We didn't go for the large portions but you couldn't help but notice them! I actually orders off the kids menu that is open to kids of all ages. We had lunch here one day and breakfast another we were so impressed with the good food, good prices, good location and good service. Lots of variety on the menu. Service... More

Chef Big D,s seems to be popular for breakfast. Maybe there are limited places for breakfast in Squamish. There are lots of tables and a busy kichen. The food was good, but quite expensive for breakfast.

Chef Big D's is a simple breakfast and lunch restaurant in downtown Squamish. The menu is straightforward. Classic breakfast and soup/sandwiches for lunch. But of all the restaurants in Squamish, we have eaten here more than anywhere. The biggest reason is that the food is totally reliable. You get exactly what you expect every time. Not rocket science but good.

Traditional breakfast of sausage links and eggs...the cranberry toast was superb, the sausage links were large and tasty and the eggs done just right... Good service and although crowded, I found a window table right away.

Looking at some of the other negative reviews I see why we received the service we did. Terrible table service and manager was even worse to deal with. Extremely unproffesional.

Delicious breakfast!! Oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon, cooked in apple juice. Yummy!! Eggs over easy with the most delicious potato chips, and a large serving of veggies and multi grain bread. Downfall - poor services; didn't get my side of bacon, had to hound them for coffee, dirty dishes left on tables! I'd go back though, but not if I... More

On one hand I can go on and on about the food at this restaurant and how if you are in Squamish it is the best place for breakfast......or I could say "blah! Don't go there" so it doesn't get busier and harder for me to get a table :) Seriously though, best breakfast in Squamish, North Vancouver or whistler... More

Always has consistently good food. Menu is pretty much what you would expect at a place that just serves the daytime crowd. can get pretty busy on a Saturday for brunch but they manage the crowds well.

Traveling through this part of British Columbia. You must stop n Squamish. The main drag has lots of choices. This is your standard sit down and be served place.

Everyone had from breakfast to lunch, waffles, Salmon and avocado shrimp salad. All was delicious and pretty much fresh home-cooking and plenty of it.
