Good food but there was quite a long wait to get in. There was a patio but it was a very cool evening and we wanted to eat indoors. Come early!

Visited on first night in Ucluelet. We were only one's there. Menu is a bit limited but what we tried was good. The wait staff were VERY friendly and accommodating . Nice night out.

Floathouse is small so be prepared for a wait it offers inside or outside tables on a quirky boat. Portions are generous and we shared tacos to start and a superb rack of ribs which were juicy and delicious. The menu is short and the drinks menu is shorter! Great value food and tasty too!

We had dinner here and we only had enough room for an appetizer each, I had blackened shrimp and they were very good and my wife had a bowl of seafood chowder which was also very good. Worth a visit.

We ate here last night and had an excellent meal. It is a busy restaurant so I suggest you go earlier or later for dinner. The ribs were awesome; fish and chips really great; salads were freshly made. We were told everything is homemade - no store bought anything.

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at the Floathouse this August 2016! They were very busy, and you could tell it was a great place by all the people there! Great atmosphere, and our motel was not even a block away!

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
