Ate here on my brother's recommendation, he and my sis-in-law stayed and ate here last year. This place doesn't come up on the top TA list, I don't understand why. It's really good: just outside the touristy area across the harbor, beautiful view, attractive space,...More

Spinnakers had some of the best french fries I've ever had. The fish and chips were outstanding. They have a large variety of beers and the amber ale I had was excellent.

The view is by far and away the best part. The food was cold when came out. I would say the wings are on the lower end. For a brew pub expected more from the beer. It was ok but really lacked the completeness in...More

Do you have gluten-free options? I see some, but I know there are usually more options such as a leaf wrapped burger.
