The Boathouse is a long-standing Chattanooga tradition for neighborhood camaraderie and a choice destination for the best of riverfront dining, located directly on the Tennessee River in the heart of Chattanooga's stylish Riverwalk. Just 1.5 miles from the downtown hotel district, the Boathouse features an eclectic menu with many traditional dishes, along with a wide array of items from the wood fired grill and creative house specialties not often found elsewhere. Although we are not known exclusively as a seafood restaurant, the Boathouse does have one of the busiest oyster bars in the country. Choose from one of our fresh juice cocktails, or a selection from our beer and wine list, and enjoy the city's most spectacular view of the Tennessee River vista, whether from inside our dining room, or while relaxing on our outdoor covered patio.
At the Boathouse, we are dedicated to preparing and delivering the highest quality and consistency possible to each and every guest.
Buy a great product. Try not to screw it up. Hire great people and treat them the best you can so they don't leave. You can't have employee turnover and have a good restaurant. It's impossible.Lawton Haygood
The Boathouse has received numerous awards and honors, which we hope will be readily apparent in both our friendly staff and the exceptional products we serve.
