Revelstoke mountain resort has limited options for eating and drinking. In the evening there is only the Rockford Wok & Grill, however its extensive menu and good range of prices make it more than possible to dine there two or three times during a weeklong stay. In the main town of Revelstoke there are many more options to choose between.
Mountain restaurants in Revelstoke
There are several good mountain restaurants in Revelstoke, and in general you can eat well on the slopes at reasonable prices. The Mid-Mountain Lodge has great views and a really varied menu with something to suit everyone, from burgers and BBQ to pasta and salads. The Mackenzie Outpost at the top of Revelation Gondola is another firm favourite for a quick bite, good coffee and great views.
Resort restaurants in Revelstoke
At the village base The Rockford Wok & Grill offers full service sit-down dining with a menu covering BBQ and Asian options. Portions are generous and the restaurant and bar is open all day and into the night for cocktails and late snacks. There’s also a great patio with lovely views of the Monashee Mountains. For well-priced café cuisine, try La Baguette for locally roasted coffee, as well as hot and cold snacks and light lunches, including pastries, soups, salads and sandwiches.
With the town of Revelstoke only five minutes away from the resort, you can easily head into town for dinner. Affordable local pub fare can be found at the Village Idiot or the Last Drop, where you can enjoy a casual dinner and drinks. For more upscale dining try the Regent Hotel’s Steakhouse & Lounge for great steaks and fresh fish, or the Woolsey Creek Bistro a little way out of the town centre. There are several Japanese and Chinese restaurants in town, but Kawakubo is a stand out, both for food and atmosphere.
Après-ski in Revelstoke
The on-mountain and ski village après-ski scene in Revelstoke is very low key, but there are a couple of places to unwind in your ski boots. The Rockford and the Mid-Mountain Lodge both have small bars for a quiet après-ski tipple.
For a slightly livelier après-ski scene, but by no means wild, head into downtown Revelstoke where there are a few more drinking haunts for you to get your après on. The Village Idiot and the Last Drop are good options for beers and a bite in an informal sports bar atmosphere. The Cabin is a firm favourite for its quirky style and laidback vibe, featuring an in-bar bowling alley.
For more refined surroundings the Regent Hotel has a cocktail bar, and some evenings there is unobtrusive live lounge music too. There are a couple of bars which transform into nightclubs of sorts on certain evenings, and your best bets for late night fun and dancing are Out of Bounds and the River City Pub. As always in North America, be sure to bring your ID out with you, because it will be checked.
