We had a fantastic dinner at the Boat House Grille in Essex this week. My sister and FOB Paula is visiting and we took a ride in that direction and decided to have dinner at the Boat House. It was outstanding. Alyssa was our server and she was patient with our indecisions over our choices…..there were several tempting options. I had French Onion soup, which is TOPS! It’s the best around…..beefy and flavorful. Maple bacon wrapped scallops accompanied my soup and they were nicely done as well. Jim had a burger and Paula the fish and chips special–also good choices. It was on the early side but diners arrived at a steady pace. The atmosphere is cheerful and relaxing. Consider adding it to your rotation!
