Great food, great service, a wide variety of menu items, drinks, beers, and chocolate! Sit by the window, if you can and look across the bay to the city of Victoria. Great park to walk around after you finish eating. Plenty of parking too,

The best way to go to Spinnakers is either walking along the Songhees Walkway from downtown or via the Harbour Ferries. (There is parking if you drive but it won't be a scenic). This is a landmark restaurant on the waterfront. It was Victoria's first brew pub. Recently it suffered a chimney fire so the old cozy fireplaces in the... More

Party of 4, verdict is salt & pepper smoked wings were really good, pizza was good, mussels were okay and the burger was not good at all. The burger bun was not "a classic burger bun" and just was not right as a burger bun. The toppings weren't burger type toppings and although it says on the menu what they... More

Spinnakers is a Victoria tradition known for its views and its fish and chips and beer. There was a fire a few months ago but everything is back to normal now and the place was pretty much packed with tourists and seniors when we went for lunch. We went upstairs where the view of the harbour is quite nice and... More

Really enjoyed our meal at Spinnakers and the wait staff was excellent. My husband had the "whole beasts bangers and smash" and I had the "halibut and chips", both were delicious. They also had their specialty salt and malt vinegar which were lovely. The only challenge was that we waited in the vestibule and did not see a sign to... More

Have a beverage and watch the float planes land and the sea gulls call from an awesome patio view. The food and staff are terrific. Great choices and happy hour is a great cost saver. Half off for some of their best appetizers. Definitely recommend a stop here for drinks and a meal.

Spinnakers was our first stop during our visit to Victoria. Food and beer was in order and Spinnakers didn't disappoint. We ordered a flight, pulled pork and a chicken sandwich. All was very tasty. It is easy to recommend Spinnakers to family and friends!

Thank Christ T
