“disappointing meal”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

it was upin the air where we were going to go for my halibut and chips so my husband decided on some where in White Rock so the boathouse was it so to get right to it my halibut was disgusted and the over cooked so call chips were so greaseyit is a wonder if i did not have a heart attack the batter on the halibut was wet and of course greasey so we ask our server Alexandra if she could take it back and give me a fresh order of chips she said yes and it would take about 3 to 4 minutes so she brought my same halibut back on a much smaller plate with no cold slaw and just the 1 and a half piece of halibut and she had a bandage rapped on her thumb and finger i do not know what the health code is a the boat house but i do not think it is that and it was very over priced not one time did she say that she was sorry we live in coquitlam but i will never go to the boathouse again of course the view was ok but it was very warm inside how do you stay in business with this kind of service as we were leaving this person came over and asked how was everything i did not waste my breath because i know it was a bunch of Bull how about really listeing to so of these comments and clean it up oh p.s.she arrived with my fries oh i mean chips about ''ten minutes later and work on your so calls cooks because they are not Chefs and some of the servers also.

“What's gone wrong?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Just been to the Boathouse for a meal with a friend -last visit was ok and the food was good. Total contrast on this visit - the food was terrible,My beef and ale pie was a piece of cheap shop bought pie, a few overcooked chips and carrots that appeared to be the peelings, topped off with lumpy granule based gravy !!
My friend ordered a pasta dish only to be told they'd run out and it was only 7 pm - she decided that she'd have a starter and desert while I would eat my main course or that was the plan. After I'd had to explain to the serving staff that the clotted cream rice pudding was not a main course meal? my friends king prawn cocktail arrived - loads of lettuce, 5 small prawns and a teaspoon of sauce in a little cocktail glass -she sent the rice pudding back as it had been nuked in the microwave beyond belief and was told that was how it was supposed to look - l don't think so. Guess where we won't be visiting again?

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had Father's Day brunch here and it was disappointing on a number of levels. On the plus side it has one of the nicest views of the beach. Other than that it is pretty underwhelming. The variety on the menu is skimpy - if you are looking for a traditional breakfast it's not offered just benny & omelettes. The service was sketchy - had to ask for coffee refills and the child's breakfast was delivered late. The food itself was not great - the eggs looked like they were sitting under a heat lamp and were dry and disgusting. I could go on but you get the picture. There are much better choices - go there instead!
