We were pleasantly surprised when we found this little diner. We prefer to patronize small local business. We had their bacon cheese deluxe burgers. The fresh made meat definitely fresh not frozen was delicious as were the the hand cut fries which by the way...More

We had ate here previously for a quick bite and burgers but decided to try it for a family dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and there was nothing left on anyones plate which is kiddos to the chef! Will definitely return!

I stopped by for breakfast. The service was very good and the food was excellent. I would recommend this diner for breakfast or lunch for sure. I have never had dinner here.

Once I get the family on the lifts I head over to the Southside Diner for breakfast - hard to go wrong with scrambled eggs & bacon, whole wheat toast and spuds. Friendly and usually busy for a good reason. Interesting place to meet travellers...More

My friends and I had lunch here today, it was delicious but the awesome theme was what struck me the most. It was like walking in to 1960's American diner. Definitely would recommend to visit while in whistler!

Had the bacon cheeseburger deluxe and it was really average, I don't think I'll order it again just to try other stuff in the menu, but the fries for sure will make me come back. I really want to try them in a Poutine!

We wanted a nice quick place for breakfast. The Southside Diner foot the bill. Don't expect five star food, but you do get a good hearty breakfast. The servers are nice with a smile and coffee.
