After a wedding the night before we were looking for a place to have Father's Day breakfast. They opened up their lounge just for our group of 12, it was GREAT! Perfect send off for us all to travel our separate ways home!

I would rate this as a nice location and not bad prices. But the food is good not great, so if you are in the neighborhood I would give it a try, but don't go out of your way to come here.

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.
