Dinner at The WaterShed Grill | Weekend in Squamish

It's our dad's 60th birthday, and to celebrate, we're spending the weekend at Squamish, BC.

After a quick side trip to Whistler and spending a couple hours at Alice Lake, we had dinner at The WaterShed Grill.

To start, I had the Gin Fizz while hubby ordered the Blueberry Lemonade. It was scorching hot in our patio seat by the river, and the ice on our drinks melted immediately.

For our appetizer, we tried their Crab Cakes. It was delicious and steaming hot. We're off to a good start here.

Crab Cakes
Wild rock crab, house-seasoned and pan-fried golden brown, basil aioli, lemon and mixed greens

I chose the salmon burger for our main meal while hubby had the river burger. It was a good salmon burger, but the river burger is definitely the better burger. You can never go wrong with perfectly cooked beef patty and bacon.

Salmon Burger with Poutine
Wild sockeye salmon fillet, pickled red onion, lettuce, tomato and wasabi mayo

River Burger with Onion Rings
6 oz house-made local free-range beef, bacon, cheddar, house mayo, and peppercorn sauce

To end the meal, we enjoyed a dozen mini donuts, which have a more pronounced cinnamon flavour. We ate it while watching the Whitecaps FC game on my 6-inch phone.

The best part of dining at The WaterShed Grill is the view.
