We know the situation. You’re coming down from Mt. Bachelor and you’re starving. You’ve called to see how long pizza delivery is and you’ve got a wait. You remember from last year that trying to go into many of the restaurants in the Village means a long wait with grumpy kids who need dinner to boost their spirits. And speaking of spirits, you could really go for a tasty cocktail after waiting in the line of cars coming back down from the mountain.
If this sounds a bit too familiar, we have a solution. Many of our guests might be excited to learn about dining options on Spring River Road, just outside of Sunriver proper. When it comes to Sunriver dining options, The Wallow Bar & Grill offers guests a comfortable experience and a home cooked meal on your way back from Mt. Bachelor. When trying to beat the crowds, here’s our #sunriversavvy tip this holiday season – try dining out at The Wallow, located just outside of the entrance to Sunriver.
