I was there with part of my networking group for lunch yesterday and Chris from sales guided a tour and tasting for the group. They were blown away by the hospitality of the Spinnakers' staff as well as the beer and food. The Crispy Chicken Sandwich was amazing! So was the Nut Brown Ale, The WIne Barrel Sour and the Peach Hef. Can't wait to go back!

We enjoyed a short stroll along the waterside behind Spinnakers before arriving for our lunch. It was the first time my friend has been to Spinnakers and she enjoyed it immensely. I was at your establishment last year for a early Mother's Day lunch with my son and had a lovely lunch out on the terrace. Glad to see that Spinnakers is up and running after that terrible fire. We had a very enjoyable, relaxing lunch and our food was amazing. Thanks again for a lovely experience.

Don't know our server's name, but she was awesome! Originally from Calgary, has a roommate from Idaho, very upbeat, friendly, made us feel right at home as we celebrate our honeymoon in beautiful Equimalt/Victoria.

Service was very good, we showed up with 5 people instead of 5 and had no problem accommodating the extra person. The upstairs has a very nice view of the harbour but is still under some renovations. The food was good, I had the Kale Cesar and would've appreciated more sauce (it was a little dry) . Overall very nice lunch with friends

Hi: As usual our Pub Group had a very positive assessment of your establishment, the staff and the food/drinks. We liked the table location (lower right) and will certainly return within a year or so. Thanks Hugh Porter

We chose from the Dine Around menus. Neither of us ears meat and one of us has an egg allergy. We didn't have a lot of choice, but that's not surprising. All courses were good - not great but tasty and reasonable value. The place was packed and lively. Service was a bit slow - again, not surprising given how busy the restaurant was. The servers should be able to talk about the wine options a bit more knowledgeably.

We have been coming to Spinnakers for about 5 years and have always enjoyed ourselves. This time however, the food was really not up to the usual standards. Specifically my husband and I both ordered the pumpkin gnocchi, which sounded amazing on the menu but was terrible. The portions were tiny (my daughter's pasta dish off of the kids menu was bigger than both of the adult portions combined). Since it was my husband's birthday we ordered more food so he wouldn't go hungry and by the time it arrived our kids were really done and we're probably interrupting others dinner complaining. On the positive side we spoke to the server about it (who was great overall) and she took one of the dinners off the menu. Still wasn't the experience that we expected from Spinnakers.

High-flying hotel bars in Victoria

High-flying hotel bars in Victoria

Don’t expect to find any imports here: The beer doesn’t travel that far. In fact, it’s brewed right on site. So grab a Lion’s Head Cascadia Dark Ale, take a seat and enjoy the waterfront view. Make sure you’ve built up an appetite, too: The chef here is all about local ingredients, and from the local water shrimp melt to the Cache Creek beef flank steak, the BC flavour is apparent in every bite.

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

Although they only have three burgers on their menu, Victoria’s only gastro brewpub has spent a lot of time perfecting them. Their vegetarian BC Beet & Lentil Burger featuring spicy sprouts, malt vinegar pickled cabbage, and tzatziki rivals their meaty Brewpub Burger. And don’t even get us started on the Braised Pulled Pork Sandwich with Cascadia dark ale BBQ sauce and aioli – we’re drooling just thinking about it! Grab yourself one of their own superb craft beers and just try to decide between the three. We dare you.
