We met our friends this side of the Narrows Bridge and traveled together to Purdy for breakfast at The Floatation Device Pub & Grill. thefloatationdevice.com/
“The Float” as it’s called is a sports bar, but more importantly it’s a football bar. There are life-sized statues out front of a troll and a bear. The troll wears a Seahawks outfit. The pub is located just west of the WestWynd Motel and yards away from Burley Lagoon.
It was a little cool when we arrived at 8:45. I was surprised when Peg ordered pancakes. I made pancakes last week for her, and she was ready for more. She likes them with butter and jam. Bacon came with her order. She gave me a slice and we shared an order of hash browns, which were delivered perfectly cooked (dark brown and crispy).
I ordered the Captain’s Waffle with butter and syrup. Since Peg had bacon with her pancakes, I ordered the sausages with my waffle. This was a mistake. I will learn from my error. Next time I will order the waffle with sausages, which I will share with Peg and an extra order (2 links) just for me. THEY WERE DELICIOUS!!!! They were cooked perfectly as was the bacon, the waffle, and the pancakes.
There are numerous video screens, football images, other sports images, and helmets from each of the NFL teams. The staff is friendly, and service is quick, by the time we left the restaurant was just the right temperature.
