This was our first visit to this end of the island. Having read the reviews we decided to stop in on a Sarurday evening, no reservation. Quite busy, but there were tables. Great location on the water, nice outside deck and quaint inside. We chose to stay inside as people looked a bit chilly outdoors. Had halibut and chips and... More

Our hosts recommended this place, and OMG! Once we tried it, we just kept going back. The menu features their "Famous Fish and Chips" and with good reason. Absolutely the best I've ever had, anywhere. Everything we tried was great, especially the steamed mussels, but you don't want to miss the deep-fried fresh local halibut (in season). Sure, the place... More

Food is excellent, fresh, tasty, plenty of choices. Service is great. The view is to die for. If I lived locally, this would be a regular spot. Prices are way less than you'd expect.

Our Vacation suite was around the corner so we ate here 2 nights in a row. Something we almost never do on a vacation because there is just so much to explore. The grilled halibut was outstanding so were the crab cakes and calamari.

We stayed on Salt Spring Island for 5 days and ate at Seaside Restaurant twice. The staff is very friendly and provide wonderful service. The food is excellent.We especially loved the key lime pie. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

but the view was even better than our recall! This is a small local restaurant with great fish and chips. Really, everything we have had is pretty good. We last came here 3 years ago and it is still worth the drive for a lovely evening. It is away from the hustle of Ganges and a great way to have... More

We love heading for the Seaside to taste their fish and chips - fish choices are great, fresh and battered magnificently. Tiny deck is great if you time it right to find a table. Try going just after a ferry leaves for Crofton. Great ice-cream window, if you only have a little time. Generous portions; reasonable prices. Gelato at the... More

This place is small but we managed to get a reservation to sit on the patio and watch the sunset. We had the mussels and each got some halibut and chips. Everything was so good and fresh. These were the best fish and chips we've ever had. The mussels were really good as well. We also ordered a dessert to... More
