with the digital menu so she was able to convince her manager to take our order the old fashion way. Could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you Boathouse for making our trip to Richmond so memorable!
Holidays with family
The food was great they were fast with bringing food out but didn't like that we had to do it by phone drinks appetizers then the meal came to close behind each other I had like 4 plates on my table for me at one time
Enjoyed totally. Will come back. Why so many characters
The food was very good as usual. There is obvious over-reliance on OpenTable ordering. The servers where very nice when they came by which was very seldom. The prices have gone up, added to the 20% mandatory tip the entire experience was somewhat disappointing and way overpriced.
Food was great. Ordering process is a complete failure and will be demise of this restaurant. There were 5 in our party. There is no waiter. We had to do one order from same phone. Ordering process took 30 minutes since the same phone had to be used by everyone. Customizing an item is difficult if even possible. If wanted additional food had to use same website to order. Payment is made at time of order there was automatic 20 percent added to the order. Why? We didn’t have a waiter. If I go to an upscale restaurant I want a waiter. Your order process is similar to fast food apps. I will not return until they go back to having a waiter.
Food was perfect! Service was outstanding!
Only negative was the ordering with an app on line, had to order each course seperate to make sure all did not come out at one time.
We had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas! The ambiance is amazing and the food was delicious! COVID-19 safety measures were in place. We didn't understand why 20% gratuity was automatically added to the bill as we would have preferred to choose our own gratuity, especially since the food is expensive. Otherwise everything was wonderful!

During our recent visit, I ordered the steak. I had to send it back because it was cooked medium to well. I ordered it med rare. The waiter was very very accommodating and quickly addressed the situation. He offered a cup of soup so I could have something to eat while I waited for my order. The manager (I think it was a manager) apologized. She was extremely professional and gracious about the matter. Despite having to send my steak back, I truly appreciated the service! Oh, I did order a two glasses of wine, cab. That was delicious!
My husband and I have eaten at the Boathouse for several special occasions over the last several years. We really like the Rocketts Landing location and the view of the City. I have been to your Hopewell and Sunday River location. Both beautiful waterside locations!
For us, the menu selection was the biggest drawback. We find the menu limited and it has not changed much. I know you don’t want to hear this, but for next special event which is in January, we will be looking for another restaurant. We want to try out another restaurant that offers a wider range of entree and dessert selections. We plan to return to the Boathouse, but not as frequent as we would would have preferred.
Please let staff know that they are doing a great job during these challenging times. Our best to everyone! Have a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
Service, food, drinks, decor excellent, excellent, excellent. MY husband spent to much time placing orders on his phone and wasn't able to spend enough time with guests. Luckily he knows how to do that on the phone because I don't and neither does my inlaws.
I would recommend the Boathouse, but would have to tell them about placing your own order and the added gratuity.
Came to this restaurant for my anniversary. This place is top notch! A1 everything! Thank you The Boathouse!!
We went to the Rocket landing restaurant for my husband's birthday and we loved the atmosphere there. The service was very good. Food was high quality but they are also pricy. In other restaurants the sidings are usually complimentary but in boathouse you have to order them separately which makes the overall cost high. For us it is a good place for special celebration events but not our everyday place to eat.
A friend & I went to BH after a horrible day. We wanted to treat ourselves because I mean we deserved! We went for food & drinks but thanks to Dylan we got so much more! Dylan is a GEM!!! He wasn’t even our waiter but he was so sweet just checking in, bringing water, offering small convo & you could legit feel his smile even under his mask!
Dylan has been NOT our server on 3 separate occasions & his presence has consistently been sweet & intentional! In a world where kindness seemed to have gone out the window-Dylan is a light BH needs to let shine! So much so that with my upcoming birthday events one stop on my list is to brunch & have Dylan officially be our server! He’s just that awesome! So BH is already a yes but Dylan just stamps the yes!!!
Thanks for a great dining experience! See y’all soon
Celebration brunch with friends
The online ordering is a disappointment, one person ordering for the entire table was completely ridiculous and paying for each course separately to ensure everything didn’t come all at once was a mess.
CONTACTLESS MENU WAITER WAS VERY GOOD WITH ASSISTING US WITH EVERYTHING..
Very pleasant. calming yet upbeat experience. The was absolutely delish and came very quick, The waitstaff was so pleasant, fun and super accommodating as well!! I will be back!!
Beautiful setting and atmosphere. Food was delicious. Ordering, no contact, was different, but there were servers to help in the process.
