This was our second visit and I doubt we will be back. Was extremely busy; waited for what seemed to be forever before we wer acknowledged onlynto find out from server thatbit had been a little slower earlier so they sent staff home and didn't call them back. Located right at water; wear a sweater as they tend to leave... More

Vegetable was carrots of which we had four baby ones ! Potatoes were suppose to be baby and garlic but were dry and tasteless.... More

In fact, we've been to this fine place a number of times of times over the years and expect to be back many more. Diners can literally throw a rock and hit the water from their patio seat. Other "hits" would include the view of Cooper's Cover, the friendly service, the interesting menu and the good food. While it could... More

Stopped here for the first time for lunch. The environment was cozy and warm and the staff were very friendly. It was a full house at the lunch hour. The menu had a little something for everyone.

This is a nice place to stop for fish and chips or a good burger. We have eaten here a few times and have yet to be disappointed. The waitress even pulled out a little heater for us when it was a cooler night.

We've been to the Stickleback twice this summer and both times we enjoyed both the food and the view. The homemade bannock is delicious and we have enjoyed all of the dishes we have tried.

Stopped in Sooke for dinner rather than driving back to Victoria. It was a very good idea. Our meal was great. Waitress was very helpful in suggesting items to share. We were so full we didn't have space for dessert. Would love to return to dine on the waterside patio, in the warmer weather.

We recently moved up the road from the Stickleback Eatery and will now make it our go-to resto for casual dining in Sooke! Situated on a beautiful ocean inlet beside an adventure kayaking company, it boasts a serene oceanfront patio for dining on sunny days, and the upscale well-designed interior is perfect for couples or family dining, each table with...
