“Fabulous food, great value!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Visited prior to flying back to Sydney. Staff very accommodating as we didn't have a lot of time before needing to be at the airport. Luckily, it was lobsterfest! Food was wonderful, fresh and extremely tasty. Wish we had this in Sydney.

“Tough location to get at”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Was not my best meal went for dinner on a rainy night hard location to get into if you miss the turn then you are back over the bridge. Food was just average and the restraint could use an upgrade.

“superb seafood, great service and good value”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Coming off a long flight and wanting a nice relaxing dinner, the staff at the hotel recommended the Boathouse. It was close tot eh hotel and i was more than impressed by the location, quality and attentive staff. The seafood was excellent and not too expensive, the beer was cold and fresh and our waiter was attentive, but not overbearing. I will definitely go back

For a really great meal - this is fabulous but if you are on a budget - not so much. The atmosphere and service was good

“Mixed feelings...”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We visited this restaurant as a part of the Dine-out Vancouver event, when participating restaurants present a preset menu for $18 or $28 or $38, They had two groups - 28 and 38. My husband had the $38 and his choice was lobster bisque for a starter, lobster thermidor over the 7oz sirloin and creme brulee for a desert. My choice was from the $28 group and I had a claim chowder, sirloin plain and a mocha mud pie. Our waitress was very nice, no complains here. The soups were fine, but the portions were on a smaller side. The steaks meat was OK quality but the side was not good at all - they had a mashed potatoes as a side dish and since you obviously can not prepare it fresh to every order and our dinner was at 8-30, it came our stale. Mashed potatoes have to be creamy but instead you could find different pieces of potatoes in it. IMHO it just a lack of the common sense here as if you are planning to serve the same side for the whole evening, you pick the one that is easy to reheat or finish when the main dish is getting ready - you can easy reheat the scalloped potatoes or complete the bake or half baked potatoes, but you can not reheat the mashed potatoes that were cooked few hours ago - well, you can but it won't be good. Probably one of the worst sides I had at the restaurants.
The other problem I had was the choice of the desert offerings. My husband's desert was fine but really boring on a plate and uninspiring. My desert on the other had looked great, the portion was big and the taste was very nice, but I was surprised to find that the mocha mud pie turned out to be an ice cream torte...nothing wrong with it except it is a middle of winter and it was quite chilly outside and not at all that warm inside where we sat by the window. Ice cream for desert would be the best choice in the summer but the last choice in the winter!
Overall impression was somehow puzzling and we are unlikely to return soon.
