First time we've been to this restaurant and just loved everything about it. Nice pub style atmosphere with a view of the float planes coming and going on the riverfront. The service was excellent! We were a bit hesitant as we had read reviews of people not getting great service on a Wednesday (wing night) but it was certainly not our experience. There seemed to be a lot of wait staff to handle all the tables and I didn't notice anyone upset about the service. The place was jam-packed since we arrived at 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday night.
OMG - the chicken wings are the best we've had in our entire life. Worthwhile to go just for them. We ordered ranch dressing on the side (you pay extra for that) as we're used to having a dip sauce. Well once we started our wings, you don't need any extra dipping sauce at all as they're that great. I can't wait to come back here again.
Just as an aside, we were staying at the River Rock casino and took a taxi to this pub and the Garden City Taxi Cab driver said he didn't take credit cards. The next day I phoned the Manager of the taxi co. to complain and he said of course all their cabs took credit cards and he would look into it. He also mentioned the fare starts at $3.60 and when we got in the cab, the meter already said $8. Now we found out that the Flying Beaver has a FREE shuttle bus that will pick you up and then take you home anywhere in Richmond. We came out of the pub on a dark, cold, rainy night and it was absolutely great to have the shuttle bus there, all warmed up and nice cloth seats to take us back to our hotel. Of course the driver gets a big tip for this!!!
