"As a previous reviewer said, think of it as renting the incredible view but lord knows don't think of it as a meal to look forward to, unless by looking forward you mean the hour it took between our apps and when the waitress came to tell us the kitchen had lost our order but would rush it to us, which they promptly did within 45 minutes, having doubtlessly delayed long enough to cook my wife's salmon to the consistency of shoe leather."

"Despite the restaurant not being busy, our group of 7 had to wait a very long time (45 mins) for our meal to arrive. Our server was not very good either. This is the second time eating here and we were disappointed the first time too (only 3 people). Would not come back to this Boathouse again."

"This was a terrible experience. Service was painfully slow and then the food was completely inedible. We left everything virtually untouched.
It was obvious and the server asked what was wrong. We told her but the answer was "Oh well, too bad". Basically we threw our money away.
Never never never going back to that or any other Boarhouse

"I was at the Horseshoe Bay Boathouse for brunch on Easter Sun., March 27th with 2 friends.
We enjoyed our drinks & cobb salads very much & the service was excellent but we were a bit
disappointed that the restaurant didn't have a special Easter Brunch menu.
Viewing the changing BC ferrys, as they sail in & out of The Bay, & the wildlife is always interesting & entertaining. Very enjoyable.

"My daughter and I shared one of the special Crab Fest dishes - a selection of items. The crab, both in quality/freshness and preparation was sub-standard - over-cooked and under-flavoured. The BoatHouse usually excels in fish and seafood preparation. This "special event" was disappointing, however, the restaurant is still a favourite for its other amenities and menu choices."

"The Boathouse Horseshoe Bay consistently delivers on great service, meal choices and overall quality. We live in the neighborhood and frequent the restaurant at least once a month. As Landry's Select members, we also gain additional benefits. The great news is that the restaurant is great for locals and visitors alike. From incredible steelhead salmon (blackened) to halibut (grilled not miso crusted) to wonderful fish and chips, you can't go wrong. This said, do watch out for the tiny lobster (not worth it) meal. Welcome staff can be a little more welcoming and pleasant (this is a consistent "issue") but the chef and crew along with dining room staff are excellent. Enjoy!"

"We have had lots of very nice lunches at your restaurant. A great treat for a group of us to come over from Gibsons for lunch. Of 8 of us, two were satisfied with their lunches (the salad orders). We all agreed..won't be back until the memory of greasy burger, non crisp bacon on the chicken sandwich, and worst of all...although the fries were very good, the four of us who had them just broke out laughing when we saw the teeny tiny serving that we each received. Service was slow (we waited 65 minutes for our meals) but we did not mind as we were in no rush. The server explained that you were extra busy and we had no problem with that. We all thought the food was mediocre at best. The fish tacos looked impressive, but the amount of actual fish relative to batter, soggy coleslaw and packaged soft tortillas equaled another unimpressive meal. The soup was fine...not overly hot...more tepid...but tasty. The salad orders....large portions of boxed greens topped with fish were rated good by the two salad eaters."

"The deck and views in spring/summer/fall is unbeatable in Horseshoe Bay. Good food and friendly service in an old fashioned kind of way. One of our go-to restaurants for dinner throughout the year and also day time when the deck is available."
