There is a dearth of nightlife in this town, as I found out when looking for a place to stop after rehearsal. The place I stopped at first had a so-so live band and virtually no audience. However, a few minutes later, found this place...More

We had lunch at this pub and while it was not overly busy, there were only 2 servers and they had a hard time keeping up with the number of customers, hence slow service. There was one large group of about 12 people and our...More

Over the past few weeks, have stopped by various pubs on the way home from rehearsal. Unlike at least one, which had already quit serving when I arrived, or another, which was pulling in the patio furniture, as I went in, this place actually had...More

I went to this pub last week. I have been here before and the food and service was acceptable. Not so anymore. The waitress wasn’t friendly and did a terrible job of making us feel welcome. It took 50 minutes for our food to show...More

Had dinner my first night here and enjoyed the experience. It was quite busy as there was some type of raffle fundraiser going on. Even with all the chaos the waiter was quite attentive. I loved the "surf and turf" which was the perfect portion....More

Had occasion to drop by about 10:30pm, surely late enough to qualify for "night life". Fairly quiet, but lots of TV's going - Olympics, Basketball, etc. Bar stools full, people having fun. I suspect it would be busier if not for the snow. Meanwhile, prompt...More

There are definitely two types of restaurant/bars in downtown NW: those that people go to, and those that they don't. The Paddlewheeler is clearly one of those that is popular with locals and visitors alike. Just for fun, I checked out a number of local...More

There is pay parking right out on the quay very close and I don't think there is free parking anywhere around the Paddlewheeler...Sorry about that!

I don't mean to be "cute", but depends on where you are coming from. If from Vancouver, Skytrain to New Westminster station, take east exit, turn right, up and over tracks, you are there. Hope this helps.
