Description: Come and enjoy a great meal at the newly renovated Floating restaurant located at Brown's Bay Resort. Comfy booths and pine walls give the Restaurant a very friendly and cozy feel. The views are amazing! You are ON the water and look out over the busy waterway to Alaska. Cruise ships and wild life are a frequent occurrence, so don't forget to bring your camera, you might just see a pod of orca's swim by. New Chef Paul and his crew serve a versatile menu with lots of local specialities like our famous All You Can Eat Crab night every Friday and Saturday night. Have some fish and chips with local coat Halibut or bite into a juicy homemade burger. The Restaurant is fully licensed and has a wonderful outside patio to enjoy the beautiful views even more.

First thing I saw was a tankful of live Dungeness crabs and I was stoked. We had driven on the kilometers long dirt road off the highway. Once there, Brown's Bay is beautiful and there were circling eagles and the prospect of a beautiful sunset. I was a little shocked to discover that the all you can eat meal was... More

My friends, husband and I had a wonderful time on this floating restaurant. We each ordered "all you can eat crab" and it was wonderful. The service was great, and crabs came hot and quick. I was a little disappointed when I was told that there wasn't any desserts but that was soon remedies when I found out they had... More

We went for the all-you-can-eat crab with a friend from out of province. The crab was good - but the service was absolutely terrible. The waitress seemed to be going out of her way to ignore us, took forever to get a 2nd crab ordered, then it took forever to arrive (the place was NOT busy). Had to ask for... More

We pigged out on the crab dinner off the regular menu. (We didn't go on the all you can eat nite). We loved it and loved the view. We stayed overnite in the adjacent RV park so the walk to dinner on the harbour was a treat.

Great value for $45. My husband managed to eat three crab and they were cooked to perfection. The special comes with an assortment of side dishes to choose from. Altough it is a bit out of town it is well worth the drive. The scenery is amazing as it is right on the ocean. We will defeinitely return for lunch... More

Located at the end of a gravel road on the beautiful Pacific waters of Brown's Bay and flanked by majestic wooded mountains, the Narrows Floating Restaurant offers very good food for reasonable prices. My husband and I stopped there for lunch and were greeted by a red haired server with the friendliest smile standing with the chef in a gleaming... More

Five of us staying at the adjacent resort decided to try the "all you can eat crab" dinner on a Friday evening. We were disappointed in all aspects of the experience. In previous years, this was a great little restaurant in one of my favorite island locations, but alas, that is no longer the case. At $34 per person, our... More

We have lived in the area for years but had not been to the restuarant since the old owners. We had remember the best fish & chips and were so excited to take our kids there after a week long camping trip up north. The fish & chips we order looked like it came from a frozen highliner box in... More

I completely agree with the previous post from Cathy C. While the food was good, the service was the worst I have ever had, anywhere in the world. So much so that the entire dining room was discussing the bad service at normal volume, while the servers went in and out of the room. We were served crab without any... More
