My family enjoyed our best ski lunch here after a lovely, sunny morning skiing on the lower half of Whistler. We skiied right up to the deck, took off our skis and went in for a delicious warm lunch. And when we were done, we put our skis back on and hit the slopes again. Paradise!

The place is near the end point of our 3 day hike so we were all famished when we got in. Service was quick and pleasant, the place was undergoing expansion the time we got there. Nice place to watch bikers doing their thing. I had the beef dip, probably not the best one I've ever had but I loved... More

The food here was good, but expensive although the portions were huge. My son and I ordered the same pasta dish and, in hindsight, we should have shared the one. Also the description for the dish was incorrect - the waitress mentioned pasta with chicken in a creamy pesto sauce, what we got was that plus lots of red onion... More

Beer and Nachos go down as well in September as in February. Instead of watching skiers and snow boarders you see the crazy bikers doing same. Beers continue to be great. We tried Shock Top this time, a wheat beer with an orange twang. The obligatory nachos are a meal in themselves. A must try for this place.

Great food choices and big portions. Good selection of beers. All servers, without fail, were friendly, helpful and fun. Comfortable environment, busy enough to make you feel like you're in the right place. Great experience every time we've been (easily a couple of dozen)

Is not a cheap place to eat or have a beer, but you will have first person view of all mountainbikers (or skiers on winter) coming down from their trails, so you can check who has the best bike, the ugliest, etc, etc, etc...jajaja!!

Even with major renovations to the and restaurant - we weren't disappointed. Pemberton Beet Salad and crispy potato wedges were really good and to be able to get Turning Point Cider (BC product) was a real bonus

You know you want to, so don't kid yourself. What a great place for a beer, some pub grub and watch the downhillers within metres of your pale ale. While not fine dining, a very satisfying meal with a view. Dinner and a show!

We are mountain biking or skiing in whistler almost every weekend. My son and I always have lunch there. The staff is fantastic. They come right over and us what we want usually the same so they don't bother asking anymore. If they have the chicken curry soup on the menu , you have to try it. It is to... More

This is a fun bar for local wines and beers but also turned out to have excellent and substantial bar food... not just a tourist place. You do need to be drinking and/or eating to be allowed on the terrace but well worth it. There are lots of attractions in Whistler, not just winter sports. In summer the slopes are... More
