We had a great meal. The food was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the staff, she served our meal with a smile. Was very helpful when we did not know what to order.

The Boathouse is a great way to experience Port Moody's waterfront. Full disclosure: I was instrumental in leasing a corner of the City's boat launch parking lot to create this restaurant. Boathouse food and service are consistently superior.

Went with friends recently for lunch. We sat by the window overlooking Burrard inlet in a wintry day. The ambience is amazing. We enjoyed our lunch except mine. I had the chicken and shrimp curry, the first bite was great but then I realize the shrimp tasted like beginning to spoil. I had the waiters attention and in no time... More

Have eaten at Boathouse Port Moody a few times since it first opened. Sadly, despite a good location and view as mentioned by others, I have been disappointed on most occasions. Our last meal there was Feb 3 to enjoy a DineOut Vancouver experience. Although the food was good when it arrived and the staff were pleasant, the service was... More

My family and I went there on a Wednesday night for dine-out Vancouver. There were lots of empty tables but the waiting time between each course was way too long. My food got switched with another person. I got medium steak when I asked for medium well. Also, medium well steak = burnt steak at this restaurant. Overall, not a... More

It's such a shame that the Boathouse in Port Moody (and in general) has gone downhill in the last few years. This used to be such a great place to hang out and get a good meal, but now the food is just mediocre. Which is sad since we are sadly lacking in the Tri-Cities for really good upscale restaurants.... More

We dropped in for lunch at this place for the first time. It is located on a tiny peninsula public park with good free parking, great view of nature in a large building. The mussels for were very fresh and tasty. The food came in reasonable time to prepare them fresh from scratch. Our waiter was knowledgeable, helpful, patient. We... More

From the minute you walk in there is something wrong with this place. You get treated with indifference. We got escorted to our table. It was set for 4 so my wife and i sat across from each other and the hostess removed two setting and let two on the same side of the table. The waitress was very nice,... More

This is a place with a good view but don't waste your money. This chain has gone steadily downhill last 5 years. Quality of seafood is absolutely terrible. Try any other chain such as Earls, Joey or Cactus Club. They are not even seafood restaurants but the dishes they have put this food to shame. Pick it up Boathouse 10... More

I have eaten in a number of the Boathouse Restaurants in Greater Vancouver over the past few years. What I cannot understand is why the food at this one is consistently poor. Its a great location and ambiance but we will not go there because we just know we will be disappointed again. Once bitten twice shy...or four times now!
