Ate there waiting for a flight. Ordered the Philly Cheese Steak. It was not good at all. It looked like it had been left out for a week and then burnt when cooked. The service was also just so, so. Drinks did get re-filled once, but that was it. The quick sub shop across the way made much better looking... More

We stopped in to eat lunch before our flight left. We had a group of 8 people. The service was good, everyone enjoyed their lunch. The waitress allowed us to do seperate bills and was nice.

Great appetizers and quick service. When you first see the line to wait for a table, it will seem long but the tables turn quickly. I love when I have trouble making a decision of what to eat- because there are so many options I like instead of TRYing to find something to eat.

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

What a pleasant surprise the food at Black Bear Saloon is! The standouts were the cheese/veggie quesadilla, buffalo chicken wrap and the veggie panini. Both the sweet potato waffle fries and almost shoe string french fries were delicious! We went for Paint Nite on a Tuesday evening and really enjoyed ourselves. The space was light and airy with high ceilings.Service... More

This review is actually for Black Bear Saloon location in Windsor, CT at Bradley International Airport that is not listed for a review within Tripadvisor. My family had a good start with the nachos appetizer but average finish. We picked this place because it was CT establishment and really did not want a fast food joint before our flight. All...

Not bad or good. The service is so so. Big dining room, long bar, and the service is okay. I had the "BB Bites" which were okay, but pricey for the portion. Way too much socializing amongst the staff while ignoring customers.

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
