We enjoyed the breakfasts served at Spinnakers, and had a romantically decorated room in the Guesthouse. If you want to stay in a specific room, be sure to ask them to lock your reservation or you may be reassigned to a different room, which is what happened to us. The room we got was very nice, but another couple had... More

Spinnakers is first and foremost a brewpub/restaurant with a B&B a few steps away in a heritage building. The room was really cute and comfortable with a balcony, steam shower, robes and fireplace, (room #4). Unlike most B&Bs where there's a set menu and you eat whatever the host is making that day; Spinnakers, as I said, is attached to... More

We enjoyed and afternoon of sun and relaxation on the patio Quite a variety of food well prepared and presented Good service despite the long walk for the servers The variety of brew pub beer is exceptional and well crafted I recommend the dark lager which is similar to Guinness

The Okanagan goat cheese dip - truffle scented wild mushroom whip, local root vegetable chips, baguettes was terrific. For the main I Had the "Local water Shrimp melt" a great combination of flavours with the anise taste complementing the shrimp. Unfortunately they were out of my first 2 beer picks. However what I finally got was good. Their pale ale... More

We had the chance to book here January 2014 and stayed in the heritage house and loved it! Stayed in the garden suite this time and liked it but the intermittently scalding water in the shower was a bit of a shock. That aside our breakfast was simply fabulous and the beer and truffle pairing was delish. Turning into a... More

Stopped by for lunch last week on our harbour-front walk. We have eaten here before but this time I was very disappointed. I ordered seafood chowder, which was not only very mediocre but not hot. My companions food was OK but certainly not exceptional - although pleasingly presented. I thought it was all over-priced. I don't think I would bother... More

Anyone who thinks most beer in Canada tastes similar should get to a place like Spinnaker's Brew Pub, where they will be pleasantly surprised. The craft beers here open new horizons. The food is also very good and the service we experienced was the excellent service you usually find in Victoria. We had salads, chowders and burgers which were all... More

This is an absolutely fabulous location with excellent craft beers and a very good wine list. Whenever I have out of town guests, we always include a meal at Spinnakers. We really enjoy the beer flights - what fun! Some of the menu items are really outstanding - like the Hazelnut Pate, the Moules Frites, and the BC Beet &... More

I have always loved Spinnakers....the food options for a vegetarian, the beer, and the view. Going there for dinner and staying in a Heritage suite for Valentine's Day was the best decision!! Above all else, the service we received from the front desk and the two different servers we had was above par. As always, the food and beer were... More

After some extensive research to find the best couple get-away to get a break from the kids, we chose to stay in town and try the heritage guesthouse at Spinnakers. Already fans of the restaurant and pub, we were very happy with our stay in the cozy room and the 'cozy up for winter' package they were offering. The room... More
