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.

Uncle Bear's Brewpub

This is a nice brewpub. We've gone back several times, so we must like it! The food and service are good, and the beer is cold!

The twist is that you're welcome to bring your dog if you'd like to sit outside to eat/drink. Inside, well, this is a sports bar. If you happen to come in on a night when there is a good game on TV, the noise level is quite loud (between the tvs and the patrons). My advice is to come if... More

Things can get pretty lively around here, Cathy, so I'm sure other users will appreciate the tip on when the best times to come in are. I know not everyone is into the sports scene, so they'll appreciate coming in on a quieter evening. I'm glad that everything tasted well, so thanks for stopping by. We look forward to welcoming...

I have been to Uncle Bear's a few times over the years. Most of the staff is pretty nice and efficient; however, there are a few nut cases; we had one waitress ask us if it was okay for her to take our leftovers for herself...a little stunned when she asked that. Service is average and the food is good;... More

I would feel pretty awkward if my server asked if they could take my leftovers, so I'm sorry that happened to you, Beverley. I have never heard of such a thing and only assume the waitress was kidding and could of been misunderstood. While that sounds like a unique situation, to hear that service is average is a let-down.

We didn't feel like cooking and didn't want fast food so we headed over to Uncle Bears. We had good service, good food and they were able to accomodate 8 of us without any trouble.

I love this spot. Rather you want something for lunch, or a spot to hang with friends and have a drink, this is the place. You can also bring your dog. I don't have one, but if i did, i would bring it.

While you might not have a dog of your own, I'm thrilled you always have a doggone good time with us! Whether you're here for lunch or some drinks with a friend, it's great to hear you always enjoy yourself. Thanks for the rave review -- we look forward to seeing you next time.

Came for lunch with customers and when I looked at the cluster of a menu was a little concerned. It was definitely a confusing and odd set up.. Mostly beer and pub food and not much healthy items to choose from. The place was very quiet but server was very good. The burger was actually very good. I didnt have... More

Sub par bar food. Extremely salty, even my salt loving hubby complained. My grilled chicken tacos were lacking any evidence of grilling (such as grill marks). Just blah! We decided to try it for kids eat free on Wednesdays, but we will not be back.

Todd C, Owner at Uncle Bears, responded to this review

Extremely salty doesn't sound like my ideal meal either, so it's disappointing to hear that it wasn't up to par. I wish we could have left you with a better first impression, but I know my team can deliver on a meal you'll absolutely love. If you'll have us, we'd like to invite you back for another chance to truly... More

Uncle Bears is a fun place to go especially if you have a dog and if you like to watch sports on tv. They allow you to bring your dog to the outdoor seating. I liked the food but it is VERY LOUD so don't expect a relaxing experience.

I apologize if things can get a little noisy, Janine. It certainly gets lively around here, but I hope that you can relax all the same. With that being said, I'm glad you seem to always have a fun time with us, and we look forward to seeing you again. All the best, Josh More

Service was horrible! didn't get a refill on drink and server passed our table 10 times. It wasn't busy and our food took over 40 min to get to our table. The food was disgusting. I ate 3 bites of their burger and it was the worst burger I have ever ate. Don't waste your time here. Save your money... More
