“Upscale pub with excellent views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We have been to this pub/restaurant a number of times with groups of people and as a couple, with or without reservations and we have always been very satisfied with service, quality and quantity of food, choice of beers and seasonal options. It can be very crowded and noisy in peak tourist/summer season, so reservations recommended then, but the rest of the time, very accessible without reservations. Great views of the harbour, and along the Westshore walkway, so easily accessible when walking along the harbour. Always enjoy the tacos and poutines, and pizzas.

The restaurant has a lodge feel. We stopped in without reservations and were very lucky to get a table. We really enjoyed our meal.

“Let down at the Spinnaker Pub”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Before we walked to the Spinnaker Pub, we had our hotel (the Delta) phone ahead as my 12-year old son and I wanted to watch a CFL football game on TV while we enjoyed dinner together. We were told that would be no problem. When we arrived at the Pub, we first stopped in their little store to buy some baked goods. I asked if the bill could go onto our restaurant tab, but was told "better to pay now". OK; I paid. We then went to the hostess to get our table to eat dinner and watch the game. The hostess said that the game was only being shown in the pub where my son could not sit (due to his young age), so we were invited to dine in the restaurant No thanks; that's not what we wanted. Headed back out the door and, as we passed the little store, noticed that baked goods were now 50% off. All of 5 minutes had passed since our purchase. I asked if we'd been told that it was "better to pay now" so that we did not get the savings. The simple answer was "No". All the more reason to leave. I told the hostess. I told the Delta Hotel. Now I'm telling all of you. We fared much better at Swans.
