Known for its Schnitzel - casual atmosphere

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... read 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 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.

The restaurant owner/manger was most pleasant when I made the reservations. He asked how our day of skiing was. There was an early bird special. The meal was well presented, great flavor for the German schnitzels offered. We were grateful to have large portion to have for dinner the next night. I asked for a cocktail menu. He gave me...

Excellent quality food, but just too big a portion!! Had mussels for starters - delicious, then Hunter Schnitzel for main - again delicious, but HUGE!. I wish the server had explained that for $3.50 on top of the price, you could have the meal to share. She only told us this & pointed it out on the menu when we'd... More

We visited 3 times during our 9 days in sun peaks, the food was great and the service was fast even though they were busy, on the second and 3rd visit we had the same waitress, we obviously didn't tip enough the second time as the last visit was filled with attitude, she even made the point of coming out...
