Overpriced, greasy fish and chips
July 26, 2014

Craved fish and chips and a friend recommended Charthouse. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to expectations: the batter was too thick, greasy, and rather tasteless; the halibut was paper-thin, fries were also greasy and limp; and the entire meal overpriced at $18.
I should have dined at one of the numerous fish and chips eateries along the boardwalk. The same... more

Very Good not Quite Great
July 09, 2014

Great location, friendly service. Seafood was fresh and well, though simply, prepared. We had the Charthouse Seafood platter with its generous variety of shellfish, including 2 lobster tails, and 2 pieces of snapper and a peach Melba! A nice traditional family restaurant.

June 30, 2014

This was my parents favorite restaurant, my mom loved the sunsets. We have gone for family dinners here 2 - 3 times a year, for about 10 years.The food is good, just not as tasty at times. The specials are usually good value and tasty.

Very good
June 17, 2014

Great location. Right on the water. Seating area was glassed in with a heater for when it is cool. They also have blankets at each seat to keep you warm.
If it is warm the glass doors can open.
Food was good.

Great view. Very affordable. Variety of dishes
May 28, 2014

Excellent place for a family reunion, go with friend, customer or else. Nice variety of dishes, not just fish. But fish is pretty good though. Price is very reasonable. Awesome view and even better and service.

Wine (white) was served - after half hour after that - lukewarm
...and then food another half hour....and it did not have any taste at all...vegetables were just warm up (I guess it is alright), but there were nothing to "cover them" - like oil/butter/dressing/ anything to make carrot and... more

Average food, dated decor
May 12, 2014

I recently had lunch at the Charthouse Restaurant in Steveston. I ordered the Ahi Burger and it was a disappointment! Why would you have Swiss Cheese or Mango Chutney on an Ahi Tuna Burger? The Ahi Tuna was boring .. no taste, seasoning. I ordered the tuna Rare.. the cook just flashed it on the broiler .. more like Blue... more

Good food, nice atmosphere. Needs a child-friendly area
January 03, 2014

Had lunch with my husband on Saturday afternoon. Only 3 tables were full, yet a couple with 2 babies were seated directly behind us. It would have been nicer, since the restaurant was virtually empty, if the family with the cranky little ones would have been placed a little farther away. The view from the restaurant is lovely. The decor... more

Had Sunday lunch here and were soooo disappointed. The view is great. That's about it.
My husband had fish and chips (see, that says, "and chips") not sure if potatoes have gone up vastly in price or what, but the serving of chips was stingy.
I had eggs bennie which were advertised to come with potatoes- they did. Three little... more

Charthouse needs a new chef
September 02, 2013

We two couples had dinner there Sept. 2_13, despite memories of not so good food years ago (we are locals). We had the three fish selection, part of which was stuffed with shrimp, all on rice.

June 22, 2013

Great location in the Steveston area overlooking the fishing boats and Fraser River where it meets the ocean. Our salads were fresh and nicely presented by a tad on the stingy side. I had sole neptune and my wife had steak. Both disappointing. I usually avoid restos with a great view knowing that folks will go there just for the... more

Much Better than the Weather
May 30, 2013

We had the day to kill after checking out of our accommodation in Vancouver. After reading about Steveston on TripAdvisor, we dumped our bags at Yvr Airport and took the Canada Line (SkyTrain) and bus to this nice little fishing village in the district of Richmond. The only trouble was that the Vancouver weather (rain) persisted. So all we could... more

Nice location, disappointing food
January 06, 2013

Great views, and location, but the food was uninspiring. My husband will only order a burger if it's homemade, and this one claimed to be. When it arrived it was obvious it was just a frozen patty. Rotten lettuce in my salad. The decor is very dated. We would not recommend, or return.

Location, view and value
November 29, 2012

The Charthouse Restaurant has one of the best views of any restaurant in Richmond - or Vancouver, for that matter. The staff are always pleasant, and the food is good. We recently enjoyed one of many fine meals we have had at the Charthouse. The meals were tasty, well-portioned, and excellent value!

Delicious, but pricey
November 18, 2012

Enjoyed various appetizers at the Charthouse with a group of around 30. The food offerings were very good, and the service was fine. My only negative observation was that the evening was rather costly.
I noted that we were among the only people at the restaurant on a Friday night - not sure what, if anything, that signified.

We go to the charthouse often and we love it. The owner is awesome and so are his staff. The clam chowder is amazing!!

Barely mediocre
October 07, 2012

It was dark outside while we were having dinner so I can't speak to the view, but I can say that not even an amazing view would bring me back to the Charthouse. Despite being right in Steveston the food, especially the fish and chips, were bland and disappointing and the food was actually quite expensive. Given how many options... more

Sunset on the Fraser
September 04, 2012

My ladyfriend and i stopped by The Charthouse for a seafood dish and watch the sunset. I was born in Steveston and lived there when it was a true commercial fishing town. We arrived just before an amazing sunset. The lady that served us was a delightfully funny lady. We told her that the blue moon would be out after... more

August 05, 2012

We has the Almond Crusted Sole but the rice pilaf was not fresh & almonds were just dropped on top the fillet; fresh steamed broccoli & carrot were perfectly done; the side salad was just greens & one tomato quarter; waitress was very friendly but forgot the early tea/ coffee request with the salads coming first. Maybe past it's prime... more

Although the location is lovely, on the dock in the quaint fishing village of Steveston,part of Richmond BC, the service for Sunday lunch on this sunny summer day was terrible.

Terrible, old fish
December 19, 2011

We went for fish and chips- a staple in Steveston. This was the worst ever. We couldn't eat it and sent it back. They brought us halibut instead which was edible not certainly not great. Courteous enough but no apology for the terrible fish. Felt bad for the waitress. We will NEVER go back to this restaurant as the food... more

We've been coming to the Charthouse for years - it's my mom's favourite restaurant - so whenever we're in town, we usually end up there. The location is terrific, above the docks @ Steveston wharf. Most seats have a great view of the water and the busy dock/wharf area.
The menu has a wide variety (not always a good thing),... more

The food was so so and we came out to find a very expensive parking ticket . Parking has always been a problem here but now they want to increase revenues by slamming you with a very expensive ticket if you can't figure out how to navigate their confusing and difficult pay parking system . It really makes this place... more

Located upstairs (there's a lift) on the dock in Steveston district of Richmond, this place has almost everything going for it, except really fine food. I'd go back for a lunch, but would probably look further for a really good dinner.

This is the typical very nice restaurant.
You'll get excellent service, very good food, very nice ambiance.
The only thing is that I found it a little bit pricy, but that's the point. You go to NICE places expecting to pay good money for your food and service. So I guess overall it wasn't that pricy. That's why I say... more

There are so many options in the area... Charthouse has the upper hand with the second story view (great views of the waterways and fisherman's wharf), but they fall short in the food department. Not bad mind you, an enjoyable experience for sure. However, when compared to other options, it's easier to choose a competitor.
