“Don't miss it”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Have been whenever we're in Victoria. Love the atmosphere. Fortunately we seem to get the same server who has been there for over 20 years. She is always cheerful.
The brews are good and so is the food.

“Thank You Day dinner”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

On Canada's Thank you Day, we had dinner at this very nice brewpub near the Victoria waterfront. The halibut and chips (yam chips) were the best we've had in Canada. The breading was light and crisp. The fish was tender and tasty. Our beers, a stout and a brown ale, were very good. The total tab, including a 20% tip because we shared the meal, was under $60. Even though the restaurant doesn't offer a view of the waterfront, it has nice seating in pleasant surroundings. The wait staff was attentive and friendly, the salad and dinner came promptly, and was nicely presented. We wouldn't hesitate to return here for dinner again and would heartily recommend Swan's.

“Great”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Very convenient to have a place in the hotel that not only had great food but the service and atmosphere was wonderful. It was not your usual pub food!

“Local Favorite!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Simple menu of burgers, sandwiches, and pizza. The service was great, and food was very good. The decor is very trendy and attractive. Live music every night starting at 9 p.m. Lots of locals pack this place, it's good eating and great fun!
