The best fish and chips I've had since I left Nova Scotia. A "quant roadside grill with a varied menu. Lots I wanted to try but only had so much time. The fish and chips were, in one word "great"! Would definitely recommend you visit them whenever in Tofino! Put them on your list!

HUGE Oysters. Delicious Fish and Chips. Slaw was awesome with lots of apple. You can tell it is great from the number of locals lining up and phoning in.

Had a great breakfast, soft yummy buns, perfectly cooked eggs, it was so good and enjoyed sitting outside, just a little chilly. We decided to do takeout rather than a dine in restaurant and made the right call. Fish and chips and fish tacos, both excellent. Great fries. Good prices and fast friendly service, can't go wrong. If in Tofino,... More

Make this one of your food stops when visiting the Tofino area! Great food offered at reasonable prices. A heads up that they only have an outdoor covered area for eating which can be quite chilly during the winter months. I've tried a large number of items on their menu and have never been disappointed. You can call your order... More

In Tofino for winter storm-watching, we stopped by the Wildside Grill just before they closed at 8 pm. Despite the late hour with the staff preparing to close for the day, they were cheerful, helpful and the food was outstanding. My wife had the Oyster Po Boy and I had a traditional hamburger. We took the food back to our... More

After a long day of travel we decided to get take out for dinner. (this is not a dine in restaurant) My friend had to bean and rice taco and I had the chicken burger. Both were pretty good (neither of us could finish so portion sizes are a bit on the big side). Staff were friendly and price was... More

Went here for lunch and the salmon fish tacos were delicious and filling. My wife enjoyed her fried oysters and fries which were also very satisfying. The service was quick and efficient but check and make sure the outdoor tables are clean since the crows hang around looking for food.

This is simple. Great food and kind staff. No indoor seating but has covered picnic tables. Fresh seafood, and good non seafood items for your travelling companion who may not like seafood.

Stopped in for lunch today, have the salmon fish and chips. It was a large portion and was prepared excellent. Also had the card club sandwich and it was even better. Highly recommend stopping here for lunch if you're in the area.

After being disappointed with the wait, food & amount of food from Tacofino. We were still hungry & happened to find this place tucked between some buildings. We got tacos & clam chowder, both were very good. There was no wait, good food & good prices. Will go to again for sure.

Thank Chase C
