Great food and service

A thoroughly enjoyable meal with excellent service, large quantities and very tasty food. The prices are quite reasonable considering the quality of the food and resort location. We'll be back for more!

My family stays for a week every summer in Sun Peaks. We always have a dinner at Powder Hounds. It has a sunny deck area and if you are there for dinner between 5pm and 6pm you can have your schnitzel dinner at a discount. The schnitzel with mushroom sauce is a family favorite. The portions are always generous and... More

We've been long time visitors to Sun Peaks for well over a decade. Every visit we consider expanding our horizons, but keep coming back. Peter and his team do a great, consistent job and we have no hesitation to recommend, and probably should have well before. Karen's our favourite server, don't hesitate to ask to split a meal - they... More

Read a blurb in the local newsletter about this place and made a reservation (a must on concert nights!). Excellent food, good wait staff (Karen), and live music that had the place hopping until closing time. Have already made reservations for our return trip in August!

Everything is walking distance from the hotels...this restaurant was recommended by the hotel for its schnitzel. It delivered. It's a casual place with a TV on near the bar. No complaints, except that night they didn't have red cabbage, but the veggies they substituted were great.

Not impressed at all. Had the hunter schnitzel, browned to the point of being tough. Spätzle was greasy. Red Cabbage was good. The service wasn’t not invested at all. The server didn’t come to check on if the meal was alright. Calling out for table pickups in the restaurant was disruptive. The server saying at the end that my uneaten... More

We visited Sun Peaks between seasons so a lot of the restaurants were not open. We saw this one while exploring the village and decided to have dinner there. Luckily we went early as a lot of other people had the same idea. You should really book. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was excellent and the... More

Having wandered round Sun Peaks in vain looking for a place with somebody in it, we went in Powder Hounds for a drink as there were other customers, and the music was good! Shaun the bartender recommended her Chocolate Mint Mojito, so we had them; so refreshing with the homegrown chocolate mint. A great concoction! Seeing as the cocktails were... More
