Came down to Sooke from Victoria to site see and had dinner here. Beautiful setting on the bay, too bad it was chilly and couldn't sit outside. Taps were out of order so that was disappointing but the staff were very personable and fast. I had the special of the evening which was a burrito with their chowder and it was very good and a huge portion. Unfortunately, hubby had a noodle bowl and it was gross. He tried to eat it but couldn't get through it. I had a bit to see what the problem was and it was like chef had emptied a half jar of peanut butter over it. Not peanutty like Pad Thai, just gross thick tasting peanut butter. Not recommended!

Having spent a couple of months in Sooke (and living close by for a year), we've found dining out to be of poor value in the area Stickleback escapes this reputation. Food prices are reasonable and the food is excellent. Wine selection is a bit weak (only 4 of each colour and 2-3 or each may be "cellared n Canada" stuff but you can bring your own. Lots of local beers on tap though.

Like many places, service cold be a bit better.

Visited for lunch on a beautiful sunny August day. When we arrived around 1:30 on Sunday, there was a very long line up at the till at this busy little restaurant - which is always a good sign. It took some time to get seated but we understood the Sunday rush. Things started to go south as waitresses buzzed by us for about 30 minutes before recognizing no one was taking our order. The food tasted great. Two small items; the wrap could have used some colour on the plate and the fries, while tasty, were small bits and pieces. Service picked up once someone realized no one was paying any attention to us! Good food though and wonderful view so we'll be back.

This won’t take long.
Waited 15 minutes to be seated in an empty premise save for three tables outside.
Incorrect order taking & presentation (wrong fish order, incorrect burger selection).
Partial orders left in kitchen then delivered cold (French fries).
Gluten order delivered on a bun.
No tartar, ketchup even after request.
Apparently the blueberry ribs were good.
Petty server tricks including waiting 20 minutes after requesting bill and 20 subsequent minutes for the ‘machine’.
Perhaps good for take out.
