The food selection was excellent. An wonderful meal can be created from two appies: calamari (the best I have tasted) and Long Ribs with salad.

The view was beautiful, but if a good view is what you want, take a walk on the Wild Pacific trail. I had the "award winning" seafood soup in a cream-based broth. The broth was a sticky, overly thick sauce. The mussels and shrimp were fine, but all the other seafood (scallops and fish) were overcooked and not quite fresh.... More

The bar is a great place to "get it all".... drinks, seafood dinner, rockin' 70's tunes, and a fantastic overlook of the Pacific! Did I mention the awesome fireplace and "ceiling wave"? A must stop on your visit.

I hesitated 3 days before writing this because I always like to start with all the positives. The location is the only one, and it is insanely beautiful.

We went to the Float Lounge twice over the course of a family wedding weekend. Both times, service was slow. I would contribute this to management as they did not staff according to the events of the weekend. There was a large car convention at the hotel, as well as a wedding. The wait staff were friendly and did the... More

For the price and the fact the menu is served in the Fetch restuarant at lunchtime expected that the fish would have crispy batter and the chips would be hand cut not frozen ones.
