Food was tasty and good. Specials lead to a menu that is a little different every visit, which is nice. Service is attentive. It is certainly a favourite in wells. Sometimes there is music at an outdoor stage, sometimes there is a fire outside to help keep you warm. Recommended!

Canoeists will know Wells because it is the last stop before the Bowron Lakes Circuit. The Bear´s Paw Cafe is worth a stop for a very decent dinner before or after entering the outdoors. We were three adults and a three old boy and had dinner there. We ordered the fresh pita read with tsaziki, the burger and the salmon... More

This is an awesome place to eat. This was my first time in Wells and the first time at the Bear's Paws. We tried two other places in Wells but none compare. I would recommend reservations because it is not that big and the place can fill up very quickly because it is popular as I was later to find... More

The food here is excellent, well prepared and served and the ribs and enchilada are worth a long trip. Make sure that you get there early, there's usually a big line up!!

This is outstanding place to eat, it could compete with any good restaurant in a city. The food is always wonderful, the service friendly. I go to "The Paw" anytime I am in Wells, and have never been disappointed. I would recommend reservations because it is not that big and big groups can fill it up for the night. There... More

This is a great place to eat and meet others who have done or are setting out on the Bowron lake chain.

I love seeing a place run this way: small, changing menu, fresh ingredients and thoughtful, skilled preparation. The owners are clearly passionate about their work and it shows in the food and the decor. I had salmon with roasted red pepper sauce, seasonal sauteed veggies, and a green salad. It was one of the best meals I had in a... More

We enjoyed our family dinner here- there is a reasonable menu... bison burgers, salmon, ribs, salads, and indoor / outdoor seating. The service was excellent and friendly from the owners and staff (Stan). There is a small gift shop next door which sells wonderful arts and crafts, and small items for the children. We would definitely recommend going here for... More
