Service was great. Very friendly. Food was good and served quickly. Would go there again. Midweek was quiet so no reservation needed.

Float gets most things right except the food. The charcuterie was uninspired (Breton crackers?) and the fish and chips were pretty pedestrian. However, the drinks (Red Tide!) were pretty tasty, and the views were terrific. Pop by for a drink or two, but have dinner elsewhere.

The Float lounge is an amazing space with friendly staff and beautiful view. Food is lack luster! I have been twice and the first time we had to send back our Halibut twice. Went there this weekend and the food has not improved at all. Its too bad as this is a great room and I will frequent it more... More

If you are not in a rush at all - give it a try. Not that I was in any particular rush but the service was extremely slow/poor for average good. Great view though.

We had dinner at the Float Lounge as part of our stay at the Black Rock Resort. We ordered some drinks and entrées. The sinks came out quite slowly and the entrée​s were even slower. It was over 45 minutes for our food to arrive. My partner's steak was overdone. My salmon was fine but rather run of the mill.... More

The lounge has comfortable chairs which view the ocean or a large gas fireplace. The menu is extensive and a bit different to the Fetch and more low key. We had a... More

We were seated promptly and received timely, friendly service. I had the special, fish tacos with fries. Delicious! Not a huge serving, but sufficient. The view is simply outstanding - an expansive ocean view. Since it is a bar and lounge, though, it's not all that well set up for dining - our table was cramped for three of us... More

This review is for the poor quality of customer service in the lounge area. My wife and I visited the Black Rock for a drink and light meal in the lounge. The server forgot our requests for water. Never returned to the table to ask how the meals were. There was menu's handed out with no menu cards inside folder.... More
