Cozy & Friendly Neighbourhood Pub

I came here for a late night bite with a friend who lives in North Vancouver. I was immediately struck by the relaxed & friendly atmosphere. The pub appeared to be very spacious yet cozy at the same time. Then again, it was a week night & not very crowded. I had the Thai Chicken with gourmet... read more

We were seated immediately and chose to eat on the outside dining area, which was quite pleasant. Our waitress was very friendly and the service quite good. The beers we ordered were excellent and were delivered soon after our order. The food arrived in a timely manner but was disappointing in some aspects. The fish was hot and very good,... More

Visit Date: July 26, 2015 Modern take on a log cabin style restaurant. It is probably just my judgement but the building seemed out of place in a shopping center parking lot. The building and decor seemed to have been done more for the tourist level than my concept of a neighborhood pub. The menu included an extensive collection of... More

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.
