My husband and I ate here because it was advertised in our hotel room guide at the Days Inn. There was also an ad for a free desert on our room key. The drink list was extensive and the cocktail list all had photos which always help me choose a drink. I had the Red Thai Mussels and my husband... More

My wife and I were staying at the Delta Vancouver Airport hotel for one night prior to a flight the next morning to Toronto. The restaurant attached to the hotel is Pier 73 which wasn't to our liking. We were advised to go to The Boathouse by the receptionist. It was a 10 minute walk, 15 at the most if... More

I often stay in Richmond at the Westin Wall Hotel, and as the Boathouse is across the street it is a natural for dinner. Some of my dining experiences have been great, others not so much. A couple of things I want to highlight are that the Boathouse has not changed their vegetable offerings for several years, and it would... More

This restaurant is right across the street from the Westin Wall hotel in Richmond and is located in what is currently a bit of a disaster zone with all the construction. My wife and I walked across the street to the restaurant, which is located on the river, and really liked the bright, but nautical looking interior. Lots of good... More

I have been to the Boathouse many times over the last years and this restaurant is getting a bit tired. The menu is good; there is a good variety of fish, and nearly all shellfish available but lacks much creativity. The seating is squeezed into tight booths like a breakfast restaurant. The service is excellent, both fast and courteous. The... More

After considering our options we decided on the Boathouse - and what a good move ! The Chardonnay was chilled to perfection, the basket of bread was fresh and warm and the entrees were superb, swimming in tantalizing herbs and sauces, with more than adequate portions and beautifully presented. Our server was intelligent, thoughtful and considerate of our show time.... More

This frequent special at the Boathouse is a "Reservations Required" event. It is so polar (and with good reason) that we always reserve a week ahead. If you love seafood it is not to be missed. They have a varied lobster menu all of which are delicious. I don't usually advise this but it is an advantage to get on... More

This is our third time at the Boathouse, and we were happy with our meals and service. My husband had the swordfish and I had the Halibut, both excellent. Enjoyed the atmosphere and being able to see the water, what a perfect setting. Must stop by if you are in the area.

My wife and i took my parents out for dinner here. I had been before but it was many years ago. We shared the coconut shrimp (good) and the crab cakes ( too much filler and overcooked). My mother and i both had sirloin steak and lobster, steak was good, but the lobster was only ok and very small. Wy... More
