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.

Thee best fish and chips I’ve had for years!! Three of us went for lunch, 3 different meals and all were cooked to perfection! Lovely food, fast, friendly service. Only thing I’m disappointed with, due to lockdown, I now have to wait 6 weeks to go again. Merry Christmas to all the staff 🤞🤞 see you soon x

First time in this venue. It will be my new regular. I like the menu. There are several dishes that I am interested in. On the downside - we were led to our tables and then just left there. No-one came to take out drink order - we had to ask. Then the food came out separately. My husband had to start his and it was a good 5 mins before my plate arrived. In saying that, the waitresses were pleasant. Apart from this, it was great. I will definitely be back.

Great food and beautiful views. Fantastic menu choice and decent portions. The safety measures put in place are brilliant, we felt very safe. Actually kinda preferred our own little private sectioned off table! Didn't impact on our visit or experience at all.

Will not be going back. Service was awful. When we arrived table was not ready, told to take a seat. Four other customers arrived no social distancing took place at entrance. Told to put our face into a screen but no one told us why. Turned out it was to take our temperature. We were gmiven a track and trace form, which i filled in. No one came back to lift it the whole time we were at the table. Order took for drinks, n white wine spritzer and a guiness ordered. After about 10 mins server said they where not sure what way to serve it to me. She thought I wanted a full large bottle of wine. Mains arrived, food could not be faulted We haf planned to have a dessert each but no one came anywhere near us to ask if we wanted one. One more point, when we originally got the menu no one told us that if ordering a main you got your starter free. Nice place but service let it down. Will not be back x
