Great food as usual, but on
Great food as usual, but on the pricier side for what we ususally eat. I'm still baffled by the location - almost a nice view almost on the water but really not quite.
Enjoyed the salmon and cod special - delicious, and a shrimp pasta dish.

A kid-friendly option for seafood
The Boathouse offers a dependable menu of steak and seafood options. If you're looking for a good steak and tasty shrimp, you've made the right choice, though the other seafood options are fine as well.
It's a good choice to introduce youth/children to a more formal dining experience. We've been bringing our kids (now 16 and 14) since they were 10 and 8. The kid's menu remains true to The Boathouse's seafood theme, including among the usual options a salmon-and-fries combo that can help expand an adventureous young palate.
Crowd noise, while not boisterous, doesn't make for a particularly sedate experience. However, The Boathouse's reputation for seafood and their central location mean they'll be popular for years to come.

Best Mothers Day Dinner
I wanted to treat my family to seafood, but we always go to Chinese Restaurants. Food was excellent and service was great! Will go back again!

Nice, quiet lunch spot
We enjoyed a quiet, enjoyable lunch reuniting with long time friends. Very nice & tasty food and friendly, prompt service. The round table seating arrangement was ideal for maintaining conversation. We look forward to dining at The Boathouse again the next time we visit Richmond!

I've been here several times and I'm always satisfied. Menu is great, changes up frequently, some features you won't find at other Boathouse locations. Service is always decent to good, and preparation is excellent. Killer views year-round, great for a date or with the family. Enjoy!

Best Place in Richmond
This Landry's owned restaurant followed their standard for offering good food, good service, at a reasonable price. There were 7 of us in our group and we all ordered different items on the menu. All the food was good. The service was also very good. The wine list was a little thin in selection. The restaurant is a big place with a nice view of the boat docks nearby. If you are staying overnight close to the airport and need a good place to hang out and get a good meal, then the Boathouse fits the bill.

everything is good except
We are Happy with everything, service is wonderful. Except the seafood platter. Last time we tried it taste extremely delicious. This time all different food categories on the platter are all wrong, either is too spicy, or too salty, or too herby, too oily. Once we told the server, he took it off.

Had dinner Friday night to celebrate a birthday. Restaurant wasn't very busy, lots of parking. Richmond boathouse is getting old, but dinner was okay. This location is probably less busy and quieter than the other locations I've been to.

Entertaining out of town guests
Our friends like Seafood and we've eaten here several times since the food is West Coast, prepared and presented well and affordable.

A Wonderful Dining Experience
Our group dined at the Boathouse for a birthday celebration. The food, service and ambiance was incredible.

Was looking for a place to celebrate my birthday and decided to give the Boathouse a try. We were well received and seated right away. The food was good and portions were a decent size. My friend had the cheddar burger and was full by the end, and I had the Sirloin with Coconut Shrimp. It was cooked just right and the shrimp were tasty. We would have had dessert if we hadn't been so full. :-)
My only comment was that I found the price for my meal was a little too much for the size of the portion.
All in all I believe we will visit The Boathouse again.

Great fish and chips
Halibut fish and chips were outstanding. Local beer brewed for the restaurant was also very good. Rest of the menu looked great and it was difficult deciding what to order.

The food was good, I prefer the White Rock location - the Richmond location has more of a Red Lobster type feel than fine dining or romantic. Food was good but nothing to write home about.

I had a surprise party for my bridesmaids and was also 2 of their birthdays. I asked the waitress to prepare 2 pieces of cakes for them and she surprised me as well! The cake came in with sparkling candles !! It was great and she played along well :)

Have dined there before I found the noise of other guest a but loud . Service was great and the staff were kind and know the menu .
My husbands food (salmon was very dry which we were a bit taken back. The server and the manager was very nice about it had said sorry and were open to getting him something else from the menu we were ok with that but we choice not to take another entrie. But overlall was a nice dining experience.

Wonderful for Large Groups
We love the boathouse on a regular day, but this visit was following a graduation and it was my sister's birthday. We were a group of 16, including my grandfather in a wheelchair and a baby. They were able to seat us all comfortably and in an area of the restaurant accessible for my grandfather. Dinner was great! The appies came soon after we ordered them and our dinners came in a reasonable time after that. The food was delicious and the Pumpkin Cheesecake Burlee for dessert was SO good! What was really great was that even though we were a large group we were not forced to order from a set menu, which I found to be an issue with other restaurants. Our waitress was great! She made sure that we were all happy and the evening went perfectly.

Food good but service only OK
Been to the Boathouse a number of times. Food is always pretty good and this time was up to par. However, the server, though friendly, missed a few things. First off, one person having steak did not get a steak knife. Not life threatening but still an indicator of attention to detail. Water refills were slow. Lastly, my son was turning 16 and we mentioned this to the server but that was it. No slice of dessert with a sparkler or anything. It's these small touches that customers remember so this visit was not that memorable.
