We stopped here for a beer and mussels on our way back from walking to the end of the west harbor path. It was a clear, crisp November day and we sat outside on the covered deck. The beer hit the spot and the mussels were amazing.

We went there to introduce visiting guests. On a Wednesday night, not too busy and we were seated with a view but on a very crowded area and a bad table that we had to squeeze into. Our waiter Wayne was a sweetheart, friendly and certainly conscientious. I have allergies and he was very quick to point out what I... More

Ate here with some friends, and although the pub was busy, the helpful staff managed to squeeze us in! Beer menu is varied and has some interesting favours on offer. The food menu is equally varied. The Pulled Pork Nachos were very good, and the fish and chips was nice - not the best I have had, but pretty good.... More

I am always disappointed after dining here. I usually get the shrimp toast, but, they were out of shrimp! The side salad is so disappointing- a bunch of limp greens, nothing else in the "salad" and the most boring, tasteless salad dressing I've ever tasted! Very expensive for what they give you......

I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our menu. I will discuss your comments with our Chef to see about making some changes to our green salad. We are extremely committed to the local food of our region and surrounding waters, which does come at a higher cost to both us and our valued patrons. I do... More

I had their Apple Brie croissant sandwich at the airport, it had perfect amounts of sauce and a TON of Brie. They are not skimpy on the filling. It made me sad that I didn't try the real restaurant in Victoria.

A wonderful menu of mostly Island produced food. Loved the tasty seafood chowder! I listened to the server and tried a seafood entree that was amazing.

My husband and I arrived in Victoria August 3, 2015 after a tortuous Victoria Clipper experience, (weather-related, not the Clipper's fault). Needless to say, we needed to get out and walk.

Along the sea path from Esquimalt to Victoria, you must walk past spinnakers. It is a good restaurant with great beers. I try a new beer with each meal I eat here. I enjoy the pub classics. The waiters know their beers, so don't be afraid to ask.
