If you had been to the old Bay Cafe you will marvel at the 1.1 million dollar renovation of this waterfront space into the Boathouse. Pretty much new everything including wood floors, acoustical boards aesthetically placed to absorb noise, landscaping – the place looks great, appealing to a bit older demographic than before. On my visit they were still working on their covered deck and open deck area. Located at the water’s edge at Tindeco Wharf at 2809 Boston Street, this place will be humming with neighborhood residents and boaters docking in the area.

From individual tables near the fireplace, the communal table to seats at the bar there is a little something for everyone. The menu is casual from snacks like the Pimento Cheese, starters Old Bay Loaded Crab Fries, soups Cream of Crab to their Maryland Crab. I had a cup of the Maryland Crab and found it to have a depth of flavor to the broth I don’t normally find and it wasn’t loaded down with peas, lima beans and corn.

There are plenty of salads BUT you can make up your own salad, by your own design with greens of your choice and up to 7 extras for $9.95. Just fill out the form, like you do a sushi check list, and they will customize your salad. There are flatbreads and plenty of burgers; I had the Black and Blue Burger. House sandwiches, sides and entrees for dinner service. You can check out the menu here.

Maureen McEnerney, one of the principals at The BoatHouse – A Waterfront Grille, advised they would not be doing steamed crabs. She advised there will be live music and brunch will start soon, around the beginning of May on Saturdays and Sundays at 10 a.m.

I can’t wait to go back on a beautiful day, sit outside with a nice salad or sandwich and people and harbor watch.
