This place is a great stop to take a break and grab a beer, some poutine and relax. They have heat lamps on the patio to keep you warm and blankets. The staff is more than friendly.

Went there a couple of times with friends for Friday night apres. Gets pretty crowded after 3.30pm so they close the doors when this is the case. If you're into loud 70's -80's music, revellers 'dancing' on the bench and the older Australian crowd, then this is the place for you. I did go to order food but, as I... More

I had the steak pie, mash potato, peas and gravy, I went to peaked pies as well and I have to say in my opinion this was better from Merlins!! If you like nachos, Merlins have the legendary plate of nachos, my partner and I had these last season (2015/16) and we didn't even make a dent in them and... More

We stopped by here for some food and beer after a long days skiing. Friday night live band are awesome and a great way to relax after hitting the slopes. Gets loud after 3.30pm however if you're there for some post skiing drinks then it's a great place to be. Nachos were good and poutine super tasty.

We stopped for a late lunch, and the place was chaotic. We had a hard time finding a place to sit down (not many choices with our ski boots on) and equally difficult time finding our server. After we ordered, we waited for more than half hour to get our food. It was just mad chaos the whole way.

We went when the super bowl was on. The local beer was great and the nachos were fantastic. The bar does not pretend to be anything other than an apres ski bar but it does it well. It was super busy but the service was prompt and courteous.

Limited options for veggies but options that do have are soo good ! My favourite is the quesadillas . Can be really busy so if you have the options avoid peak times .

This restaurant and bar is located conveniently at the bottom of the mountain. We started to use this restaurant for a late afternoon snack and drink , following a disappointing visit to Milestones. The staff are very pleasant, the service is quick and the food is good and reasonably priced.

we went here several times during our recent rip to whistler. We had the 'famous' nachos, it was big serving but not really that tasty. the service is friendly but a little slow. I had the hot apple cider which was weak and tasteless and also the irish coffee which was mediocre. Gets very loud after 330pm.

Located right at the base of the Blackcomb, this is a great place for a quick lunch or post-ski bite. The burgers here are tall and big as your face and the gigantic nachos can fill a big bucket. Definitely a place for bring hungry friends after a good workout. The salt n pepper wings and the craft beer were... More
