We had the Oyster Burger $13 and Salmon Burger $15 Both were really good. They come with fries. They have outside seating so we took ours to the Inn as it was raining . Great staff ! Will go back .

The service was nice. We weren't charged for cups of water. It was fairly quick and easy, food was pretty good! I'd definitely go again!

Stopping at Wildside Grill is a very convenient take out option on those nights where I just don't feel like cooking at home. Best poutine in town (with vegetarian gravy) and the fish tacos are my favourite in town!

We had heard terrific reviews of this wonderful little spot, so we stopped for lunch. Two of us had oyster po boys and one had salmon tacos. Really nice fish, but a little greasy (to be expected for deep fried items, I guess :-). Its a really nice spot, with nice picnic tables and really friendly staff. If you have... More

Having driven from Uclulet to find the Wildside Grill, I assumed it was in the village of Tofino but it is actually about 3kms from downtown on the main road leading into town.

The best fish and chips in town. Don't look for a fancy restaurant - this is strictly take-out and worth every penny.

I'd tried the place on previous visits to Tofino, and had luke-warm experiences, but decided to try it again after seeing it profiled on a TV show. Had the Cod Club, and found it thoroughly underwhelming. The fish on the sandwich was a good portion, but it used lettuce that was past its prime, it was under-sauced, and there were... More

I've been many times and like the burgers and chips although the chips tend to be overdone. Likewise with the fish and chips, usually a bit overdone. But, on the other hand, very good portion size for the price.
