Default Back Bay Boathouse

Saw this restaurant mentioned in another thread. I was there for dinner on Monday in a party of 10. An overall good experience. We ordered a variety of meals and appetizers. No complaints heard. The staff was pleasant, friendly, and competent. I had the half-rack of ribs w/fries. The french fries passed the crucial tests of crispness, not overly salted, and hot. The ribs were excellently cooked and the meat did "fall off the bones", just the way should be. I did not particularly care for their barbecue sauce. --It wasn't bad and I enjoyed the meal, but I probably wouldn't order the ribs again if the sauce was the same. The meals ordered by those within conversing distance were all well received. This is certainly a restaurant to put on my "I'll be back" list.

We’ve been so many times at their new location-they were at the Golf Course and called Full Belli Bar & Grill. AMAZING food!

The new deck on the Back Bay opened in the last month...it came out great. I've likely been to the restaurant 10x this year.

I'm a fan of the place, obviously.

Are the docks completed? We're taking a friend out on her maiden jetski voyage later in the week, and this place would be the perfect stop!

They told me today that the dock would be started next week. Currently it's still the one with 2" of duck poop on it :-)

This place was getting killed today—we sent back a plate and the table next to us sent back two. Wait was horrible, and the food was meh.

We had a couple great experiences here, but we're hearing—and experiencing—something much different lately.

They were Good on Friday. Must be short staffed.

Short staffed or more demand they could handle? Can't really tell from think's post.

There were plenty of servers—ours was spotted chatting with the hostess as we waited with empty drinks—but the kitchen certainly may have been.

It wasn't very busy, though, so if they're that short-staffed, things were only going to get worse as the day moved on.

I wondered because we had a rather reasonable Saturday.
Usually, it is overflowing with weekenders trying to get in just before we close.

But I know a combination of the fair, Parade of Homes, and leaf peeping was keeping them busy.

I thought maybe the other side of the lake was taking the brunt.

We? Which restaurant are you associated with and what is your role where?

Building Supplies.
We had a rather slow Saturday, even though it is a three day weekend; and I felt it may have been due to all the other activities occurring.

Leaf Peepers tend to use the Kanc, fair goers tend to get there early, and the POH people are this year more situated toward that side of the corridor than this side.
