We went for dinner, very pleased with some oysters to start. We had some chilled prawns as a share plate.For my main course I had the fish tacos which I liked. Sorry no room for dessert.

We had the BBQ platter, calamari and BBQ ribs. All were absolutely delicious. Good quality ingredients prepared perfectly. The ribs were meaty, tenderlicious and gently saucy. Erica, our wait person, was fun, informative, and charming. A great time, with tasty food and a fun environment and people. Thanks, Boathouse of Richmond!

The new Boathouse menu is much more exciting. We both opted for the seafood chowder followed by the sable fish. We found the seafood chowder somewhat bland but the Alaska black cod was very fresh and tasty.

From service to setting. Fish to fries It's all good. Lover their Caesar's. Any of their locations is a sure thing but their locations in Vancouver are awesome!

Still go there but do not find it up to the standard of others in the change.Location is out of the way but fairly close to the airport. I find both service and food inconsistent.

Had a great dinner here with my family. I had the crab stuffed Prawns which were amazing! Service here is awesome right from the person that opens the door for you when you arrive to the person that opens the door when you leave. Great atmosphere!

A surprise. Do not expect much out of chain restaurant food especially if it is oriental food. I had a seafood with green curry on rice. It is very tasty out of my expectation. That is recommended if you have a crave for Thai food on the day.
