Uli's Restaurant is a White Rock institution. Opened in 1986 by Uli Blume, it was one of White Rock's original waterfront restaurants and quickly became a favourite among locals for its great food and friendly atmosphere. Uli's son Tyson took over operations in 2008 and he picked up right where his father left off – providing the White Rock waterfront with a fun and relaxed place to enjoy a vibrant atmosphere, stunning water views, refreshingly simple food, an extensive international beer list, and a diverse selection of wines. Chef Jennie Silk is also making quite an impression on locals as they flock for her impeccable local flavours on the menu.

one of our favorites, a restaurant that focuses on quality food with local supply, they do what we all talk about doing every day.
Along with excellent food, they are willing to accommodate your diet needs and will make a special meal on the spot, very considerate.
Beer and cocktails are amazing.
Rustic ambience, it really fits the area and has a great ocean view from almost every outdoor seat.

Amazing burgers and our server Sarah was one of the best servers we’ve ever had. She was very helpful in helping us decide what to have and super nice. We’d come back just for her. The awesome food just makes it better!

The burger at Uli’s is absolutely delicious. It is as good a burger as I have eaten anywhere! The burger itself is worth the trip from Vancouver. This is a very casual restaurant, with a fun, very relaxed atmosphere.

Service was good but 150 with a tip for a couple burgers and 2 beer for me and 2 wine for my wife is a bit much . This is more than i pay for a good burger in vegas even with the exchange and they are better burgers there. It was a special occasion and heard the burgers were good , but probably wont be back.

I’m torn. Excellent selection of beer, but our food took more than 30 minutes to arrive, and my wife wasn’t happy with her schnitzel. Hard and cold. My sons and I enjoyed our burgers. I’m not sure if I would recommend Uli’s.

My husband and I had my birthday dinner at Uli's. We hadn't been there for a very long time and saw the article in the Province newspaper about the burgers. We didn't have burgers but will definitely go back to try them in the future. Not Uli's fault, but the view is ruined by construction across the street and there was a lot of smoke/smog in the air so the ocean ambience was missing. All in all, our server was awesome and the paella and crab cakes delicious.

Totally surprised this restaurant got so many good reviews! We ordered calamari as a starter it was cut into thicker strips and was a little on the rubbery side with little taste. My main was the Risotto mushroom dish which was super strong & drenched in white wine. Maybe as a side dish at best way to strong! My husband ordered spatzle & some deep fried meat. Spatzle was soggy with no taste & meat was ok. I think the only good thing was the Cesar (drink). Our bill was 110$ borderline ridiculous. I could have gone to the Keg for that. I feel the dishes were totally overpriced for what they were at 25$ each. Also the seats outside were all beat up & uncomfortable. Another disappointing meal out in White Rock 😔

As usual when visiting this restaurant we enjoyed good food and great service. The Neptune Schnitzel is awesome, the Paella fantastic, the burgers unique and delicious, the beer selection is interesting and the service was friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. What a great way to spend a summer evening with friends, sitting outside enjoying a delicious dinner on White Rock’s waterfront.

The food was excellent - as always...
But the service was unusual bad : (

Too bad - as I had guests from Europe with me and was bragging about ulis and how great it is... not a great impression when it comes to the service : (
But everyone liked their food : )

Went for a belated father's day dinner. Asked for patio seating over the phone 10mins prior to arriving for the reservation and was told nothing available but people seem to be finishing up. But regardless got seated inside and no option to move offered when seating opened up outside. Appie was okay but the entrees definitely suffered. Both my parents ordered the smoked chicken.. my dad's comments were that the 'save on food rotisserie chicken is better' my brothers burger came more than 5 mins after the rest of our meals because they keyed in the wrong order. Then when the bill came
It showed a $19.00 discount which I thought was for my brothers late delivered meal. I started feeling a bit better about the experience but turns out no they charged us extra for a fish sandwich and instead of just deleting it off the bill completely they just gave us a 19.00 discount to off set the charge. Kind of misleading...over all went for the patio by the beach experience and could've better spent my money.

Uli’s was amazing! We decided on it after it being a friend’s favourite spot on the beach!
Service was excellent, the food was delicious. Ordered the mussels, baked Brie, and calamari..with the miso sablefish for dinner. I cannot wait to go back.
Eat here, you will be so pleased.

We really enjoyed our meal here. Everyone had something different and it was delicious (I tried everyone’s food). We ate the wild mushroom risotto, the short rib rigatoni, pork belly and paella. We started with the crab cakes. The only thing that I would change is to not order the crab cakes. They were delicious but it ended up being 8 bucks a crab cake and they were really small, so the value wasn’t there...but they were quite good. Also all dishes were hot when they came to the table and everything was so flavourful.

The veggie burger was one of the worst I’ve had for the expensive price. Was just okay, when I thought it would be fantastic for 20$. And the salad was very plain and had barely anything to it. The burger was just mushy and spilled out the sides, and was just all patty and barely any toppings. This was true for my friend as well who ordered the same thing.

The food was mediocre at best and very expensive for what you get. Service was fine except they knew we were there for a birthday and did nothing special. Definitely won’t go back.
