This was our first time to this particular restaurant in New West. It is in a very good location and I expect the view is amazing in summer time since it is near the Fraser River. We took the opportunity to take advantage of the...More

The location is excellent and the food is good. It’s not 5 star, menu is broad and the food is consistent. A good place for lunch.

Nice restaurant on the Fraser river. Well kept, clean with a decent menu specializing in seafood. There were items for those not wanting fish such as burgers and chicken. Service was a lot faster in the bar than the restaurant. Quality of the food was...More

This is a hidden gem on the water. Great food and the view is stellar. I had a business meeting here during lunch and the environment was great for a business conversation over lunch.

Has not been a great spot to eat for a long time. Overpriced and underwhelming, not a spot I would go again. Revamping of the menu would be good, downtown prices shouldn’t apply here. However staff is professional and very courteous, definitely impressed with that!

I took clients here for lunch- they were blown away at the view. The mixed seafood grill and Clam chowder are my go to items. Others had Grilled salmon and halibut and chips. Everyone enjoyed their meals

Cold Restaurant. Tough Steak that ypu had to saw into. Undercooked Prawns, and no word of a refire. We will not gp there again. Poor example of a once great chain. Reduced to bad lobby food of a hotel.

Because I feel the New Westminster Boathouse has always been inconsistent I cannot indorse going there. The Keg was just as bad. Now that New west has great restaurants like Wild Rice and The HUB, goodbye Boathouse.
