“Not worth it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Unless your staying at the complex your using their guides to climb I couldn't find a reason to eat here. The people working were very friendly and nice. But the place seemed disorganized which led to long cook times. My girlfriend ordered a salad and got a burger as well as some nachos as an appetizer. You order at the counter and then pick up at a couple of different places. We received her salad first, which she completed before the nachos were called then after eating that my burger was called. It i open air cooking and dinning. Would be a good place to go for a beer after a long day of hiking and climbing.

“Best Way to End a Day on Mt Rainier and/or with RMI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Ate here a couple of times while out to climb Mt Rainier with RMI. The entire RMI/Whitaker Mountaineering complex is well run, and the Basecamp Bar & Grill is a great place to bring a day on The Mountain to a close.

The burgers are excellent. I particularly enjoyed the Jalapeno Cheese Burger. I did not try the pizza, but several members of our climbing team did, and they all commented favorably on taste and size of the pizzas received.

It also helps that Basecamp Bar & Grill has good draft beer selections! The Pt Defiance IPA was my favorite.

This bar and grill is covered, but open air, and the seating area is perfect for handling groups. Enjoy the fresh mountain air as you and friends refuel after a day of exploring, hiking, or climbing on Mt Rainier!

“Great pizza!”

The pizza was great, the beer was cold and the atmosphere was relaxed. A must after spending some time hiking about Mt. Rainier.

“This place is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

When you're looking to have your last dinner before your summit climb or celebrating your successful summit climb, this is the place to go!

Food is grilled up outdoors on site and eaten on picnic tables. You might even find yourself sitting next to a legendary mountaineer telling the most fascinating climbing stories.

What better way to kick off your mountaineering experience than with the aptly named Summit Dog! It brought me good luck on reaching the top two days later.

Once you return, what better way to celebrate your summit than with a Pacific Northwest classic - the salmon burger (plus maybe a few beverages).

Every time I'm getting ready to tackle the mountain, I make sure to eat at the Basecamp Bar & Grill. Its the best.

Its on site with RMI/Whittaker's Bunkhouse so you should have all your pre/post-climb needs cared for at Basecamp.
