The venue was very loud. The restaurant is fully shaded in the evening, making the patio cold. Good food, but average to poor service took away from the experience. Would not choose this restaurant for another family dinner.

We stayed two nights at Spinnakers which could only be described as a fantastic experience. The accommodation is located alongside a walking track that leads into downtown Victoria approximately 1km easy walk away. After spending a day in Victoria doing what tourists do we strolled back along the path around the edge of the harbour and spent a pleasant time...

Came here for dinner with family. Was very loud and busy to begin with but as the first seating with lots of children cleared out, the noise level became more manageable! Great food and lovely staff! Definitely would recommend the salmon burger.. and the apple crisp for dessert!

Great atmopshere, food, and service at the brewpub on the water in Victoria. Friends & I shared the halibut & chips, a chicken pot pie & a salad with smoked tuna. All of it was very good. Great first meal in Canada!

The meal was excellent, except that they had run out of mussels, which one of our party wanted. Spinnakers is great in many ways. We have stayed there, eaten there a few times. I am torn between a 4 and a 5, as it is very good pub food, but this time, I thought the service was particularly good, especially...

We visited The upstairs pub at Spinnakers and were very impressed with the bartender Connor 's knowledge of product and his courteousness. We enjoyed our beer and fish and chips as well the ambience of the restaurant. Spinnakers continues to stand out as one of Victoria's most dependable and traditional establishments and should not be missed!

Spent a night in the guesthouse at Spinnakers. Great location, great price and excellent breakfast. Went for a nice long walk along the path in front of restaurant. I highly recommend this trail. We had lunch at the restaurant also and the clam chowder is delicious.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some much appreciated feedback! Spinnakers is definitely situated in an amazing location just a beautiful 15 minute walk from downtown. Thank you for letting us know you loved our seafood chowder, we recently changed the recipe and make each bowl fresh to order - we like to think it is...

We recently celebrated an anniversary and instead of going out of town and up-island (good thing, due to the snow), we booked a Saturday night at Victoria's Spinnakers Brewpub and Guesthouses. We often go to their pub, but this was the first time staying at one of their rooms. We stayed in the Heritage House (Room 4), which is an...

We are delighted to hear that you had a such a memorable anniversary here at Spinnakers! That was a wise choice on your part to stay close to home, those winter roads have been pretty dangerous this season! The Heritage House is absolutely a charming and unique place to relax for a special occasion. The amenities included are definitely a...

Its been 6 years since we've been to Spinnakers, but we thought we'd give it a go again since we were in the area. We were seated right away. Took awhile for my daughter to get her drink (just under 10 minutes after ordering). Placed our order; Kids breakfast, mushroom pizza, and beet hazelnut salad. Food took awhile, but it...

My husband & I very much enjoyed our stay in the guesthouse, for a night of respite. It was quiet, had charm and character, a fireplace, jacuzzi tub, antique furniture... We enjoyed the west coast style of food and use of local ingredients. The service was very professional and their smiles added to our pleasant experience. Thank you so very...
