Very slow service. Waited over an hour for food. Food was pretty good but not worth the confusion and snail's pace of the service. I'm adding one star for the setting. It's a great place to sit outside and have a beer.

We waited until 11 a.m. to have breakfast because we saw that The Boathouse Cafe opens at 11 for their fall hours. When we arrived at 11:30 the doors were chained shut and no one was there. We checked online for their hours again just to be sure we had it right, and we did. We went across to The Boathouse run by the Parks District and they let us know that the people running this cafe often aren't there during their operating hours that are listed online. Very unprofessional. Very disappointing. Will. Not. Be. Back.
