Friends from Alberta came to visit and took me out to the Boathouse for dinner. Our server was inattentive and careless; at one point he refilled our water glasses, but a couple of ice cubes spilled onto the table. I was shocked when he just turned and walked away with no apology; he didn't even pick up the spilled ice... More

Recently three of us ate a delicious lunch at The Boathouse in White Rock. Their seafood is always first rate and their fish is always fresh and the best. With the perfect accompaniments to our salmon and rock cod, it was a first class meal. We've also enjoyed their crab cakes in the past too. Their friendly and attentive service... More

You can take kids here they have stuff for them and crayons and coloring, but nice for adults. My grand daughter loved it. I train went by when we were sitting here and she thought that was... More

Sadly it was a rainy night and the view wasn’t as great as it could have been but the food, ambiance and service were all top notch. If you call to make a reservation ask to be close to the window....it gives you the feeling of being right on the waterfront. Seafood salad was delicious and all of the fresh... More

Enjoyable eatery right off the beach in White Rock. Good service, nice atmosphere, good selection of food items and drinks. Mid-price range, as it is a "tourist area". Restaurant gets very busy, but you do not feel rushed or pushed to leave. Pretty laid back place. It's across the street from the pier and visitor's center, so a nice stroll... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the view it is 3 stories so if you get on the top deck you have a fantastic view of the bay! The weather was fantastic the day we went The food was okay bu I would recommend it just for the view!
