We went to this restaurant for the very first time during Dine Out Vancouver. It was a little confusing at first because even though we had a reservation, you have to seat yourself by finding the table with your name on it, There is a big chalkboard at the entrance that explains their seating policy and what to do and...

We went to Van Dusen Gardens for the Festival of Lights & had a 7:30 reservation at The Shaughnessy Restaurant after. We miscalculated the time (and weather) and were done by shortly after 6:00. So rather than wait, we called The Flying Beaver to see if there was any chance we could get in. They said they were booked but... More

Went for lunch; good service and food was good although I've had better halibut & chips and I was surprised to be charged over $3 for a cup of coffee. Have rated it "very good" as my two guests said their meal was excellent. Place was very busy. It's a great place to take out of town guests because of... More

Great restaurant right on the water. During the daylight hours float planes take off, land and dock right at the small water terminal attached to the restaurant. Beautiful sunsets can be seen as well. Service was excellent. Sunday nights there is a live DJ after 9. A must place to eat if you love a great atmosphere, cool location and... More

Best spot to view floatplane activity in Vancouver. If you're transiting to Vancouver Island then go by floatplane and you get to have a drink while you wait as the bar is right next to the Harbour Air check in. Food choice is standard Canadian ie everything comes in a bun with loads of fries, portions are huge but the... More

Take my advise, don't waste your time visiting this place.. Service was absolutely awful, and even after complaining to the so-called manager, who literally laughed in our face, we just got up and left.

If you like to watch aviation (Float planes) then this is the spot for you. The apps are great as well as the cold beer. Float planes depart it seemed like every 6-9 mins. Also, had the Beef Dip and it was very good. But my favorite was the potato skins and bacon.

Good food, good beer, good service, very loud if you are trying to visit. Fun atmosphere, a great place for a younger crowd. Shuttle back to the area hotels. Lots of taxi's coming or going so is easy to leave when you want. Right on the water across the street from the south terminal of YVR. Prices OK for Vancouver.

The place is always packed - the food must be good! Great appetizers and burgers. Be prepared to commandeer a table because it is seat yourself. It is worth the effort. And while you are there take a walk outside to watch the float planes being moved across the road.
