Love this place! Serves local food and freshly brewed beer. Great value for money - especially when compared to other pubs in the area.

Great place with a great view. Lots of wood as expected on the inside. There are 2 pool tables and 2 dart boards that are not crowded by chairs, which is awesome. The menu had typical pub food and some nicer options as well. The cheese and beer pot was incredible. We enjoyed a beer flight of 4 good sized beers for something like $10. Excellent service as well. Great place to visit when in Victoria.

Daily cask just $5 a pint. Canít beat that. Food used to be a lot better and is now hit or miss. Having said that, their pulled pork nachos are the bomb and youíre depriving yourself if you leave without picking up a few of the best chocolate truffles in town. Beer selection and quality is second to none.

Situated in one of the most beautiful locations I have seen. Bar itself is large and airy with a rustic charm that is appropriate for the location. Service was decent, not great but good for Victoria. Selection was large again for Victoria but very local. Food was spectacular, some of the best I have had in a brewpub. Prices were high but with quality I am happy to pay. This is a must in Victoria.

My favorite stop during my day trip/ beer tour of Victoria. Right out on the harbor, so itís cool to sit out on the deck. Lots of beers to taste and most were quality beers.

Stopped in on a rainy morning and tried everything on tap plus a nice little lunch. Great service (they werenít busy), nice views, and pretty decent beers. Worth a visit if youíre in the area, though itís a good little jaunt from the tourist area when on foot. You probably wonít be disappointed, however, if you stroll out that way.

Excellent brewpub that we wer taken to as part of a pub crawl via Holland America Cruise Lines. We sampled local organic cheeses, mussels and home made chocolate which were all excellent. Atmosphere was lively with a jazz band playing. John (the owner) spent an hour with us talking about the beers and the company then an extra half hour with me talking beer and offering extra samples. Brews are top rate, and thereís also a gift store that carries about 40 bottles (I think 9 of their own). Definitely a place I wish was 1200 miles closer to home.

Nice location and feel, friendly knowledgeable staff, tasty food. Good selection of generally quite good beers. Separated into restaurant downstairs and bar upstairs. A pioneer in the BC brewpub revival. Particularly enjoyed the Fog Fighter ale and the apple pie for dessert. Due to a table/seating mistake we had to wait at the bar for 10-15 minutes, the bar tender was friendly and poured us samples of whatever we were interested in and ended up giving us five pints on the house. One of my favorites, to bad itís out in Esquimalt and not so convenient for public transit.

Possibly the most scenic brewpub Iíve ever been to. Right on the water on the north portion of the harbor. We sat out on the patio on the main, but I guess they have one upstairs which probably provides an even better view. Not that Iím complaining.

Service here on a Friday afternoon was a bit on the lax side, but it was very friendly and helpful, just a bit slow in terms of pace. The wait staff was a bit surprised by my request to try every beer (ten), but they obliged. The beer quality was decent enough, though I didnít care for a number of the offerings.

Food was quite good. I ordered the bangers and mash, which Iíd highly recommend. My girlfriend got a sandwich that was good as well. Food was in the $15 - $25 range for entrees.

I wouldnít come all the way to Victoria to come here, but itís a nice place to have when youíre here. We took the walk along the water from the downtown area here, which was only about a mile each way and was very nice.
