Wildside Grill – Tofino, BC

This is Part 1 of our Vancouver Island Food Adventures!  Check out the rest!


Recently AngryRussian and I celebrated our first anniversary by taking a little trip to Vancouver Island.  Our mainstay was Ucluelet but we also visited Tofino our first day there.  We got up nice and early to catch the early ferry over (6 am!!)

It was pretty awesome to watch the sunrise over the distance across the water from the ferry 🌅

We went straight to Tofino and was in search for food right away.  AngryRussian came across Wildside Grill in his search.  He got super excited when he learnt of their appearance in the Food Network show “You Gotta Eat Here!”.

Wildside Grill - Cod Club Sandwich

We decided to share the Cod Club Sandwich ($15) which is made with panko crusted cod fillet, shrimp, bacon, avotillo, chili mayo, onion, lettuce and tomato in a kaiser bun.

Wildside Grill - Cod Club Sandwich

It was fresh and super yummy and filled with stuff!  The cod was crispy and moist and the shrimp was bouncy.  And of course bacon makes everything better!

As for the fries, they were crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside.  We did have to season them a bit more with salt and pepper ourselves but that’s better than them being too salted, and this way we can adjust to our liking.

As it was our lunch we didn’t want to fill up too much, or else I would’ve loved to try their Oysters and Chips platter also.  And if the cod in our sandwich was any indication…their fish and chips must be unreal too!

They only have outdoor seating here underneath a pretty neat hut.  It was raining pretty profusely when we were there and I’m happy to report that it truly waterproof!  However do watch out for fresh bird poop on some of the seating…

Wildside Grill was a great find and I really hope to return to try the other stuff they have to offer!
