Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fabulous food as always but we were especially grateful for their care and attention to a serious allergy amongst our group! It was nice and cozy to sit under the gazebo with chairs around the fire too! Thank you!

We’ve been enjoying delicious meals from Surfside Grill for years, when we stay at Pacific Sands. Today we ordered in advance, as we often do, and experienced a hiccup with the pickup process. We were feeling a bit frustrated when the owner jumped in and...set things right 100%; a pleasant surprise. We’ll be back to enjoy the awesome food next time we visit. Thanks Surfside Grill.More

We were staying at the resort so figure we give this place a try for dinner. Glad we did. The salmon burger is one of the tastiest i've had. Fries were good, just the right amount of salt. Chowder was also delicious. Great atmosphere too...especially at night around the provided fire pits.More

The fish tacos and the shrimp tacos are crazy good. Food is fresh and staff terrific. Perfect place to eat or just to relax and enjoy a drink while on Cox Beach. We really enjoyed chatting with the owner, Jeff!

Tasty food...freshly prepared for you ...and very willing to adjust the order to suit. Reasonably priced for Canada. Enjoy the varied company around the firepits. We ate there 3 evenings in a row after a days bear, whale watching and walking on the shore. After...enjoy the spectacular sunset on the beach, looking out through the islands.More

Great fish and chips. Fire pits. Beautiful sunset views. Parking is limited but able to get a spot around 3pm. Visited twice while in the area- very relaxing! Able to get a place during sunset... so beautiful. Locals recommend it & prices are reasonable. Just...down the street from BW - Tofino.More

I understand the place was busy (everywhere in Tofino is this time of year)....but people who ordered after me received their food before I did! Food was overpriced for a mediocre meal. Would not go again.

Salmon burgers or fish Tacos? We ate here every night of our visit to Tofino and all were superior and tasty. The open air seating around the large gas firepits were comfortable and inviting to eating and conversation with friends.

I was looking for tacos and the reviews for some of the other local places were not very positive ( long lines and mediocre food.). Surfside Grill did not fit that description. The service was really fast and friendly and the food was delicious. Cod...tacos for me (3) and halibut and chips for my partner. The tacos were full of yummy goodness and the serving was very generous. The halibut, crusted in panko, was so crunchy that I could hear it when he bit into it! Delicious home fries as well. We were able to get a seat at one of the fire pit tables which took the chill off a bit. I would definitely return and definitely recommend.More
