About

Known for its excellent location in the heart of Big White Village, and its vibrant outdoor beer garden, The Woods is now under new management by Big White Ski Resort. This restaurant joins other popular establishments in Big White’s food & beverage portfolio such as the recently revamped Clocktower Coffee Co., the stunning Black Forest Day Lodge and the outlets within Happy Valley Day Lodge. Executive Chef, Rob Walker, will add a locally sourced and sustainable influence to The Woods menu while keeping some of the favourite items that have made this dining establishment so popular since its opening in 2013.
Our reservations start from 5pm.

Birthday celebration. Excellent food and service. Was disappointed that we weren’t able to book one table for all 8 of us but had to book 2. When we arrived there were several empty tables,and we weren’t allowed to put two 4’s together so had to sit as two groups. Besides that everything was good.

We were not allowed into the bar area for a pre-dinner beverage. The greeter was rather rude with us.

The servers were friendly especially to six year old granddaughter. The kids menu was ideal. Too much salt on French fries.

Booked last minute as key down by another restaurant. Welcomed, and no issue changing meat and cheese board to just meat to go with fondue . Great service

Service food and wine was fabulous. Wine was a tad slow on the refill but I think that’s because they were short on glasses so not really a service issue. Loved the Date Night dinner. Was a great thing to do with my girlfriend who came to see me on my family ski trip.

Our servers were funny, friendly and delightful!

our server was fantastic. The only issue we had is we had two small children and asked if we could sit at a low table and not the high table. We were told there was not a low table available that is was reserved. The youngest fell off his chair in the middle of dinner and fortunately he was not hurt, but it would have been safer if we were at the lower table, just saying.

Location is amazing. Like all restaurants in Big White, keeping it simple would be more effective than fancy. Why not steak and frites? We generally find the food in BW not extraordinary.

Our group of four shared a couple of appetizers. The dates stuffed with Gorgonzola were delicious. And the Caesar salad was also very good. My squash ravioli with shrimp was good but the sauce was very rich and very generous. My partner enjoyed his burger. My friend felt that she could do a better job of the moroccan chicken stew. Our server was delightful and very personable.

Food was great. We shared the Chilli Spiced Cauliflower as a starter, which was good but not that spicy which suited us. We both had the Butternut Ravioli, again very good. Portion sizes were also generous. Our waitress was delightful, really friendly and helpful. Would definitely visit again if in Big White.

We were looking forward to our return to The Woods. Unfortunately two mains, catch of the day, pork chop as well as calamari were sold out. Friday night? The cauliflower and cheese appetizer was decent as well as mixed green salad, adequate. Moroccan chicken and pumpkin stew, short ribs portions were generous but
The delay between appetizers and mains resulted in tepid food for the most part. We took most of our mains home. Our server did compensate us for the delay. Hopefully this was an off night.

We had a wonderful view of the clock tower and the snowy outdoors.it was cozy and warm inside.
I loved the short ribs and large salad( full of all kinds of veg is and nuts etc) ... two adults and we shared both dishes . It was delicious and plentiful.
They offered a Syreh from Church and State that was a feature wine . It was valued at $35 on Vivino , yet they only charged us $55! Typically a restaurant charges double the price of the actual value due to corking fees etc., so we were impressed with that as well.
Highly recommend dining here 👍

Great food, loud due to large group next to us, they were having fun just difficult to hold a conversation. Price for a glass of wine was a bit much but overall a great evening.

Unfortunately, the soba noodles were a pile of mush. I think my dinner companions enjoyed their short rib dinners. The wine was lovely and the service was excellent.

Appetizers were good and the main was fine but the beef in all of our stir fry’s (we all ordered the stir fry) wasn’t cooked. We all like medium rare but this beef just wasn’t cooked enough.

Vegetarian options are very poor. It would be great to have a decent veggie burger on the menu. The stir fry that we substituted tofu for beef (and paying extra for tofu?!!) had far too much sauce so wasn’t very nice and the kids’ spaghetti Alfredo was really stodgy and tasteless i’m afraid.
