Great atmosphere and incredible location right by the slopes. Our server Bella was very helpful and attentive. The wings are particularly good. Would definitely reccomend to anyone especially after a days skiing.

We were on the patio for Apres around 2:30. Our reso was for 12 people and they sat us at a table with 10 chairs. We ended up only having 10 people so, it was fine, but how did they know that when we did...not inform them? An over-packed patio seemed to be their plan from the start. As soon as the drinks start flowing and the DJ starts playing, there is a club-like atmosphere created outside. This sounds great, however, every table on the patio is reserved, all with a pre-purchased package of a min of $2,400. We, 10 girls, were told we had 3 hours to spend the $2,400 which is hard to accomplish without getting wasted. They heavily push the alcohol and are not concerned about how much food a table has ordered. I'm fairly sure there is a liquor law against this, but looking around, there were tables with endless bottles and no food at all. Further, the patio was SO packed, you couldn't even move! People were dancing everywhere and it's like they encouraged people to dance on their chairs which seems confusing. Why you'd encourage wasted people to get up on your furniture and dance is beyond me. I don't know how this place hasn't experienced endless court cases against them for negligence or disobeying liquor laws. The more I looked around, the more I was disgusted by their business plan, of getting people wasted at 3 PM, making endless money, and not seeming to care about the state of people. To the point where my friend asked if we could close our bill and shut it down, and the waitress said we had $50 left and pushed shots on us! My friend reluctantly agreed stating "ok, we'll get the shots, but make them light, and bring them to me and I will divey them out". They did not give the shots to my friend to divey out, and of course, handed the first shot to the bride, who already drank way too much and ate no food. The only staff who seem to care about the state of people are the wellness staff they have patrolling the bathroom to make sure they get anyone puking, out of their establishment safely. I appreciate these staff members a LOT, especially if they're there for a precaution. But Longhorn knows that's not the case, they are not there for a precaution, they are necessary!! Not to mention, the bathroom is a popular public bathroom. We have people who are blacked out at 5 PM, trying not to get sick in public, and kids trying to pee after skiing - is anyone else seeing how messed up this picture is? Further, not a single table could drink their tab and as such, tables start purchasing champagne to spray with a gun. I kid you not, every 30 seconds champagne is getting sprayed in your face and on your clothes. I'm not sure who enjoys this, but I don't, nor am I going to enjoy my dry cleaning bill. I could not enjoy my time here. People's lives were in danger for the sake of forcibly creating a "party atmosphere"and making money. The whole set up made me feel so gross and uncomfortable. Takeaways: - The food is terrible - The atmosphere is for 20-25 yr olds - They do not care about your well-being - They do not obey BC liquor laws - They do not care about anyone's comfort - They are not there to ensure you drink responsibly They are there to make money. They are a money-making machine, making money off people's inhibitions. I hope the owner is proud.More

I brought my friends here, from the city for apres! And Tori and Ellie were absolute, incredible stand outs! They treated us so so well that my friends are STILL talking about how amazing it was and what a “local” experience they felt they had....They won’t stop bothering me about when we are going to go to Longies again, so looks like we will be seeing ya again soon!! Thank you so so so much to Tori and Ellie! Superstars!More

Great spot for a quick bite to eat and some beers in Whistler. Prices were a little pricey, but definitely on the cheaper end for Whistler. Service was attentive and food was good.

We ordered an appetizer a burger and three margaritas at lunch today. We learned upon receiving the bill that our total was $220. The waitress gave us three choices of tequila for our margaritas. We were not aware she added an $18 per margarita. We...were also charged double the menu price for add one such as the bacon for a burger. Ouch! We feel scammed and would not visit again.More

Pretty worn looking place, sticky dirty tables and carpet that looked like it just needed a vacuum. Food less than average with more than average prices. Begrudged paying 18% tip for lousy service. Had to ask for cutlery, “on the side” requests were forgotten and...no offer to refill drinks.More

Patio was busy but not packed like it can be. Music was great. Service was ok … staff standing around chatting and had to flag down server. Food was tasty as was the raspberry margarita. Understanding that it is prime location to people watch we...understood prices would be higher but $49.50 for nachos and $22 for a cocktail is a bit steep. Wouldn’t mind paying the premium if the service was great and the place was clean. Patio is filthy and interior of restaurant is worn and dirty. A wash down of the tables would be nice too… weeks worth of food residue and hair in the cracks of table tops ….More

I've been coming to Whistler for 5 years now. I always wanted to do apres in longhorns, but when I visit, the place is packed (at least the sundeck is). However, this time we came later in the season and decided to do apres skiing...at Longhorns regardless, since the DJ sounded awesome and we saw that it wasn't too busy. No issue getting a table on the sundeck, however waitresses passed us several times before I made comment and waved my hands heavily to get someone's attention. I did notice some of the waitresses would suddenly rush out of the back and screeched when they would see their friends coming into the bar (this happened twice). When our drinks came, my wife's drink came back lame. She ordered a spicy margarita, but they didn't make it spicy and tasted weak in flavor and liquor. No big deal, we kept on and just enjoyed the views and ordered some food. Wings were just OK (looked like frozen wings reheated), the burger was actually good, but the drinks kept coming back awful. I think this place is perfect for just grabbing a few beers, people watch a little and move on. Forget staying longer, and ordering the mixed drinks. They were expensive. I mean very expensive. I hear you is Whistler and you have the best spot in the village, but come on now!! Anyways, you are not going to this place to chill, chill. You are only coming here to pose your Instagram photos and enjoy expensive everything for the privilege of sitting on the sundeck. Oh, and if you complain, management's answer is (We have many customers that enjoy, Blah blah blah, Please!!). I'll continue to explore the other venues that have given us more respect and better service. I'll give Longhorn a pause for now.More
