Wonderful location and ambience. Great views. Terrific wines. Super seafood menu. Food delicious. Service was fine. A bit pricey.

This restaurant is part of the Landry Chain and lives up to it's reputation. The food and service are awesome. Being a card member, we received a visit from the manager, front of the row seating past all the reservations, and the full attention of our waitress. It was Lobster Week and we had the Mixed Lobster Grill. This was... More

We live in South Surrey, so going to the Boathouse on a sunny afternoon and sitting on their rooftop patio is always a great experience. The food is always average but for some reason just being outside in the sun always makes it taste a bit better. This last visit was disappointing. Obviously, it’s October, so no rooftop patio. I...

We "treat" ourselves occasionally at the Boathouse and like to take out of town guests as well. Never been disappointed.

The Boathouse is a perennial go-to place in White Rock. The food is pretty consistently good and the view is great at any time but especially on a sunny afternoon or evening, so it's good place to take visitors if they like seafood. The wine list is pretty good and fairly reasonable by Vancouver standards. and if you plan on... More

Sorry white rock boathouse, I've given you three chances . Smallest over cooked bland presentation food ever . You used to be good but you need a new kitchen manager . I won't be back . Service was nice but didn't make up for the food . Truly wished I had taken a pic of the calamari. The opah !... More

We have eaten at the Boathouse restaurants in Port Moody, New Westminster and Horseshoe Bay. We have always been pleased but not this time. They were having their Lobster Fest so I ordered Lobster Ravioli Bouillabaisse. Now when the first ingredient listed on the menu is lobster, I expected some pieces of lobster meat. Wrong. It was made with lobster... More

Food right up there with Boathouse excellent standards. Mostly seafood but an ample selection for non-seafood lovers. We ate on the top deck in 30 (86F) degree weather. The Deck Crew (staff) were excellent. There is ample shade under large sunshades and for inclement weather there is ample room on other floors. We went twice in two weeks we were... More

We stopped in for lunch on a fall Saturday without reservations and had no problem getting a table. Our server was very friendly and the seating by the window provided a great view over the bay. The menu had a nice choice of lunch and even breakfast/brunch items to chose from. The prices were reasonable yet leaning toward the high... More
