Mike Shkreli Executive Chef

Executive Chef Mike Shkreli’s culinary philosophy can be summed up in two words: fresh and local. At the Boat House, that means his inspiration comes from the local farmers and fisherman who deliver to our kitchen daily. Chef Mike’s creations pay homage to the classic fare of a traditional New England restaurant while still imparting his own creative personal style and character. The end result is a menu that showcases the best of each season.

Private Dining

Scenic and light-filled, the Boat House owes its graceful charm to the vast water views that encompass it. Secluded on the banks of the Sakonnet River, spring, summer and fall call for open- air gatherings, while in winter, more intimate occasions are celebrated in the dining room. Our stunning location and courteous staff, together with seasonal menus inspired by fresh, local flavors, promise a private event second to none.
