We ate here twice in the last month and on both occasions the food was very good and the service attentive. It's nice to eat out on the patio if it's warm enough, which we did. You can see eagles and herons and seals from the patio and watch the kayakers coming and going. We had the mussels, clams and... More

Have eaten lunch at this restaurant a few times over the last 6 months and find that the food and service quality is consistent. Very pleased with all different lunches eaten here. The burgers don't drip! Wraps are delicious. Seafood chowder is very tasty and filled with seafood! Salads are fresh. No negatives. Great friendly service. Will need to go... More

We have been here for nearly a week and just keep going back to this great little spot on the water! Excellent service, lovely atmosphere and yummy food that we could both enjoy. Highly recommend the cheesy bannock Appy and the halibut fish and chips is amazing. Nothing else really compares in Sooke for low key atmosphere, delicious food, and... More

Had a great Friday lunch at Stickleback for a party of four on the outside patio after our Adrena LINE Zipline adventure. One of our AdrenaLine guides had taken class right next door to Stickleback and recommended it, so we figured it would probably be good. Good selection, great presentation and service. Beautiful location on the Bay.

This eatery has a beautiful location and the patio has wonderful views! The menu offers something for everyone. It is located just outside of Sooke and very close to the Galloping Goose Bike trail. We arrived on bikes and had made the 80 KM round trip cycling from Victoria just to dine here and enjoy the outdoor patio. Service was... More

Dining room has good views of a little cove, and the patio is lovely even on a cloudy day. Menu is varied, good prices, good wine and beer selection. Seafood soup was excellent, Galloping Goose burger was tasty, well presented, good size serving, and the slow roasted pork sandwich with a side salad was excellent. Service was prompt, kitchen was...

Sticklebacks seems to have found the combination after two previous restaurants in this location folded after about a year each. You can either eat inside or on a great patio overlooking Cooper's Cove; this is especially inviting on a sunny day. This time we went for dinner, just as the sun was going down, so opted for inside which initially... More

We didn't realize when we arrived at this restaurant that we would walk out with such an admiration for the staff and food quality. Kim, our server, was so friendly and accommodating that she deserves the customer service award for the month. We ordered "The Dock"...if you're really hungry and want to share between 2 people, this is the one... More

I've been going to stickleback since it opened but I have been going less and less since the food is subpar. I haven't gone since last year so I thought I would give stickleback a second chance as I love to support local resturants..... wish I didn't. I ordered their drink special 'melon mojito', all I tasted was soda water;... More
