Brilliant!

Great quality FRESH fish n chips. Try the Hallibut! Try the Tuna burger! so much to choose from. Fast turnaround on orders and the guys behind the counter will keep you entertained while you wait. We had take-out from here twice. Both times was marvelous. Very reasonable prices.

If you think $15 for an OK burger and fires is your thing then go for it. Again, Another tofino business that is chasing pennies, which chases away dollars. For example, why charge an extra $3 or whatever for a really small side salad instead of fries. I also find the fries just kinda greasy right, but I'm not really... More

This small place has awesome burgers and fries. The list of burger options is varied. We shared one and there was plenty for two. We chose the cod with bacon & I forget the rest of the filling -'it was yummy! The seating is outdoors though some is covered for those rainy days. This place is definately worth a visit.

The Wildside Grill in Tofino, BC is a hidden gem. The food is great and the atmosphere fast food informal. My wife ordered halibut fish and chips and I ordered the salmon burger. They were both outstanding. The fish was caught just the day before and was panko-breaded and then deep fried to a beautiful golden brown. It was full... More

My wife and I shared the fish and chips which were really good. For what it's worth, the coleslaw was a bit weird. It had shaved apples in it and I appreciate what they were going for but it didn't seem like the taste balanced very well. Anyway, it's only outdoor seating so be prepared. Worth going back to.

This is our default food spot in Tofino. You have to like eating outdoors though. The chowder and poutine are the best, but you really can't go wrong here.

If you want to have a bite without spending a fortune and if you like fresh fish and the sun is shining, try this little shack and its outdoor picnic tables. The grounds are well maintained and romantic in a rustic way. The fish is local, fresh and without all those terrible sauces that seem to be a recurring characteristic... More

Eaten here twice today. The salmon tacos for lunch were good. Had to come back for the shrimp and fries, gumbo and green salad. Everything is made fresh right then and there and is so tasty. The shrimp were delicious as was the gumbo.....and heck why not add the salad to that too, very fresh and light. A lot of... More

I must have eaten here four or five times. The food was excellent, if low key. But everyone was so friendly, and it was just a neighbourhood joint. Amazing work.
