McGillicuddy’s is a family-owned and operated dining establishment located on Highway 58 in Oakridge. It is distinguished by a huge bugling elk on the west side of the building. The establishment was built in 1950 and housed several businesses over the years, including an old thrift store. The coffee is locally roasted and the food homemade and fresh. McGillicuddy’s is one of the last places in America that does not accept credit/debit cards!

They have kept the building and all the original fixtures intact, giving the impression of an old-time eatery. The shelves are filled with local artisans’ wares and consignment items from some of the locals.
