Welcome to the Boat House Bistro!

We are glad to welcome you not only into our restaurant but into our family.  We here at the Bistro have been working together, most of us, for over 15 years. We are proud of our three unique dining rooms and bars.  The 1st floor dining room and bar is our winter home for locals and guests from away alike. it's cozy, intimate and talk to your neighbor kind of tavern.  During the summer it’s the coolest place around on a hot day being one of the only air-conditioned dining rooms in town.  The second floor has a bar and newly renovated patio room with unprecedented views of our working harbor.  The third floor is an open-air deck and bar with even wider water views and the thrill of dining outside. The Bistro, as we call it, cuisine is a not to be missed experience for food and drink.

Our Austrian Chef and co-owner Karin Guerin bring our guests her worldly cuisine that will leave you with an I-can’t-wait-to-come-back experience every time. Featuring local Maine seafood, steaks and produce, our farm to table concept has offerings that range from our numerous Tapas to Chef Karin’s renowned Risottos. We have a huge selection of gluten free, Vegan and vegetarian creations. These are not after thoughts as they are on many menus; these items are designed to pack the same wallop as any other dish on our menu. Please join us, drink some wine, share our views and eat our memorable food.  We look forward to greeting you soon!
