Club-like atmosphere.

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... read 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.

While this is a cozy place....we had reservations for my friends 55 bday....we were seated by the door, which after complaining a few times we were moved to a better table. The service was ok, the food just ok. The gm did bring us a glass of sparkling wine... Anyways for a special occasion we were disappointed .

It was like stepping back to the day when dinning, truly was dinning. The decor is very stately, with high back chairs, deep wood panelling, and formal place settings. Our party of four, were seated in a smaller room, off the main dinning area. Perfect, so conversation was easy, and our enjoyment heightened. Our server, Judy, was more than helpful,... More

Bears Den was recommended by one of my colleagues today. I went here with my boss after a long day of meetings. He appreciates a good steak and I thought this place would hit the spot. The service was spot on. Our server was a very nice lady who introduced herself and said "I will be your server tonight"... I... More

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
