If you're in Whistler you'll end up at the GLC at least once. Its ok. Service is efficient, but not especially friendly. Beers are pretty good, food isn't. The fries are gross! Value for money is lacking, just like Whistler!

Located right at the base of Whistler Mountain GLC is a perfect lunch or Apres spot. Great food - great staff - great place to people watch. Good atmosphere as always filled with skiers and boarders re-living the days events. Make sure you visit!!

We go to GLC several times a visit as it's a great meeting place is you are biking and the food and drink specials are great! Love the gorgonzola fries especially! Considering they have one of the best locations they have kept the quality up too!

Fun place to grab a drink after a great day skiing. Not quite as loud or big as a couple of other places at the foot of the gondolas but has a fantastic atmosphere. DJ's spinning great tunes and delicious snacks. Try a glass of one of their local brews.

wow a double bloody ceasar and large bowl of french onion soup! sit outside and enjoy. You are literally outside on the slopes. Inside there are jumbo t.v. screens and it is all about snowboarders in the powder! Great expereince, at night kids under 18 can not get in after 8 oclock. So eat early and enjoy

8 of us had lunch between our ski runs. The portions were decent. The nachoa were huge. Not cheap but that's what you'd expect at Whistler given its location. Long wait for food given it was so busy.

Garibaldi Lift Company has a great patio with a view toward the base of Whistler mountain and the bottom of the bike trails. At lunch, there was lots of activity to watch with the bikers completing their runs. Lunch was very good - pulled pork sandwich with a green side salad and a beer. For dinner, there was no dinner...
