Of the few local options sprinkled along the road, there is one that stands apart as a fun family favorite.

Old Logging Town Meets Fun Dining Room

Upon entering you will notice large wood beams and wood paneling, reminding you of the “timber town” this all once was. Taxidermy Buck heads and TV’s are mounted to the walls throughout, and quarter games for kids are scattered into various areas of the restaurant. Head to the back to check out their full bar.

Exploring The Pizza Menu

On their menu you will find their pizzas come with fun names referencing the local landscape. They serve a standard crispy thin crust and top it with super fresh ingredients. Feel free to build your own pizza or calzone, or choose one of their tasty options from the menu. 

Their “Wolf Mountain” pizza is a favorite among patrons and staff. It’s considered a “hearty combo” and comes with 5 different types of meat: Pepperoni, salami, beef, sausage and canadian bacon and then piled high with mushrooms, olives, green peppers, onions and tomatoes. No one will be walking away from this meal still hungry!
