I have had great food and not so great food at the Boathouse. I seldom choose to go there because of this. On my most recent I was in a large group and the service and food were excellent. The setting right on the Fraser River is lovely.

This particular Boathouse has over the years been up and down. We have found service to often be slow. It is fairly pricey but not consistent in quality and flavour. There are a couple of patios that are lovely in the summer one off the bar and one smaller one attached to restaurant.

Wonderful view and ambience... but.. based on my experience at The Boathouse restaurant in Port Moody.. the food will be overpriced and extremely poor in quality (as well as quantity!!)

Have been the for drinks, dinner, lunch, brunch and it is all average and pricey for what you get. Some people love this restaurant. I like it for its location.

The boathouse is usually our local stop for breakfast on a sunny Sunday morning in the summer. It can tend to be a little more pricey than the competition like angelinas opposite but the quality and service are not comparable. Everything about the boathouse looks and is moderately expensive and is on par with the likes of the keg. If... More

Love going to the very comfortable bar, by the fireplace and getting a window seat to peer out at the old Fraser River. It's a good place to go with a friend for a drink and appies or to splurge for a special dinner on the restaurant side. Nice atmosphere. Decent food and service. Haven't been enough to say more.

We were ask whether we wanted the lounge or restaurant, as it was our first visit, we said please give us your best table! At which point she walked away!

My parents and I were looking for a seafood dinner and decided to go to the New Westminster Boathouse. The meal exceeded our expectations and the service was fantastic. We had a table overlooking the river and enjoyed the whole atmosphere. The clam chowder was so delicious and we all enjoyed it. I had the most flavourful curry chicken and... More
