For Over 70 Years

BLT Sandwich

Madison’s Best Lake Front Bar & Grill

Located at lake level in the historic Langdon Building at The Edgewater Hotel, The Boathouse serves authentic Wisconsin favorites like a Chicken BLT on Stella’s Spicy Cheese Bread. Try a Blue Cheese Burger (our take on the Jucy Lucy) or the one pound lobster roll, relax with a Mendota Colada and an appetizer—all with beautiful Lake Mendota as your front yard.
