went in a couple of times before dinner for a pint on the way to Whistler town, more of a sports bar than anything else with the sheer amount of TVs, which makes it a little noisy and suited me just fine. Well priced, well...More

Good atmosphere and very loud some nights. Beer food and lots of laughs. It is a great place to meet people and just have fun. Beer is not too expensive and service is good. Great place to spend time after skiing and in the evening

Merlin's has a really lively and cool atmosphere but manages to remain family friendly. The staff are all great. The food is brilliant with huge portions and it's cheap. With it being right next the blackcomb day lodge it's ideally placed too. Check it out.

We visited Merlin's on Trivia Tuesday, and had a blast! The host was funny and kept everyone in high spirits. A pitcher of Kokanee beer was $16, and the prizes for winning Trivia were more free beer. I would definitely stop by this place again.

I love Merlins - it's one of the greatest bars in Whistler for a good time. BUT - it seems that this season (06-07) there is some kind of professional hit operation going on for jackets being stolen. I don't want to diss the bar...More
