Wildside is also good and will always be a place I recommend for quick take away food, but it was gotten a bit pricey for my opinion. It's been a bit sad because I miss my comfort foods, but don't want to blow the budget...More

My wife and I ate here twice. It's good food. We did takeout both times, you can eat there. They only have outdoor seating, with no service. The seating area is nice. Check out the tiny market next door, it amazing to see such a...More

Our first night in Tofino we arrived around half past six after driving all day. We were tired and hungry, and a little distressed to discover that the first few restaurants we looked into were closed or closing at 7:00. Then we found Wildside Grill,...More

Whenever I visit Vancouver Island I try fish and chips at many different places and easily one of the best ever was from Wildside Grill. The fish was crispy and flavorful, the panko bread crumb coating was much less greasy than traditional battered fish, I...More

I tried Wildside Grill when Tacofino happened to be closed. I was really let down by what I received. If you are a foodie you will be disappointed. Their fish tacos are made with Cod, which should have been my first hint. The deep fried...More

Stopped here after our whale watching tour for lunch. Was quick and easy with decent food. Outdoor seating was convenient and nice on a non rainy day. Had the burger and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were tasty and fairly priced.

We had the salmon burger and the chicken tacos, both were very tasty and the outdoor seating was quite charming! The food is quite good, not super exceptional but still what you’d expect from a little grill of its kind. Would go again!
