Cuisine ranges from Homemade Soups, Sandwiches, Wok & Noodle Bowls, Sushi, Fresh Pastas and Pizzas, and of course Gourmet Burgers, French Fries and much much more.

“Ski-in, ski-out. A great selection and good location”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

A very lively atmosphere. A convenient place to meet up with friends, even if you're skiing different runs. Food of all kinds - burgers, curry, pho, fish and chips, hot-dogs, sandwiches, pizza etc., something for everyone. Paying with your Edge card is very convenient - no cash needed. But its adds up if you go everyday (bowl of pho, a coke and a beer $20). If you can snag a table by the window (avoid the 12-2pm rush if you can) you (weather permitting) could have the most amazing view.

“Not inexpensive”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

i remember when the Roundhouse was indeed round, but remodeling has taken care of that. The lodge is crowded, unless you visit in the summer. The typical strategy to get a table is to circulate until you see someone getting ready to leave, slide by their table and politely ask if they are departing. Then hover. The food is OK, last time I eat I chose the mac and cheese with chorizo, my companions opted for the chile and soup of the day. Coffee is good.

“50,000 ft²”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

2 levels, multiple food stations, washrooms, village gondola load/off-load, glove warmers, telephones, business center, & Steep's Grill full service dining. Big in every sense of the word. Nice patio on level 2 with a view of the Whistler high-alpine.

“Its a warm place in a storm, but watch out for Reps”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

As with most of Whistler & Blackcomb mountain restaurants its ok, this particular one is infested by Club Intrawest reps, bugging you to buy a condo when all you want to do is relax.
Be polite & firm ! unless spending 1.5 hrs being pressured is your thing.

Food is ok, place was clean... the two times we stopped it was a blizzard out and nice and warm inside.

“Just another ski resort restaurant”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

The food at the Roundhouse Lodge is nothing special, it's not the cleanest place on Earth either, but oh well. It's fine to just take a little break and have a quick snack.
