Whether you are here for a fun-filled family vacation, a romantic couples getaway, or even just a solo adventure, the Dells welcomes everyone. After you wander the attractions, slide the slides, ride the rides, and shop til you drop, some peace and relaxation might be calling your name. Let The Boathouse (located inside the VUE hotel) be your quiet respite away from the hustle and bustle of the chaotic downtown Dells. Located just a few short blocks from Downtown Dells perched above the Wisconsin River, The Boathouse offers a privately picturesque riverscape and modern dining experience. 

Inside this chic, modern, restaurant you’ll be treated to luxurious riverside views and elegant meals. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’ll have the opportunity to dine in style as you gaze over the tranquil flowing waters from sunrise to sunset. At breakfast, wrap your hands around your favorite Starbucks beverage while you enjoy a savory dish of eggs benedict and hash browns. The lunch menu offers a range of appetizers, sandwiches, and fresh salads. It’s hard to go wrong with a crisp House Salad packed with arcadian greens and generously topped with ripe cherry tomatoes, tangy red onions, and crunchy cucumbers. As an added bonus, famished Wisconsin River goers have the option to dock their boat at the private dock and head straight to the patio for a few hours to grab a drink, a bite to eat, or the perfect combination of both!

Sunsets at the Boathouse are a beautiful affair. Delight your eyes with the view of a painted sunset as you savor the bold flavors of upscale American classics like Shrimp Cocktails, 8oz. Sirloins, and Fettuccine Alfredo. For the seafood lover, the Pan Seared Walleye dressed in cucumber dill aioli and paired with a side of creamy sweet pea risotto and tender broccolini is a can’t-miss tasting experience. 

To most, the perfect ending to any dining experience is winding down with a glass of your favorite wine or spirit in hand. Move your drinks and conversation outside as you rest in the warm summer sun and cool river breeze on the spacious and stunning patio! With an impressive 1200 square feet of additional outdoor space, ample seating for up to 80 guests, and an outdoor patio lounge with fire pits, The Boathouse is the perfect place to host weddings, parties, or relax while listening to live music. This newest upgrade will allow patrons to experience all the grandeur and beauty of the Dells just the way nature intended – up close and personal! No matter what time of day, The Boathouse offers classic Wisconsin Dells views of sandstone cliffs, and the gently flowing Wisconsin River.
