Welcome to Stickleback Eatery

Stickleback was conceived from a love of the West Coast and our incredible natural surroundings. With a natural cedar bar, a life-sized mural of Sombrio Beach and rumoured as the most beautiful patio on lower Vancouver Island, with stunning views and wildlife.

Just a short, scenic drive from Victoria and 5 minutes before downtown Sooke, Stickleback West Coast Eatery is situated on beautiful Cooper’s Cove – right beside Rush Kayak Adventures & West Coast Adventure College. We are true West Coast, with a natural cedar bar, a stunning mural of Sombrio Beach and the best patio on lower Vancouver Island. Great food at real prices — come for a paddle and burger and see for yourself, this is West Coast livin’!
