Austin >Boat House Grill
Great fried catfish.. Good, if you want a salad, go someplace else.
Should have gone to Sonic, it would have been better. We had a kid's day last Saturday and took our son to the movies and wanted to take him to eat lunch where he could run around and play. I had read about the events here at Mr. Johnny's Weekend Events so I was excited to try it out. I made a mistake. We will never go back. The burgers are store, not home-made, french fries, store bought as well. Prices are expensive for what you get. We weren't impressed at all. Could have saved quite a bit of money by going to a local fast food place and not driving all the way out to 620. To top it off, the bathrooms were nasty and we went to another store just to use their restrooms. I wouldn't recommend to anybody.
Good fried food in a simple atmosphere.
We go to the boathouse about once a month for burgers and steak fries. Simple fried food that are just good. Sure this isn't a 5 star restaurant but for what it is, it isgreat.
Burgers, catfish and chicke fried chicken ar every good.
My brother in law loves it for the "cougars", especially when they have a live band.
Expect kids and a rocky floor on the patio.
Great comfort food. This is a great place. We really like the grilled chicken sandwich and the catfish basket. The service is good, and they keep things lively.
THAT TRAiLER IS GROSS, so is the bathroom.
we went to the boathouse last night for the first time. I was surprised when I walked up to see that they are cooking from a dirty greasy trailer that has about 6 people in it.
The food was okay....but is it appropriate to cook in a trailer with that may people?
My partner said the burger was great , but I lost my appetite for the catfish with ALL THAT GREASE!!
Not good for small kids. The food is average and the service friendly - very casual atmosphere. I'm not going back there with my kids until my 3 yr old is old enough to not run out into their back parking lot. There is an indoor eating area, where you order the food, and a covered/outdoor eating area that is graveled. It gives the impression that the kids can walk around and kind of play, but the back part of this area is fenced in and has a gate that is always left open. This gate opens to the back parking lot. I went there a few times with my kids and my son, at the time 2yrs old, kept trying to run out to the parking lot! He's pretty fast and I had to keep my eyes on him constantly. Couldn't keep him in his highchair because he fussed quite a bit, seeing the other kids walking around and socializing. Not exactly a relaxing experience for parents of small kids. Talked to the manager in charge and she didn't seem to care. She didn't think the kids should be up and about, despite the fact that the atmosphere of the place is family oriented (picnic tables and gravel) and the kids do run around and play. Good, casual place for families with babies and older kids, not for toddlers.
Great burger and catfish joint. Great neighborhood place for burgers, including "hippie" (veggie) burgers and also for catfish. Very friendly and accommodating service and a fun atmosphere. Sometimes there's even live music. Don't forget to get a classic Boat House Grill t-shirt!
Fast and Friendly. We went to the Boathouse for lunch this week for the first time and it was great. We got there about 11:30am and found a booth inside after ordering. Bacon cheeseburger was good and the counter staff were very friendly. The lunch crowd was in full force by 12pm and seating and service would have been a little slower. Excellent Overall.
Great Quick Stop for Comfort Food. If you're in the mood for a super casual, quick dining meal, you should give this place a try, especially if you live close by or are in the Lake Travis area. The fried mushrooms, chicken strips, and catfish sandwich are the best items on the menu (take it from the pro). Every now and then we've been disappointed with the service, but overall it's pretty consistent. Kids love this place.
