Good food and drink

Enjoyed dinner here with good food and service, all the more surprising since they had just done an emergency move from their normal location to a temporary location due to a fire. Good menu with lots of variety and a good selection of local and regional craft brews. Definitely worth a visit... read more

We went to the Spitfire's new temporary location for lunch. Not the same atmosphere as the Water Street location but at least this is not for long. We have gone to the Spitfire since it opened and it seems that the food has gone from being extremely good to perhaps a bit ordinary. We had smoked salmon salad and fish... More

I had read the reviews that were good, but I had seen that there had been a fire in mid-July, so I called their number and they said they were in a temporary location downtown, in a restaurant that had gone out. Indoor and outdoor seating. I took a picture of the lobster ravioli and the bar. My husband had... More

The food and the service has always been very good and we were not disappointed this visit. The place was crowed as it was warm outside but we were served quick and the atmosphere is great.

In Windsor for the weekend, and decided on the Spitfire , after checking Trip advisor and their own website. Apparently if you choose to sit on the patio, you are offered a limited menu, not the one posted online. I ordered nachos, and the 2 others with me ordered wraps / salads. They brought me the wrong thing ( kitchen... More

Been to this place a few times over the past couple years. Pretty good English/Irish style pub. Great food. Good service. If you're a Guinness fan, you won't be disappointed with it here.

Charming pub that offers a vast selection of drafts on tap, plus an extensive menu to compliment the tap. Plus daily specials that will make your mouth water. Great atmosphere!

The food is great, a little on the expensive side but great! The atmosphere is great too! They have nightly specials, brunch on Sunday, a patio in the summer.

We went for an evening of music and food. One fish and chips and one grilled chicken. The fish was very good but chips were a let down. Dark and over cooked again! We asked that they would not be over cooked but when they arrived dark we were toldit is all about the oil they are cooked in. Well... More
