Stopped in for a beer a couple days ago during the storm. The waves crashing on the rocks was so hypnotizing. The service was very good, friendly waitress - even brought me a beer sample with out me asking for it. It is a spacious bar with very comfy seats. Also very quiet. Perfect for couples. Perfect place to stop... More

Lovely burning gas fire to keep you warm. Impressive views of the ocean all around where we watched the storm roll in. We also spotted a sea otter! That aside, it was a very cosy environment, the burgers were nice and with a glass of cider what more could you want. The staff were friendly too.

I know that there have been mixed reviews. Our B&B host warned us that it can be hit or miss. On our night, it was a hit. The views are always amazing. Our food was top notch and the service was as well. Perhaps there is more of a focus now on service. I would totally recommend the lounge for... More

Very good value food and drink with great views over the Ocean. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Be warned they get very busy from about 6.30 and it is not possible to make reservations.

I had the chicken burger, it was decent pub fare. They were playing the Jays game so a plus for them. The negatives all came from the staff. The waitress was rude and condescending, and made for a very disappointing evening.

We decided to try the Float Lounge because of the great ocean views and the seafood in the Seaside Bowl, which is not on the menu at Fetch, the neighbouring restaurant. Float is a lounge, but dinner did not disappoint! The bowl is loaded with fresh local seafood and it's priced reasonably. Prawns, scallops, rock fish, mussels...all in a generous... More

We really enjoyed lounging around here. The food is excellent! You are seated on a first-come-first-served basis, so make sure you don't wait until you are too hungry to show up!
