About The Boathouse

Located in the new Gateway complex at Antrim Lough Shore, The Boathouse brings you proper fish and chips, wood fired pizzas and an array of easy eats!
The Boathouse opened in December 2019 and is located inside the Gateway complex at Antrim Lough shore. Since opening, Chef Michael McGuigan has been serving both quality fish dishes and stunning wood fired pizzas made in a one of a kind authentic Italian pizza oven.

The Boathouse offers stunning views over Lough Neagh within the restaurant, thanks to the solid glass exterior. Sit on our balcony and soak up some of the sun, while indulging in our homemade pastries and tray bakes, made each day by our in house pastry chef and washed down with our array of fresh smooth coffees, made by our trained baristas.

What a hidden gem!!! We will be back and I’ve told lots of people about it already. Great location, fab views, good menu ***** Down side is the limited 90 mins, staff were very busy and we couldn’t order pud as our time was up. Wouldn’t put us off going again though. Oh and the pizza... no words *****

Booked for 1pm very, very slow service for ordering and delivery of food. Food arrived at 1 50pm. Ordered coffee which the waitress forgot about and had to reorder!! Food was very good but service let the restaurant down. Perhaps one senior waitress rather than several young people not organised would be better.

The cocktails were just amazing, my main course of a specially requested calzone was the best I have ever tasted, my friends tacos also tasted fantastic and the staff were super attentive with special thanks to young Josh, he's only new I believe but the young man did a great job.

Delicious food! Friendly staff but appeared a bit disorganised at times and took quite a long time to get served but they were very apologetic for the delay. They just need a bit more organisation and it’ll be great!

Visited last night & availed of the Tuesday deal of main & dessert for £10. I had the battered king prawn soft tacos & my friend had the battered fish. Service was quick & unobtrusive. Food was of excellent quality & presentation was fantastic. Good to see COVID compliance practices in place. Can’t wait to go back !

Second time here, food was amazing and the service was really good too. It was a bit slow the first time we were there so I am really glad we went back and it had improved. There were four of us and the food was all brilliant, especially the fish and chips. They always seem to run out of creme brulee, I will have to get their earlier next time :) Thanks for great food and service!

We had a lovely meal on Sunday. Only thing that spoilt it was our view of the lough was blocked by the partition. If you could change them to transparent plastic it would be perfect. .
