This is just a road side casual restaurant serving simple food. The ingredients used are fresh and high quality. The best fish and chip I had for a long time. The fish is better than the ones served in my hotel restaurant costing several times more. Don't miss this one in Tofino.

We had the spicy chicken tacos, and took home the chowder for dinner - both were very good. Service good, friendly, two of the best meals we had in the area!

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!

We ordered the poutine and fish tacos. Neither were that great but considering the lack of options in Tofino, especially in February, it was doable.

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. It is not easy to see from the highway and has only a very small sign at the bottom of about 10 other business signs so look... More

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