Good value and good food

The service is fast and the food is tasty. The Wildside Grill is dependable and offers good value. Be aware that the seating is outdoors, so inclement weather means going there for take-out. The fish and chips, chicken burgers and salmon burgers are all excellent.

Everything at this little outside eatery is amazing and fresh but I almost always go here for the spicy chicken tacos. They're pretty mush the freshest tasting taco this side of the Mexican border. Their tuna burger is also kinda amazing.

We only ate here once during our stay in Tofino. I really wanted to try this as it was featured on the show "you gotta eat here". The food was fresh and delicious! Definitely recommend it!!! The only thing was if it's raining there isn't really a place to sit. They do have 4 tables, but 2 of them had... More

Each section of the restaurant is different and fun. Beautifully decorated in NW style. Food was quite good.

Wonderful, tasty fish tacos, perfect serving size, great service and fantastic atmosphere and the poutine was darn fine as well. A bit on the pricey side for lunch though.

i am a celiac and had the most delicious fish tacos. I would recommend them to anyone. My husband had the pulled pork pouting which was great as well. The gentlemen cooking and the girl that took our order were very helpful and I had no issues

Stopped for lunch on a trip to Tofino. My wife had a bowl of the Chowder and was really impressed. Lots of flavor and hearty. I had the Wild Shrimp and Chips. Coleslaw was especially good. This is a small place, but the food was great. Would definitely eat here again. Appeared to be popular among the locals there too.

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
