Seaside Kitchen is a lovely place to eat and to enjoy the ambience of SSI. Simple and unpretentious, it relies in the quality of its food, the excellence of its service, and the amazing view to attract patrons. We are SSI residents, and we love this place. The Seaside Creation salad is amazing, and the fish and chips are terrific.... More

Consistently good food, fish being their speciality. Simple, effective menu. Fish & chips always delish. Beer & wine -- simple selection, but good. Very friendly and efficient service. Home-made desserts excellent. We're locals; have known them for many years, and are always happy to drop-in getting on or off the ferry at the next-door terminal. Would make it our regular... More

Okay, this place is supposed to have the best fish and chips on the island, and, according to my husband, who considers himself to be a f & c expert, they do! There are lots of other choices, though, and I thoroughly enjoyed my baked halibut with veggies and rice. A good, casual restaurant.

We had spent the day on Salt Spring Island to see their fabulous Farmer's Market, tour the island and do a little bit of shopping. When it was time to head out to catch the ferry for the mainland, we misjudged the time and ended up with a wait of over an hour. And dinner time was looming. We were... More

Just a short drive from Ganges you will find this gem of a seaside restaurant tucked in next to the ferry terminal. There is plenty of parking available and room on the deck that provides guests with great views of the ferry coming and going, the ocean and fall colours on the trees that line the shore. We recommend the... More

Stopped in on a whim and was treated well. Great spot on the deck, in the sun, with a view, really picturesque. The calamari was done just right, and the halibut and chips were tasty. Try the dark lager on tap.

I visit this restaurant every time I am lucky enough to visit Salt Spring Island. I can't speak for anything else on the menu, but I can vouch for the fish and chips - best ever! I always order the halibut with "half fries, half salad" and get the Ceasar salad, and I have never been disappointed. A real treat.

My husband and I were back twice for the mussels! The broth is amazing and if we were on the Island longer, we would've kept going back to this wonderful little restaurant with a wonderful view. Also had the fish and chips and salmon burger - DELICIOUS!! This place is definitely worth the very short drive out of Ganges. Food... More

If you have been looking for the best fish and chips, search no more, the halibut and chips are the best I have had. Last year on a trip to Halifax , we tried many places that professed to have the best. But none compared to Seaside. With the wonderful views from the deck and the super friendly staff, you... More

We have find memories of this restaurant as we had dined here 22 years ago with our young family. As we drove up last night, we were so pleased to see the restaurant still serving great food. Although we did not have a reservation, the hostess was friendly & did find us a table on the deck. The view was... More
