Good food for the happy hour price but it is limited on choices. If they added more appies onto the happy hour list it would be a lot better. Don't get me wrong, the food is good just limited on the appie list for happy...More

Because I feel the New Westminster Boathouse has always been inconsistent I cannot indorse going there. The Keg was just as bad. Now that New west has great restaurants like Wild Rice and The HUB, goodbye Boathouse.
