What I tried: Fish & Chips (Ling Cod & Halibut) and Tofino Apricot & Rose Kombucha.
The service was amazing. The guys at the front of house were super friendly and gave me great recommendations on what to get as it was my first time there.
I have said this many time to everyone I have met going to Tofino or planning to go there; The BEST fish and chips I have ever had in my life is at Wildside Grill by far.
This may be controversial but i DO NOT like beer battered fish and chips. The reason for this is that I am not a fan of greasy, soggy, oily fish. However, the fish at Wildside Grill is Panko crusted which is my ultimate favorite way to deep fry a fish. You have a choice between Salmon,Long Cod or Halibut.
I ordered two pieces of Halibut which was $21 and then added hand cut fries and coleslaw for $6 and $2.50 each. Yes it is slightly pricey but OH SO WORTH IT.
The fish was extremely succulent, fresh and juicy. All the fish that is served at Wildside Grill is locally caught and served that day. The fries were crispy and super fresh.
I could talk about this place for days. My only regret was not trying everything on the menu as the one dish that I did try was so outstanding I did not want to eat anything else.
The also cook seasonally with local ingredients and use the freshest seafood Tofino has to offer.
Tofino is a unique place for surfing, relaxing and just being a beach bum. This is the same for Wildside Grill. It has a very relaxed and carefree atmosphere.
They are located in the Live to Surf Complex under a tree in a wooden building. The beautiful trees provide shade in which you can sit on benches and tables to eat. There are also tables with giant umbrellas for your to shelter from the sun and enjoy a spectacular meal. Breath in the ocean air and seafood smells.
