My wife and I split the surf and turf platter (for two). It offered good value as it's only $45. Everything tasted really good (especially the baby back ribs), but there were some letdowns. The platter was far more turf than surf. Sausage, ribs, chicken, and veggies were the turf, and the surf consisted of 4 small prawns and 16... More

We waited about 15 minutes to get our orders taken, which did not make any sense as there were only four tables occupied in the entire restaurant. Then we waited another hour for our food to arrive, (with no explanation or apology for the wait), and when it did finally arrive it was not worth the wait. One of us... More

My BF and I went to Stickleback on a recent trip to Sooke and we were both really happy with our decision to do so! We walked in (it was early, maybe around 5:00ish) and I was immediately struck by how clean and welcoming it is but how much cool stuff there is to look at. We went in January... More

Food here is amazing. I had the surf and turf platter and was thoroughly impressed. I was also blown away by the service. Nikkita was outstanding and takes pride in her job. Chantel greeted me and was attentive and although she wasn't my server, made sure I had everything I needed and was friendly. This place is a hidden gem!

We had a nice dinner here and were surprised at the reasonable prices for such a great atmosphere and view over the cove. I can imagine how great it would b to sit out on the deck here in the summer after you dock your boat in front. What else can I say? Chocolate Chipotle Cheesecake! I make cheesecakes almost... More

Just off the highway as you come or leave Sooke, B.C. is the amazing restaurant that comes with the option of a kayak lesson and other outdoor adventures. I had the pleasure of meeting the founder and owner Scott. Brilliant young entrepreneur; even opened a college to teach others adventure experiences. The food is healthy organic and plentiful. I love... More

From the deep-fried mac and cheese balls to the seafood chowder to the burgers, it's worth the trip out.
