The view is nice and if you don't mind the noise it's fun to watch the float planes come in and out. Unfortunately I found the food and service to be pretty sub standard.
Our poutine was cold - the fact that it was delivered so soon after ordering should have been a tip-off that it had been sitting around. When we told the waitress about it all she did was say "Oh really? - no effort to do anything about it.
We ordered a pitcher of Mojitos which were the worst I have ever had - tasted like it was made with some kind of packaged mix, yuck.
Then we ordered some wings - half plain and half BBQ. I was told we would be charged 50 cents for ordering 2 types of wings. I asked our server if she could waive this on account of the bad poutine and she said "It's not at my discretion."
So we ate our wings - at least they were hot., then decided we'd go spend our money somewhere with decent food and drinks and better service. I got the bill and sure enough there was the 50 cent charge for getting 2 types of wings. I asked our server if I had ordered only BBQ wings, would I be charged 50 cents to put the sauce on them, seeing as all they did was put BBQ sauce on half our plain wings. This was too much for her poor brain to comprehend and all she could spit out was "It's not at my discretion!" Needless to say, the 50 cents came out of her tip.
I wouldn't recommend Flying Otter to anyone - other than the location it has nothing going for it and it seems they are coasting on the fact that it's a nice spot.
