The Bull Wheel is located in the same building as the White Crystal Mountain Inn. It is a fairly new restaurant which recently replaced the previous one. I ate breakfast at the bar. The food was mediocre and the menu was limited. Although the server was nice I did got the impression I was an inconvenience. (On one occasion I... More

After staying at big white for the whole season I've constantly found myself at The Bullwheel after a big day in the powder. Love having lunch and dinner here. Staff and the owners are always polite and helpful.

Bullwheel is the perfect place to come straight from skiing/snowboarding, straight to the door. Beers with happy hour are cheapest on the mountain. The view is beautiful especially at sunset, and if it's sunny you can sit out on the deck around the fire. The serves always go out of their way to make your experience delightful. I would recommend... More

Walked in and greeted with a big old smile, this place has fantastic food and service! Such a wide range of local bc beers and wine. The bullwheel burger with its bacon jam is "the bees knees" will definitely be returning for the loving atmosphere.

Cheap frozen fries straight from a Safeway frozen foods freezer . Canned gravy and something resembling cheese curds . The Sticky duck wings were average and badically just deep fried wings... More

Went there with 3 friends. 2 people had the burger and fries which tasted like a frozen dinner from Costco. 1 person had the Flatbread which seemed pretty good. Poutine with pulled chicken was basically Mcaine frozen fries with luke warm gravy and a few cheese curds. Cocktails were a little off. Place basically felt like a cafeteria with waiter... More

We are here during March break and were disappointed with the slow service and very rich heavy food. It took about an hour for the food to arrive. That was after we searched hard for something healthy to eat as the choices included deep fried calimari, poutine and nothing like grilled fish and veggies - something healthy skiers should have...

Visited this restaurant several times during our stay at big white for both lunch and dinner. We were greeted by a friendly host both times and shown to our seats. We sat on the restaurant side one time and the bar side the next. The staff were friendly and tentative and the food was delicious. I had the carbonara for... More
