As usual the food is the best. The view of the ocean is one of a kind and the staff are friendly and make sure your needs are met.

My husband took me there for my birthday dinner and my to small children loved their dinner and ice cream.. and I loved my dinner, :D I had steak and lobster. The steak was a little more rare than I normally like but it still tasted delicious. THe lobster was the highlight. Delish. Our server was fantastic. Not sure if he remembered us but he sure made us feel like he did. This is our restaurant of choice for all special occasions.

Great place to dine
Coming to boathouse, we always get great service. All the servers and hosts are very polite. We came here to celebrate someone's birthday and they gave us a complementary dessert. Although they did get some of our orders wrong (a wrong cocktail, and also we ordered a rare steak, which came medium to medium well-done). However, the service was top notch, the server was always catering to our needs asap and was very attentive. Food quality wise, it was alright. We had better food from there in the past, seems like quality drops everytime we go, but we had high expectations for their New York Strip which was beyond amazing the first time we tried it. But I would still come here on special occasions.

The food is healthy and delicious.
The food is healthy and delicious. It's good that they have a casual section on the menu with main courses for less than $20. There was a group function behind us that was quite noisy but other than that, all was fine.

Impress your Visitors
A unique spot with great vibrant ocean view, it exemplifies the best of BC so is wonderful for invitations for out of town visitors. The menu is fresh, changes often, has lots of choice and is only moderately expensive.

View of the pier and the water was superb. Staff was very attentive, helpful with gluten issues, food was tasty. Fish was wild, not farmed. Great experience.

Great Anniversary Experience
Becoming irregular regulars here. We have other favorites in White Rock, and so far the Boathouse doesn't disappoint. Brand new waiter, did a great job! Timing, attentiveness, personality, familiarity with the menu - a great example for others just starting out in hospitality. Tried new things on the menu, and each was worthy of a repeat in the future. Crab topped tomato and bocconcini crostini drizzled with basil oil and balsamic - nice flavor mix - enough balsamic to complement, but not overpower, the crab. Shrimp trilogy and sirloin with key lime shrimp for entres - again, flavors, presentation and food done just as ordered.

overall really good
We sat on the patio and it was really nice. Great view. Our server was Sophia and she was attentive, very knowledgeable of menu questions that we had and very friendly. Food was served in a very reasonable time and tasted good. My friend and I have been to the Boathouse in New West several times and it was always a good experience. Although I live in White Rock it was my first time at this location and all was good. Will come back again.

We have been to the Boathouse many times and always have great service and meals. Great place to take out of town guests to see the ocean.

Beautiful day, amazing view!
A sunny day but we chose indoor dining & were glad we did. The dining room was lovely with a wonderful view. Crispin, our server, was attentive & friendly. Food was good! A nice evening out :)

Good food and good service, we would definitely go back again. The menu selections were excellent, something for everyone.

Good and Bad
First time back to the Boathouse in over a year was Good & Bad. The Good is the beautiful sunny weather, sitting on the rooftop with an ocean view. Great ambiance, the hostesses were very friendly and helpful. The food was good, but the bad was the pricey halibut & chips order. At $22.99 for a lunch time order, the portion of halibut was skimpy. Then, the wine we ordered, they were out, a substitute was offered and we asked if it was the same price. We were told it was, but when we got the bill, it was $8 a bottle more. The server denied knowing we asked her at the beginning. Didn't bother making a fuss, I get it, that these are young girls, probably, working part time. But, she should have sent a manager over, as good customer service.

We had a wonderful dining experience for my husband's 70th birthday with frriends.. Our only disapoinment we being put in a booth which was confining and not a window table with a good view. I had asked for that but did not get it.
However the food was great and the service outstanding. We had a good time.

Great steelhead, plus the novel salad with watermelon was a nice surprise. Perhaps more wines by the glass.

My husband and I always go to the boathouse for any special occasion. It is my favourite restaurant. This time we decided to try out appies instead of the traditional steak and crab that I love so much. I had the crab cakes and the ahi tuna tacos. They were both delicious. It doesn't matter what I have at the Boathouse, it all tastes fantastic. Thank you so much for continuing to impress me with the wonderful flavours.

Whiterock`s best ocean-front eatery
We have always loved Boathouse in Whiterock. The service is great, the food is fabulous, and the views are fantastic even on a cloudy day. The only minus is that you have to pay for parking. Their fresh seafood is worth a trip (we live about 30 minutes away) and I recommend their calamari and chop-chop salad over any steak (although their steaks are also fantastic)! :)

Wonderful service from our waiter
There was the 4 of us that came for dinner on Sunday night for our wedding anniversary. The waiter we had was magnificent. He was very pleasant and friendly to deal with. We want to thank him for an excellent service and for making our dinner very enjoyable.

Proud to entertain at the Boathouse
My husband and I entertained a long term friend and his wife at the Boathouse in White Rock. From the view, to the drinks, to our meal - it was a wonderful experience. We made reservations on-line knowing that seats upstairs could be a challenge. We ordered drinks downstairs, then were seated about 20 min. later. We were hoping for a deckside table overlooking the street but were unlucky - a note was posted ot the entry stating that table hopping was discouraged....Our food was delicious, well prepared and timely. All in all, we were quite proud to have our friends from Lethbridge visit our new 'fav. restaurant' and we will be back!!

