The Best in Sooke

Four of us had the halibut done in three different ways and it was delicious. The food was nicely presented and our service was very good. The wine selection was adequate. We ate on the patio which overlooks Sooke Inlet and it provided us with a lovely evening view of the water. We liked it so... read more

Great burgers, great service! Servers were friendly and the view on the patio was awesome! Recommend it for sure.

Excellent location overlooking Cooper's Cove and offering a very good reasonably priced menu. Unfortunately our experience was marred by an overbearing waitress who constantly interrupted our meal and then presented us with the bill before we had even finished our main course. She then asked if we wanted desert! On this service level we wouldn't recommend it.

We were hungry. 5 women. Tourists in British Columbia. We happened upon Stickleback and were not disappointed. Our waitress was extremely friendly. The food was quite good. The view was nice. Two of the ladies had the battered Halibut and raved. I had the Halibut as well, baked in a sauce. Extremely tasty! Safe bet. If you're on the road... More

We thought this would be a more upscale dining experience, but it's really just a slightly upmarket burger joint. It has a beautiful view but the service was terrible. The food was over-seasoned and mediocre. This is not a five-star restaurant. If the service improved, it would deserve 3 stars, but that's it.

A casual waterfront dining experience that encourages you to linger. If you are sitting outside enjoying the spectacular view of the Sooke Basin from the patio and it gets chilly, staff will bring you a blanket so you can continue to enjoy. The prices are very reasonable and the food is great. You can't get a meal at this price... More

This little gem of a restaurant seems to suit the surrounding area beautifully. Outside seating looks out over the Sooke Harbour and the setting is casual and friendly. Service is great and our food was delicious. The fish and chips was a wonderful meal at the end of a long day of cycling the trails.

We enjoyed several evenings here in a relaxed setting. The staff were great and looked after us well. We were lucky with the weather and got to sit outside one evening and enjoy the air conditioning the other evenings.

Great service, great choices, great food and just down from the Galloping Goose cycle path. We ate right on the water and enjoyed the evening sun

My partner and I stopped in at Stickleback in March for an early dinner. The day was rainy so we weren't able to sit outside and enjoy the patio, but we were seated next to a window where we could look out onto the bay and enjoy the view. The decor is somewhat dated but it doesn't affect the quality... More
