We are so obsessed with the Flying Beaver after our first visit!! We are literally already trying to plan a family vacation back out West just to visit there again. This was the first place we went after getting off our flight in Vancouver and it absolutely set the tone for the rest of our trip. We sat down and... More

I go here for social gatherings and for casual lunch meetings. The staff are friendly and efficient, the menu varied and the views of the river excellent. Sea planes are taking of and landing very regularly so lots to see.

I can order anything on their menu and it is fantastic! Amazing atmosphere watching float planes take-off and land. Outdoor enclosed patio for those wanting a different feel. Nice relaxing decor.

This is a pub/restaurant that is one of a kind, from the name to the location. There are not many places that are adjoined to a Float plane terminal. Food and service is good, the environment and ambiance makes it a great place. It's that "being at the airport" feeling that makes the food taste better, the drinks more enjoyable,... More

Went here on a Friday evening and the place was packed. My friend and I found a small area attached to the bar, which was good enough for us. The food was okay if a bit greasy. The beer was nice. I like that they have a free shuttle service to downtown Vancouver for those who are too drunk to... More
