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.

Not one to leave reviews but I’ve been thinking about the dinner I got here since we went. It was SO good. Not the cheapest, but I was so satisfied with everything I would 100 go again. We had a reservation and they had our table ready with a view when we got there! Our server was awesome and super patient with us as we couldn’t decide what to get lol. Overall just a really great experience.

Lovely food, and service. Unfortunately a group of about 6 men came in and sat at the bar and were particularly noisy. We were sitting near the door and could hardly hear each other. Difficult to converse.

Absolutely LOVE Uli’s! The food is amazing and the menu had so many delicious choices that I have to go back and try everything. As someone who must be gluten free I also really appreciate so many options whereas usually I may have 2-3 at best. Our server was efficient, friendly, attentive and fun! I also had some time to talk with the owner and he was so nice, really supportive to offer a safe place for gluten free and happy to do so, gave some interesting information about their ingredient sourcing, and love knowing the history of the restaurant and the family connections. With a sunny ocean side view and a quiet, comfortable atmosphere, we had such a great lunch. I’ll be back ASAP!

Great food and service. The restaurant was very busy but our server handled the volume well. Food was timely and hot when it arrived.
Good value for money and was perfect for a casual dinner with friends.

This is a popular place in White Rock. Their hamburgers are very good and are worth the visit. Unfortunately, other dishes such as the Paella prepared with risotto rice and very little more, and the incredibly spicy Vongle dish are simply not worth the price.

Little bit of confusion with the reservation but that was straightened out and we got a table fairly quickly.
We were seated in the middle right next to the kitchen window which was interesting but not what I had invisioned for a anniversary dinner . The noise level was fairly loud but it was a Sat night .

Having said that the service was very good , very personable and polite .They even asked if I wanted my meal less on the spicy side as I ordered Linguine Con Vongole which oddly I thought came with Chorizo.
Having said that it came the traditional way with clams and white wine sauce, very good .
Food was very good and the menu had a good selection as my wife does not eat seafood and has a few dietary restrictions. She had a very good burger.
All in all a good experience ,however next time a different table would be better .

Good food , a massive selection of wine and craft beer , cozy atmosphere.

Would recommend to anyone for dining on the beach .

It was my husband's birthday & he loves burgers so I booked after reading they had the best burgers in the Lower Mainland - this place did not disappoint. Crab cakes were delicious, as we're drinks and dessert! Both of us loved the burgers. We got the skinny fries & the wedges and shared both - both were amazing. They put a candle in my husband's dessert as a nice touch so that was great service! Waitress was great & provided excellent recommendations.

The food and service were fantastic. I love coming here.Everything was great except for some reason this time the restaurant got quite smokey mid-way through lunch to the point my clothes smelled like a cooking grill afterward. If it wasn't for the smoke, I would have given it a 5 star.

Our group of six had a lovely lunch. Our server was very considerate of our needs. The indoor temperature was on the cold side but apparently that was because they had the door open while moving the patio furniture indoors on a windy, rainy day. The signature burgers were a hit, as was the grilled chicken brie sandwich.

Great breakfast. Both of us had a different version of their eggs Benedict as a Saturday brunch. Both were fabulous, one was crab cakes and the other was a special containing shrimp, goat cheese and something else. We shared one of each. Usually I can’t eat an entire breakfast, but these were so delish I finished both. Eggs were cooked perfect and the hollandaise sauce was so tasty. The potatoes were a nice accompaniment, but understated. And the coffee was amazing. Great service as well, really enjoyed our lovely server, Justine. She was fantastic. We have had both breakfast and dinner here before, every time was wonderful.

Worst thing I can say, and it's not about the restaurant; the waterfront, under construction has killed the Drive. Friday night, it was like a ghost town. White Rock should have done better.
