We had dinner here while staying at the adjacent Quality Inn. It was fine. The meatloaf was okay but the gravy seemed canned. Maybe just kept warm too long. The taco salad was pretty good. And large. Our server recommended the bread pudding and it was good. Kind of as expected for a chain restaurant - fine.

The wait was long to be seated but it was worth it. The food came out quickly and was perfect. Our server was very attentive. It is a family favorite and we will continue to go back.

Breakfast selection and quality above average and of a reasonable price. Poor service. O.J. was served warm and not cold as it should be. Tasted freshly squeezed. Chefs questionable on cleanliness standards. Tattoos always speak unclean to me. No gloves observed. Last time didn't get sick. Hopefully same result this time. Better than Ihop across the street.

When in AZ this is one of my favorite places to have breakfast. Big protions, fast service and delicious food. The menu is large so you may want to review online before going there or it could take you a while to decide. The pancakes are AMAZING; light, fluffy, and HUGE. Mine actually was hanging off the plate. If you're... More

I went here today with a good friend and my youngest daughter. I order the french toast bear platter. I was a bit underwhelmed with the french toast. It was good but not great. However my daughter and friend both had pancakes. The baby had the kids menu chocolate chip pancakes. They are full sized adult sized pancakes but those... More

We stopped at the Bear and found it wanting. Three out of the four of us were not satisfied with their meal. Two had the pork cutlet, one had a chicken combination a and all agreed that the preparation was poor in flavor and texture. Maybe it was a bad day - and no we did not complain to the... More

I finally drove by and didn't see a crowd waiting outside for a table. Now I know why they wait. The homemade spicy sausage patties and eggs were great. The accompanying home style potatoes were awesome. The service was exceptional and the prices were reasonable. The decor is 'different' and I will be back again (if the wait isn't too... More
