Dusty's BBQ & Bar
Step into 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 food, arguably the world’s best Caesar, legendary après, party rockin’ live shows and is open everyday 11 a.m. until 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 woman 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 the West.
A++ BBQ. And barbecue is neither art nor science. It is passion.
Cuts of meat are 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 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 to BBQ. Come in anytime to taste the difference going the extra mile makes.
Dusty's is 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 place till 10 p.m., Dusty's is a great place to let loose after putting the kids to bed—singing along to the live band and toasting to another epic day of playing in the mountains.

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. We highly recommend you catch a show there if you can the cool upstairs balcony allows you watch the show with a birds-eye view.
