Welcome to the Boathouse


Nestled on the shores of beautiful Bowers Harbor the Boathouse takes full advantage of its delightful view of the docks and bay with wide-open windows and a summer deck. Indoors, the charming decor invokes a relaxed cottage atmosphere where both the casually and formally attired feel welcome.


Our talented culinary team pays attention to the entire plate, combining flavor, texture and presentation together so there won’t be a bite you don’t enjoy. Sunday brunch, cocktails by the fireplace, or dinner during our exclusive sunset views make your dining experience a memorable one.


There is an absolutely exquisite view from any area in the restaurant. Every dining experience at the Boathouse is accompanied by gorgeous West Grand Traverse Bay and sunsets that make for an unforgettable evening.
