Definitely had a great time...our food and drinks is were really good and our server was amazing. Just seems like the place is a bit dated and could use a little refresher...especially the washrooms.

Great seat, just the one I had hoped for. Nacho's and beer pot cheese were great. Had the halibut and chips, they did not disappoint. Waitress was very nice just would have liked to have ordered drinks when we sat down. We were taking family from out of area and they loved it. Spinnakers is definitely one of our go to restaurants. In house and local beers, in house breads and deserts... we love it.

Spinnakers is an old favourite that we visit perhaps once a year when visiting from Vancouver. We generally get together with local friends to catch up on recent events. The food is of the “comfort” variety — nicely prepared and tasty with few surprises. And the service is friendly and efficient with appropriate suggestions as needed. Best of all, one can choose to have a quiet area where we can talk and relax.

Food always fantastic and something new every time. Beer might just be the best in the best beer town in Canada. Hand pulled cask conditioned Mitchell’s ESB, classic!

pleasant view but noisy, the acoustics are better upstairs. The beer on the menu that I selected was not available and the waitress had to come back to confirm one of the orders otherwise the service was good. As a repeat customer I find the quality of the food is better than average.

One of my friends from Calgary was handicapped. I arranged ahead to ensure room for their equipment. An appropriate table was made available for us which worked very well. The food was very good. Our server was efficient, cheerful, happy, a pleasure to work with. We will certainly come back again.

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.
