We've been here several times over the years. The location is great, beautiful decor and great views. The ambiance is really good as well. The food. The menu and food continues to un inspire. Everything is saucy and sweet. Sugar in everything. I don't know why sugar is needed to dress up a meal. Even the salads are sweet. I... More

We visit Vancouver at least twice a year to visit our children. We always go to the Boathouse Restaurant at some point for lunch or dinner. The food and service has always been very good and luckily this year we hit Crabfest for lunch. The location here is great at Rocky Point in Port Moody with free parking, great Shoreline... More

Experienced what I have been hearing for some time. Quality has dropped off significantly for an old "go to" place :( Driest king crab legs (2 orders) I think we have ever had and portion sizes that leave you hungry. To be fair, the caesar salad was excellent. Love the location, but that is it for me.

I like to take my daughter here occasionally for some classy culinary enjoyment. Its the beautiful ocean and heated patio that compliment the seafood so well. We recently enjoyed watching the final four university mens basketball final while enjoying the warmth of the heaters above us and the steamed snow crab that stood not a chance. Always a pleasant experience... More

The view is awesome, the service is super pleasant, but the prices are a bit high - however, the food is good. The place is a bit noisy, so overall, we will be looking for some other location to have dinner out when we are looking just for good dinner that I don't have to cook.

The location is awesome and the place is nice. Very. As is service. But the pros end here. The menu is VERY expensive, completely out of touch with the quality of the food, that is around the bottom end of average for what you could expect in a pub. We had the shared seafood platter (that should be like a... More

Perfect timing for Crabfest. Went with family, two of us had the Crab Trio and two of us had crab stuffed salmon. We shared mussels and crab dip as appetizers. Both meals were excellent, the service was very good as well and the servers were all very pleasant. Hopefully we will get a chance to go again before we head... More

This used to be our go to place....not any more! My salmon was over cooked which made it so dry and tasteless, not good when you're a seafood restaurant . The three other guests were not impressed either and we all ordered something different. So, we won't be back. Save your $$$
