Lodgepole Market and Café


The choices here run the gamut from simple to very simple, with several counters only a few strides apart in a central eating complex. The café, which is next to the Lodgepole Visitor Center, also sells fresh and prepackaged salads, sandwiches, and wraps. You'll find other prepackaged foods in the market.

Pita Kabob Gastropub

A large and ever-changing selection of craft beers, a lively dining garden, and authentic Mediterranean and fusion dishes—from kebabs, shawarma, hummus, and gyros to rice bowls and burgers—lure locals and visitors to this popular downtown eatery. Pack in multiple flavors by ordering a combination or sampler plate.

The Peaks


Huge windows run the length of the Wuksachi Lodge's high-ceilinged dining room, and a large fireplace on the far wall warms both body and soul. The diverse dinner menu—by far the best at both parks—reflects a commitment to locally sourced and sustainable products.
