The Beautiful Restaurant Tucked Away In A Forest Near Pittsburgh Most People Don’t Know About
The longer, lovely spring days promise the perfect excuse for a leisurely drive, of under two hours, to this breathtakingly beautiful forest restaurant near Pittsburgh. (Okay, so it’s a bit of a hike but the effort to get to the Gateway Lodge Restaurant will certainly be worth the effort.)
Hidden near the enchanting Cook's Forest, Gateway Lodge and Restaurant beckons weary travelers in search of peace, quiet, solitude, and...a good meal.
Surrounded by nature's beauty and within the rustic confines of the Gateway Lodge, the Gateway Lodge Restaurant and Wine Bar provides a cozy setting for a delicious meal.
Descend the quaint stone stairs that lead to the entrance of the lodge, stopping for a moment to reflect on the beauty surrounding you.
Sit at one of the picturesque wooden tables, decorated with brightly colored flowers in the spring or...
Request a table by the quaint fireplace during the colder months and gaze out of the windows at the snow-capped landscape.
Gateway Lodge Restaurant also boasts a private dining table (pictured below) near the bar, the latter of which features an array of wine that earned the restaurant the "Wine Spectator Award of Excellence" six times.
Peruse the generous menu that offers an eclectic range of dishes, including cedar smoked salmon, pork chops, crab cakes, and pan roasted chicken.
Top off your delicious meal with a scrumptious dessert - sugar donuts, apple almond cake, Deb's maple pecan pie, or winter spice cake.
Gateway Lodge Restaurant welcomes diners (non-guests at the lodge) to experience all of its charm - including regularly scheduled live entertainment - for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Or, indulge in a delectable Sunday Brunch every Sunday between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
