The food was outstanding. And the atmosphere is very good. It has some lovely views of the river from the windows. We had a window side table. It was very nice. Well worth the money that we spent.

White Rock
About the restaurant
Uli's Restaurant is a White Rock institution. Opened in 1986 by Uli Blume, it was one of White Rock's original waterfront restaurants and quickly became a favourite among locals for its great food and friendly atmosphere. Uli's son Tyson took over operations in 2008 and he picked up right where his father left off – providing the White Rock waterfront with a fun and relaxed place to enjoy a vibrant atmosphere, stunning water views, refreshingly simple food, an extensive international beer list, and a diverse selection of wines. Chef Jennie Silk is also making quite an impression on locals as they flock for her impeccable local flavours on the menu.

The staff were so nice and the food was excellent. I find the pricing high but it’s no different than any restaurant of their quality. I love going there for any meal. A great place, I highly recommend it.

We have been going to the Lakeside Beach Club for at least 6 years. We have never had a bad meal, we have never had slow or bad service. This restaurant is our go to place for most family occasions. On this last outing we even got to sit at the legendary table 22. I just wish they still served sticky toffee pudding. Just sayin

My friend and I enjoyed a fabulous surf and turf luncheon. Steaks were perfectly done. We were not rushed and spent an hour and a half taking in the beautiful waterside views with pleasant private conversation. The vibe was energetic, yet you could not make out conversation at a table across from us, which is reassuring. The waitress was lovely, attentive and accommodating. A first visit for my friend and she will definitely come again. Another wonderful visit for me, and yes, I will definitely come again. A really great restaurant with great food and staff. Bonus - they will give you a $5 discount if you park at the designated nearby parking lots!

Stanley Park
About the restaurant
There’s something about a walk under the canopy of an old growth forest, or a brisk stroll on the seawall that awakens the senses and reinvigorates the soul. Experiences like this stay with you. And they inspired us to craft a lineup of beer to evoke that very same feeling. From windstorms to daytrips to incredible sunsets best viewed from the beach, every beer we make is a tasty tribute to Stanley Park and the experiences had within it. And just like the Park, we craft each one to be an exciting break from the everyday, an experience to be explored and savoured.
