This popular and scenic bar and grill is perched on pilings over the Fraser River, originally as a place to get a bite while waiting for seaplane flights to points more remote. It has since been commandeered by boisterous post-shift airport employees as a convenient watering hole-warning: it can be loud later in the evening. Food runs the gamut of Canadian pub classics; nothing is too... more

Located beneath the flyway of Vancouver International, the Beaver offers nonflyers great views of incoming jets, along with views of mountains, bush planes, and river craft -- and truly fine brewpub beer.

I love the Flying Beaver! Food is your regular pub fare, not bad at all, drink specials are pretty standard as well, what makes this place stand out is the location with a wonderful view, and service is amazing, even when it's super busy, which is often.
Personally I think it is a great place to go for a birthday, they have a shuttle service within 10 km or so for patrons, and it's way more fun... more

I've been to the Flying Beaver on many occasions. The food is always great, staff is super friendly and if you come by on a friday night DJ Alibaba is spinning music VJ Style (the TV's are all showing the video's which go along with the music). Great opportunity for dancing without the sleazy meat-market vibe of a downtown nightclub!

I love how this restaurant/bar oversees the river. It is a great place to hang out with friends, grab a drink, and watch the hockey game. The lodge-like atmosphere in the bar makes everyone feel close (or maybe it was the drinks or the closeness of the tables). Regardless, the ambience was great! They also have a live DJ that plays around 9:30pm.

My favourite spot in Richmond year-round.

In the summer, I usually hang out on the covered patio to watch the sunset and seaplanes. The view is fantastic when you're watching the planes take off.

During the fall it's best to sit on the couch near the fireplace. Beers are always on special and this bar is a great spot to wind down after a long day.

They have what they call a Frequent Beaver card. After 10 meals you get one free.

Food was OK but underwhelming but customer service was atrocious on my first and only visit. I will not return because of it.

The meat on my burger was tasty but the toppings and side of fries made the whole dish a skippable experience.

No stars for the poor customer service, one star because the beef tasted like beef.

Perfect place to refresh after a long flight. The food was delicious and the beer cold. Being from the southern U.S. I'm not an expert on poutine, but I thoroughly enjoyed it at the Flying Beaver. My husband thought their fish and chips were some of the best that we had during our time in the northwest. Service was prompt and friendly and the view was pretty nifty.

Decent place to get a burger and yam fries while you're waiting for a plane to the island. The calamari is good. All the better if you're expecting to be eating c@!%!y airport food before a turbulent flight. I'll definitely go back the next time I have a flight. I might even go back just for the view. The DJ volume can get very loud though which puts a damper on intimate conversations.

One of the best bars in GV. Friendly service, great daily food features and the best ambiance. Best wings. Only drawback is that everyone knows how good this place is, so sometimes it can be a fight for a seat, or you get lurkers that hang out by your table and watch anyone whose drink is getting a bit low. They are trying to swoop your table when you leave!

Great pub with good food and awesome view
March 03, 2014

A very good local pub with better than average food, friendly service and great view of Fraser River and the local float plane operation. It can be very very busy between noon and 1300 so come early or after 1300 to avoid line ups

Flying Beaver
March 03, 2014

Expensive pub view with a great view. 2 burgers with coffee about $40.00 The food is good and there are lots of choices on the menu. The seats by the windows are almost always taken, but there are lots of spaces in the heated, enclosed out door areas

This is where we bring our visitors
March 03, 2014

The Flying Beaver is built on pilings over the Fraser River, right next to the "general aviation" (= private planes) part of Vancouver Airport. The restaurant shares its building with a seaplane base. The terrace is surrounded by glass, and roofed, and heated, so it's "all-weather".
The food is pretty good, and not very expensive. But the _real_ attraction is... more

This River side Bar & Grill really has it all. If you are a traveller or you live right here in Richmond, BC prepare to set your taste buds on fire. The poutine is by far my personal favorite,with decadently piled hunks of cheese and the best gravy dripped down onto superb french fries. In fact every item packs its... more

Always great

The quality of the meals at the beaver are always consistent. I have been going for 8 years now and will continue. Watching the floatplanes come and go along with the new native art has mad the place inviting.Thanks to Scotty to a job well done!

Great place to kick back
January 07, 2014

Great atmosphere over the water with good food to match. One of Richmond most popular places to relax with friends. Atmosphere promotes sportfishing/hunting/outdoor lodges because it is attached to a float plane hub servicing these lodges. Food is reasonably priced and good quality. Great example of all Canadiana

We went out for lunch with 3 friends. This restaurant/pub is located in the South terminal area of the Vancouver Int’l Airport. The south terminal serves as a regional hub for the smaller commuter routes including float planes and helicopters. This particular eatery shares the same building as Harbour Air – float plane operator and has great views of the... more

Funky Place by the Water
December 28, 2013

The Flying Beaver Bar & Grill is a great place to go and eat when visiting Vancouver via float plane or the smaller planes that connect to Vancouver.
The restaurant is located at the South Terminal which is 15 min shuttle ride from Vancouver International Airport.
This is more of a pub style restaurant and you will see people in... more

Do you love food & airplanes
November 06, 2013

No, it is not an airport eating spot. The Beaver is a seaplane station the serves great pub food. Go there for Burgers and other bar food delicacies
The side show is a vision of the past where passenger come and go from the nearby docks on venerable float planes.

A gem
November 02, 2013

Huge portions, fairly priced, brilliant service. What more can I say.
This restaurant leans more towards a bar rather than a restaurant. If you're bringing anyone under-age, don't expect to sit anywhere near the center of the restaurant, but rather near the entrance or the balcony with roof (great views!)
This place is a gem that no one really knows... more

Nice location right on an arm of the Fraser river. No local craft beers on tap (4 Ok Spring, 2 Unibroue) Bottled beer selection is okay; just one IPA but glad to see it was Acme from North Coast Brewing.
Not many seats at the bar. Popular lively spot for 40+ age group. Decent wine list with about 6 whites and 6 reds by the glass. Can get pretty crowded and noisy. Enclosed deck with seating.... more

Nice fishing/hunting lodge atmosphere right on the Fraser River at Vancouver Int'l's south terminal.
This place is good, but can get busy in the evening. The patio fills up fast and seating is limited. Service is good; the staff are friendly, but they seem ed to be a bit understaffed on a busy night.
Beer selection is okay. Standard bottled imports: Stella, Guinnes, Grolsch, etc. and local... more

This is a really neat little pub. It sits right at the Vancouver aiport on the water. They have seaplanes that are taking off and landing right on the water in front of you. Thats where the name flying beaver comes from. Beaver is a plane type. The food is traditional pub food with a wide selection of beers on hand! highly recommended!

Located on the Fraser River, this pub features a great outdoor deck and a comfy interior patterned after a coastal fishing cottage. Its most prominent feature, however, is its proximity to an air terminal where seaplanes land on the water. Great beer is a standard, and regional microbrews are conveniently on tap. Cocktails, bottled beers, hard cider and a few wines can also be had. Plus, the... more