8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food great ambiance
The food was excellant as was the ambiance but the service could have been better.
Our waiter wasn't very attentive... which was the one downside but other than that I'd definitely go back just probably ask to be seatted in a different area away from that waiter. He came by got our orders and didn't come by after that until our food came out...
I understand that whay we ordered took some time to make and if it was super busy then again I'd understand and let it go but it wasn't busy and he kept disappearing to somewhere... only time he was quick and attentive was when we were paying our bill...
Likebi said the food was awesome and I love the atmosphere but just not the service.

Wow! Impressed since last visit!
Highly recommended for food preparation and quality

A perfect summer's evening sunset. A good ambiance for business dining. Varied menu, well prepared meals and served by knowledgeable, helpful staff with a sense of humour. Families and other larger groups were present.

The hot crab dip was absolutely amazing and the food was ready quick
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This has been the 2nd time that I spent a birthday dinner here and I would have to say that the service here is always top notch. Even though the entire restaurant was packed full, our server was attentive the entire night. The food was delicious, I highly recommend the NY steak, it is absolutely mouth watering every time. I order it every single time I dine there. The complementary birthday cake was pretty good, a mud cake with a sparkling birthday candle. I love this restaurant and I would highly recommend this place to EVERYONE.

Boathouse White Rock
Dinner at the Boathouse several evenings ago was superb with lovely view, friendly staff and very good food.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even on a gloomy day
it's a great place to lift your spirits, and I don't just mean by the glass! It's comfortable and welcoming, the ocean view is something to get lost in (depending on the fog!). The four of us went for a weekend brunch and everyone enjoyed something different. I was feeling celebratory, it being my birthday month - yes, I'm stretching it for all it's worth!! - so I enjoyed a mimosa and a lobster grilled cheese. Oooh, so decadent and worth it! Even the little kids' birthday party not all that far away didn't detract.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A perfect experience!
From start to finish, my wife and I had a wonderful anniversary at the White Rock BoatHouse. Our service was exceptional, as was the food. Drinks were quickly served after being seated, followed by hot bread. Our appy's arrived promptly thereafter, as did our entrees. The food was prepared perfectly, and was absolutely delicious. The restaurant accommodated my request for a table in a particular location even on short notice, and surprised us with a complimentary dessert for our special occasion . We have dined at this particular location many times, and will definitely return again.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice evening out
We had a very nice evening at the White Rock Boathouse. It was easy to make the online reservations and we arrived early enough in the evening to get a nice table with a view. Our waiter was Crispin and he took great care of us and was helpful with food and menu descriptions and explaining the dishes we were interested in. we were celebrating a birthday and he brought a lovely dessert out for the celebration. We would return again for another special occasion. Thank you

Enjoyed a special night out with my Mother. We both enjoyed the king crab legs. The service was wonderful! Have already recommended it to friends. Don't miss out on Crabfest!

Bday celebration for our 4 yr old
It was gear to book with Open Table! The process was short, easy and we were accommodated as per our request to have a window side table. Our 4 year old enjoyed her birthday view more than anything! Thank you Boathouse & OpenTable.

It is a very nice restaurant
It is a very nice restaurant at which to entertain visitors because it has a good view of the Semiahmoo Bay and the food and service is consistently good.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good...but can still improve
Service was okay...this is my biggest complaint. They are nice but do not go out of their way.
Food...we had two menu's on our table which were not applicable at the moment so we ordered food that wasn't available.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A night out
Our dinner was delicious and the service was excellent. However, the fog at the scenic White Rock location totally obscured the beautiful view. Next time, please could you take care of that for us. Thanks.

Boathouse Restaurant, White Rock
This is one of our fave "go to's" when we want either seafood, or a romantic dinner. Their menu is often changing, and the items are a delight to browse through and choose our favourite for the evening. Hubby and I both had the Crab & Brie Stuffed BC Salmon the other evening, and it was delicious - very tasty, very moist (some places overcook the salmon so it becomes dry), and the crab and brie mixture really bumped it up a notch. It was served with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted sweet peppers, with broccoli. For a starter, we both chose the "Whiskey Crab Soup", both items of which were on the "Crabfest" menu - the soup was to die for!! Seriously, I could have had a second bowl of the soup, and called that dinner, it was so good!

White Rock Boathouse has an excellent location overlooking the water. They are now part of the Landry's Family affiliate for Restaurants, throughout North America. It is worth your while to sign up and join. The $25 registration fee comes right back to you, at your next dinner, in any of the affiliate restaurants. And, there are many.
This Boathouse has a great ambiance, with the table to ceiling windows. It was foggy, on our evening for dinner, not any water view, but the ambiance feel is still great. With the water view, that much more. The Manager, for the evening, Alicia, was very personable with excellent Customer Service Skills. The Hostess and Table Server were all very personable and helpful. The menu items were very delicious.

Seafood Lover's Paradise
I recently booked this restaurant for a reunion with a special friend and was not disappointed. We requested a window seat and were told at the time of booking that they would do their best but couldn't guarantee. I was very pleasantly surprised upon arrival to see that they had managed to accommodate my request. The hostess and server were both very polite and accommodating. I was very pleased to see their comprehensive wine and the food was excellent - everything cooked just right. The view was outstanding. I would have to say that the Boathouse in White Rock is now my favourite restaurant, this side of the Port Mann bridge.

Great Food, Service and View
Our party of four had steak or salmon dinners. The steak was done perfectly to a medium rare and the salmon was outstanding. We came early to enjoy the view and drinks and the waitress was polite and friendly and allowed us lots of time to talk before taking our orders. This was a great evening, wonderful ambience with ocean views and lighted trees and pier after sunset.
This is our fourth visit and we have never been disappointed.
