We have included this eatery as one of many delicious dinner options around the city of Chattanooga. The Boathouse Rotisserie and Raw Bar was chosen to be included in particular simple because of its long-standing Chattanooga tradition for neighborhood camaraderie, as well as long standing choice dining destination in the area. This gorgeous, both decor-wise and scenery-wise, riverfront dining establishment is actually located right on the Tennessee River, in the heart of the Chattanooga Riverwalk just one and a half miles from downtown. Though Boathouse Rotisserie isn’t exactly a seafood exclusive eatery, it is, in fact, one of the busiest and most successful oyster bars in the country.
While at Boathouse your group can choose to either dine in the main dining room, eat outside on the covered patio and get the full effect of a seafood meal riverside, or call ahead and grab the 46+ person party room with patio space. Enjoy the eclectic menu here with many traditional dishes, plus a wide array of items from both the wood fired grill and the creative house specialties board, full of dishes unique to Tennessee. Enjoy fresh juice cocktails or local beers and wines if you are of age, or perhaps just enjoy the intoxicating view of the riverfront from the patio if you aren’t. It will be quite easy to see why Cityscape voted this place the "best seafood," "best place to take out of towners," "best appetizers," and "most knowledgable staff" in 2014. Be sure to get a taste of what makes this place so special before you go, the Boathouse oysters unique in local river nutrients, salinity, and temperature of waters, each of these aspects playing a large role in the winning flavor, another reason why this top U.S. oyster joint serves over 157,000 oysters annually!
