Wait staff were friendly and service was quick. The seafood was really fresh and well prepared. Good value seafood restaurant. There didn't seem to be a lot else in the immediate vicinity.

Very good small chain of restaurants - good mix of typical canadian/american food. Very good service. Nice view over the Marina and close to River Rock hotel if you're staying there.

Focus is on food and service. Interior is laid back and not sophisticated or fancy. Had a good wine list. I had the blackened steelhead and it was scrumptious! Will happily return here when back in Vancouver.

The SMALLEST oysters ever !! I think most restaurants would be embarrassed to serve oysters of the size we had. The other food was good; calamari, crab salad & lobster. Service was good and prices were in line with what was provided

The menu had a wide range of choices. The food was excellent. The service was attentive and personal. The atmosphere pleasant and well-kept. The only slightly taking away from this Boathouse vs other locations is the view is not as spectacular...but that's being picky. Our whole family enjoyed this meal.

Went for a girls lunch and had beautiful salads matched only by the beautiful patio views. No traffic noise and it has an uninterrupted view of the Whiterock bay

Delicious food, nice ambience, great service. Drinks were offered quickly and, though we needed time to peruse the menu properly, we were not rushed at all. Our waitress was super from start to finish. Beverage selection is quite extensive. I had the ginger cider to start with and it was excellent, as was my Blackened Spicy Salmon dinner. Very spiced...

My husband and I had some high hopes for a good meal. Our ribs were so tough we could barely eat them. We only ate them because we were very hungry. The corn had been boiled way too long. Definitely won't be back.
