Whistler, it is the land of the nouveau riche. It is a place where people look to spend not to save so to find a restaurant that is cheaper then Denny's... Is saying something.

$4.95 for any dish on the menu other than the chicken wings... Is crazy. How they do it is beyond me and if they are making money on the food, then it just means every other restaurant in the world is ripping us off. I can only assume they are making all their money off the sale of booze.

The food is better than average and the portion sizes are more than adequate making the $4.95 a true bargain. We walked out of there with a $40 bill for 4 of us including drinks.

Expect to wait in line because there is obviously a number of people shuffling about Whistler who don't have gobs of cash to throw around or do look for bargains. 15 - 20+ minute waits are not uncommon. Get their before 5pm if you want to waltz right in.

I would eat there again and again just for the money I saved.

There were 8 of us- 4 adults and 4 kids and this was the perfect place for dinner. Portions were good sized- we all finished our meals but for $4.95 a meal, you can't complain. It was crowded when we went (Thurs nite) but we were seated quickly. They had 25 cent wings on Wednesday and when we walked by the line was out the door.
If you are looking for cheap eats, this is the place for you. Can't find a better bargain in Whistler. If you are looking for gourmet, try elsewhere.

Great value for money, all of the menu is $4.95. I wasn't excepting much for the price but I was pleasantly surprised. The bar is well presented and staff are attentive. Whistler can be fairly expensive so this is a great place to get a cheap meal.

The sign out front says "All meals $4.95" and you're thinking "Ok, there has to be a catch." Nope. Not even prices on the menu, except where there's an additional charge, say to add chicken or shrimp to a salad, and most of those extras were around $3. We went around 3:30 and it was about half full. I had the beef dip (shredded beef rather than shaved and really flavourful), other half had a burger, kids had chicken fingers and grilled cheese. Servings were small (come on, we are talking $4.95 here) but fair and filling. No body was hungry when we were finished. Food was all good. All in with drinks and substitutions was $35 for the four of us. Finally, a Whistler restaurant a family can afford!

We heard about this from a friend, and decided to give it a whirl. Seems too good to be true, but it isn't. We ate there yesterday and again today, and enjoyed everything we ordered. And the bill at the end was the best part!! Would definitely recommend!
