Bear Creek has the best burgers in Pagosa and a great selection of beer on tap. I can't speak about other menu items, because I always seem to gravitate to a burger ( particularly like the Pagosa Burger with green chile strips and cheese). Even their veggie burger is good. Nice enclosed patio for warm days. Service is generally good... More

We ate here last night after being recommended by many people. This was a Tuesday night. When we walked in the door NO ONE greeted us. After about 5 minutes of waiting to be seated the bar tender yells for us to sit anywhere we want. Ok... So we found a table and sat for another 15 minutes before even... More

We waited an hour for our food and nothing!! We asked the server how much longer, and she said she didn't know and that there was only one cook "back there." That doesn't explain how everyone else around (that arrived after us) had their food. We have a 6 month old baby, had our dogs in the car, and just... More

In their defense they were short staffed and had a "help wanted" sign in the window, but the amount of time it took to receive food was ridiculous! Our server was very friendly and tried her best. The food we ordered was just ok, lots of options in Pagosa you might want to find other until they get more staff.

We realize that this place doesn't have the highest rating in the town, but we asked locals where the best burger was, and this was recommended. They were not wrong. This was the juiciest burger we have had in a while. Don't miss it for a burger and beer!

The service was slow and the food was mediocre, don't expect greatness (unless your going for drinks). The bar prices were really reasonable, but that might be the only positive I could report for our visit.

Super burgers and beer. Great bar atmosphere. They always welcome you are you arrive, and the beer is cold and the green chili is hot. Being from New Mexico, the green chili 'hot' review is honest. I had the Pagosa burger and my date had the green chili smothered burger. Curly fries mandatory. Great place to watch a game, hang... More

Wasnt really happy with the food or atmosphere. Flavors were ok but food quality seemed off. Was a sports bar atmosphere which isnt what we were looking for

We eat here every time we vacation in Pagosa. Even when we walk in on Christmas Day everyone greets us with a smile & makes us feel welcome! Our most recent trip we shared the pork nachos which are layered full of goodness! Our daughter had the jalapeño cream cheese burger which was so great we are going to try... More
