"What You Really Crave Is The Pizza" At Advertiser Bison Creek Pizza & Pub
We stopped by the other day to say Hi to B-Town Blog friend and Advertiser Bison Creek Pizza & Pub. We enjoy the company of the proprietors, but honestly, we just can’t resist the food!
Bison Creek Pizza & Pub originated in West Seattle in 1975 and expanded to Burien in 1977. The West Seattle location is no longer in operation, but the Burien restaurant and pub continues to this day.
New owners Shauna and Ryan Rumel purchased Bison Creek Pizza on September 15, 2008, and have seen business increase due to their hard work even as the economy has seen a dramatic downturn.
Shauna met her husband Ryan at the Art Institute of Seattle where she studied video and film production and Ryan studied graphic design.
They started dating at school and they both graduated in 2001. Then Cupid shot his arrow and they were married in 2004.
Shauna was working in the financial field and Ryan worked in construction. When they both could see that the housing market was going to collapse, they decided to start their own business.
The couple often came to Bison Creek Pizza while they were dating and would drive up from Renton even after they were married because, as Shauna says, “It’s pizza that you crave!”
They noticed a listing for Bison Creek Pizza in 2008 and purchased it.
“It was meant to be,” they told us.
Shauna says “One of the things that sets us apart from other restaurants is that we offer wheat- and gluten-free pizzas, and even wheat- and gluten-free beer!”
“If you have allergies to wheat and gluten, just ask and we will make a special pizza just for you,” she says.
Between 11am and 2pm Monday through Friday, Bison Creek offers a wonderful all-you-can-eat buffet with a salad bar, soup and fantastic pizza!
In addition to pizza, the menu includes appetizers, calzones, a variety of salads, pasta dishes, hot sandwiches and a “Lil’ Bandits” Kids Menu.
Who the heck serves Root Beer Floats anymore? Well, Bison Creek does! Just ask.
On weekends Bison Creek Pizza offers live music featuring some of Seattle’s top bands.
Asked what advice Shauna and Ryan have for folks thinking of starting up their own business, they say “Have patience and go for it. We’re here and we’re happy!”
While eating or enjoying the atmosphere at Bison Creek, ask them about the 100-year old wooden back bar. It’s an 1890’s Brunswick model and was shipped in two pieces from the Bison Creek Dude Ranch in Montana to the Burien location in the early 1990’s.
