Dusty's Bar & BBQ

There’s a reason it’s been a local staple for decades.
Step inside Whistler’s original watering hole and go back in time to a place dripping with legend, lore and finger lickin’ BBQ sauce. Located at the base of the Creekside Gondola, Dusty’s offers mouthwatering BBQ, arguably the world’s best Caesar, a legendary après, party rockin’ live shows and is open everyday 11am ’til late.

When we say Dusty’s is full of legend and lore, we aren’t kidding. Dusty’s Bar & BBQ was named after Dusty, a stuffed horse that rode into Whistler in 1979 in the back of a pick-up. He was placed in the bar and for almost a decade, watched over the regulars as they partied the nights away. One full moon Friday, legend has it a female partier stripped totally naked and jumped on Dusty’s back. Dusty bucked into life, burst through the bar doors, shook the shocked nude into a snowbank and galloped off into the night, never to be seen again. The moral of the story? This is a place that will put the Wild back into your West.

Look Inside



Home to those who call Whistler home.

Located in Creekside where Whistler all began, this is where locals and long time visitors meet up and swap stories of secret stashes. Setting high standards for perfectly seasoned BBQ, Dusty’s offers great food in a western saloon style restaurant constructed from materials of the original building. A family friendly setting until 8 pm, when nighttime hits, put the kids to bed and head on down for the kind of night out that sees locals let loose and newcomers singing along to the live band while toasting to another epic day of playing in the mountains.


Dusty’s Bar: 12 p.m. until 1 a.m. (kids welcome 'till 10pm)

Dusty’s Backside: 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. (open in winter only)

Our ears are burning, and it’s not from the BBQ flames.

Word’s been spreading around these parts (and others) about Dusty’s. Take a look at what people have been saying.

  • The Best Après-Ski Eats Around the Globe
    You can ski right up to Dusty’s huge outdoor patio near the gondola in Creekside. There, just sit in the sun and choose from a tasty selection of pub food: pulled pork, wings and nachos. They also make a terrific old-fashioned Bloody Caesar, which goes great with the yam fries.AIR CANADA enRoute
  • Before all the fancy hotels and upscale restaurants, there was Dusty's, an unassuming little place in what is now known as Creekside. The original building has been demolished, but luckily the food didn't change and the regulars kept coming back. One of those places where people stop in for a barbecue beef sandwich and end up staying for a few hours, drinking beer with the locals. Dusty's "Backside" (out back) is open for breakfast and to-go lunches.”10best.com
  • Dusty’s was voted Whistler’s best Apres for two years running and they don’t just cater to the “post skiing” crowd. You can enjoy lunch or dinner at Dusty’s and don’t be shocked if you spend a late night at this watering hole. unofficialnetworks.com
  • This huge bar offers great outdoor space and plenty of room inside to play pool and shoot darts during the day. Dusty's often hosts great concerts inside on its big stage. I highly recommend you catch a show there if you can the cool upstairs balcony allows you watch the show with a birdseye view. Dusty's also features some of if not the best pub food in town. Well known for their epic BBQ competitions every year Dusty's make a mean burger for everyone's tastes. If you find yourself in Whistler's Creekside head on over to Dusty's for a pint and a burger. lodgingovations.com



Barbecue is neither art nor science, barbecue is passion. Cuts of meat rubbed with secret spices, slathered with sauce good enough to drink straight from the bottle and then cooked slow 'n’ low; that’s how Dusty’s BBQ is prepared by our team of BBQ professionals. And by professionals, we mean professionals. In fact, the Dusty’s BBQ team went on a 30 restaurant, 9-meal-a-day tour of the southern U.S. in search of the secrets of BBQ. Taste for yourself the difference going the extra mile makes.
