We enjoyed everything, Brie Springrolls and Short Rib Bite to start, then Bison Pastrami and Lamb Shank for entrees, Chocolate and Caramel (flourless cake) Everything was worth the price and we will plan to visit again.

Booked a table for 10 with a few hours notice for friends in from outta town. AND... Once again everything was perfect, polite and treated like they were happy to have our business. I can't believe people have wrote bad reviews, I just don see it. I really like taking people here, we always come away happy.

We headed up to Bear's Den primarily because of the live jazz music on Friday and Saturday night, though we passed on the date night menu (3 full courses is too much). The service was friendly and professional. The music was excellent (The Dynamic Duo featuring Corinne Plomish singing). And the food was very good. I started with the trio... More

We went there to celebrate my husbands 65 birthday plus the birthdays of two of our daughters, so wanted somewhere special. Arrived ten minutes early to our reserved time, and were promptly seated. Good so far. Then we sat. After about half an hour our waitress asked us if we would like a drink. We said yes and ordered. Promptly... More

This excellent restaurant has a club-like feel. The menu and food are first-class and it is an ideal location for a business dinner. However, I can not give it 5-stars. The service is good, but I do not appreciate having a server suggest what I should order unless I ask for his input. This unnecessary "advice" has been offered on... More

Friends of ours that live in Bearspaw suggested we all try BD because they were there a year ago and enjoyed it. For the most part the service was alright because our server was attentive but somewhat cold and forgetful for most of the evening. We all ordered various appetizers and entrees and nobody raved about how good their meal... More

Very nice restaurant in Bearspaw. It is has great food and beautiful atmosphere. There is a large fireplace inside and candles on tables. The light inside is dim. It's just perfect.

Just wanted the staff and cooks to know we went on November 24th for dinner and took my parents. There was nothing but compliments from everyone, it was absolutely a first class dinner, and we eat at quite a few upscale restaurants. They tried very hard prepare everything to perfection and is was! Thanks Bearsden, we will all be back.

We live out in North Springbank. yet we had never been to The Bear's Den though we have always planned to. The atmosphere and decor is very engaging . Sort of Banffie... More
