The last day of the legendary Campbell's Boat House is this Saturday (2/25/17)


UPDATE Wed 2/22/17 8:30am EST: I've been told the Boat House will close on SATURDAY 2/25/17.  These things are hard to predict.  When the liqour/food runs out, that's usually it.  Get there early.


You might want to re-arrange your plans this weekend if you were a fan of the Campbell's Boat House.  We've received word from few sources close to the matter that "The Boat" will close for good this Sunday 2/26/17.

A special thanks to the Campbell family for the wonderful times and the tremendous impact the restaurant has had on all of us.   A "Family Restaurant" like this is what makes the fabric of the community, but unfortunately, we're losing them quickly.  The memories will not be soon forgotten.

    1. Well that's disappointing. Sold out to the big corporation huh. I remember working there for the Messicks. Good people! There will never be another boat house.

  2. I spent several hours with Bob on Monday reminiscing about the Boat. My sister, Jean has been the cook there for 50 years. I never worked there, but I spent a lot of time there. got to know bob and his family very well. So sad to see it go, but everything changes over time.

  8. My mom and her friend used to go there for drinks and their chili. She said it was one of the best around. Sorry to hear that it will be closing. My husband and I were going to stop by but will not be available this weekend. Best of luck in retirement to the Campbell Family.
