The crust is a mild sourdough. We also offer a gluten free crust from a local company called Inspiration Mixes. We also have the best burgers and sandwiches around. Hand dipped fish and chips as well as homemade clam chowder. Large parties and reservations available. We also have 37 microbrews on tap and even do beer to go in growlers. And we have several TVs showing all kinds of sports. Thanks for reading about my restaurant. Like us on Facebook.

Logger's is my #1 choice for Pizza in Roseburg. Soooooo delicious!!

Of course they have other food, too. Which I haven't heard anyone complain about.

They have HUGE breakfast options.

The Tap Room / Bar is nice. A fun place to hang out with friends or watch people sing Karaoke. They have several local beers on tap.

We just had a gluten free Mediterranean pizza and paleo bowl made with cauliflower rice. Very filling and tasty. The inside of the restaurant is just a few tables and nothing fancy.

Ordered regular and gluten free pizzas. Both were tasty and piping hot. Would have liked more sauce and cheese but very good. Loved the gluten free options on tap very delicious cider. Fair value, pricey for sizes.

Loggers offers a huge variety of beers, some that I've tried for the 1st time. Pizza and salads are excellent and staff are friendly, though not always that attentive. A super large screen TV shows sports for all to see from anywhere in the place. A mid-floor sunken area with tables is pretty cool and more private.

Half of all pizza restaurants nationwide are independent pizza shops, however Roseburg is home to only two independents — Loggers Tap House/ Logger’s Gourmet Pizza and Abby's Legendary Pizza — and five national chains — Pizza Hut, Domino's Pizza, Round Table Pizza, Papa Murphy's, and Little Caesars Pizza.

Loggers Taphouse promotes “Voted best pizza in Roseburg since 2013!” but its hubris belies mediocre competition.

On my last visit, a friend and I both ordered the $7.99 lunch special, a personal two-topping pizza and a side salad. Prices apparently increased recently as the restaurant’s website lists this special as $6.95.

The salad bar looked like a converted pizza prep cooler, loaded with black olives, chopped tomatoes, sliced onion, grated cheese and mushrooms. Two large bowls of lettuce bookended the bar: wilted mixed greens on one side; an iceberg lettuce mix (the cheapest bagged premix available in your grocer’s produce section) on the other side. Other salad bar options included foodservice-delivered macaroni and bowtie pasta salads, a half-empty container of cottage cheese, and room temperature broccoli, cauliflower and pickled beets.

We returned to our tables with our salads just steps ahead of the waitress, who brought our personal pizzas. I ordered mushroom and sausage (and posted pictures, so you can judge). The waitress disappeared after that, appearing only once more to our table to ask “How is everything?” as we had nearly finished our meal. We responded by asking for the check.

Apizza Scholls, arguably Oregon’s most acclaimed pizzeria* and often cited as one of the best in the nation, uses an electric Baker's Pride pizza oven, so I’m not suggesting quality pizza comes only from wood-fired brick ovens. There are many different styles of pizza craft. Yet, as of today, Roseburg’s pizza shops only commonality is a lack of passion.

For example, Loggers Taphouse uses pizza screens and/or dimple or perforated pans, which speaks volumes about the pizzeria. Why? Well, using them requires little training.

These tools allow for air flow between the pan and crust, preventing condensation, which turns pizza into the undercooked, soggy mess served at most pizzerias. No doubt the idea of creating space (with dimples or holes) to allow steam to escape, so the crust becomes crisp, sounds good; the reality is evaporative cooling and the lack of contact with a hot surface prevents the crust from becoming crisp.

At Loggers Taphouse, the result is a hard, dense crust, similar to pizza from a fast food assembly-line or a pre-cooked frozen box. The crust offered little flavor, neither crisp nor chewy. Instead of finding char spots on the pizza bottom, I found a pattern of raised dimples.

Pizza screens and/or dimple or perforated pans (and conveyor ovens) are commonly used shortcuts by operators. It takes time to teach and train employees how to use a pizza peel, how to mix, proof and handle dough, how to monitor air and oven temperature. All of these details and more (including ingredient quality) affect the final product.

I commented to my lunch guest, an attorney himself, “The crust’s raised dimples are prima facie evidence we could have eaten a real pizza at Lighthouse Center Bakery but chose not to this time.”

Fundamentally, it takes dedication and devotion to making great pizza. I’ve found no evidence of those qualities at Loggers Taphouse.

Finally, a word on prices: a 16-inch Hawaiian pizza (Canadian bacon and pineapple) sells for $25.99 at Logger’s. Whereas, I can buy an 18-inch “Pig & Pineapple” (cured, smoked Canadian bacon, red onions and pineapple) from Apizza Scholls for $26. No one would argue the cost of living is higher in Portland, so why accept Portland prices for lower quality in Roseburg?

*Apizza Scholls ranked #14 out of the “101 Best Pizzas in America” by The Daily Meal.
