It was our 1st night in Vancouver and the hotel recommended the Boathouse for great seafood. We weren't disappointed. Ordered off the Happy Hour Menu for the appetizers and drinks---oysters and yam fries were a hit. Sockeye and Mable Salmon were yummy and the CAB Sirloin was grilled perfectly medium. Our server suggested these items as some of their best----we... More

A group of us went for dinner, and most of us had the 'meal' option that includes soup or salad, main and dessert. The chowder looked like it had nice big chunks, but they were chunky potatoes and big croutons, with a few small pieces of fish. The broth was watery. Then the mains - I had miso-glazed halibut, which... More

We had dinner here last night, it was very busy so we waited and waited for over an hour for our food. By the time we got our food we were starving. The mixed grill for $35.00 was less than inspiring and a puny portion but that's not the worst part. We all had salmon which was extremely dry and... More

We had been walking around in the rain on a chilly afternoon. We walked in and I jokingly said, "We would like a table by the fireplace." Within minutes, we were seated by a fireplace with drinks in hand. The food was fantastic and the service could not have been better. We recommend the maple salmon on the cedar plank... More

We absolutely wanted a "The Boathouse" restaurant but they had limited reservations available for our time constraints. So we settled for this one in Richmond. We were a good group (4 adults + 2 children). Upon arrival the waitress was quick to attend to us and look after us, setting the children up and taking our coats. Food was ordered... More

Visiting the area from Florida. I have been to this restaurant many years ago. I haven't been to BC since then. I wanted fresh halibut and decided on the Boathouse. I ordered their Whiskey Crab bisque as an appetizer and the miso crusted halibut served over a pepper demi-glacé. The bisque was recommended by my server over the crab claw... More

Close to where we were staying, met friends there as original plans fell through, service was not that good waitress was pleasant when we were able to get her attention, food was very over priced for the quality only one person of 6 actually cleared the plate

We went to this "chain" because we had been there a couple of years ago and the food was good. Also it is directly across from the Westin hotel in which we were staying, Food was less than average in every respect. Overpriced and disappointing is all I can say. Our server Stephanie was pleasant.
