Restaurant Review

The Boathouse Restaurant is a popular Wildwood eatery. The main reason you come here is for the waterfront view, drinks, and for reasonably priced food.


This is a casual restaurant with a typical Jersey Shore menu of seafood, sandwiches, meats, and burgers. The food is basic and mediocre.


The place gets very crowded during the summer months with long waits, sometimes 1-2 hours wait.


While waiting for your table, check in at the bar area for a good variety of beers and cocktails.


They are child and family friendly with a kids menu.


The Boathouse Restaurant operates on seasonal hours, with an opening the first weekend in May


There is on-site parking
