Watching the manager of the Floathouse 'conduct' patrons to tables was worth the visit in itself! He has a wonderful personality. And the food was great & well priced - we really enjoyed eating on this busy boat, obviously a real favourite with "the locals"

We found this place on a Wednesday night when a Lot of other places were closed. We weren't disappointed . We sat outside on the deck right by the water . The waitress's were very attentive. The food was good and meal and drinks for four was $62

A nice place to eat. The food was excellent. It is an open air dining facility and at night it can get chilly sitting by the water so take a sweater. A very different ding experience.

What a wonderful experience, as soon as you enter this floating restaurant. Situated in the small harbour marina, the staff are cool as hell, and had wonderful senses of humor! We arrived at low tide, so the walk down the gangway was very steep. I asked the hostess if they offered help getting out of there after my wife and... More

We had the chicken&ribs which was amazing! Very soft and tender. The garlic bread is very good. We also had the pulled pork sandwich which was good too. The spot has an amazing view on the harbour - very enjoyable. Unfortunately the service did not exceed to its best. We had to wait inside and get started there to be... More

We were looking for a place to eat dinner where we can get seafood. We found the FloatingHouse and in the end only one of us at fish and the rest sticked to burgers and ribs which where delicious!

Local spot down on the pier. Far from fine cuisine but nice place for a pit stop and a beer after a long day. You can watch the fisherman bring their catch in.

A bit tucked away from the main road, but worth the visit. The food was really good. Basking in the sun while the food is being prepared. The lemon pepper chicken and baby ribs are delicious!

We were very disappointed with this restaurant, and cannot understand how it gets good reviews. Unfortunately we didn't see this review from Angelina that sums up our experience, until after we left and I was looking on-line to see where we went wrong: "It's summer 2015. The height of tourist season on Vancouver Island. You arrive at a recommended restaurant... More

Went here because it was a float house.!! Who doesn't want to eat on the water . Staff were very friendly . Food was awesome. All our dishes were completely finished off. Ribs were cooked to perfection and I loved there Caesar salad. A must for a Ucluelet meal out
