A word from Brewhouse at Whistler
The Brewhouse at Whistler is one of the busiest spots in the village all year round. With a separate restaurant, bar and mezzanine, the Whistler Brewhouse is capable of accommodating groups large and small. The pub has a cozy two-sided fireplace and lots of TVs so its a perfect place to watch the game when you're tired from playing all day. Our restaurant is warm and family friendly with a great kids' menu and a huge patio for Whistler's long, hot summers.

The cuisine is an inspired and appetizing mix of barbeque and rotisserie classics with exceptional pizza and pasta options. These flavours are complimented by the range of handcrafted ales and lagers which we brew onsite.

The BrewHouse is located next door to the Celebration Plaza with commanding views of the Olympic rings.

    Went with our two boys - was put at a table right away but in a really windy spot. We asked to move and they did so right away. Food was not good - poutine fries stale and pizza not good. Kids menu expensive - they charge extra for a drink and the ice cream. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

    Went for lunch. They have their own brews but unfortunately their keg for the award winning IPA was not working:( The second choice was good. We had the poutine which was light on the gravy but when asked the waitress quickly brought more. My wife had the salmon burger which she loved. I had the squid special which was good. No complaints on the food and the waitress was attentive. We watched as she waited on a table with kids and was patient and helpful. Nice to see that. Would definitely stop here again.

    Soup and green beans so salty it was inedible. Chicken drowning in BBQ sauce. Salmon cooked in tons of oil. Ordered kids meals right when we walked in, but they came 10 minutes after all the other food. Maybe an off night as we liked it last year. Nice atmosphere and in theory a good place for kids.

    This reaturant is great for groups, they have large round tables where it feels like everyone can talk and no one gets left out. The Olympic Rigs are located just outside the restaurant and it is nice because the kids can run around outside and you can have adult time AND still keep an eye on the kids.

    After reading some reviews, we made a reservation and went early. The beer is good, and the food was good. I also went for fried food, so it would be done. The rotisserie chicken wasn't even near done (at 5pm), so we steered clear from it. The oil used for the coleslaw was a little rank... beer might be 'fresh,' but not everything. Still, the beer, ambience and closeness to where we stayed, AWESOME, we're going to go again.

    We booked our reservation about a month and a half in advance. (You probably don't need to do this because we checked open table and they had a few open slots on the day of our reservation.) Anyhow, our service was good even though our waitress brought out our appetizers at the same time as our entrees. All of our food was good. It is by no means a fancy restaurant. Very casual atmosphere. It isn't as expensive as many other area restaurants. It would make a great lunch spot as well.

    We arrived at 705pm for a 730pm reservation for 9, table not ready so went to the bar - sat down at 735pm. 3 of 9 people ordered Jambalaya - waitress advised no longer available. This is 730pm not 930!!!!!!! Not pleased. Waitress also informed us that food orders were a minimum of a 45 minute wait. Waitress did advise that we could order a pizza for an appetizer that were coming out sooner - which we did. All orders including the appetizers all arrived at the same time. Disappointing experience - Waitress was great!

    We waited over an hour for our food. Had to ask to see the manager - he told us that he knew the kitchen dropped the ball. Food arrived at different times. Pizza burnt to a crisp. Service not taken seriously. We visit Whistler regularly and this is the worst we have ever experienced at a Whistler restaurant - never again.

    This is a gem in the village -- really a perfect way to end a ski day. Decor is quite nice, service was friendly and capable and the food quite good. Our server was great and made us feel welcome. We were there on Boxing day and things were quite busy -- but service was excellent and we never felt rushed. The restaurant is located right in the heart of Blackcomb --very convenient -- not located where google maps shows it!

    Bustling restaurant in a prime location in the Upper Village, near the Olympic rings. The lodge-like ambience is fun, it has plenty of tables to accommodate large groups and we enjoyed their beer selection. Reservations are easy, I was able to get a table for eight through Open Table the day before my arrival on 12/26. We arrived early, and although the table was not ready the hostesses were really friendly and let us know they would fetch us from the bar. I personally don't expect spectacular food during my stays in Whistler--in my mind it's not a foodie destination--so the food met my expectations and everyone was happy with their meal. We tried the pizzas, poutine and burgers. Shout out to our server--Gary, from Scotland--he was awesome!

    The restaurant has a nice ambiance, but the service is terrible. For starters it took forever to get our drink orders in, then when we got the bottle of wine and tried it we didn't really care for it. It tasted very acidic (maybe a little bit off). We told our server, so we went and tried a bit and said it was fine. We were starving when we came in, so we ordered as quickly as we could, but it took almost an hour for our food to come. After he cleared the table, we wanted more drinks but we didn't see our server for half an hour -- maybe he went on a break? Who know. So, we decided to get the bill which took even longer. I rarely ever don't tip, but I had to make an exception since the service and food weren't up to par.

    We travel to Whistler at least 5 times a year and always eat out. The last visit to the Brewhouse was disappointing, we order the chicken Lettuce wrap and it came with 4 small lettuce leaves and when my husband asked if we can have 2 extra leaves, the waiter apologized and said he would have to charge us for it. because the chef will be upset and the restaurant doesn't give extra lettuce. I was shocked but my husband out of principle just wanted to finish our meal and leave. He also told the waiter he would not be back not because he couldn't afford the $4.50 but is just ridiculous………. just saying there are a lot of places we can go for pub food in Whistler!

    I have been here before, and I have always enjoyed it. It's a pub/restaurant, so you go in knowing what to expect. The food is always pretty tasty, and the service is always good. For some reason we were sat under spotlights, and this was super uncomfortable. We were the only table in the place under these spotlights, and we felt on display and everything was way too illuminated. It sort of killed the vibe of our dining experience a little bit. Other than that, things were good.

    The menu had enough variety that you can have a selection of food, but not so much that it made it difficult to choose what to eat. My girlfriend and I got the Greek poutine and BBQ Beef Pizza, both of which were great and different from what I would be able to get in many other places. If and when I go back to Whistler, I would definitely give the other poutines a try, because the Greek poutine was amazing! Their craft beer list only consisted of 5-6 usuals plus 1 seasonal; but regardless, they were still very good! I would recommend everyone to order the sampler (it's not listed on their menu), which you can try a good amount of each beer for about $15. The service was great and timely, and I definitely enjoyed my time there!

    We went during the weekend of tough mudder and they were not well prepared. Took quite a while for food and drinks & when drink orders were taken, the waiter often didn't ask the whole table and just 1-2 people. In the event that another big event comes to Whistler, I'd suggest more staff & maybe a smaller dinner menu because yr kitchen was an hour + behind. Not to mention the fact that we weren't even seated on time because the kitchen was behind so the table prior to us left 45 minutes later than they were supposed to.

Door left open too often to the patio was a bummer (cold, then warm) but not a killer. A good watering hole has to be relaxing, efficient, not toooo noisy and friendly. Brewhouse is that and more.

    Food quality and service in Whistler can be quite inconsistent due to the very transient staff, particularly the cooks. Brewhouse has been around a few years. It is usually packed, especially the patio apres ski. I have had drinks there several times with decent appetizers. Our last visit dining inside as a family was terrible. The menu has no gluten free options for starters. My only choice was the green salad and the dressing was bitter and so scarce the lettuce stuck to the roof of my mouth. The chicken ceasar was the same -underdressed, odd tasting and the chicken was so overcooked it was inedible. The jambalaya was somehow too spicy and bland at the same time and overcooked. The only good thing was the pizza according to my teenage son
