Tasteful Service!

My partner and I happened to venture to White Rock on a Sunday evening and decided to go upstairs and venture into this restaurant. The view were we sat was fantastic, except a small draft coming from the ceiling that kept me a little chilly throughout the night. We ordered drinks, appetizers and... read more

We went for the $30 dine in Vancouver special & were very disappointed. The soup & dessert is very small & the choices limited. The price is really not a "deal" if you make the portions smaller than normal - would not recommend

We have had lunch at The Boathouse on several occasions. We find their seafood fresh and well prepared. We cannot speak to the evening meals or their brunch. Our meals have always been good.

This was our company Christmas Party. I was a little leery because I though with a name like boathouse that we would be eating fish for Christmas. The restaurant surprised me by having a large variety on the menu. I had steak and lobster, it was very tasty and I enjoyed it immensely. One of the servers even took the... More

Besides having good food, dining on the second floor offers a great view of the the beach. In the summer, the roof dining is also great.

This is a great choice on a sunny afternoon to take in the local flavour of White Rock . However if you looking for great seafood , this is not a good choice . We have found it to be average .

The Boathouse in White Rock has the best view in White Rock. It is a great place for lunch or a romantic dinner. The menu is extensive and the staff will prepare foods to your preferences. The service is always efficient and friendly. Of the Boathouse restaurants I have patronized, this one is definitely a favorite.

I decided to drop by for my wife's Birthday to find that Lobster Fest was on. A quick reservation on Open Table and we were in! The service was very good and attentive. We were quickly greeted and had an opportunity to get some cocktails! The food was very, very good. After enjoying the Lobster Bisque (a favorite of mine)... More
