It seems that maybe the Bears Den is resting on its laurels. It's not quite what it used to be and doing away with the B-Side Bistro (making it part of the restaurant and with the same menu) is a step backwards in my opinion. The Bistro side would still be the preferable side to be seated, due to being... More

Have been here many times for dinner, which is always fabulous, but on this particular occasion, we were here for Thanksgiving Brunch, which was truly one of the best, if not THE best brunches which we've ever been too. Brunch was family-friendly and the service was superb!

My wife to be and I visited the Bears Den on Saturday, August 31, 2014. The service was top shelf and we both enjoyed our appetizers. We both had the prime rib and it was cooked to perfection. If we both had one concern was with the sides that were included and the mushrooms that we also purchased. We found... More

Located in Bearspaw, this place is quite lovely inside-something that is hard to tell from the outside appearance. It has an upscale steakhouse vibe and yummy steaks are the feature. My husband and I had a lovely meal with great service.

Our meal was delicious and beautifully presented. We ate on the 'casual' side of the restaurant which had the added bonus of great live entertainment ( a singer with guitar accompaniment) The restaurant itself is very attractive with an elegant but homey atmosphere. Both the Manager and our server were extremely personable. To top all of that, the washroom was... More

Had a great meal here with friends. The exterior does not do the interior justice as it is cosy, whether you are in the lounge or dining room. Our server was very knowledgeable and patient as she explained the menu and food/drink pairings. Overall a little pricier but definitely worth it for the flavour.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a fantastic romantic atmosphere and I want to love it, but its getting harder to return due to mediocre wait service. With this price point I shouldn't have to wait for drinks and get food orders mixed up. I am always underwhelmed by the wait staff at Bears' Den and I bristle at the... More

Excellent restaurant with all the amenities expected of a high class restaurant, but with a humble engaging staff that are eager to please and ensure your night is memorable. As it has been since it beginings this place has always set the standard for first class food, sevice and experience, Well done Bears Den staff.

Food was okay - quite overpriced for what you get. Service was terrible. Party of twelve on a Thursday. Not busy in the restaurant but still service was lacking. We returned a couple of drinks as they were not good at all, turns out we were charged for them anyway. Servers were defensive when asked on the status of items... More

The food was not bad, but not as great as it used to be, and not worth the price charged. The prime rib was cooked well, but the au jus was non existent, the seasoning was bland, and the yorkshire pudding was cold and stale. The fish was good and the appetizers were good but for the price the portions... More
