“Great Sushi”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We had the pleasure of dropping in to the Float lounge while staying at the Black Rock Resort this weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the tempura and spicy tuna roll while enjoying our drinks.

“Good food with reasonable prices, AND open late!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I had eaten here recently because I was told it was the only one that opened late (ie. after 9 pm). Upon arrival to the hotel, I was able to find a seat quickly.

I ordered their $15 special of the day - which happened to be an Aussie burger with a beer. I skipped the beer and had something else. The burger itself was really good. The patty wasn't dried out and was infused with some veggie stuff. It also came with both fries and a salad. Both sides were really good.

This lounge seems like a upscale hang-out place for locals but it wasn't that busy. (I did come on a weeknight.) Overall, I was after some good food and the Float lounge delivered without breaking the bank.

“Seriously when will you change ?”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Its been almost a year since I was last at Float and no change.
You can tell management is riding the $$$$martinis as there is no change.
Biggest problem i have -ask me if I want something else. Don't assume ill wave u down to spend my money or i will leave and not come back !
No exciting food
Waitresses are mediocre/unattentive!
*****GO to Hanks Ucluelet these guys are eager to impress they made a great bowl of Mussels in rosemary white wine sauce at my request.
Sometime good food doesn't need a fancy atmosphere!!!

“Great Staff!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stopped in here to catch the hockey game and have a casual meal. The staff were very friendly. They have a huge selection of beers including lots of unique BC options and had a great recommendation from the staff. They have a limited menu so don't expect more than appies or a small selection of meal choices. The house made burger was amazing! If it was during the day the view would have been priceless.

disappointing like the rest of this resort - don't expect any service not even to be asked if you would like a second drink!
