“3 Times in 2 Days!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

If you love beer (which we do!) then this is the place for you! We not only found it fun, & entertaining, but it was by far the best bang for your buck! The servers were great.. walked us through the beers, & Victoria by telling us other fun things to try. TRY the flight of four. Four decent sized samples for $5! You cant go wrong! Their seafood chowder was amazing.. along with their pizza, and poutine! We wish there is a Spinnackers closer to home!

Also the chocolates are heavenly! Cant wait to come back!

“Beerific!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We heard about this gastromic restaurant/pub on an open air bus tour of the city. We were fortunate the weather was great & the food, service & views were amazing from this original micro brew pub. Another must when you visit Victoria. If you're a beer nut, you will love their beer analysis chart which changes weekly. Its a good thing the bus tour d/o & p/u cause you will not want to leave this scenic pub/restaurant.

“Good Food; Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

I quite frequently visit Spinnakers, mostly for lunch and almost invariably to the restaurant portion, and I have never been disappointed. The menu varies considerably from the usual sandwiches/burgers type of fare and often features locally grown/harvested products. The view of the harbour is spectacular, although the sun beating through the windows can be a bit warm at times. Service is always good.

“FABULOUS VIEW - ON THE WATER - UPSCALE PUB”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Good service, excellent decor, right on the water. The food wasn't brilliant but if you stick with more simple items you can't go wrong.
