Why do you like The Grizzly House so much? Only been there once.

Speaking from complete ignorance of the area here, but when I see a phrase like
Quote:
is a landmark destination for thousands of visitors
... I tend to cringe inwardly.

I've lived in a number of places that were "tourist destinations". Restaurants that cater to huge numbers of tourists and offer a "unique atmosphere" have always been hit or miss as far as the actual meals were concerned.

Not saying you can't have a good time and a good meal at these places (they always have plenty of repeat traffic), but they do tend to be overhyped and overpriced if you're just looking for a good meal, IMHO.

Weather has been fairly poor so far this year. How did it work out for you?
