As one of the Mark James Group's (MJG) restaurants, the Flying Beaver Bar & Grill features well-executed pub favourites mixed with exotic flavours and an emphasis on West Coast seafood. I like this place for several reasons. First, they offer microbrew beers and delicious food. Second, they have the nice patio view with the panorama of the Georgia Straight, the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island in the West. And last but not least, you can watch the arrival and departure of the Harbour Air seaplanes on the Middle Arm of the Fraser River. They provide blankets for people sitting on the patio, so don't worry even if the weather gets a little chilly. 
Delicious brunch with great views
For our starter, we got a Gluten Free Cobb Salad ($16) which consisted of chopped romain lettuce, grilled chicken, bacon, cherry tomatoes, edamame beans, candied peacans, Danish blue cheese, hard-boiled egg, dried cranberries with ranch dressing. It had a good selection of healthy ingredients and the portion was pretty big too. It was a good shareable size for two of us, and maybe a single person can be full after eating this as well. It didn't taste like a typical Cobb Salad I used to have, but regardless of that I loved their fresh veggies with a nice combination of different sweet and sour flavours.
Poutine with Pulled Pork ($9) consisted of fresh cut Kennecbec potatoes, lots of cheese curds, house made gravy and green onions topped with pulled pork (or bacon depending on your choice). I liked their gravy but one thing I have to mention is their "pulled pork." The pork was not really pulled nor broken into individual pieces. It was a bit tough and not tender enough to be called pulled pork.
But still... I loved that they gave us lots and lots of cheese/cheese curds! 
Pesto Shrimp Pizza ($15) is one of their 12" Stone Oven Pizzas that consisted of shrimp, spinach, red peppers, feta and mozzarella cheese with pesto sauce. This was our favourite dish of the day. It had a good mixture of fresh veggies, seafood and cheese. The pizza dough was thin and crispy which I liked about. I would definitely come back to try their other pizzas.
Overall, we had amazing brunch with nice views on the patio. There are some minor things that can improve.
