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.

Stopped in Sooke for dinner rather than driving back to Victoria. It was a very good idea. Our meal was great. Waitress was very helpful in suggesting items to share. We were so full we didn't have space for dessert. Would love to return to dine on the waterside patio, in the warmer weather.

We recently moved up the road from the Stickleback Eatery and will now make it our go-to resto for casual dining in Sooke! Situated on a beautiful ocean inlet beside an adventure kayaking company, it boasts a serene oceanfront patio for dining on sunny days, and the upscale well-designed interior is perfect for couples or family dining, each table with...

For an Island there are few restaurants on the water on Vancouver island. So a restaurant with a view of the harbor is rare and welcome sight. Our server was fast efficient and eager to make our meal special. We found several dishes on the menu that were unique and capitalized on seafood available in a ocean location. The meal... More

Recently spent a week in Sooke in a vacation rental home and stocked up with lots of fish and groceries coming in given the previous limited quality dining options. The homeowner recommended the Stickleback, a newer restaurant. What a find! Very nicely designed interior, although we opted for the waterfront patio during our sunny week there, just a beautiful setting... More

We tried this restaurant 5 minutes down the road from our ziplining experience on a sunny afternoon, we sat outside to enjoy the waterfront and the views, the service was excellent and we have no complaints about the food...we will return if we are in the neighborhood again!
