Places to Eat/Apres in Whistler

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Just wondered what opinions the board had on places for apres in Whistler, as well as places to eat. We've got a group of 6 people with ages from 26-32. Any comments would be greatly appreciated (as would any knowledge on current conditions there). Thanks!

Do a search - lots of threads asking this very same question. Cheap expensive vege meat - you ask a vague question.

Conditions are good inbounds, lot of powder backcountry

There are really too many to list. Your best bet is to just walk around the village and check everything out.

That said, one of my favorite restaraunts there is the Mongolian Grill in the Holiday Inn Sunspree

Yeah, I realize there are quite a few places for what I'm looking for. Just wondered if anyone had had some great experiences or have favorite places. I'm sure we'll spend some time roaming the village, but it's always nice to have heard that a place is good or great or have someone tell you places NOT to go.

Look at W/B website for listings,

but here's some apres/food spots for 6:
Apres: Merlin's, Black's, Amsterdam Cafe, Citta.
Food: Sushi Village, Quattro, Caramba.

- Apres -

We hit the Irish Pub next to the Blackcomb Gondola. I'm having a total bit of brain fog at the moment and cannot remember the name of it. Fish and chips so often hits the spot after a day on the mountain.

- Dinner -

Sushi Village is a definite if you like sushi. I'd recommend reservations, though, as this place can fill up very easily and result in quite the wait to get a table.

I'd also echo another recommendation for Mongolian Grill. They have excellent food and drinks. Once again, though, be prepared to wait on a table possibly.

If you don't mind spending good money on a dinner, I'd then also recommend Araxi and LaRua. Araxi is in the main village (pretty much the center of the village) and LaRua is near the Blackcomb base. Both are excellent but pricey.

Sometimes if we don't feel like footing the bill for an Araxi dinner, we'll go to dinner somewhere else and then just hit Araxi for after dinner drinks and dessert. I'd recommend reservations for both places.

Arney,
I was there for two weeks and ate out every night, i can honestly say that i did noty have a bad meal, check out the menus out front which will give you an idea of the prices.

I found booze expensive but solved that by buying from the liquor store next to the supermarket, beer and hottub was good and the beer at the brewhouse was excellant.

You can't go wrong, have a great time!

Eating places range from top (Rim Rock) to bottom (KFC, McDonalds). Everything is here. Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Mongolian, Italian, Germanic Alpine, Irish, Greek, West Coast Fusion, French, West Coast contempoary, Mexican, etc. Places don't last here if the quality is crap.

It's either the Dubliner or Dublin House... great fish-n-chips, great wings (best in the village), burgers, soup, bangers and mash (if you consider that food)... no bubble and squeak, though.

good beer, cute waitressess (ok. I'm a guy, sorry) and my irish friends feel like home there

Another vote for the Irish Pub near the Blackcomb Gondola... I think it might be the Duhblin Inn. Great daily specials... Sunday was a special from their carving plate, Tuesday was a 2 for 1 fish-n-chips...

We didn't have a bad experience at any places we ate... except for the Bavarian place. Pricey and the food was a little bland. Carambe was a little more my speed.

We also ate at an offbeat restaraunt near Creekside, not in the village... more or less along the main highway. Beer and wings for $6 as appetizers, good pasta dishes.

It's the Dubh Linn Gate pub and they even have a web site:

www.dubhlinngate.com

Great Guinness-and-crab soup! The Dubh Linn burger isn't bad, either...

Thanks to everyone for your opinions and suggestions. Based on what everyone is saying, I'm sure we'll hit the Dubh Linn Gate and probably check out the Mongolian Grill as well. If anyone has other opinions or suggestions, feel free to leave them. Thanks, again!

I agree with everyone has to say. It's hard to go wrong. But, I recommend making reservations in advance for wherever you decide to go. It definitely cuts the wait time down.
post #15 of 22
I'd go to the South Side Deli. It's across the highway from the Creekside lifts. Good food, not too expensive. Very unpretentious..a local's place.

Merlins - Blackcomb base. Their Nacho Mountain has to be eaten. Excellent Apres Ski
Thai One On - Blackcomb. Pretty good restaurant.
The Dubh - mmm beer. The finest pint of the black stuff west of the Lee.
Longhorn - good apres bar, and some of the waitresses give massages as well.
GLC - another good apres bar
Sushi Village - Excellent food. (Badrat's ex almost knocked me out there with a viscious right hook, simply because I was the nearest man)
Buffalo Bills - good bar later in the evening.

There's a few others I could take you to, but can't remember their names.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll take everything into account (as well as the rest of the group's tastes) and we'll see what we can find. I guess the big thing is to make sure we get reservations at some of the better places or arrive early.

Monk's Grill

Hmmm.. I'm worried. I planned on a nice dish of Jaegermeisfter prawns....Has Monk's Grill changed hands?? Planned 1 nice dinner there...

I usually stop in at Earl's for dinner, and we ate at a good Spanish Tapas place last time which I would return to.

Earl's is good for a big group too, if you make reservations.

Arney --
I was in Whistler last month and we ate at several places, but you haven't talked about what price range you're interested in.

Nevertheless, my favorite place -- and others here have posted it -- RIMROCK.
And every local I talked to said it was their favorite as well. But you absolutely must have a reservation and you absolutely must make it ASAP. Call tomorrow!
Take me with you!

In terms of a price range, we've only got one member of our group that we'd have to worry about. He's just out of college, so we can't go hitting all the big money places (although I'd love to). I hear nothing but great things about Rimrock, so we may have to coerce our buddy into heading there for one night. I'll make the reservation for 7 so you can join us, Cryptica. hahaha

Thanks for the invitation, arney! No problem here springing for my share of dinner. It's the ol' airfare to get there that's a problem. Oh, by the way -- I'm not sure anybody posted it, but RIMROCK isn't in the Village itself. You have to drive to it or take a taxi. About 10-15 minutes'ish, depending on where you are. So be sure to allow extra time for that.
