    We went for the Victoria Dine Around 3 course meal. We all (4 of us) thought the quality, flavour and value was really good. Only complaint (and it is an important one) was that none of the food was HOT. We had 3 steak dinners and one pasta from the dine around. We want to go back, but are hoping that this long term establishment starts the practice of serving meals on heated plates. It makes all the difference! Thank you for offering such delicious meals for this event. The $35 price tag offered great value for what we ate.

    We went to the sticky wicket for dinner with friends during dine around Victoria. We had the 3 course meal and it was great, my steak was cooked perfectly. The creme brulee was delicious.

    Drinks are watered down, food is small portions and cheap, service is completely slow but when you do get service it’s fine. We got kicked out 20 minutes before New Year’s Eve probably because we weren’t buying the overpriced watered down “alcohol”

    Our group went specifically to watch the Thursday night NFL game only to find out after we got there that they would be putting the hockey game on the big screen so we ended up leaving. Had I know this before hand we wouldn't have bothered to come down specifically to the games room. Apparently that is a policy for you guys and you should advertise that on your website so that customers are aware. Our server was excellent and even talked to the bartender on our behalf and we were told its your policy to show "BC sports" on tv which I don't think is a policy for any pub but more of a preference.

    The food and ambiance was good, but they need a new root beer brand (did not taste like normal root beer) and a new tarter sauce recipe (all you can taste is dill).

    We had a table for 7 people after a movie. We were promptly seated at a great table. Our server was on the ball and easy going about some people wanting extra ice. The food was really great. We had a super experience and will definitely be back. Thank you!

    My food was okay; The Big Quesa did not live up to the description and salsa was bland. My wife's burger was good. I think the pizza did not meet expectations of my friend but his wife's Baja bowl was good I think.

    Had a lovely time with our friends after my wedding there. Had some food and drinks, just had a good time overall. One server moved us to an area more private with more seating since we had people coming in and our to by us newlyweds drinks. The server in our new area was very considerate and really engaging, laughing with all of us.

    During Victoria's "Dine Around" event, six of us chose Sticky Wicket Pub for their Steak and lobster dinner complete with appetizer and dessert. I requested a quiet area when I booked the reservation. We were seated in a small alcove off the main restaurant, a perfect spot. Our server was delightful and accommodated our every wish. Our meal exceeded expectations. The steak and lobster were both generous portions and attractively presented with vegetables. This pub will go on my favourites list.

    Good food, decent beer and wine selection and great service. Gets noisy after about nine - more music pumped out speakers so less pleasant for chilling and chatting with friends.

    Once we got service, it was awesome, but the time from sitting down at our reserved table to when we were finally approached was a little long. That said, when our server arrived she was top notch. Our drinks and food orders came quickly, however one order was mixed up, a very clear order for keto burger without bun and salad instead of fries came as a regular burger.

    Sadly the food was not up to previous visits. The dry porks ribs were ok but the seafood pasta was bland and greasy. My table mate did enjoy his bread less steak sandwich, but it didn’t come with the cheese as ordered. The staff however were top notch. In short ambiance and staff are great but the kitchen output needs some work.

    First we were seated at a table right next to the sports bar, which was incredibly noisy. We asked to move and were then seated in a quieter area. We were served glasses of non-cold water and then waited a good half hour for service. My wife finally trapped a bus boy who found us a waiter. Once she appeared, everything was fine, and up to our usual expectations. She explained that they had a few staff not show up for work that day, and we got lost in the service shuffle. Her service and the food were both flawless.

    We had the three course “dine around” menu and it was excellent. Cooked just right and tasty. Our server was thoughtful and attentive. We had gone to watch the Canada vs El Salvador soccer match on their big screen and they kept the volume down until the match started and then raised it just the right amount so we could hear but not be deafened. Altogether a super pleasant night out.

    Out of the three course dinner, in my opinion only the first course, beet salad, and the lobster in the second course are worth mentioning. The beet comes in chunks on the salad with various leafy greens, roasted nuts, and marinated roots. Dressing of it comes in a container for diners to top. Lobster is cooked to perfect and deshelled. My friend’s dessert came missing a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Apparently the kitchen had it written differently but our waiter went to the kitchen and backed up by the description on menu for diners.

    We had friend from the mainland visiting and our group had 4 adults and 3 minors. Love that the Sticky Wicket has an area not only inside but upstairs on their lovely rooftop patio were we decided to plant ourselves last minute. The staff were very accommodating, we had one of our group members in a wheelchair and they had an elevator she could come up to the rooftop on. The service, food and timing was all good and drinks were great! Perfect place on a sunny afternoon... even rooftop beach volleyball court
