    I had the Beyond Burger with yam fries. The food was tasty, but the burger was small and the helping of yam fries was tiny. My friend had the Grilled Salmon with potatoes and seasonal vegetables, which was well-cooked and had decent presentation, but was also a tiny dish. The service was good - I was offered a second ginger ale on the house.

    Horrible dinner! Steak sent back twice and no compensation other than taking off a half eaten meal from the bill. Raw vegetables and cold potatoes not once but twice! The poor server felt so bad but it wasn’t his fault, he was great. We are local and I will never go back here! Do not recommend. Go to the Pub next door!

    The Fish and Chips were slightly crispier than I'd like but delicious nonetheless. Everyone else's food was fantastic (mixed platter and grilled salmon). Did the "meal deal" and the mixed greens to start was a highlight. Raspberry cake cheesecake that my parents shared was absolutely splurge worthy!

    Food was fresh and wonderfully prepared. Seasoning level was perfect on my Lobster Ravioli and husband loved his favourite peppercorn steak. Our server, Michael, was very friendly and gave us the perfect amount of attention. Thanks Michael for making our anniversary special.

    Our server was rarely available, and didn’t come back at all for 1/2 hour after we finished our meal to offer more drinks or our bill. We would have sat another 45 minutes or so and had a couple more drinks. Instead we left and paid our bill at the front. Food was ok, but the service was very disappointing especially since it was my husband’s birthday and our first time out in months since we have a toddler at home.

    Menu pricing has increased quite a lot for what you get - seems a bit overpriced which was the only drawback with coming here. Luckily for us, we had an AMAZING server, Michael, who was so perfect in every way. He definitely made the experience great, and would be the only reason I would come back to Boathouse.

    BIG plates of good food. It was Mother's Day so quite busy but the service was a bit lacking and they didn't clear dirty plates from the table until we asked. Overall, I'd go back again :)

    Thank you for this opportunity to share our experience in your restaurant on May 7, 2022. The person seating our party insisted on placing us in a dark corner overlooking the kitchen, when different tables where requested a lot of excuses came forward [ no-one can serve this area / the empty booth between two other parties can not be used / the tables at the window are not available] He told me I should go someplace elsewhere to wait for permission to have a table of my choosing at this point I felt misunderstood. As I sat myself in a booth waiting for my people to join me, he argued with me saying [ not sure you can set here ] I noticed people being seated at the windows, also the first location I selected was now being filled and the booths next to me were receiving lots of service. With-in 3mins a nice waiter [Dylan] offered water and menus. my girlfriends arrived and we had a beautiful birthday brunch because Dylan took charge of the situation. Dylan should be rewarded. I would recommend this location and include a warning about the awful person who made me feel uncomfortable.

    We three attended in high expectations as previous dinners were wonderful if not opulent. Unfortunately the restaurant was almost overbooked and our food delayed and frankly overcooked. The manager Kim was very gracious and understood the dynamics by providing steaks as requested. Our server, Jim, is a most agreeable and attentive young man. Overall the experience was memorable as a family event though the “party” atmosphere took away from the usual quiet sophistication of the Boathouse. Definitely recommend the service and quality.
