We stopped in intending to have an appetizer and a wine while listening to the live music. After one appetizer we decided to have another plus another wine. Then we made a reservation for dinner on Sunday. It was a very positive experience, we are anxious to return. The music was wonderful, exactly what we we hoping for.

Great location by the river and convenient to downtown Whitehorse. Very eclectic interior with the "wheelhouse" set up as the bar. Spacious seating with very nice outdoor views. The menu has something for everyone and it has a decent wine list. We enjoyed the Arctic Char and the Braised Ribs. The Duck was dry (seems to be a consistent issue).... More

Great night out with friends. I had the gnocchi for dinner and had the lemon meringue cheesecake for dessert, everything was delicious. Friendly and helpful service. I have come in for dinner multiple times now, including for a wedding, and have always enjoyed our time. Surprisingly consistent for Whitehorse. Can't recommend enough.

I have eaten here several times and the food is always delicious. I would recommend the braised short ribs, shepherd's pie, prospectors punch (if you're feeling a cheeky cocktail), and one of their tasty coffees.

The wheelhouse is one of the local restaurants in Whitehorse. We went for dinner. Didn't make any reservation but we were seated immediately. I had the bison Shepard pie. It is one of the signature dishes. I highly recommend to try it. It was delicious.

From the time we were greeted by the owner to the time we left, we were treated with wonderful service. The atmosphere is inviting, with the well suited organ players tinkering out lively tunes and the decor is interesting and befitting the establishments name. Table service was excellent and the waitress friendly and chatty. The range of food though not... More
