“Great food, unwanted visitors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

So the food here was great and the prices are great for this area. Fish and chips and the oyster burger I had were great. We ate outside near the little cabana area which was nice. While we were dining, however, I noticed a rat in the cabana area outside of where we were eating. I'm sure people are dropping food throughout the day and this little guy was just there cleaning up. It was not appetizing though, and I sure hope he is not making his way into the actual restaurant.

“Best place for Quick Eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We couldn't get enough of this roadside gem. We stayed in Tofino 4 days and ate here 3 times for snacks and lunch. The menu has a lot of selection with unique items.... Excellent staff - quick orders - most fantastic fries and gravy. Served the best fried oysters and beef tongue tacos I have ever had. Will eat here again and again when I visit Tofino...keep up the tasty menu - excellent work Wildside! Watch out for crows or hungry husbands....

“Great food and reasonable price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

After an amazing stay at a resort on Cox Bay, we stopped in for a bite to eat here before heading home. We had the Fish and Chips and shared a Seafood Chowder, which were both amazing. The food came out fast and the we enjoyed the casual outdoor dining.
Watch out for the crows though!

“Best F&C I've ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We stopped here for lunch after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and were very glad we did. We passed by the evening before but decided not to stay on the grounds that all the seating is outside on picnic benches and it was a little chilly. But the next day, at lunchtime, in the sunshine, it was perfect. We both had the fish and chips (though I could have had anything - or everything! - off the delicious sounding menu) and it was fresh and hot, with thick, chunky portions of perfectly cooked salmon and cod, a generous helping of skin-on fries, and apple slaw. Compared with the greasy, flat servings you so often get in the UK it was a revelation! Definitely worth stopping off for, especially if you then take advantage of the 10% off homemade gelato deal at Chocolate Tofino next door!

“Great lunch place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Early March. Lunch outside in the sun. Poutine. Hot and tasty food. It was a great break in the day after a long morning spent walking on the beach.
