Second time I've been in here and I still expected a dive bar. Had a little makeover and it definitely improved the atmosphere! Nice selection of Short's and other beers on tap. Lots of tv's for the sports aficionados! A friends local hangout so will definitely be back. Worth a visit if you're in the area!

Boatworks has been my bar of choice since I've been old enough to drink. Their tastes for craft beer have grown alongside my own over the years. This is not a "We have the most taps in the tri-state area" type of establishment. They have a dozen or so taps of constantly rotating selections with a focus on Michigan breweries. The owners pride themselves on providing quality beers and great food and it really shows.

Boat Works is the kind of place that will make anybody happy. (I only had the nachos, but) Good food, craft beer, typical adjunct lagers, and over a dozen TVs in a pretty tiny bar. First, the beer... as I said, nice selection. There are probably a dozen taps, and the majority of them (all but two or three) are dedicated to "fancy beer". Our waitress seemed to either be working alone or alongside one other person when the place was full, and she did a pretty good job. I see some negative reviews for this place on here, but I got what I expected. If you want a reasonably priced craft beer (About $5.25 for a 16oz pour, which isn't that great of a deal, or $6 for a 24oz one), this is one of the better places in the area. If you want some not-so-authentic but tasty nachos, Boat Works is a good option. I didn't eat anything else, but I'd gladly come back for some more. Boat Works -- recommended.
