The so-called specialty burger is a thing of beauty -- a half pound of charred pink flesh with a bandolier of applewood-smoked bacon, a mantling of aged cheddar, and flavorful sautéed onions. Unfortunately, as with many of the entrees, it comes with potato chips rather than fries. Sure, the service sucks at the Boat Basin Café, but the spectacular views of the City of Boats, the Hudson River, and Jersey high-rises far off in the background, coupled with reasonable prices, make it a worthwhile spot. Keep your eye peeled for special summer soups (we loved the watermelon-and-beet soup), and other vegetarian opportunities, such as the hummus-and-black-olive sandwich on good whole-grain bread.
Very laidback place, basic food but a lot of people (always packed at the end of the day). Lots of people there to grab a drinks with friends after the office. Go for it if you're looking for a low key / laidback atmosphere. And you feel like you're out of NY, looking at the sailing boats...
The BOAT BASIN CAFÉ is operated by the folks behind the defunct O'Neal's Balloon, once the most popular restaurant on the Upper West Side. The view from the porticoed stone porch--which resembles a Roman ruin--looks across the Hudson River to the Jersey Palisades, and the burger is char-grilled, well-dressed, and just the right size.
