The Axe and Fiddle
Publican Prowess in Cottage Grove
The Axe and the Fiddle is a proper pub and a place where loggers and organic farmers alike seem to settle in and become convivial. The building is a restored Burkholder Woods building with ample space to create great acoustics for the live bands that play four nights a week. Beers on tap are served in mason jars and the pub grub does not disappoint. I had a burger and salad that quickly made my top ten list of burgers, all time (not an easy feat). It's the perfect place to refuel after you've fallen for the River Row Trail by bike or foot, earlier in the day.
