Great food and relaxing atmosphere

We had dinner here twice because of the relaxed atmosphere, good food and friendly service. We sat inside as it was a bit chilly but outside on the terrace you have a nice view on the boats.

Great service, tasty food, comfy couches and spectacular views of the crashing waves. They always seem to have some pretty great drink specials, on Thursdays they have live music and one time we even saw whales right outside in the inlet! All in all this is a pretty special place to kick back, relax and enjoy a drink or two.

This place gets busy at night. The girls have to sit people down take orders and make the drinks themselves. I seen two different waitresses tell a couple to wait for the same table and to sit down once the guests get up. We ordered our food and nobody came to ask how it was or ask if we wanted... More

We ordered the special which was smoked beef sandwich and smoked seafood chowder. Sandwich was good, however the chowder was terrible. I should have sent it back the minute it arrived to our table, because it looked like potato salad. Very dry, big pieces of potatoes, little seafood. Potatoes were very hard, not sure if it was undercooked or it... More

We only had takeout from the Float lounge but was very happy with the shellfish bucket we had. The garlic butter sauce was delicious and the amount of shellfish was very good for the price. Will definitely be getting it again next time!

We stayed across town, but a few of the locals recommended we check this place out. My husband and I came for supper one evening, and could not believe the view. It was absolutely amazing to look out over the ocean from atop the rocks while we ate. The food was good, and I found there were still plenty of... More

First off, this place has great views o the cost line, so if you just want a quick drink with a nice view, this would be good. But for a meal, try somewhere else. Food was just average, especially for the price paid. Beers are local brews, so that is nice. The "Cracken" meal is a sandwich with two fried... More
