This was a favourite, with a menu that included home made pie, mash and vegetables, sausage and mash, lots of seafood etc. All of our meals were delicious.. The craft beers on offer were great.. the cheesecake was (according to my cheesecake loving husband and son) the best they had ever had. The waitress was really good and even managed... More

We were delighted to get a seat on the mail floor of this busy restaurant. Our drinks were delicious as was our meal. It was so nice to find vegetarian options on the menu. The view of the water was relaxing, although the restaurant was a bit noisy for conversation.

On the recommendation of a friend we walked about 25 minutes along the harbor edge from the Empress Hotel to Spinnakers. It was worth the walk (which was very scenic.) Irish music inside was a bit loud but the sounds that wafted to the outside deck were just the right decibel. The cool harbor breeze was countered by the overhead... More

Just minutes or a very short walk along the sea wall to downtown Victoria's popular inner harbour and attractions, Spinnakers is a great choice for indoor or outdoor dining with stunning views of the harbour! If you are searching for that perfect waterfront dining location offering home cooked meals prepared with fresh quality ingredients that are locally grown, then look... More

My brother lives here and they frequent this establishment. They love it. I had the fish (salmon) & chips which was quite good. The brew pub beer (in house IPA) was tasty with a sweetness that was refreshing. We sat on the deck overlooking the bay. Although a nice evening, it was very cool in the shade which was the... More

We took the water taxi from our hotel to this pub (the taxi let's you off a short walk away) It had good craft beer, better than average food, and a nice view to boot. The staff was as friendly and accommodating as you could as for. Given its popularity, probably best to make a reservation if you want a... More

Loved sitting on the balcony enjoying a nice weather and looking at the ocean. Fish and chips were amazing! The best I ever had.

After reading all the rave reviews I was really looking forward to our dinner here, but I ended up feeling ever so slightly disappointed. Everything tasted fine, but too many things were not quite right. Our starters took ages to arrive, even though we could see them standing on the bar under a lamp waiting to be served. They weren't... More
