Great martinis to go with the view! Goat cheesecake to die for. Sit at the bar or in a comfy lounge chair and soak up the atmosphere. Local beer on draft too. Very well priced.

Feeling spontaneous and like only having a light meal, we opted for a few appetizers and some drinks...all very good and the view is incredible!

We visited the Float Lounge, in Black Rock Resort, for dinner one evening. Lovely selection of eats, as well as an impressive drink menu. The menu was reasonably priced and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The views from the lounge are just astonishing.

A nice place to enjoy a drink and enjoy the view. There are good options for light fare food and snacks. Not a lot of drink options on the menu but the bartender could make almost anything.

The chef has no idea how to cook a steak or serve hot fries. Terrible service, the servers just don't care. Not even apologetic, have no idea of the menu or what is included/tastes like.

Great place to have a snack and a beer after a long day with the nature. Lounge with tables facing the ocean makes this place so pleasant and peaceful. Great Service !

A lovely lounge overlooking the wild Pacific Ocean. The servings were large for appies and enough to make a meal. Prices reasonable for a lounge with great ambience. $8 or $10 for good sized glass of wine. Mains $12 to $20. Worth a visit even if not staying at the Black Rock Resort.

Served from the same kitchen as the Fetch Restaurant--nice, relaxed atmosphere, great view of the ocean, and amazing food--one of the best burgers I've had, ever.

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.
