Pros: Tried around 10 beers and only didn't like one. Food was excellent along with the service. Even had a nice gift shop. One of the better brewpubs in the. The brewpub is located a little ways from the harbor but is easily accessible from the pedestrian walkway that goes by the water. I recommend making reservations as the place... More

The breakfast was great. The service including check in/out staff was o.k. No one acknowledged our anniversary which is why we were staying there. It was stated when booking the room. Smelly hallway in the separate building, where we stayed. It is just up the street from the pub. Did not feel too safe. Room was o.k. Not what I... More

We were able to get an outside table with a view of the harbour, which was nice. Good variety of craft beers - with option to try a 'flight'. Food was standard fare.....will set you back a few dollars. Service was slow, perhaps understaffed, but we tried to relax and go with the flow.

This brewpub is a fair walk up government street and over the bridge, but here you will find an extensive menu that offers a range of meat/fish/vegetarian dishes! Lots of beers to choose from, great service and a nice view of the lake! Go here for in house brewed beer and decent food!

Took advantage of their whale watching deal, which is excellent value. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. And gluten free was easily accommodated, including cider samples instead of beer. Also, the truffles are delicious.

I have stayed at Spinnakers several times when travelling alone for business, and always had a good experience staying in the Heritage House. On the last trip, I was travelling with a colleague and we decided to book one of the Garden Suites with separate sleeping areas. Just a caution about something that we didn't realize until we checked in... More

We very much enjoyed our room on the ground floor of a character house. It had a beautiful large bathroom in what must have been part of a conservatory which opened out onto a small enclosed sitting area which caught the sunshine. The pub over looked the bay and is a busy popular choice but we enjoyed the atmosphere and... More

First off, the staff are fabulous, awesome ambience! Craft beer is worth the trip alone. Only letdown was the cheese platter $15. bread was stale and portions were minuscule. I think management needs to rethink a few things. Am a fan overall of the pub and will try a full meal soon. Do NOT recommend the cheese platter-very disappointing!

Family had a nice table with a view of the harbour. Had pulled pork, sandwich which was ok but was dry and seemed like it was made yesterday. Wife had Burger which was over cooked. Fries ok but a bit salty for Canada. Service was ok. Place is definitely over rated.
