A lovely dinner on the patio overlooking a park and the water. (It certainly helps that it was a beautiful sunny day!) Food was very tasty. Wait time for our meal was good, not overly long. Beer was great. Service was friendly and prompt. I'd go back next time I'm in Victoria.

We all quite enjoyed the varied selection of brews and selected several. I quite enjoyed the Scottish Ale and the boys preferred hoppier blends like the Juice Monkey and the Jolly Hopper. My wife and I tried the ale battered halibut & chips, while the boys tried the ale battered salmon & chips and the poutine and one of the... More

What a sin that service is so poor as the view is very nice and food is ok pub food. We came in and waited for 1/2 hour and honestly nobody even acknowledged we were even there. No menu, no drinks, nothing not even a nod from the multiple wait staff that walked by. I must admit they are consistent... More

my guess is the place was at about 60% capacity. It don't believe it should take 20 minutes to get any service let alone get a beer at a tap house. Just as slow when we wanted to pay up and be on our way. If you go allow lots of time, the crew seems to want to stand around... More

Wonderful views over Victoria harbour, and wonderful smells from the onsite brewery. The lunch selection is interesting and very eclectic - plenty of farm-to-table entries featuring local farms, cheese makers and other suppliers. The beer and cheese pot appetizer was unexpectedly good. Excellent service - attentive and professional. Great value for the money, and a large selection of their in-house... More

Arrived at 1530, parking lot and tables half full at best and was told they had too many reservations to seat my party of 3 (2 adults and a 11 year old). I asked to sit on the patio but they refused me, said it was too breeze, on a 15C day, and our son wasn't old enough for us... More

My wife and I met some friends at Spinnakers and enjoyed our visit. The waitress was excellent and made suggestions for lunch and we were very pleased with our lunches. The house Ale was great and I also had a cappuccino and dessert to finish things off. The view and atmosphere was awesome and we thanked our friends for recommending... More

As this was a second choice (Il Terrazzo was fully booked) we just bumped in and got a nice window-side table. The food is always good and often something new. We come here for years and are rarely disapointed.

The location is great, along the water and is one of the nicest patios. The food however is generally not anything special. My pizza was over baked and dry. My girlfriend's hamburger bun was dry and hard. The French fries were good though, and do was the cheesecake. The beer is excellent and they have a good selection.
