Good Value for Money

Great ribs, amazing maple chicken wings, and awesome burger. Portion sizes were huge and great value for money. Service was fab, and the bar had a great atmosphere.

The Village Idiot is clearly not run by idiots. You can't find the sort of "old skool" ski bum ambiance like this in many ski towns. And it is real, not the ersatz stuff you find in the big resorts. A recent quick trip passing through Revelstoke landed us in for a quick bite before setting off on the road... More

Stopped in after our last day on the slopes for the year, the soup was amazing, so flavourful! The mussels of the week were fantastic! Topped off with a fabulous pasta meal. Couldn't ask for anything better, well except for the Idiotade. Fresh squeezed fruit and flavoured vodka. Awesome place to end your day!

A great bar... total ski bum ambience! Fun decor. Enjoyed a very nice club sandwich on garlic ciabatta bun with a poutine side. Would definitely go back when passing through the area.

If you find yourself solo in Revelstoke and looking for some food and conversation, this is your place. Grab a seat at the bar and the bartenders will make you feel like long lost friends instantly. The customer service here is amazing and it goes to show why the place is full when the rest of town is empty on... More

We were in Reveltoke for five nights, and after the first night got stuck to the Village idiot. Because of the food (the gluten free pizza is delicious!). Because of the staff. Because of the atmosphere. Judging by the crowds we weren't the only ones. Come early or reserve a table on weekends even during a slower season.

Visited twice during our Revelstoke visit. Once for dinner.... Menu is quite diverse with many healthy options. While known for pizza, we got entrees, which were good. There was a very large group and we waited quite a bit for our food to come out, but server was apologetic and gave us a discount on our food. Hockey was on... More

Fantastic setting - cool bar with lots of action and very good food. It's like finding that first powder run of the day - and being a powder pig. Nice selection of beer - great burgers and pizza that was awesome. If you come to Revelstoke for powder - you better stop here!

Weird menu. Can't decide what it wants to be when it grows up. I've heard raves about pizza but the rest is kinda meh- appies have no interesting options, expect a sandwich or burger or plain old ordinary regular food you can make at home. Food is ordinary but I guess the few hippie / granola options make it appealing... More
