Our wedding of Feb 2nd 2019
We had our wedding on Feb. 2nd 2019. I couldn't ask for a better venue. The staff at the Boathouse made our day special and stress free. It was enjoyed by all. The food was delicious. I have to give a special "Thank you" to the Boathouse coordinator Amber Dixon, She was professional, gracious and a pleasure to work with. Her personal care meant a lot to us. The Boathouse is lucky to have someone of her caliber. I would highly recommend the Boathouse for a venue for weddings or any other special event.Sent on 02/27/2019

This is a beautiful venue with wonderful people! We had an amazing experience there and would highly recommend it to anyone interested. Amber was our wedding coordinator (you get assigned someone once you book) and she was extremely responsive and organized. She kept the planning on track and made sure everything was to our liking. The staff was so friendly and hard working, especially the day of. The food there is also REALLY good! The BBQ is some of the best I've ever had. My only complaint, is that when originally booking, we were not made fully aware of how many workers we would need for the day of i.e. a dishwasher, someone to setup chairs, etc. Don't get me wrong, it was totally worth the money, just wish we would have had a better idea of the total cost from the beginning. We ended up spending about $6000 at the boathouse and that included the ceremony location & setup, the reception location & setup, all the food, all the staff, golf cart shuttles, and having Amber to help with everything through the whole process! So glad we went with them! You won't regret it!Sent on 07/26/2018

I was in love with The Boathouse before I got to lay my eyes on it, I had watched a video of a previous wedding that happened at The Boathouse and loved the venue! We knew we wanted a beach wedding but I wasn't really looking to have my toes in the sand. My family has been vacationing in Atlantic Beach since before my time, and every year that I can remember we when we were at the beach for a week we would make a trip to Beaufort on night, so it has a special place in my heart, and I thought why not start our lives together there. We seen the Boathouse during the Crystal Coast bridal salon. Secrette was so nice and easy to work with throughout the entire process. We scheduled a tasting about 10 months out and was able to try Chef Kenny's signature dishes (I cannot get over the shrimp and grits they are so tasty! ). As the wedding approached I talked with Secrette more and she helped me finalize the menu. The menu was a hit our guests continue to talk about how good everything was. The Boathouse is a very unique venue, check it out!Sent on 07/03/2016
The BoatHouse at Front Street Village Price Rates
The Boathouse at Front Street Village is one of the most beautiful venues in Carteret County, and that's not all! Equally enhanced by a 5 star staff dedicated to providing fine food and personal service to satisfy the most discriminating guests. As a vendor myself, I look forward to being on site and performing my work in such a positive atmosphere, also realizing the clients we're both serving are very fortunate to have chosen The Boathouse. A class act!
