You could be thinking of the Brewhouse. It's just on the other side of a little bridge and serves ribs.

Speaking of food on the hill, the Horstmans Hut up on Blackcomb is pretty awesome. A bit pricey but perfect food for a snow day... or any winter day. Just makes so much sense. "Stews, European Style, hearty home-style fare and a BBQ on the patio". Stew, smoked meats and cheese with crusty bread is a pretty good lunch if you ask me! Although give it an hour before any serious riding after that. Possibly the most spectacular location for a restaurant i've been to.

I wouldn't expect much as far as apres ski food in Whistler. The base area is a tourist trap where the restaurants know there will be a ton of people who just want something fast to eat because they just came off the hill. "Apres" in my mind is "Yo, I'm starving. Get me something quick in a place I can chill" as opposed to "I'm looking for decent food."

There are some cool actual restaurants in the town but not really places I'd go with snowpants on. People do it in a lot of restaurants anyway but I want to show a little respect for places that try to have even a slightly classier vibe them. If that's what you're looking for - something that will serve an actual dinner - I can suggest some.

My idea of "apres" is PB&J in the parking lot so this isn't my area of expertise.

The typical good places are Longhorn at whistler base (skiers plaza) and Merlins at Blackcomb base. Longhorns is a favorite of mine.. it's all regular pub food but the patio is huge, has tons of heaters, music is going, and a shooter bar outside when you first walk in to the patio. A great place to chill, grab some quick food and a few beers after a day on the hill.

When it's busy or we want something a little nicer, walk down to Cinnamon Bear Bar downstairs in the Hilton. Nice place, some nice big chairs/couches, good food, and reasonable prices. If there's hockey or football on after we are done we head here to grab food and catch the game.

Good call on Cinnamon Bear. However, I have seen it pretty packed as it seems like a place the "locals" (i.e. youngsters that are living is Whistler for a little while) like to hang out.

Just got back from a 6 night stay in Whistler. We were lucky enough to have fresh powder all six days. As for the food, my partner is a total foodie so we ended up going to some pretty expensive places. Araxia lives up to its reputation -- great wine, great food. I think I had venison there that was super tender. Trattoria di Umberto has excellent pasta. They had a salmon cake appetizer special that was off the hook. On the regular menu, the linguini di mare really hit the sweet spot for us since we were craving pasta that night. The other spot we hit on a whim was the Rim Rock Cafe. By that point in our trip our credit cards were really starting to hurt so we just went with beers instead of vino -- which turned out great cuz they have an extensive local beer selection. The food was good too. For all three restaurants however, like someone above said -- it's good, but for the amount you're paying, you'd expect practically 2 michelin star quality. Maybe twenty years of global warming from now you'll find more reasonable prices in Whistler. As for now, two years after hosting the winter olympics, expect to spend a coupla Gs during a week-long stay.

I didn't get a chance to check out Cinnamon Bear but I will next time I go. Dups Burritos are really good - I would def recommend that place for a bite.

Also, I recommend Granville Honey Lager as a good local beer.

Splitz was awesome! I was there last year. We found this small deli that I can't remember the name. It was very close to the Marketplace IGA. Walk out the door and go to the right. It's in the corner of the building next to it. I had there great homemade stew and bread. Good price for Whistler too.
