Had an order of eggs benny come with harder than soft boiled eggs served to me . Upon being asked to replace my order with soft boiled eggs , the server decided to atgue with me about the eggs . After 15 minutes , the...replacement order came . But the replacement was just the eggs done properly . It was up to me to switch the eggs , which were covered in hollandaise sauce . If you made a burger wrong , would youjust replace the meat patty in the burger ? I talked to the owner of Chef Bif Ds , and she was quite happy abd resolved , that this was a proper way to deal with my order . Needless to say I Chef B Ds was a Great Disappointment . I will not be going back , and also will not be advising anyone to dine there .More

Super cute local café. Our food came out of the kitchen fast, hot, and fresh. Our server was super sweet and kept our coffee/tea full. My husband had the Mountain Man breakfast and I had the crab cake eggs benny.

Driving back from whistler, heading back home. Saw ratings on google and decided to try it. We stopped off to have late breakfast, got all the orders at our table wrong. The bacon was overcooked and rock hard. Avocado tastes like it had gone off...and had brown spots. Hash brown was sliced potatoes that would of been ok but it was cooked too long so it was just hard as well. Toast and eggs were ok. I do not recommend this place. Our waiter was incompetent but one of the other staff members seems nice and friendly.More

We stopped in at lunchtime and had to wait a short while for a table to be covid-19 cleaned and sanitized...a good reason to wait! The restaurant is keeping with covid protocols and the tables are nicely spaced. The staff are masked and everything sanitized....We shared a turkey sandwich for lunch and it was absolutely delicious. The turkey (all white meat) was from a roasted bird, not fake pressed meat, and the trimmings were great. The cranberry bread was a nice touch and the homemade fries were hot and crispy. We bought a fresh scone to go and enjoyed it later in the day. This is a nice place to eat a casual meal while visiting Squamish.More

Stumbled upon this on our way to whistler. They properly sanitized our table promptly, and sat us.Hubby had the beef dip sandwich which was piled high and delicious, I had the Montreal smoked meat sandwich, which was fantastic, piled high ,fresh, with sauerkraut and spicy...mustard. The service was so friendly and attentive, my only complaint was that I didnt leave room for the awesome looking pastries displayed !!! We will come back for sureMore

You must eat here! Best food!!! Frequent visits! I’ve already reviewed Big D’s before but it deserves a second! Everyone we travel to Whistler we always stop in Squamish and we ALWAYS go to Big D’s. Visiting in August we sat outside to eat and...as always, staff were super wonderful and the food was amazing. I love the fried egg sandwich and I always love to see people’s reactions to how big the breakfast sandwiches are when you can tell it’s their first time ordering! The sliced potatoes though.....yummmmMore

We drove up and down Cleavland Ave. tryng to decide where to stop for lunch and we decided on Chief Big D's and boy did we make the right decision. Starting with the excellent service, our order was taken quickly and the food arrived in...record time. Next, the food... I wish I had waited a minute to take a photo but it just looked so good we dove right in. WOW I'm not sure I know enough adjectives to describe it but her are a few: fresh, flavourful, hot, well presented & eye appealing, generous, and just darn AWESOME. We had the beef dip and the Chefs Club on our choice of bread which was cranberry sourdough. I saw many people with take-away containers and when we received our meal I understood why. If it weren't for the fact that I shared the club, I would have had a second meal as it was so generous. My brother had the beef dip and there was so much meat with just the right amount of garlic and the au jus was perfectly seasoned. Next time you pass through Squamish make sure you stop at Chief Big D'sMore
