Stayed in Whistler for about a year back in 2012. Was in there mostly 2-3 times a week. Believe me when I say this... 10/10 stay dream about the blueberry pancakes in the morning and ribs for dinner! Best diner worldwide. Great meal every time....More

Was staying in Creekside during recent ski trip. Went here for dinner one night. When I walked in, the décor is definitely old style and looks a bit divey, but some might call that "character". I sat at the counter with a few other folks....More

This is a tiny restaurant but is worth the wait! Everyone in our group had an amazing food. We went back several times!

This diner accommodated our large group of 26, with room leftover for more customers. Old-fashioned bar stools and decorations give a nice ambiance to the place. The burgers were amazing, with a great vegetarian falafel burger giving many options. Good milkshakes, and pleasant service too!

Yes, we do accommodate large groups at times, most likely in the afternoon or evening when we don't expect big crowds. We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves and were happy to have the group in.

Great quality, good sized portions, quick and friendly service. Frequent coffee top ups . Hard to beat if you’re in the mood for breakfast in Whistler. Prices in keeping with local ones. Overall a vert positive experience.

We were looking for an afternoon snack close to Creekside and stumbled upon the diner. Virgins to Canada's favourite comfort food, we tried the poutine and were pleasantly surprised - the combo really does work! We also shared the swiss mushroom burger which was delicious....More

I'll always give any traditional Diner a go, and on face value this place should work. Been here three times and despite being a cool venue, the food is average at best. For some reason they like to burn their home fries. This was the...More

Have eaten breakfast here several times and was aways good and price reasonable. So tried lunch with same results. This is a locals favorite and not on the normal tourist list. Place is small with a 1960 - 1970 diner decor. Staff was very friendly.
