    Go for the drinks and scenery.

    Forget the food. You ain't there for the food. You're there for the drinks, the "Happy hour" and the "eye-candy". Yeah, yeah...I know...I'm a chauvinist pig, but a pig who knows his foxes and this place has some of the best pickings in the city, especiall

    Read this please!

    Wow the Boat Basin Cafe...good times good times. I love this place its so underground with so much more potential. The staff is the greatest from the attentive busboys to the incredible waiters. Bartenders are nice and drinks are a great deal with the ama

    Just great!

    I took a few folks from work here for lunch, and we had a great time. The waitress was lovely--fun and competent-- and the food was excellent--burgers, salads, etc. Great views and breezes from the river... Just right, all the way around.

    Doggies Part Deux

    I love the fact that dogs are allowed at the boat basin. People are more unsanitary to be near other people, than dogs, from the species barrier you can't catch anything from a dog, don't listen to whining reviewers who are clearly not dog lovers. This p

    nice change

    This is a pleasant change. I have been coming here for many years just to enjoy the atmosphere, and yes the food and service have always been below par, but I had a nice surprise yesterday. I stop in with a friend on a whim. We were seated right away
