The Boathouse

Madison’s favorite summer spot for over 70 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 Blue Cheese Burger (our take on the Jucy Lucy) or an all-time favorite like the lobster roll, relax with a Mendota Colada and an appetizer—all with beautiful Lake Mendota as your front yard.

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

Hours open: Monday – Thursday 4:00pm – 11:00pm, Friday – Sunday 11:00am – 11:00pm
