Good food in Sun Peaks

We visited Sun Peaks in the end of April. We did not find many restaurants available. Powder Hounds was of the few. Good atmosphere, few people. Nice people serving. We have Beef Stroganoff with Linguine. Excellent. The portion was good to share. Good wine selection. Good fine price.

Excellent food served in a lovely atmosphere. Staff were friendly. One of the best restaurants we visited on our trip to Canada.

Our party of four was treated to an exceptional dinner this evening. The Hunter Schnitzel with spaetzle and cabbage was outstanding. The stroganoff was given a great review as well. The real surprise was an avocado and tomato salad with a pineapple & habanero salsa; it wasn't spicy but rather sweet, although the flavours worked well together. Our server, Shaun,... More

I have eaten here 4 times over the last 5 years. Each time I have ordered the hunter schnitzel (I know most of the other reviews say the same thing, sorry for the broken record...) but it is excellent, and the portion is HUGE! Honestly, I don't know if that red stuff was cabbage or beets, but I ate it... More

We liked to food. Large portions, the Hunter Schnitzel is one of the things Powder Hounds is known for. It was delicious. Over the following days we bumped into others who had eaten there. Whenever you mention the name Powder Hounds, others say "Hunter Schnitzel", then gave us a high five. They had a two piece band playing classic rock... More

We had high hopes regarding this restaurant due to reports on Trip Advisor. A large variety of choices on the menu but our meals were very average, my dish was over salted, a large serving but made up mostly of potatoes, I'm sure at least 8 (small) on the plate, which I could not eat. My companion had been looking... More

We just spent 6 nights in Sun Peaks. This was the only place we had dinner twice at. I think this was the best run place in Sun Peaks. They take their business very seriously and work hard to provide a great experience. That is why it is packed when other places are empty. One night I had the Wiener... More

Server seemed a little put out that I wanted to eat light that night. Food was just average. Very noisy when it filled in with diners, especially when live music started.
