Open airy restaurant adjacent to the water. Nice variety of good and the burgers we had were tasty, the bun fresh. Friendly service. The patio would be amazing on a warm day.

This is a good spot for a romantic dinner. The food is good. Not fine dining, more like pub food but the view and waterfront location are very nice.

Beautiful scenery from the outdoor patio or the window. It was a cold day so we sat inside and watched the boats at Cooper's Cove. The food was delicious, the service quick and pleasant. Good range of appetizers and fair size portions.

We stumbled upon stickleback west coast eatery while exploring sooke on a day trip from Victoria. Our patio table looked over a beautiful little bay! The food was incredible and the service was top-notch! One of the best experiences of our week in the area!

Vegetable was carrots of which we had four baby ones ! Potatoes were suppose to be baby and garlic but were dry and tasteless.... More

In fact, we've been to this fine place a number of times of times over the years and expect to be back many more. Diners can literally throw a rock and hit the water from their patio seat. Other "hits" would include the view of Cooper's Cover, the friendly service, the interesting menu and the good food. While it could... More

Stopped here for the first time for lunch. The environment was cozy and warm and the staff were very friendly. It was a full house at the lunch hour. The menu had a little something for everyone.

This is a nice place to stop for fish and chips or a good burger. We have eaten here a few times and have yet to be disappointed. The waitress even pulled out a little heater for us when it was a cooler night.

We've been to the Stickleback twice this summer and both times we enjoyed both the food and the view. The homemade bannock is delicious and we have enjoyed all of the dishes we have tried.
