This rustic inn has a great small town feel and friendliness to it. Restaurant had good variety of choices on the menu. Lambirgini burger highly recommended and delicious. Was told by a friend it's also very consistent. Always good to know. Try it!

I stopped into the SS Inn for a glass of wine and appetizers one evening on my first visit to the island. The wine was local, from Garry Oaks and was delicious. The crab cakes were really delicious, but the salad I had lacked imagination and wasn't as described in the menu. The bartender who took my order seemed uninterested... More

Husband's food was very hot temperature wise and right level of spicy but no flavour at all. Chicken and shrimp in it were overcooked. Boys enjoyed the pizza, they thought it was... More

We met another couple there for dinner and a catch up. We used to live on Salt Spring so know this restaurant well. Being Easter weekend the place was jam packed with people. Our two servers were friendly, efficient and calm. The four of us each had a different dish and we were very pleased with the meals. More impressive... More
