Flying Beaver

I know some of my friends like coming to the Flying Beaver to grab a beer at night and relax by the lovely view of the water. The pub is located off of the Vancouver International airport at 4760 Inglis Drive. You can check in for your seaplane to the island and have a meal at the bar before you leave. Michael and I often go to Flying Beaver when we don't know where else to go.

It's a typical bar but their menu is rather more fancy than what most would be used to. I love the interior of the bar because it is all wooden and has snowshoes and various other Canadian pride items displayed, which I think is a little witty and fun.

Caesar salad and garlic bread

I was originally going to get a sandwich today but I quickly changed my mind when our waitress told us about the specials. How could I  resist their specials menu's mac and cheese? The dish arrived served with little steak bites with caesar salad and garlic bread on the side ($13.95).

Mac & cheese

The mac and cheese was actually rather light even though it was oozing with cheese everywhere, maybe because the cheese sauce was runny instead of thick and heavy. The steak wasn't too tough but was a little chewy. I would say it was pretty good. The caesar salad tasted classic with Parmesan shavings on top, but the garlic bread didn't taste very garlicy. I did enjoy dipping my bread in the mac and cheese sauce though.

Prime rib with scalloped potatoes and asparagus

Michael had the prime rib with scalloped potatoes and asparagus. He thought the meat was a little tough, but for its low ($15.95) price, it had a ton of flavour and was worth every penny. Michael especially liked the scalloped potatoes, he said they were cooked with just enough crunch and were sliced thin enough to make every bite delicious.

Flying Beaver is fun place to eat at and we think that its a great place for casual dinners for the days where you have no clue where to go for dinner.
