Stumbled upon this place heading back up to Whistler. An independent place with a great breakfast menu and decent lunch choice too. We had a selection from each menu and everyone (7 in total) were happy. They drag tables together to suit your group size and the service has a degree of local charm. There is no 'corporate' training here... More

I think we found a good value in Squamish with this restaurant. Had a very tasty Beef dip. Would go back for lunch next time I am in town.

Best place in Squamish for a breakfast and lunch. Try the hot pastrami or D's Grilled cheese or a breakfast wrap. Breakfast all day. Friendly service staff.

Breakfast is excellent but HUGE! You can get away sharing one breakfast between two people easily, (which I noticed some locals around me were doing). Especially the Mountain Man breakfast which my spouse had.

I've been here 4 times now. Three times for breakfast and once for lunch, and always with guests from out of town. I've only come back this many times because the food is very good and the location is convenient. The service has sucked every time I've been there. The servers act as if you are an inconvenience and we've... More

While on the way to Whistler we stopped at Big D's for breakfast. A couple things to consider.. There is only 1 bathroom for the entire restaurant, I had to wait in a line of 7 people just to wash my hands. Needless to say I had to wait in line again after I ate to wash my hands again... More

Chef Big D,s is a great place to eat. Its a family run place where everyone takes pride in their work. The food is excellent, well presented and the service is super. We take all of our out of town quest there for lunch and everyone leaves full and happy. It is very popular and you may have to wait... More

Busy Sunday Morning, short wait of 10min for a table. The Mountain Man breakfast was too much for me to take on, not that I wont try to again as it is so very good. Substitutions are gladly accepted, sausage rather than ham and avocado change on the eggs benny. The staff were hurried at the same time cheerful.

We got a coffee waited 10 minutes to order, 15 minutes for food (which was good). Asked for more coffee three times, then went to get our own and got that surprised look. One stall unisex bathroom for a 100 plus seat restaurant. Won't be back.
