The Wolf’s Den of Ostrander, Minn. gives customers a large variety of choices as a combination Saloon/Restaurant/Pizza Place. Whether you choose a beer and burger, or pizza and root beer, your mouth will be watering.

Opened in 2004, by Royal and Lynne Dempewolf, the Wolf’s Den has become a favorite of many locals and proof of that is the fact that the Wolf’s Den added on a large dining room which was opened in October 2012 and seats 80 people. According to Royal, this room can also be rented on Sundays for private parties. Mr. Dempewolf also stated that the business has had great support from the community which explains the need for expansion. The Wolf’s Den currently employs twelve people.

The Wolf’s Den has a large appetizer selection to start your meal off right. Other selections on the menu include hamburgers, shrimp, and pork chops. A Children’s Menu is available with all of the kids favorites to be sure to keep them happy and full, which is part of the reason the Wolf’s Den has been voted “Best place to eat with kids” in Bluff Country. Customers enjoy the weekly specials such as burger night on Wednesdays, Taco Thursdays, and Friday nights all-you-can-eat battered or broiled cod fish dinner. There is also an all-you-can-eat steak dinner available any night of the week. All dinners include choice of potato, salad, and soup.

If pizza is more to your liking then try the Wolf’s Dens’ famous pizza. The pizza has been named the best pizza in Bluff Country three years running. With thick or thin crust available choosing may be difficult so bring a group and try one of each! Owner Royal Dempewolf states that by far the most ordered pizza is the 16-inch, thick crust, four-meat pizza.

The Wolf’s Den has won various awards in the past for many of the items on the menu. In 2012 the burgers at the Wolf’s Den were voted “the best burgers around” in the “Best of Bluff Country” votes. Some of the burgers at the Wolf’s Den include the Wolf Burger, the Royal Burger, and the Lynne Burger.

This was not the only win for the Wolf’s Den in 2012 however, as the business was voted No. 1 for “friendliest service” to its customers as well. The food could stand alone at the Wolf’s Den, but it is not the only part of the Wolf’s Den receiving rave reviews as the bar was also found to be the number one bar in Bluff Country in 2012 by “Best of Bluff Country” votes.
