Similar to Clarke Quay but laid out in one line along the river so seems a bit confronting with so many venues chasing you for business. Plenty of choice for food & bars but looked a little over priced for what was on offer. If you walk from Clarke to Marina Bay you'll pass through Boat Quay.

We took the Singapore River tour and passed by Boat Quay. We walked back after the boat tour to see it up close. I was a little disappointed as it was mostly restaurants catering to tourists. Then again it's Singapore so maybe this should not be unexpected. But if you're looking to have a night out drinking and eating in... More

I felt that this place was too touristy for my liking. There were a number of restaurants located along the singapore river and they were not cheap by local standards. As a local, when I'm walking by, usually the servers will not call out or solicit business from me but I had seen them soliciting from tourist. By still beautiful... More

Plenty of good options for restaurants all within a 2-block distance. Lots of different cuisines... A little bit on the pricey end, but they have lots of promotions and discounts so a little pre-planning will surely help you.

The second most famous Quay after the Clarke, this one too has a similar setting. Restaurants, pubs, night clubs, people selling curios, tattoo parlours. It is a full on assault on your senses especially on the weekends. Rates are approx 30 to 40 percent steeper, and what you are paying for is the location and experience rather than food.

Nice for a walk to take in the sights. There are lots of restaurants and bars to cater to the young crowd and tourists. I personally find this place expensive and touristy.

Walking along Boat Quay is full of surprises to your senses. Water side restaurants that specialise in Seafood, Crab a speciality & Chill Crab is a must. Ideal for either a lunch or Dinner. Local bars are also around as are some late night clubs only a street back from the water.

In my humble opinion, you're have a nicer time at Clark Quay than Boat Quay - that's assuming you're over 40
