Nice venue for a live performance

We went to the lounge for drinks & appies & to listen to a blues guitarist/singer, Ross Nielsen, from New Brunswick, no less! Who knew? Anyway, the food was right, the music & singing was excellent & we enjoyed our evening very much.

The turkey dinner was small and cold but the vegetables were hot. There was very little gravey and milkly looking Canberry sauce. My partners burger was dry, very little ketchup and it look like they they dumped out a basket of broken small fries. Nice location and got great seats. We had to wait an hour to eat but we... More

I had the burger with prawns on top, it was delicious and the salad was fresh and enjoyable. Nice to see an improvement, we'll be back soon.

Oceanfront dining room with a casual feel. Grab a cold beer, get some good food and watch the sunset from this lovely little lounge.

Visited here a couple of times during our stay at Black Rock Resort. Great view of course, great seafood chowder, generous portions. Nice atmosphere and enjoyed live music one evening. Garlic prawns good and again, generous portion. Calamari was also good. The fireplace here is spectacular! Staff courteous and friendly. Will be back....soon I hope.

I loved my fish and chips at the Float Lounge. The decor of the pub is lovely and the fireplace was a welcome sight on a foggy night.

We had dinner here our second night here at the Black Rock and based in previous reviews, we both opted for the fish and chips. It was a great choice - even tge fries were excellent. For those who enjoy trying new beer, the sampler offer was great: you got to choose three sample size beers from a really long... More
