"It was a quiet day for the restaurant, but super service, lovely breakfast and good coffee. The seafood of course is prevalent on the menu. Super place for a different kind of brunch. Not too expensive but much better than your average place."

"I've eaten here mostly at dinner time and have always had a great meal. Service has always been excellent! The most recent visit was disappointing. Both my brother and I were meeting here on his stopover between flights for a quick snack and we both had the seafood chowder.
The Chowder was luke warm at best, and didn't have much seafood as the cream based soup had mostly croutons and potatoes. It did taste good but you would expect it would contain much more seafood so I wasn't impressed. I did order Tea and that was well presented and hot. I will still come back as overall I really like the service and the food at this chain of Restaurants.

"We made a special reservation for Christmas Eve that was accepted and confirmed, but we were seated in the bar area when we arrived. This was not what we wanted and we complained about the seating location.
After some discussion and excuses we were seated in the restaurant section with a much better atmosphere and ambiance.
The food and service was great and it turned out to be a good experience once we were seated as per our reservation.

"My family and I went for dinner at the Boathiuse in Richmond on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly, but were not acknowledged by the server until 20 min later. It took another 25 min to receive our drinks and have our order taken. Appetizers arrived 1 hour later and not all at the same time. Some were waiting at least 15 min for theirs to arrive. The server did not come back and offer drink refills or see how things were. We had to chase her down to ask for a refill. She was very rude when she dropped off the refills; slamming the drinks on the table and walking away. Our dinner finally arrived about 3 hours after we were sat with no explanation as to why it took so long. We called over the manager who was fantastic and apologized for everything. We are not a group who complains but the service was not acceptable. The manager took care of some items on our bill which was unexpected but great. We would have to think very long and hard about returning to this location. If they updated the serving staff it would be a step in the right direction."

"Long wait for the food, unexpected so-so... Could be better, did have high expectation from them. Very disappointed. Decorating are outdated, whenever people walked beside us, felt like we were having earthquake... And the building will fall down anytime."

"The 'king crab' was snow crab and dry and tasteless. The ravioli was sent back because it was nothing close to what was described on the menu and was inedible, the seafood platter was severely overcooked. Our waitress was great and very accommodating, but she couldn't overcome the terrible food. We will not be returning"

"We have been to the Boathouse several times for nearly New Years Eve with our young kids, and this was not the best experience, not sure we will go again, one of the staff was abrupt and made me feel uncomfortable when explaining something about the meal."

"Having gone previously to othe Boathouse restaurants, we chose to stay close to home and visit the Richmond location for a nice meal with friens on New Years eve. Understanding that the menu was a fixed one for that evening, what we did not expect is to have food quality so low for the price per person. The salads lacked dressing, while the main course prime rib came thin as a bedsheet and well undercooked. The second attempt was even worse with the meat 50% Fat and tough. Finally on the 3rd attempt the meat was somewhat edible.
The best part of the night was the server and her attempts to keep us happy. She was so apologetic and did her best to make us feel better.
The manager did come over twice and in the end did take 50% off 2 of the meals, but it still leaves a bad taste on what should be a pleasant night.
