The food was tasteless no flavour. Our waitress gave us wrong information regarding the appetizer. I wish we wouldn’t came here.

We both ordered the Westcoast Benny Trio. Wasn't able to finish the dish. One of our meals the salmon was very salty and my friend was unable to eat it. The manager offered a free dessert but we both were full and there wasn't any room for dessert nor were we trying to get a discount of any kind, just wanted to give some feedback on our meals.

Kalamari and sauces lacked taste. Quite pricey for the establishment but service was decent. Patio closed due to recent forest fire smoke. May come back for the roof top patio.

It was literally just “ok”. The server was not very attentive and I felt at times like I was bothering her. The food presentation was less than stellar, and for the price ($60.99 for a crab entree) it should have been a lot better looking. The potatoes were undercooked and still hard. I also had to request for the kids meal to be adjusted to the $0.99 when an adult entree was purchased. I don’t think I should have had to remind the server about that when it’s literally advertised on their website. Overall the entire service and food was lacking.

The serve was terrible...had to wait for about 30 min. Even with reservation.
My husband is handicap and staff did not indicate there was an elevator so he had to climb full flight of stairs.
Waitress was to talkative about her personal life and didn’t offer additional bread ( only 2 small pieces in original basket). We predetermining appetizer and it was brought less than 5 min. Before our main course. We had 2 large glasses of wine and were not asked if we wanted refill. Bill came even before we finished eating.

Why I thought this time would be better is beyond me. Time and time again I am super disappointed. Extremely overrated. When you dine at the Boat House you pay for a name and a location. I would happily pay top dollar for a view if it has stellar food to accompany the view. The quality of food is totally subpar. We had calamari that was tiny, over floured, under cooked but yet dried out. My boyfriend had the fish and chips which were drenched in greasy batter and very little fish. I had the ahi tuna tacos that should have been called sushi rice tacos for the amount of actual tuna that was on top of them. The ice tea and wine was great. It has a beautiful view. And our server was pleasant. We will take our money elsewhere though. We should of went to Charlie Don’t Surf - it never disappoints!

Overall it was very good. The wind came up as we were on the top patio and it blew over the umbrella in front of us and barely missed us.Besides that the wind blew over both our wine glasses and caused them to spill out and nothing offered to replace the contents... that was very disappointing.

The lineup outside was confusing & people were jumping the line.
Service was fine as well as ambience.
For the expensive price, food wasn’t great. Fish & chips were over cooked or old, chips soggy.
Not a great experience. Not going back!

It’s too bad that we were told we had 1 hr 15 min to enjoy a full coarse meal and desert with friends. It made us feel very rushed. Our waiter was always running even leaving the table before we had finished ordering. Turns out we could stay longer but the ambiance was already ruined

The Boathouse has excellent social distancing and the food is superb quality. Also, they have a membership program that you can join for $25 and when you get your membership card you get a $25 credit on your next meal. I highly recommend it.

Steak was a bit tough and way over seasoned. Only got 4 prawns with it and not very big ones either. Ceasar salad was watery tasting. Wine over priced. Calamari was overcooked, so brittle it broke when you stabbed it.

Made a reservation and when we arrived prior to the reservation time there was a line up of walk-ins and a host taking names. Had to wait several minutes even with a reservation and walk-ins being seated before guests with Reservations.

Asked for a table in the rooftop patio with an umbrella.

Host on rooftop was not friendly and wouldn’t accommodate even though there were other tables available. Host watched us leave never acknowledged and thanked for visiting the restaurant. Definitely need to have some Guest Service Customer Service.

Carpets on stairs were dirty with visible old stains.

Always a great visit but this time - i noticed the guy who was rooftop “managing” was super rude” like manager of the universe type guy - another customer came up behind us waiting to get a table and instead of politely asking her, he snapped “Can you back up please. Little to close.” Waving his hand at her shooing her away.

We all forget social distancing rules when we are focused on other things (especially getting a great patio table on a sunny Sunday.) This guy needs to take it down a few notches and remember that she is a customer. Be polite, smile, be happy. Our server was incredible though!! Super friendly, kind and pleasant. Maybe she should be promoted to manager! :)

Your prices are way too high and menu is not as good as before. Doorman was too intense about social distancing rules, like we all had Covid.

Boathouse restaurant in White Rock has a beautiful view. The cocktails were tasty. The food is always very good. It was different right now because of all the COVID-19 precautions. They did a good job of maintaining social distancing. I felt that water refills should not have been from the same jug... perhaps water can be refilled from the back into fresh glasses? The employees were all wearing masks and were very pleasant. Overall, it was a good experience.
