Whistler 1st timer

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Going on my honeymoon to Whistler in Feb. Need some ideas on where to go for food. We are not into fancy restaurants or wine. We enjoy a good brewery and a good beer, with a good hamburger or steak. Restaurants off the beaten path would be great. We don't like to party like rock-stars. We are staying in the upper village for a week.
p.s. I looooove to shop, so if you could point ME in the right direction in whistler as well...... many thanks

There's a brew pub in the village and more places to eat than you can shake a stick at. Just wander around and you'll find lots of places. If you love to shop then you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.

Sushi-Kaze Sushi in the Weston, by the Salomon store, to the right of the Whistlr Gondola, through the little road "roundabout"
Splitz for cheap burgers,
Brewhouse for beer's and pub grub.
Ricks grill for Steak, but a bit pricey.
Merlins for Apres.
In the upper village "Thai on One", great thai, not exotic, but not delivery style as well, get the "set menu" for great value.
Ski shopping-Fanatyk Co, great boot fitters (ask for Mark, besides a boot fitter he's a level 4),great rentals as well.
Good value come Feb, and usually the weather is a little on the sunny side.
Anymore questions, drop me a PM I just moved out of Whistler after 9 years.

I second the Kaze Sushi "nomination". We almost didn't go there until I got a recommendation from a local. Its a small unassuming place that has excellent food.

The best bar in Whistler is the boot.

"The Boot", torn down, along with the Shoestring Lodge, closed April 06,
Kaze sushi, make sure to actaully talk to "Tokyo Tom" (sushi chef) actally a Level 4 instructor, tons of great stories, and take the time to check out the autograph's that surround the top of the sushi bar, and then take a look around the room, you would be suprised who could be sitting beside you.

I finally tried MOngolie Grill on my last trip out. all previous times - the lines were too long for me to wait.

Overhyped !!!! Not only do you have to stand in line outside to get in but you have to stand in another line to pick up your food and grilled. very inefficient. you will easily pay over $25 without drinks and its not great.

I like Monk's grill though - at Blackcomb base.
