Zogs has got to be the worst shit you could ever eat and overpriced for what it actually is. I used to live across the road from splitz was so good but so bad haha

I mostly ate Subway and Opa! when I was in Whistler. At least you know what you're getting and the prices aren't too different from back home.

LOL!
this thread is hilarious. People are bitching about the food in whistler and they are basing it on their experience at KFC, Burritos, hot dogs and a list of shitty pubs you can find anywhere in north america.

Here is where I eat and I always have a memorable meal and Im picky as fuck.

Rimrock - Pure awesome for dinner and great atmosphere.

Quatro - Try the spaghetti quattro, might be the best spaghetti you have ever had.

Hys Steak House - Always consistent great steak

Grill Room (new steak house at the Fairmont) - Dont diss this unless you have tried it. I was so surprised at the quality of the steak id list it in the top 3 I've had.

Here are a couple of places to avoid at all costs which are supposed to be "good", but are shite.

Araxi - Dont go no matter how tempted. Looks nice from the outside. Last time I went both myself and my friend sent both our plates back, got a new plate and simply said we would leave based on what the brought back.

Bearfoot Bestro - Good but its a tourist trap you will pay 3xs the price for half the quality of the meal you get at the rimrock.

Cant comment on the pubs because I dont eat at them..im sure they all suck like every other pub. I love a good burger though and will admit the one in this thread looks good.

I'm sure most people on this forum, myself included would not be eating at those places most of the time seeing as they are the most expensive restaurants in town.

I'm surprised with your comment about Araxi, I had the $30 5 course special in the spring time for a friends dinner and it was amazing.

I think that the food on the hill at whistler is far above ski resort standard - Glacier creek lodge has an amazing selection of food, compared to the crappy cafeteria fare that you get at most ski places.

If you have dough to spend you can eat very well in the village of course, as our supertuscan friend points out above. I found the sushi places were pretty good and not too crazy pricewise, and I remember getting a super sized plate of nachos at an irish pub. There's a milestone's there now too, which is a cut above your typical pizza pasta type place.

If you're budget conscious i'd say your best meal of the day will be a hearty lunch at Glacier lodge, and at night you should make your own meal or and spend all remaining cash on beer. Or start with the beer and then you won't care so much about the food quality if you have an inebriated dinner of chicken wings at 10 pm.

I've had some great food in Whistler and definitely some subpar food, but the one truth I've found to hold true from place to place and throughout the year is the service sucks ass.

OK, guess i missed the point of the thread. There was just talk about no memorable food, or in general no places that served good food.

As far as your experience im sure t could have been great. At one point it was a really good spot, but it has gone down hill recently, and in my opinion hit rock bottom. Its rare I ever send food back, but as you know its fairly pricy so i dont have a problem sending back a $30 plate of food if its not near perfect. Seriously the steak i ordered was about as good as something you would get at the olive Garden or spaghetti factory.

What whistler does lack thou IMO is a good, healthy fast food type of place.

BTW...the spaghetti i recommended at Quattro is only like 20 bucks or something and it might be my favorite all around meal up there.

BTW if you want nachos...the ones they serve at the fairmont at ridicules. Awesome!
