Visited with family to this location for the first time. Menu seemed to be the same as the other location. Sunday evening at 7:30 and our waitress let us know what mmenu items they were out of. Nice to know, but don't quite understand how a seafood restaurant runs out of mussels? Lots to choose from anyways. King CRAB was... More

Good food but expensive ,we ended up spending twice as much as we usually do for the same quantity. There is no parking. You have to pay for parking ,its not much but its the principle. Its good to try once though.

Restaurant looked unkept/dirty. Prime rib was cut thinly and overcooked with a definate "off" taste. I would have rather had a smaller cut that was thicker than a flat iron steak. It seemed as though this restaurant has young inexperienced chefs as almost everything was done poorly. Veggies were hard and not cooked and the Creme brulle was as thick... More

Haven't been to White Rock in a while. Streets were packed on this sunny family day. Went to the boat house for a super lunch.

What is it with White Rock restaurants? The most go-to, popular website for information and objective reviews is TripAdvisor. Can these businesses not keep their info up to date? Or at the very least, on their own websites? At 9:30 tonight (Friday 1/27/17) after checking TripAdvisor, driving past and seeing people in the windows upstairs, paying $3 to park, hoping... More

Visited with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. We started with the crab dip which half the dish was warmed. I ordered the sablefish and my husband the ahi tuna. Both were served cold and were bland. The best item on the plate was the potatoes. We followed dinner with the mocha pie. There was barely any "Mocha" taste and... More

A recent visit to the Boathouse makes me wonder why I bothered. There was no excuse for the poor quality food and lack of service, as there probably was less that a dozen customers in the whole restaurant. We ordered the Northwest Seafood Pasta which was described as having wild market fish, clams, grilled prawns, mussels, spinach, roasted tomatoes, garlic... More

Had a great time there recently, was able to get in and food was great, very busy in summer but very relaxing and quieter in the winter months. View of Christmas carol ships fantastic.

great view but food just average. They do special like lobster month but it is not cheap and I think they sell their view of the sea more than they spend on making good food. I do go there but I am careful of what I order.

Good food and very good wait staff. We would return again without hesitation. Parking is a bit of a problem but it is that way any place on the beach.
