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 peel and eat shrimp or the one pound lobster roll, relax with a Boathouse Cooler and an appetizer, or enjoy an ice cream floatie 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

SPECIAL HOURS: JUNE 22, The Boathouse will be CLOSED for a private event 11am-6pm. Join us for dinner 6-11pm.
