The Boathouse will feature three bars and nautically-themed dining room. The menu includes steaks, chops, and seafood including Filet Mignon, a 28-ounce Porterhouse, and a 32-ounce long bone rib chop.

The raw bar will serve three to five varieties of oysters on the half shell, a Baja shrimp cocktail, and the Boathouse lobster cocktail. Guests can also order Anastasia Gold caviar that is sourced from a farm in Pierson, Florida.

Other menu items include salads, rotisserie chicken, and more. The dessert menu will feature a S'More Baked Alaska that is made with one and a half gallons of rocky road ice cream which is clearly meant for sharing.
