A bit of a crazy place since it is so busy. But trust that it is busy because it is good, relatively cheap (for Whistler), and convenient in the north village.

Delicious food and a huge portion. My husband and I were in Whistler for 3 days and this was by far the best place we ate. Reasonable price, delicious generous portions!

First din in town. Arrived late and had excellent service. Spare ribs to die for. Pulled pork provided so much we had an extra din from one order. Both sides fine..broccoli and potato salad. Both were on $20 specials that included beer.

Very disappointing as the ribs and 1/4 chicken were both dry, almost like they were from earlier in the day. Our server was not attentive at all. After bringing our drinks we didn’t see her again. Would not recommend!More
