We always go to the bullwheel when we come to big white - the service, food and venue are brilliant. the owner john and chefs are so nice and accommodating. they even got ribs in for us when we mentioned that we had the best ribs there the year before and they weren't on the menu - that's great service!...

This turned into our meeting point when a group of 18 of us visited Big White in Dec 2013. The staff was always very accomodating, service was very pleasant, always made room for us. EXCELLENT home made soups, and of course great drinks.

When here for supper after a long day on the hill. Great food and great service, funky beers on tap, totally a hockey bar. Had hockey jerseys hung on the walls in frames made of hockey sticks, hockey game on on all TVs. Great atmosphere restaurant seemed busy and full of great smelling food. My chicken parm was amazing crispy... More

The owner has an opinion, and you are going to know about it. that being said, i wouldn't have it any other way. The food was excellent, atmosphere warm, and service was friendly, albeit tongue in cheek. They should do a Fawlty Towers theme night. It would be a great experience, just with much better food. Have fun, and don't... More

Back in February my family and friends visited your restaurant and had the best time and easily the best food at Big White. While there, the owner came out and asked us if we were enjoying our visit. I made a comment about how I liked his Thirsty Beaver shirt and he went to check if the brewery still had... More

Horrible server. My "pizza" was ok but overpriced for what it was. Our Aussie server couldn't care less about our table. She hung out mostly at the bar laughing with some...friends?

The Bull Wheel is located in the village centre at Big White. Our experience with the hostess (tall, black hair) was similar to that at Sam’s; she may as well have not even been there. She did not smile, did not offer us any water or drinks, did not describe any specials, and basically did nothing to add value to... More

This is not a bar nor is it a roadhouse. It's somewhere between unique menu options and sports bar. I had a hanger steak which was very good. We had wings, which were average. We had the pork bites and they were a bit greasy. The service was not bad but I would go back and give it another try.... More

After hard day skiing needed quiet dinner. Bullwheel fit the bill. Right in centre of the ski village. We each had different meal, at reasonable price.
