We went to wildside grill and we were disappointed. We had gumbo and fish and chips between us and both went down well. Definitely recommend for a budget meal of good quality in Tofino. The fish particularly was nice and fresh.

Always reliable excellent fish or salmon tacos. All ingredients are fresh and made freshly. This is a popular place so not unusual to wait in line takeout style so grab a picnic table, wait and relax while people watching. Three fish tacos for $13 is filling but not heavy and the sauce seems light. Tempura batter is wonderful and not... More

Love this place. Recommend it to all my friends and family that visit me during the summer. I've yet to have a bad meal there. Only thing is that is sooo difficult to choose! Hearty portions, fast service and covered outdoor seating. Just don't leave your meal unattended or you will make the crows extremely happy. The fish tacos and... More

great for a sunny day, you get to sit outside and enjoy your food. It is outdoors, so some bugs, but the food & atmosphere made up for it. Food was ready quickly, and it was very decently priced. Our seafood 'plates' was great, the burger was nothing special. Afterwards you can walk a few steps and get an ice... More

Lives up to its hype of the freshest seafood burgers and fish and chips. Crisp batter soft , moist halibut inside. Fries were crisp and fresh. Large portions. Good idea if you were with a group to choose different items and share so everyone can have a taste of more than one item . We were there on a long... More

My husband and I had a great lunch here. I had the gumbo poutine and my husband tried an oyster burger. We really enjoyed the food. My husband even helped himself to half of mine! It's outdoor eating with a few bugs flying about but the food was very good and in nice weather, eating outdoors is really nice

It is important to know that all of the seating here is outdoors, although there is a plexiglass roof over the unique driftwood structure so some diners can stay dry. Many people order "to go" also. Seafood is what you have to order here. The salmon fish and chips are excellent. This time they did not have seafood chowder or... More

Wildfire Grill is a friendly spot frequented by locals. It opens at 9:00 and serves a small selection of hearty, tasty breakfast sandwiches. We ate at picnic tables under the trees. Very low-key ... super flavourful ... will definitely return!

We stopped here for lunch and it was delicious, the fish and chips were very filling and the pulled pork poutine was hot and filling, the fish tacos were very tasty and the seafood chowder was good. Service was prompt and food was hot. Out door seating only - great on a hot day. A bit pricey but average for... More
