I enjoyed the large patio space, either indoor heated or outside on the deck. Generous views of the old paddlewheeler and right on the boardwalk! Nice, longtime, experienced servers are the norm here and I have attended numerous retirement and staff parties here. The layered...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.
