Food & Wine Selections

What I didn’t expect to find at Bear Creek, was the most delicious pizza I have ever tasted! I ordered the fresh and delicious “Bear Ass Pizza”. The prices are reasonable, especially with such large servings of food. Wine samples are offered, and you can enjoy a glass of your favorite for $6. My favorite wine is the Hillbilly Persuasion, which is a nice light crisp wine, close to a Chardonnay.
