The food was good but very pricey. Our server was excellent. Bathrooms need attending! Probably won't be back next time we stay at the Inn at the Quay.

We went there twice for happy hour. The food was delicious, the beverages well priced, and the service was excellent. When we returned for our second happy hour, there was a special event in the bar, so we couldn't be seated there. They seated us instead at a table in the restaurant where we were treated to the same excellent... More

We had dinner at the Boathouse and because we had no reservation and they were busy, we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant but we were promptly moved to a better table when we complained. The halibut was perfectly cooked and the sauces were excellent. The servers were pleasant but meal delivery was a tad slow. There... More

I just recently read a negative review, but I can not say anything but good about my lunch there with my friend. Our food was good, and the service was excellent.

We stopped here for dinner on the way to Vancouver. The service was great and the location was excellent. Food selections were plenty and they were what we expected from our past experience.

I used to frequent the restaurant with friends also go to the lounge to watch the hockey game and have a couple drinks and appetizers. I haven't been in a while and decided to try it again as everywhere else was packed this evening. The bartender has an attitude and seems to like his position of power, the food has... More

We recently went to the Boathouse in New Westminster. I don't think we will be going back, the menu is limited and the service just isn't great. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server came around and began the conversation by asking us if we had a Landry's Select Club membership which is $25 and he said... More

Having dined here on many occasions I can say that overall it is a good restaurant for celebrating Birthdays, Anniversaries & to Take Friends from out of town. They will generally accommodate a window or patio table if you reserve in advance. Their patio is nice in the summer & happy hour specials are good. The reason for only 3... More

Went their with family during recent trip to New Westminster. Older Restaraunt in need of some renovation. So it was a little dark and dingy despite being on the water. Service was a little slower than average despite not being very busy. However, the food was excellent. Especially, the seafood including the crab cakes, chowder, and fish and chips. A... More
