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... More

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

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
