The restaurant is located on the Bay of Quinte, on the northern shore of Lake Ontario. The spacious terrasse overlooks Victoria Park Harbour, where many people dock their boats, including sailboats and yachts. The ambiance is very nautical chic — just like you'd expect to find in a trendy port city.
To top it all off, Boathouse serves amazing seafood. According to its website, it was voted "Best Seafood Restaurant in Ontario" by the Ontario Food Awards in 2019, and it's won the Belleville Readers' Choice Award for favourite seafood restaurant 16 years running.
The menu includes seafood chowder, battered halibut, a lobster and king crab combo, fish tacos — and basically anything delicious that a seafood lover could dream of.
Boathouse has daily food and drink specials and live music every Saturday night. It's open all year round, but if you go on your birthday, you'll get a free entree valued up to $15. Make sure you sign up in advance to take advantage of the free birthday program.

Buckle up, because we could be in for a "yo-yo type of winter with notable polar coaster swings in temperatures" throughout Canada.
The entirety of Canada is warned to get some extra wool layers to prepare for this coming winter since overall, temperatures during this time have a high chance of being colder than normal. Luckily, January is likely to be warmer than normal in Eastern Canada, although February may be a bit colder.
Quebec can expect a "typical winter chill" with various precipitation storms in January and a "tranquil" February.
And if the Farmer's Almanac is right, don't expect it to start feeling like spring in March — days with spring-like weather are expected to "be few and far between."
Café Myriade says that the woman who was filmed ripping flowers out from its terrasse has apologized for her actions.
In an Instagram post, Myriade said the woman visited the café to personally apologize and asked for the video to be taken down. The café obliged her request and even gave her a succulent plant to take home.
The video, which was removed from Instagram, shows the woman approach a row of flowers in front of Café Myriade's ave. du Mont-Royal location at around 3:45 a.m. on Monday morning. She proceeds to pull them out, toss them on the sidewalk and walk away.
In a statement shared with MTL Blog, the café had a good sense of humour about the situation and didn't want to make trouble for her by filing a police report.
The café said it was "content she found the courage" to apologize.
"I do believe we can bring the matter to a close and sincerely end it on a good note."
A sit-in protest will be taking place Wednesday, August 4, calling for justice for Jean René Junior Olivier, a Black man killed by police in Quebec on August 1, 2021.
It will take place in Repentigny, where officers shot Olivier after responding to a 911 call. His mother, Marie-Mireille Bence, said her son was in distress and in need of help. Quebec's Bureau des Enquêtes indépendantes (BEI) has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Olivier's death.
Bence spoke out against police action in a press conference, explaining she had called the police because she believed her son was "in danger." She then went on to express her loss of faith in the police, referring to them as "criminals."
"I called for help and I found my son on the ground," she said.
Information about the upcoming sit-in demanding justice for Olivier was shared on the @defundthespvm Instagram account, with the caption: "Justice for Jean René Junior, a Black man who was killed by police this weekend while he was in need of mental health support. We are absolutely devastated for his family and friends. Lakay Media has organized a sit-in outside city hall in Repentigny to demand justice for Jean-René and am victims of racial profiling."
"Enough is enough."
The sit-in protest is scheduled for 6 p.m.
