What to do on a lazy Sunday? An early diner at The Boathouse in Rocky Point, that’s what 😉

I enjoy coming here for the fantastic view, the friendly vibe and the food. What to eat today??

Say what you will but the bread here is awesome and even better because they serve it with the softest garlic butter.  Warm, soft bread and incredibly spreadable butter… Delish!!

My appetizer was the Whisky Crab Soup.  It’s cool, because they bring you the bowl wth the crab and cream drizzled on the bottom and then they pour the soup in tableside.

It’s definitely a heavier soup with heavy flavors.  You get a hint of the whisky, but it’s more of a smoky note than anything.  This soup makes you full!

Nab ordered the Thai Crab Cakes wich are served with a Lemon Aioli and Mango Salsa.  We were pretty impressed that there was more crab than filler and the cakes had a nice texture and good flavor.  Nice choice!

My main?  The Pacific Snow Crab Legs simply steamed and served over a be of rice and mashed potatoes.  Honestly?  When it comes to crab the extras are really just garnish.  Give me my crab and my melted garlic butter and plenty of lemon wedges and I am in heaven!

Really really really really!!  How can you not love love love love this~~~!!  I get really hands on with the crab cracker, the crab fork, and clean out each leg like nobody’s business 😉

Nab got the Maple Cedar Plank Salmon served over rice and seasonal vegetables.  He also added a side of praws as well to fill it out.  Fancy!  As you can see, it’s a plate of deliciousness…with the obligatory obnoxiously large cuts of vegetabels.

How can I say “no” to Creme Brulee?  Well…I guess simple Sunday dinner is turning into a bit of a splurge……but sometimes I deserve it, right?  And there’s no better way to claim that thought than with a silky, subtly sweet creme brulee!!  Yay for Sunday, and thank you, Nab~!
