Must eat here

Best fish tacos and the pulled pork poutine was delicious! Pulled pork poutine was large enough for two people. Located on the main highway but in a small group of stores. Service was very good. Lots of picnic tables to sit.

I had high hopes based on the reviews, and this place totally delivered!! I got two things that were on special and they were both deliciously good. The chicken burger may have been the best chicken burger I have ever had. I will definitely be stopping here again next time I am in Tofino.

We found this eatery in a small collection of shops, a grocery store, and eateries on the drive from our hotel to downtown Tofino. It features take-out food and fresh seafood. We enjoyed chicken pozole soup, a guajillo chimichurri chicken burger, and French fries. All were very tasty. Save your receipt and you get a 10% discount at the nearby... More

An awesome place to have fresh seafood and other items. The fish tacos, seafood club, salmon & chips, take your pick.

The outdoor seating on picnic tables is perfect on a sunny day, but we opted for take-out. We phoned in our order ahead of time, as the line-ups and wait times can be extensive if they’re busy. We ordered fish and chips (ling cod, since they were out of halibut, but just as tasty in my opinion) and a Caesar... More

So good. A perfection in the breakfast sandwich area. Hell, even my burp tasted awesome 45mins later. What more can I say?

The salmon fish and chips was a nice change with the panko batter, nice and flakey, not greasy, the salmon fish tacos were ok, not much fish in the taco, I would go back though ....

Chicken tacos were pretty good, I've had better. my boyfriend loved his meal - which was pretty dang good. The chowder was meh... More

We ate at the Wildside grill a few times during our visit because the food was fresh and home-made. It took a few minutes to get our meal which was good because it meant that it was home made and not something frozen. The staff were friendly and happy dispite the crowds.
