Canada’s Wonderland located just outside Toronto is getting its own multi -level restaurant.

It will be named Lazy Bear Lodge: Wood Fired Grille and sit at two levels. It will have an occupancy of 500 seats.

There will be indoor and outdoor seating on both levels, with a deck as well as a patio with a natural gas fire pit. There will be fireplaces throughout the restaurant, including one that’s 16-feet tall and granite.

The design of the restaurant is inspired by ‘a time when settlers explored the country’s vast frontier’ as well as ‘the striking beauty of the Canadian wilderness.’ There is also a heavy influence from classical buildings and old lodges in Canada.

The new restaurant will use natural materials like flagstone, granite and wood, as well as large interior murals of Canadian landscapes and over 15 statues of black bears.

Food wise, there will be two smokers on site with dishes of spice-rubbed smoked beef brisket and smoked BBQ chicken. Local ingredients will play an important role and will be Canadian-inspired, much like the design. A popular Canadian signature dish is the Caesar dish and will feature at Canada’s Wonderland new eat house too

Work on the restaurant has been ongoing since winter, and is located on a hill overlooking Frontier Canada.

Peter Switzer, director of maintenance and construction, shares more information:

“It’s the largest capital investment we’ve ever made in a dining facility. Its location is right in the middle of the park.

“We wanted to make it look like it was always here and part of our landscape.”

Lazy Bear Lodge is scheduled to open later this summer.
