“Food was good but not much atmosphere”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We ate here once during our visit to Sooke. Whilst the food was fine, there was little to no atmosphere. Perhaps it is better to try it for lunches during the daytime.

“Great location”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Good food and beautiful view of the Olympic mountains. Slow service, but view of small bay made up for it.

“Lovely location, great views, quirky menu”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a Sunday lunch time with family. Get a window table to admire the lovely view of the small natural harbour. The menu offers some traditional options and also some interesting alternatives and twists, which is good to see. The food arrived promptly and tasted great, the prices are fair. Worth dropping in for food if your in the area.

“Nice Drive for a Good Lunch”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Stickleback was recommended by a friend of a friend, so since we had some other business in Sooke, we though it was worth a try.
The setting is very pretty, on a little cove with a dock and an outdoor adventure school (the students were bustling around and provided some entertainment beyond the view), the room is OK, but a little spartan, with rather jarring lime green chairs. The overall effect is contemporary rather than comfortable.
My friend had a Chicken Burger and I asked the kitchen to make up the "Hungry Logger" burger without the bun. I also had the yam fries. The burger plate was very well presented and the fries were really nice. Often if you ask for a bun-less burger the kitchen just slaps the ingredients on the plate. Here an effort was made to give me a tasty meal. My friend enjoyed the chicken, as well.
The service was friendly and attentive. There were two staff on the front and about 10 guests on a February afternoon, so not a big test of serving skill.
Lunch was under $40.00. Will I go back? Yes, absolutely!
