What a disappointment after such a l-o-n-g wait to receive food that was devoid of anything close to flavour. And for reasons too long to mention, we were there four days in a row so had plenty of opportunity to test our observations from the first meal. Nothing wrong with the presentation, everything looked ok, but didn't taste of much.... More

All of the good restaurants were packed this weekend up at Big White so I gave this place a chance. I asked some people coming out what it was like - "Spotty at best," they said, "but there's a huge wait everywhere else." There's a reason... Service at this spot was quite good and the lunch rush was on -... More

Pretty standard fare, but very attentive staff, good kids menu including "build your own pizza", nice selection of local wines and beers. Delicious steak.

Competition is getting tough and this place needs to step up! The poutine with shredded chicken on top was dry and uninspiring. Steak sandwich featured a cheap cut atop a slice of garlic toast. The side of coleslaw tasted totally off, and the Caesars had limp old celery as a garnish. We used to love the Caesar here mixed with... More

Can't really comment on anything. We went for an apres ski drink but didn't stay..the prices were ridiculous. Red wine starting at $11 per glass. Strongbow Cider 10.50 per glass. Keep it real guys. ..this is a pub, not fine dining One if the best things about BW is fair food and drinks at a fair price.

Not had any food here as kitchen was closed (9:30pm) when we tried, so this is a drinks only review covering multiple visits. Firstly, location-wise this is simply the place to go due to its location at the bottom of the run home. I think The BullWheel is new this year as I don't remember the name from last year.... More

A solid location for lunch - good food & great, friendly service from the team of Aussie servers. We ordered poutine, which was great, & the delicious Goats Kick grilled cheese - made with 3 cheeses including, you guessed it, goats cheese! Prices were reasonable, although we didn't appreciate is the $1 charge for some mayo to go with my... More

Nice bar atmosphere for a lunch break. Not sure why the BullWheel burger is "now famous". It is a tasty burger but not sure that it merits its "famous" moniker. The Salmon in the salmon burger was cooked too well done and on the dry side for our taste. Salad and fries that come with meals are good. A little... More

We started our pub crawl here with excellent service, cozy atmosphere, great drinks and a fantastic salad (we split 1 between 2 people it was so big). Definitely worth checking out!
