Welcome to the only après ski lodge at the southern end of Blue Mountain! The Bullwheel Pub offers a casual slope-side experience where guests can enjoy classic Canadian comfort food, post ride beverages with 8 beers on tap and weekend après entertainment.

The Bullwheel Pub provides an inviting open concept dining area with rustic wood beam ceiling and décor with a historic nod to ski days gone by.

Bullwheel: A large wheel on which a rope turns, such as in a chairlift. The bullwheel that is attached to the prime mover is called the drive bullwheel, with the other known as the return bullwheel.

    Kale salad was not available. Garden salad was ok but it needs the option of additional protein such as chicken as a separate item to add.

    The food was over priced and only mediocre, lines were long, you could order at the bar rather than stand in the long line, but unfortunately this information wasn't shared. They have a captive audience so they get business. If it weren't convenient we wouldn't go at all.

    Great venue with excellent burgers. However the lineup was at least a 15 minute wait to place our order because of only one cashier. They did add a second cashier and then the line moved much quicker. Once we sat down after placing our orders it was a short wait for our food to arrive. The burger and fries were fresh, very tasty and nice and hot. Would highly recommend but suggest you make a reservation through “OpenTable “ because it’s a busy spot. Will be back.

    Booked reservation as requested, waited in line for 20 mins because they were fitting in those without a reservation—- meaning the kitchen was also unprepared. Took over an hour and a half to have a quick ski break dinner. Food took 30 mins for simple kids chicken fingers, was cold and then we were rushed out. Disappointed in the experience, would not return.

    Our orders were misplaced and waited over 30 minutes, my friend went in to see what the issue was and was told they had a glitch and that they were preparing our orders now. When they were delivered the manger apologized and offered us water!!!!! A free drink or a free meal would of been a more suitable offer.

    The food was expensive and cold when served. The line up to order was huge because there was just one person on the counter. I wouldn't expect much from a ski resort but compared to quality of food - I would expect a reasonable price. Not the best experience - hope it was just a one off sunday. Definitely could have been better.

    The service is great everywhere. The staff must understand what a strange time this is and were truly kind and accommodating. The truffle fries were good, the kale/quinoa salad was one of the strangest looking and tasting dishes I’ve ever had. Those who ordered burgers around me seemed to enjoy them immensely and they looked really good. Cleaning protocols were consistent. A nice refuge on a frigid ski day.

    Sadly I made a reservation a week before...while standing waiting to check in we noticed people skipping the line and just walking in. When we got to our assigned table someone was sitting there. They were very nice, didnt know and moved (it was cold and they just walked in). By this time the food line was out the door and wait an 1 hour+... didnt mind that it was busy but what was the point in reserving??? We left without food. The girls on tje desk were swamped and clearly they needed more staff.

    The meal I ordered was turkey chilli in a bread bowl. What arrived was served in a cardboard bowl with a stale chunk of corn bread. What was in the bowl could in no way be described as chilli. It was a watery soup containing bone fragments.

    Thought it was a bad… turns out it’s basically a food hall/cafeteria. Food was mediocre and overpriced (not complaining about that) but we thought it was a real restaurant. They weren’t even using OpenTable, we just walked in and waited in a caf line for 30 minutes. I feel like it should be labeled differently
