I had 3 hours to kill at Bradley and didn't want to be rushed. I sat down at 4PM and ordered a burger with bleu cheese. The hamburger was perfectly cooked to order with just the right amount of cheese crumbles. French fries were very tasty and hot. One of the best burgers I ever had. Service at this slow... More

One of the few restaurants open in Hartford on Sundays. Good sports bar with plenty of TV's. Sat at the bar and the first bartender was fairly inattentive and unhelpful. However, before our meal was delivered another bartender came on who was very attentive. We ordered the Turkey Avocado Wrap and when it came the avocados were rock hard. The... More

The atmosphere is boring sports bar and the food was poor to average. The veggie burger tasted decent but there was a bug in my salad which made me lose my appetite. The server was ok and the timing was fine.

The ambiance and numerous TV's, including a TV screen at each booth are clearly geared towards a sports bar atmosphere. Service was exceptionally good considering the saloon was packed and there was a line out the door waiting for a table. Ribs were awful. Drinks were delicious. I would go back here for cocktails and appetizers, and perhaps a burger.

Stopped here to grab something to eat before going to a concert at the nearby XL center. Waitress was very poor and spent more time talking to her friends in the bar than waiting on tables. Food was prepared pretty quick but was not that good. Wife had nachos which she said were ok and i had ribs which were... More

I enjoy Black Bear. They have great beer and burger specials. I even went there on a Sunday early afternoon with friends and a boatload of small kids. THe kids meals were great and the staff was extremely accommodating. They even gave us a whole section to ourselves. The only down side I have seen at Black Bear was some... More
