“Great value, food and service”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The waitress was very friendly and great with kids. Good kids menu and for adults as well. Meals came very quickly after ordering even though the restaurant was getting busy. Just across the road from the Delta Residence which was great.

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Food at Powder Hounds is very good and the service, especially from the bar tender is excellent. Primarily German menu with large portions, served hot and quickly. Could benefit from a larger selection of draft beers although you can try a sample of the 5 or 6 they have on tap.
I had the strogonoff and my buddy, the schnitzle which were both with home made spatzels, all excellent. Lots of restaurants at Sun Peaks, many not so good, this one is one of the best.

We have a condo in Sun Peaks and eat at Powder Hounds several times per year. Food has been consistently great with huge portions at reasonable prices! The Weiner schnitzel and hunter schnitzel are excellent. Best value in Sun Peaks!

“If you like salt...”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

We recently returned from our annual Sun Peaks ski vacation. We had dinner at Powder Hounds. If you like salt, then you will like Powder Hounds. I had a caesar salad. Let me just say it was overloaded with dressing! I also ordered the mushroom soup. Very salty indeed and didn't taste anything like mushroom soup, but more like salt. My son ordered spaghetti and meatballs. Again, more salt. He didn't even finish the meal. What 18 year old boy doesn't finish a meal after snowboarding all day? My husband ordered the Hunter Schnitzel. Again, so loaded with salt it was not good. All in all, a very disappointing meal.

“Yum”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

Fun menu, flexible staff and they let you reorganize the tables for big groups without fussing! Perfect for fun. Great wine as well.
