Actually have a nephew who is a brewer there - I enjoy their craft beer. Restaurant was great. If we had more time we would of taken the water taxi from the Inner harbor to the restaurant for a neat experience.

We are here for a late lunch. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the view. The food was good - everyone enjoyed it. I don't drink beer so I had a mojito which was excellent.

A water taxi dropped us within an easy walk to Spinnakers. Beautiful view of the harbor and a nice selection of menu items and beer. Our waitress was right on it when we walked through the door. My meal was delicious and although it was quite busy, we received great service. I would definitely visit Spinnakers on our next trip... More

An up-and-down dining experience. I had the three little pigs thin crust pizza and it was very good. My wife had the fish and chips and couldn't finish her fish because it was too overcooked, making it dry and somewhat tasteless. The setting is very nice; we had a window table looking out onto the Inner Harbour. But, overall the... More

Spinnakers has a great old pub atmosphere and reliably good food. I always enjoy trying a flight of their home brewed beer! It is a great way to sample what they make. Their Hoppy Hour from 3:00-5:00 is a real deal with half price appies. You can't best the mussels or the chicken wings. Oh unless you like pulled pork... More

My husband and I live near this brewpub and have eaten here often over the years but tonight it hit an all time low. I am sure the pizza I ordered off their "fresh sheet" was made hours earlier and reheated. It was so hard and dry. My husband ordered a burger and he said it was also dry and... More

We sat in the pub and got a nice indoor table overlooking the ocean. It was a really nice laid back atmosphere to catch up with some old friends and to drink back a few jugs of their house brewed beer. We liked the snakebite ( a mix of beer and cider) a lot. The food was quite good as... More

We stopped in for an early evening beer and appetizer. There is a great selection of beers, ales and malts. They make it very convenient to sample multiple drinks . We only had the hand cut French fries , which were delicious. The view from the Pub Deck ( adults only) was great and worth the wait. The server was... More

Had a very nice dinner here while staying one night in Victoria. There is a great selection of their craft beers (of course!) and the food many had so many great choices that I had trouble deciding what to order! I settled on the roast pork with Apple compote and dandelion greens, my husband had the sablefish with clams and... More
