I have genuinely eaten better salmon and potatoes on a flight. The potatoes were reheated and bad. The salmon was not fresh enough. Good wine list and view but this place needed to close.

We've enjoyed the restaurant largely for its scenic waterfront location. That latter quality led to the restaurant's November 30 closure. Construction is soon beginning on a massive residential development on lands surrounding the restaurant site.

Recommend for family atmosphere. Not high end but solid mid range with adequate portions for the price. Would have appreciated a table away from young families .

I went here with a large group of people and we arrived in early evening just before the sun had set. The first thing you notice is how quiet it is around the restaurant and how it is situated right on the water. Going inside, you have tables that look out onto the harbor and the mountain views across the... More

My girlfriend and I went there for brunch today and it was not good at all. Eggs benny x2 was cold and coffee was bad. Too bad because this used to be a great restaurant.

After getting caught in heavy traffic getting across the border, we missed our reservations in Vancouver. We decided to drive on, reaching Horseshoe Bay at dusk. We followed the road to the center of town and headed toward the water. Finding The Boathouse was such a surprise. Great meal. Beautiful view. Delicious maple salmon dinner. Highly recommend a stop here.

Went for a midweek Birthday dinner after a long time. The location is great, on the water, watching the ferry and boats. The service was slack and not polished. You'd expect much more as a minimum standard for a restaurant of this calibre. Food was okay. Nothing to speak off, tasted just okay and didnt have some items and desert.... More

It was our first time at Horseshoe Bay and we arrived around 2 hours in advance of our boarding time. We opted for this restaurant for lunch as it was right on the water and off of the main busy street. We arrived right after it opened for the day so it wasn't too busy. We sat on the patio... More

I have been going to the Boathouse whenever I have visitors in town. I love the relaxed atmosphere, happy hour is a great deal! Usually a late lunch is a good time. Oysters are fresh and tasty, rest of the seafood is good. I was there last Thursday with my family including a 9 year old. The staff was very... More

The restaurant was very busy and it had a good buzz about the place Ordered drinks and food which was served quickly. My wife ordered a... More
