Hy's Steakhouse was really good. I think somewhat more expensive but good food.

Merlins which is a bar at the base of Blackcomb was awesome. Live music towards the end of the day, people standing and singing on tables like everyone knew each other. Lots of girls too. The vibe was AWESOME.........

The big thing up there were Caesars, get one at Merlin's it had a stick of bacon in it and everything. A really great drink and everyone loved them.


Moe Joes is a bar that turns into a club at night. I think almost every bar turns into a club lol. I met a bunch of Brazilian girls there and was doing my thing lol. Lots of fun again, a little bit younger scene but didn't phase me at the time, I think it was a college week.

We were up there a couple of years ago and found a couple of places on Yelp that sounded good. Both turned out to live up to the reviews.

One was Elements Urban Tapas Parlour which might not fit your description of large portions since it is a Tapas/small plates restaurant but everything we had was really good and surprisingly filling. It seems to be always busy.

the other place we ate was Pasta Lupino Gourmet which is a small family run Italian restaurant. Very popular with the locals. Portions are good, typical Italian.

Didn't go that trip but the Irish pub at the base of the lift is a good place for a post-ride beer and Irish comfort food. Also has live music.

My picks.
El furniture warehouse, whole menu is $5.
Merlins at the base of Blackcomb for Après and nachos.
Moe Joes if you want to get real loose and party (especially Sunday)

If you've never been there are a couple things you should do, even if you only stay for one drink because everybody does it:

Dustys bar at whistler creekside
Garibaldi lift company (great patio)


My three favorite places to eat on the mountain are glacier lodge, hortsmann hut, and the top of seventh heaven chair.

Finally while a bit expensive the patio at the fairmont chateau whistler is very nice and well heated, and the nachos were so good I took a picture of them on their arrival at the table.

Try Peaked Pies and Dupps burrito place on main street. Crystal lounge is cool for beers and live music or the Beacon.

I live there - in Denver the next week and heading to Love Land Sunday if anyone is keen on showing a tourist Aussie around!

Live in Seattle. Co-worker was just up there the last five days. Snow up top is decent, but down low they already have the bikes going if that is of any interest. Look at the trail map and get out as far as possible away from the newbies that should not be that far up.

As for food and drink. Just walk the village and find what looks appealing. If you want something specific then look to Yelp to help you out. It is very easy to get around. Enjoy.

I'm heading there with 4 others on March 22-29. My first time there.

We have a kitchen at our place, so we won't be eating out much to save $$$, but we will probably go out at night for some fun I'm sure.
