A nice gentle walk along the harbourfront took us to a small, smartish mall called the Harbour Centre. With a few tourist-orientated clothing shops, souvenir outlets, a coffee shop, and a couple of restaurants, it looked like we needed to go no farther that night. We perused the menus of the three or four restaurants on the ground floor and elected for the Boathouse Bar & Grill, tempted by its unfussy atmosphere, lake view, and promise of sticky ribs, which just aren't the same in England.
We were seated and served up with a couple of drinks quickly enough while we pondered our order, which turned out to be two orders of ribs, fries, and garlic bread to start. The food arrived after a comfortably short time via the young and polite servers. The food did its job gamely enough without being spectacular. I could not say it was the best ribs I've tasted, but they were okay and the portion size quite generous.
That said, I'd certainly eat here again on account of the palatable and reasonably priced food, friendly atmosphere, and nice lakeside views. Our bill (the food plus a couple of Pepsis) came to $48, inclusive of taxes.
