Great pizza and quick service

Stopped for a quick dinner before late night ski at Sugar Mountain. Pizza was very good. Service was prompt and friendly.

We eat here every time we are in the mountains usually for breakfast and sometime dinner. Everything on the menu is excellent. For breakfast the veggie omelette is amazing loaded with tomatoes, peppers and mushrooms. I get a side of bacon or sausage. It somes with perfectly fried hashbrowns or grits and toast or biscuit. Exceptional food and great service.... More

We got a large bacon/onion pizza and took it back to the hotel. (It could have used a little more bacon.) Still, it was a VERY good pie. We put the leftovers in zip lock bags and ate it for lunch on the road the next day. It was the best "day after" pizza!

My husband got the calzone and absolutely loved it! Our server Catie seemed a little gruff, until you give her an opportunity to shine. She has a dry sense of humor that we loved... Catie this is for you- my husband LOVED the WATER!

Four of us recently had dinner at the lodge. My husband & I refuse to go to the cafe ( the 2 places are connected) because we have had bad breakfasts there in the past. We also find it to be not too clean. Our friends said the lodge was better and they are right. Wood floor rather than yucky... More

The Lodge is a great place to stop by for coffee and desserts either to eat in or to order to go. It's one of the few places we've found that offers a flavored decaf coffee to choose from.

The service was attentive and the food arrived quickly. Also reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this place to people visiting the Sugar or... More
