Service had always been an issue at spins. We live close so it is easy to walk there. However we finally had enough of the extremely poor service and will no longer be patrons at this establishment. The final straw was waiting over 20 minutes...More

Very uneven experience. 3 of the party got hamburgers-one felt the burger was tasteless and dry, one said "meh", and one thought it was good. Beer selection was ok. Waitstaff seemed a little overwhelmed and unorganized. Good location if you want to walk along the...More

Four for bevy’s and Appie’s. Found a quiet table with a wonderful view. Excellent service, good beers and good food. Grins all around.

Enjoyed spicy jambalaya with a view over the water. Upper floor is like a sports bar. Nice atmosphere with a vibrant crowd on a Friday night. Gluten free menu available. Service was excellent. Cam buy beer mugs or in-house chocolate treats on way out.

We loved Spinnakers food! It was delicious and we ate here a lot, especially breakfast since we were staying at their Heritage B&B. The wait staff are wonderful and accommodating and the food is well presented and prepared.

We have been eating here for over 20 years. Solid tasty food and good beer. Last night was a complete disappointment though. Especially since it was my partner's birthday. Called ahead but couldn't make a table reservation for 8pm? So we showed up anyway but...More

Came here with some friends and had great beer, food and service. It overlooks the ocean and you can see the mountains, really nice place.

Service was friendly. We were pleasantly surprised to have happy hour drinks and appetizers while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. We didn’t enjoy the cider flight but the boys enjoyed their beers and I enjoyed my wine. The truffles at...More

Very nice restaurant with great meal selection as well as locally-brewed beers. Best location is upstairs with harbour views. Monday nights usually has a local group playing Irish music.
