Had brunch here, amazing quality. The home made fries were perfectly cooked with scallions. We had the brownstone benny and veggie omelette. Amazing! 5 stars. On another occasion we had the pepperoni pizza with mushrooms as well as the jambalaya. I would say the pizza was a bit small for the price and the jambalaya for $23 could have been... More

Here is a centrally located restaurant offering really reliable cuisine at lunch and dinner with the simple sophistication of good soups, obliging, attentive (but not irritating) Service and a price within reason. Brunches are very a particular boon not to be overlooked.

No matter what the weather outside, and goodness knows we have seen it all in the past few weeks, the Salt Spring Inn is a place to head for. During recent snow-filled days, we found ourselves drawn to the Inn for their amazing butter chicken, hearty roasted corn and chicken chowder, and pizza specials. Their ways of welcoming everyone, serving,... More

We enjoyed our meals there, though the portions aren't large. They had a good choice of drinks as well. We arrived later in the evening (they close at 10:00pm) on a Friday night so it was pretty quiet in the restaurant (dead of winter).

This is a lovely place! Very welcoming and efficient staff. Excellent food: the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict were a real breakfast treat. We had a very comfortable stay in a beautiful place. The Inn was full for happy hour; this is a place where the locals come, too . We had some car trouble, and Jeremy quickly steered us to... More

The place every was very bust bytes the food came out fast and hot. Loved the daily feature menu... one of the best pixxas I have eaten. The real highlight was the terrific home-made hot sauce they make on site. It was to-die-for!

We have visited Salt Spring Inn Restaurant twice recently and had the same experience both times. The food is wonderful ... the service is warm and friendly. But we don't plan to go back. The problem: the noise is overwhelming. On our last visit we were there with a small group of friends with whom we could not have any... More

Thank you for taking time to provide a review. We are aware that on some occasions, the good times being had by larger groups can create a high noise level. Coincidentally we have been looking at some "noise damping" devices that will not overly undermine our attractive heritage look and decor. We do concur that the New Year's eve revelry... More

We love the warm & friendly atmosphere that welcomes everyone. The food is delicious, and substitutions can be made without a fuss. The servers are efficient and very competent, and the management asks for feedback on your experience. That's why they are the best!
