We were here on a Sunday morning, lots of tables available for the four of us, we sat down, got our coffees and gave our orders, and then the 20 or so people on the Harly Davidson's pulled up and came in. Their orders were taken and they all got their food before we did. We waited close to an... More

At the front there is a sign that says, "please seat yourself at the next clean and available table". No tables were clean so we waited at the front door for a few minutes. Servers passed us and nobody said hello to us. There were two servers standing chatting in the back who weren't running around, yet they also weren't... More

Neither of us liked the potatoes. They look and taste like they just slice then and deep fry them with no seasoning or anything else added. Some of mine were so well done they were like potatoe chips...

Visiting Squamish one morning we called into Big D's for a bite to eat. I had the most yummy fried egg sandwich ever (and trust me I've had a few!); it was so tasty. My wife had a 3 berry pancake stack which just hit the spot. Nice atmosphere, friendly service; all in all a great find for breakfast.

We were directed to this main street Squamish cafe by a local. After the sumptuous meals we experienced in Whistler, this was quite a contrast. However sceptical we might have been, the food here was really good and homey. We had good service & our waitress really took pride in what she was serving. Best part for me is that... More

My go to for a never fail meal! Crab cakes with poached eggs with the best potatoes is to die for. Beef dip, ceasar salads and burgers are all wonderful.

Grumpy service staff, lots of not great food. My crab cakes were frozen and shipped from Vancouver, very disappointed. And we were hungry! Quantity does not mean quality.

I was very happy in October when I moved to Squamish to discover the excellent food at Chef Big D's. I started to go fairly regularly for the Crab cakes benny and shrimp salad. I would rate the food a 10/10. It's too bad that I have had 2 really bad experiences with a server there. The last one with... More

A bit on a pricey side for a breakfast place, but the quality of food was excellent. Nice service too. They have traditional hash-browns omelettes and frittatas as well as healthie choices with salads and salmon.
