Boat House

At the Boat House, we proudly celebrate coastal New England’s natural abundance: fresh seafood, local produce and pastoral and nautical charms.

Residing on a bluff over the foot of Mt. Hope Bay, the restaurant beckons guests to relax and soak in our panoramic, award-winning bayside views. Celebrated pastimes include strolls on the pier, sailboat watching and sunset viewing, all complimented with a specialty cocktail and a delicious bite. Join in on nature’s daily entertainment and allow our friendly, genuine staff to cook up and serve your every whim.

Join us for a relaxing and memorable experience at the Boat House. Our locally inspired menu, creative cocktail offerings and unmatched hospitality provide the recipe for a great meal. With dramatic views of Mt. Hope Bay visible from nearly every seat in the house, you’ll easily see why we are a premier destination in Rhode Island. Our large outside patio provides for unmatched al fresco dining. Take advantage of our scenic riverside dock for an after-dinner stroll or pull up your boat for a dock to dine experience.
