Kids shared a Hawaiian pizza, my husband had the Jambalaya, I had the the Lamburgini. My burger was average, I enjoyed it but nothing special. Fries were good. Husband's food was very hot temperature wise and right level of spicy but no flavour at all. Chicken and shrimp in it were overcooked. Boys enjoyed the pizza, they thought it was... More

We met another couple there for dinner and a catch up. We used to live on Salt Spring so know this restaurant well. Being Easter weekend the place was jam packed with people. Our two servers were friendly, efficient and calm. The four of us each had a different dish and we were very pleased with the meals. More impressive... More

We stayed at Salt Spring Inn for nine nights and ate many meals there. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner on several occasions and can honestly say the food and service were exceptional!

This restaurant was recommended by a local. The food was really good. I had the soup which was coconut squash and a lamb burger and it was delicious. Menu is a little pricey, but staff are excellent and atmosphere was great. Location is right in the heart of Ganges, so it was very convenient to where we were staying. I... More

They cram a lot of people in the place ( so it can be very noisy) but the service and food are very good. Lots of variety on the menu to suit everyone.

We were actually recommended to go here by a local, and after being spot on for other recommendations decided to give it a go. So disappointed we did. Ordered pizzas and they were awful.

This is rare for me to question a review; I take full account for all guest experiences, positive and negative. I truly believe this one is mistakenly applied to the wrong restaurant as several of the described details are not characteristics of Salt Spring Inn. We do not have a tip amount suggestion on our invoices or debit machines, we... More

Our breakfast was promptly and professionally served. I did find it quite expensive at $11.50 for a basic bacon and egg breakfast with only one piece of toast (coffee not included) this a $45 meal for 3 people. The meal was tasty and they did offer gluten free options.
