Before getting into the restaurant business, Jeff Rabideau worked construction, owned a small gun shop and co-hosted an outdoors show.
Suzie Thaller worked in the corporate world with databases and graphics, sold her wildlife artwork and co-hosted an outdoors show.
Each of them spent alot of their free time cooking - not only for themselves, but for catered events, biker parties, church fundraisers, firemen's banquets... had even began hosting an annual "rib-off" at their home.
The love of food was already there - and then the love of family and the Cranberry/Wanakena area provided the reasons for huge life changes and the rest is history!
The Pine Cone has gone through many changes over the years - and has now become the Pine Cone Grill to reflect Jeff and Suzie's preference towards grilled and smoked foods. They are also making efforts to incorporate the beauty of the property by utilizing the outdoor pavilion and yard into their everyday events... watch for more changes!
Events will be listed here on this website - as well as our Facebook page. Last year's events included a luau, clambakes, pig roasts, ugly sweater contest, kentucky derby mint julep day, bands, barbecues, horse shoes, SuperBowl party, snow bowling...WATCH FOR MORE ODD EVENTS!
