Brunch, burgers, or beers - you'll never be disappointed here

The Black Bear is a North Vancouver gem. Don't go expecting fancy swan-folded napkins or hipster "foodie" food though - this is our cozy community pub, not a Yaletown concept eatery. The Food is good (try the ostrich or buffalo burger!) and the atmosphere is comfortable. Welcome home.

Food is really fresh and good. Try the Bear Patch Salad!! and you can feel proud of your self control and diet OR try the fat boy fries and chicken nugget and just forget about the diet. Beer on tap is a perfect way to beat the heat.

We ate here with a small group of six, the food and service were rather average for a pub, but the atmosphere was really cozy and friendly.

A great place to stop after a hike in Lynn Canyon. Most of our group selected the fish and chips which were on special - tasty moist fish and very good fries (a rarity nowadays). Another tried the pulled pork burger and reported it to be excellent. Made a second visit for brunch and one member declared the omelet to... More

Black Bear is truly a neighbourhood pub - and that says a lot in a location where people have choices about where to eat and drink. The staff are welcoming and the service is excellent. Lots of variety in choices of food and libation. Free parking. Close to public transport.

It is nice to be able to walk from a home in Lynn Valley to dinner. The Black Bear is a local hangout for patrons wishing to have a good meal, quick and not wanting to pay alot of money. Excellent food for the money.

After a walk in the Canadian forest (raining!) we went to a friends local for a pint and a late lunch. Really nice surroundings, lovely local pub. Had a local beer, enjoyed a burger and some delicious wings. Clean, warm, good service, large portions and fair prices. Recommended.

This place had a good variety of beers, not too much to chose from to be overwhelmed. The service was good, burgers were good. Avoid the fish tacos, I have never had tough cod which requires serious pulling and yanking to eat. Atmosphere good, good setting!

We recently moved to Lynn Valley and are so happy to have the Black Bear as our new local. Food is always delicious and everything is decently priced. Have been several times already and have had the brunch, lunch and dinner menus - all were great. We will be back in the near future for sure! Would highly recommend if... More
