Grocery or Supermarket
“Fairway is the main grocery store in town. There are also a number of convenience stores between Mountain Center and Pine Cove along the 243. The main grocery store closes between 7 and 9pm depending upon the season so if you need something after hours, the convenience stores are the best option, but they won't have the same selection. ”

Brewery
“Great outdoor seating (for the pups and big parties) and a nice bar with a true brewery included. The sandwiches (fish sandwich, French dip, BBQ chicken, burger) and the apps (wings) are spot-on. ”

Italian Restaurant
“Beautiful setting with live music a number of nights a week. Love the bar seating area, too. Great wine list with food that leans towards traditional surf and turf. Delicious salads. A bit more expensive. Pups allowed.”
