I’m a local in West Berkeley and love feeling like I’m on vacation at the Berkeley Boathouse. The staff, including Rosa and Roger, are seasoned hospitality professionals - warm, welcoming and conscientious. Quality food and cocktails, and a tastefully updated vintage 1970s-style upscale casual ambiance make this a great place to indulge in a cocktail next to the spectacular free-standing fireplace on a cold rainy night, or watch the sunset on the marina from the deck on a mild evening.
Very good food and large portions as well! Service was present and good-hearted, but not obtrusive. Nice water view of course.
A friend and I loved and ate at this restaurant prior to its remodeling. I especially enjoy the indoor fireplace. This was my 1st time eating at the BH in 2 years. It was well worth the wait. I had a fried chicken sandwich and I was not disappointed. My friend ordered a shrimp sandwich which she loved; we both had a boat of wonderful french fries. The food is very delicious and plentiful and the price is right. We were in heaven sitting at the fireplace and were able to hear each other speak despite the other diners who also seemed to be enjoying themselves. Although we didn't order drinks, they have a well stocked bar. Of course, it's on the water and that is a plus. While chatting with a friendly staff member, I asked him for 2 of the Double Tree's Signature chocolate chip cookies. They were warm and delicious just as I remembered. I will be back soon.
Amazing location for a party. Food can be better. It really depends on what you order. Services are smooth. Parking is also available.
I never review places on Google. This place was some of the worst service I've ever seen in my life. You would think that an empty restaurant would at least make an effort to try, but they were all apparently too focused on watching the nearby wedding or snacking behind the bar. I walked out shortly after. Completely unimpressed.
