    We went on a slow night so it was very quiet and all the service was quick. Food here is excellent, but can cost you so it wouldn't be somewhere I would go other than special occasions or date night. Having said that it looked like they have a decent happy hour special.

    The food was prepared to our taste with the fish grilled exactly right. So fresh & flavourful. Our server, Jenna, kept our coffee cups full then melted out of sight.

    First time dining at this location and everything was great until our main dinner was served . I had ordered steak and lobster my wife steamed mussels the outer plate was so hot but the mussels were rock solid cold and the server said it was because they put cold chives on top "really" so after about 20 mins of waiting and I'm now finished the server says I yelled at the chef I almost said really as I did not see you go any where near the kitchen . Then he comes to say they will be right up still no mussels so ask for the bill and the manager appears and all she says to us is would you like free dessert on us , Give me a break no I'm sorry or anything but asks if we want free dessert . Not what I had expected from such a great place to dine wont be back.

    I have been visiting the various Boathouses for years and even worked for their Head Office and the food and service are just not what they were. It used to be a place we would go for a special night out but now we go because it's convenient and the atmosphere is lovely on winter evenings but we always leave thinking "meh" just not that great. Food is often cold but plates hot like they've been sitting under the heat lamps too long and never seems to live up to the description on the menu. Our service on Friday was ok but food took a long time coming out and oyster order was mixed up and sent back. We used to visit several times a year and now go maybe once. Hope you can recapture what it once was.

    Service was basic.. Even though our server did what he was suppose to, like bring water, drinks and food, he did not go a step beyond. We were seated for more than 5 minutes before our server came. Another 5 before drinks came. We were never asked if we wanted an appetizer, coffee, tea, or desert. After dinner a piece birthday ice cream with 3 forks was dropped off for my moms birthday followed by the bill. The rest of us would have liked to order our own desert!!!!!!!!!! The hostess told us someone would come talk to me about he points card. No one ever did. Adequate service not great.

    A good restaurant for entertaining. Food an service have been good(on average) and it's a good place for dinner or drinks. But, the main dining area is quite large and can be loud at time if the restaurant is full.

    Three of us went out for my fathers' birthday dinner on a Saturday night, on-line reservation was very simple and was able to get a spot within 15 mins. of the time I had wanted. We arrived a bit early and were seated right away. 2 of us had the steak & lobster dinner which was excellent, one of us had the coconut cod on quinoa which was very tasty although a bit overdone. Overall experience was wonderful, the slice of mocha ice cream cake they brought my Dad at the end was a very nice touch. We would definitely recommend the Boathouse in Port Moody.

    The meal was DELICIOUS!!!! I was a little disappointed with the lobster tail I received when I ordered grilled lobster tails as it was a tail split in half then put on a stick, definitely wasn't a full tail, yet still very tasty! My potatos weren't very warm yet the oysters were great!

  • Lobster Fest Menu
    loveofdiningVIP
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    Had a ladies night on Saturday night, and all of us had the lobster fest menu. For the price that we paid for a 3 course dinner, the value was just not there. I had the most expensive dish on the menu being the Seafood Grill (Lobster fest menu) and it was the driest most bland plate of food, I could have made better at home. At $43 base plus an additional $10 to make add a soup & desert, I will never order it again. The lobster part of the plate only consisted of about 2 tablespoons of lobster itself. Find something else on the menu to have, the Lobster Fest Menu is just a money grab!

    I have frequented the boathouse in white rock and always been pleased. I have been to the port moody location previously but just for drinks. We decided to book reservations for dinner for our family as it was our anniversary. The kids meals, for the price charged, were the smallest portions ihave ever seen. Even the kids made comments of this. The service was slow and not once did the waitress ask how everything was. Then we were brought out at the end a cake to share as it was our anniversary which was a nice surprise. In going over the bill however we were charged for this nice surprise. I noticed, advised the waitress and it was taken off. All round not thrilled with out experience at this location.

    We always enjoy the Boathouse and go there often. The evening was a romantic night out for my wife and I. The food is great and we always have a good experience. But this time, the service was slow, the wait staff did a great job, but the kitchen took a long time to get our entrees out, over 30 minutes from when we were finished with the appetizers. My wife's swordfish was cold as were my mashed potatoes when they were served. Then the after dinner coffees took another 20 and the excuse was the coffee machine was backed up.

    Out of all the Boathouse locations, The Boathouse Port Moody is definitely my favorite. The food is above average, but not exceptional. However, the ambiance and service make up for it in my opinion. This is a great place to celebrate special occasions.

    Our server was not very good - her attention seemed to be some place else ... we asked for several items and never received them ...noise level was almost unbareable for the 1st hour of the evening .... this restaurant really needs to find a way soften the noise ... but then again it has been this way since it was opened. We asked the server to substitute one item from a platter to share, but it was denied ... we have been coming to the restaurant since it opened and never have we been refused a substituation ... not sure what has changed

    It was my wife and my 27th wedding anniversary. We have been to the Port Moody Boathouse before and it is always memorable. From the moment we were greeted at the front door, the 1st class experience started. We were warmly greeted and take to our table. What a great view!! The service and the food were fantastic. My wife and I said to ourselves that we have to start coming here more often. I highly recommend the lobster!!

    I've dined here 5 or 6 times in the last couple of years and each time I'm reminded why I don't eat there more often. It's boring. There isn't one thing about the atmosphere, service or food that makes me eager to return and after my recent visit ( $$$ anniversary dinner with a dull waitress and a seafood dinner I could have made better at home ) I definitely don't plan to return.

    We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly and courteous. The service was excellent, thanks to Luigi. He was very informative, attentive and engaging. We are not big eaters and we don't drink but the food was great and enjoyed it. We were also treated with a delicious complimentary ice cream pie for our anniversary. We were seated by the window overlooking the inlet and that was amazing. We definitely recommend it and we will be back. Well done.

    I had made reservations well in advance and specified a window seat. As it was a special event. When we arrived the lady at the front desk said there were no window seats left. I was really disappointed. A window seat become available shortly after we sat down, and no effort was made to accommodate us. Also 2orders of crusted halibut was ordered at our table and the batter was burnt which left a burnt taste. Thanks for asking. We have frequent your restaurant many times and was always pleased. Very dissapointed for this occassion. Regards. Charlene Hooey
