The Boatyard Grill is the perfect place to relax, enjoy great views and great American cuisine, with beautiful waterfront views.

We're right next door to a working marina on Inlet Island, just a mile from The Ithaca Commons. And, you can use the Cayuga Waterfront Trail to get here by foot or bike.

The Boatyard Grill is open Tuesday thru Sunday, from 4:00 PM until 9:00 PM.

Enjoy the grill's signature Maker's Mark Sirloin, with bourbon sauce, onion ringlets, roasted potatoes, and a fresh vegetable. Or, for  an excellent seafood dish, order Seafood Fra Diavolo. You'll get jumbo shrimp, calamari, bay scallops, toasted capers, linguine, and spicy arrabiata. 

For a very out-of-the-ordinary dish, we recommend Georgia Peach Grilled Chicken. Comes with sweet potato mash, peach chutney, and a fresh vegetable.


We enjoyed a fabulous dinner. The food, atmosphere, and service was excellent! The grilled peach chicken and filet mignon were amazing. I would definitely recommend visiting this restaurant.
