Uncle Bear’s Grill and Bar is an upbeat, fun establishment that has been a neighborhood favorite for the last 12 years. All 4 Valley (Phoenix, Arizona) locations feature the same unique decor (all the places you would find Bear - the owner’s former Dog lying around) such as hints of the home, backyard, garage and neighborhood. The menu is quite extensive with gourmet burgers, unique pastas, thin crust pizzas, fabulous fajitas and some good ol’ BBQ. We offer a full bar with fantastic margaritas and some of the tastier local microbrews. We display over 20 plus flat-panel TV’s for all your sports viewing pleasures and free peanuts where you can toss the shell right on the floor.

We often go there on the Harley, cold beer and Good food. The wife and I split the dinners because they re so big. Bring your dog, and the kids. Sometimes you'll have to wait, but not very often. The staff is great. Hope you like free peanuts- just dump the shells on the floor....:)

"Underwhelmed" is a kind word to describe our experience here. Service was slow, albeit courteous. Our server was friendly and helpful but way too busy to attend to us in a timely manner. The food was so-so. My chicken tacos contained very little actual chicken and were lukewarm at best. I was served a beer flight with five selections of... More

We are local and have been coming to Uncle Bears since they opened their Queen Creek resturant. Their service seems to have been reducing in quality each time we go. Tonight it took 15 minutes for a water refill, and we had to ask to have our main entries ordered. Also, the menus were left at the table and little... More

This is a cute dog-themed restaurant. Loved the free peanuts in dog bowls on the tables? The walls are covered with dog pictures. TVs are plentiful to watch sports. Although children are welcome, it's really mor of a bar than a family restaurant.

Neighborhood sports bar and grill. Went with the family here a few times and it was ok. Must have been short staffed on this visit. Waited about 15 minutes before even getting to place order, then it was wrong. The correct order finally came, (a basic burger for me and the gang) and it was ok - nothing special. Not... More

I'm sorry to hear we didn't exactly knock it out of the park for you -- especially since you've been here a couple of times. While you eventually got what you ordered on this particular visit, there shouldn't have been a mess-up in the first place. With all that, we greatly appreciate your candid feedback. I know you wrote this... More

We used to come in all the time and it was always great, but since they've changed the menu it seems the focus is all there and not as much on service. I even found a new favorite on the menu (lemon chicken sizzle) after they took my old favorite (thai chicken pasta) off. The first few times I ordered... More

The fact that you feel we're going downhill doesn't sit well with us, Nicole. True, we've put great focus in revamping our menu and our craft beer -- but that doesn't mean our service should fall by the wayside. Even if we can't immediately seat you, our employees should acknowledge you and make sure you're taken care of as quickly... More

If you haven't been there yet you need to get going. Bear was the name of the owners dog and the theme is all about dogs. It's a fun sports bar that offers good food, drink and sports on T.V. With dog bowls on the tables filled with peanuts, dog fences and dog collars hanging off of them and they... More

Digging the title of your review! True, we are definitely not subtle with the dog theme, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Sounds like everything was spot on with good food, drinks, and sports on TV! I know you wrote this review a few months ago, but I just wanted to say thanks for the compliments. Besides coupons,...
