Fodor's Review

Victoria's longest list of handcrafted beers is just one reason to trek over the Johnson Street Bridge or hop a Harbour Ferry to this Vic West waterfront pub. Canada's oldest licensed brewpub, Spinnakers relies almost exclusively on locally sourced ingredients for its top-notch casual fare. Opt for the pubby adults-only taproom, with its covered waterfront deck, double-sided fireplace, and wood-beamed ceilings, or dine in the all-ages waterfront restaurant. Either way you can enjoy such high-end pub grub as mussels steamed in ale, fish-and-chips with thick-cut fries, or brick oven pizzas (try the house-smoked wild salmon or the mushroom and beer) . You can also stop by for breakfast, served from 8 am to 2 pm daily, or grab some house-made picnic fixings at the take-away deli and bakery.
