Richmond >Boilerhouse Restaurant
Needs more work and creative meals. I live in Pt. Richmond and would love to see this place succeed. It is a great location. I had brunch there a rew months ago and it was fabulous; however, I went there last night and was very disappointed. My husband ordered the hamburger which was okay but would have been better with a different bun - like a ciabatta roll to give it more personality. I had the special - beef ribs with rice and bok choy. The ribs were on the tough side but the sauce was good and some of the rice was still uncooked. These are such simple fixes - slow cook the ribs so the meat is tender and falls off the bone. I will probably go back and try it again.
Great Brunch Place.
We went there for brunch over the weekend and it was great. The food was very good and it's great to be right on the Bay in the Old Ford Plant. There is lots of area to stroll right along the Bay and the Bay Trail goes all the way from here to Emeryville without stopping.
I've heard it's a great place for a drink after work. so I'll have to try that next.
Terrible food & service. There was no meat listed on the menu. The service took forever and when the food arrived, it was cold. This restaurant should go out of business. It is a complete ripp-off.
worse place ever. we went there for dinner, wait 10 minutes for the host, got seated, wait 15 minutes for waitress to show up, and get us our water. and when we ask about the special, she said they decided not to serve dinner menu that night, only the burger and tacos, not even the salads. so we ordered, waited 40 minutes for the foods to come, and it was cold and so salty. and I can even get some one to refill my water. what a dump. even my yound girl said "never again". be warned, stay away.
