The Boathouse Restaurant
A Vancouver favourite for thirty years and counting
What pairs best with a wild sockeye salmon or Pacific snow crab legs? A stunning waterfront view, of course. It’s a principle that’s fuelled The Boathouse Restaurant since the first location opened in Coal Harbour in 1981, and today, with seven restaurants at seven gorgeous locations across the lower mainland, that commitment to both fresh, local ingredients and beautiful seaside vistas remains strong.
The English Bay location may well be the most iconic beachfront dining option in the city: the heated deck overlooking the seawall is the best spot to people watch on a sunny summer afternoon, to take in a spectacular West Coast sunset or to catch the fireworks during the Celebration of Light. The waterfront pub is a favourite meet-up spot for locals; the panoramic view from the dining room is nothing short of breath-taking, even on a rainy Vancouver evening.
As an Oceanwise partner, the menu at The Boathouse is one that serves up quality seafood, showcasing the best from B.C. waters alongside great ingredients from local farms and a huge selected of B.C. VQA wines. Whether you’re catching up with friends over brunch, celebrating something special over a perfectly grilled certified Angus sirloin, or sharing a pot of steamed local mussels, The Boathouse offers a taste of fresh, local, honest food—with a great view on the side.
