We went for a couple drinks, service was friendly, but a little on the slower side. It wasn't too busy, as it was a week night, which made it nice and quiet.

We went here for dinner with family members when visiting from the UK. Spinnakers is a fun place to go and the staff are very welcoming. The food was pretty good, just short of excellent, and the drinks were also nice.

Went to Spinnakers with a group of 6 to celebrate my nephew's doctoral convocation. For a Thursday evening the place was very busy which is a testament to the great food & service they have there.

If you are searching for a great place for fish and beer this is a great place. The beer flights were a nice touch, to not commit and be able to taste something new. My salmon was cooked very well and we all enjoyed a great dinner.

I ordered halibut fish and chips. My wife ordered moules frites. We had a west coast fish plate to share. All 3 items were good. They have beer flights and a good variety of beer selection.

We stopped here for a quick lunch. The craft beer was really good and our meals were as well. I had the smoked tuna salad which was delicious. Not too much dressing. My husband had the grilled cheese special which was delish.

My husband and I really enjoyed Spinnakers. The food and beer and service were all excellent and the view from the patio is awesome. They even have a little gift shop where you can buy candy!

Had Beet Salad with Add On Salmon. It was a perfect combination. Salmon was a good size portion cooked perfectly. The Beet and Goat Cheese Salad had great quality ingredients and lots of nice nuts.

As pub food goes, I thought this was just about average. It's not bad, it just didn't stand out as anything special to my taste. I enjoyed the beers, which are good and location is great. There is a friendly atmosphere to the place and service can be slow.
