If you have time between flights this is a great place to pass it. The friendly bar with a view, open deck, near the south terminal of Vancouver airport is a hot spot with good food and drinks. Sea planes land and start from and to nearby destinations, and there is a shuttle bus to Vancouver International airport for passengers.... More

First time at this restaurant was four days ago and loved it. I had the coconut shrimp and yam fries and both were excellent. I washed it down with a cranberry & soda and before my glass was empty, the server came to ask me if I wanted a refil and that it would cost only $1 so I said... More

The Flying Beaver is a pretty cool spot for lunch or dinner. Been here about 10 times and always enjoyed it. Food is good, not very exotic, but good portions and well priced. I have no particular favorite but my buddy swears the Salmon Burger is the best. Beer is good. View is great - just grab a window seat... More

Located on water near the airport, we enjoyed watching the water planes land & take off. It was mid-afternoon on a weekday and the place was pretty full. Most people were having drinks and bar food. We ordered from the menu. I had a daily special of grilled swordfish with rice/lentils and green beans. My meal was very good. My... More

This pub is on the Fraser River adjacent to Vancouver International Airport. The food is basic. Good burgers, etc. But the views of the floatplane activity are certainly unique. Great place to wait for a flight and have a bite to eat.

Dropped our daughter off at the airport on her trip to India and decided to grab a burger for lunch. Everything on the burger was extra so an $11 burger with added bacon and cheese cost $15 but the clincher for me was the orange juice. It tasted like tang. Crappy watered down bar juice. With tip the meal of... More

We are from the interior and took our UK family there for dinner while waiting for a flight out of YVR. We really enjoyed it.The F.Beaver's own website has some pretty negative comments, but I don't know what really upset those contributors. This is a sports bar with a great view of the seaplane operations and a spectacular setting for... More
