The bizarre menu specializes in expensive fondue dinners featuring a veritable menagerie of meat: beef, ostrich, buffalo, rattlesnake, alligator, venison to name a few. The wine list features over 100 selections including a special list of Canadian wines. Dinner at the Grizzly House is an event to remember.
