This casual restaurant, bar, and boat rental facility, located in the heart of Forest Park on Post-Dispatch Lake, is like no other place in St. Louis. In 2012, the Ladue News named the Boathouse the “Best Spot for a First Date.”
In the cold weather enjoy indoor dining for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch...or just come and enjoy a glass of wine or a hot chocolate while relaxing around the large stone wood-burning fireplace. Sunday brunch is served 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
In the warm weather enjoy leisurely boat rides, lakeside patio dining, cold drinks, live music, and beautiful sunsets.
