The Boathouse

Madison’s favorite summer spot for over 75 years.

Located at lake level in the historic Langdon Building, The Boathouse serves authentic Wisconsin favorites like a Chicken BLT on Stella’s Spicy Cheese Bread. Try our burger stack (a new favorite!) or the one pound lobster roll, relax with a Boathouse Cooler and an appetizer, or enjoy a piece of homemade pie with the family—all with beautiful Lake Mendota as your front yard.

Arrive by boat and tie up on The Pier directly in front of The Boathouse.

Open Tuesday-Sunday: 11am – 11pm
Kitchen Closes at 10pm
