Ivy Bear: Blast From The Past




We’re always looking for a new place to get pizza and last night we found an amazing spot.
For years we’ve passed “The Ivy Bear” but never stopped in to check it out.

For a number of years the place was shut down.

The restaurant started in 1945 and used to be “The Place” to go on the way to Mt Hood just outside Sandy.

A few years ago a new owner took over, remodeled and brought great pizza to “The Hood.”

The restaurant is really cool. They server great beer and have growlers if you want to take a little brew up the hill with you.

We grabbed two pizzas’ to go, reheated them when we got back to “The Lodge at Welches”.


The pizza is really good, the service is the same and if you want a cool place to just relax on the mountain we highly recommend “The Ivy Bear.”
