We were recommended this pub by young Canadian waitress at another venue. The pub has character with pleasant and attentive staff. There is a good selection of beers. The first is excellent and good value for money. Popular with locals. Recommend a visit.

Have been to The Idiot many times when I am skiing at Revy. It is my standard eating place in town, or occasionally for takeout pizza too take back to my hotel. Overall good food, and great beer, with a selection to cover most people's needs. Very friendly staff, and I love Revy's own Mt. Begbie craft beer that they... More

Had dinner and drinks here. Prices reasonable, very relaxed atmosphere with eclectic decor. Fun place to spend an evening. Food was very good, lots of variety. Drinks delicious! Worth a visit. Plan to hang around a while in the friendly and fun atmosphere!

This place has pub fare down to a science. Wings were sauced and crisped just right and they have a decent sized menu of good lookin dishes. It was busy in there and it wasn't even supper time so that's usually a good sign. We came in with a kid and the servers were quick to accommodate. This place gets... More

We enjoyed this restaurant after a long drive for an overnight stop en route to Kelowna. The staff were helpful and friendly. The menu included some excellent choices, from creative salads to Asian-themed dishes, as well as interesting twists on old favourites. We arrived without a reservation on a busy evening and the staff were helpful in accommodating us and,... More

This place was good. Not great. Pizza was good, kitchen sink was really good, drinks were average. Service was good. And that's all I can say. It is a family place though so expect line ups at the dinner hour. Not great, but not bad.

You can try local beer and for food, we ordered a chili cheese fries, which was huge and delicious and later on I ordered a small stirfry, I really wanted the tuna but they ran out so I had beef instead, super tasty!

Stopped in for a late afternoon snack with family. Drinks were good and average prices, food was good pub fare. Service was friendly and good. This is a local's pub, I imagine it would be very busy apres-ski, the décor is slightly worn & dark, but if your there for the food and friends, it is great.

Excellent beer and service, friendly people and amazing food. Recommend the Stir Fry with Ka Poow sauce and the Pasta Carbonara. If you are in Revelstoke this is a must go place, don't miss it.
