I am a local and this restaurant is one of my favorites to go eat when I am in the mood for a burger, a large hot dog, or a salad. The food is plentiful and really tasty. We know the owners and they are very nice people trying to make a go in a tough place after the summer... More

The service was slow and it wasn't that busy. I was shorted on my change when paying the bill. I couldn't find the waitress so I just reduced my tip by the shortage amount. The food was OK but nothing special.

We're in GA visiting family and we came here for dinner. Great beer choices, TV's for football, and all the locals were there! We had fried okra for an appetizer which we good. And they have the BEST wings! Ask them to grill them. Amazing!

We picked this restaurant due to the Tripadvisor reviews. My family and I stopped in for dinner last night, and had a less than pleasant experience. We walked in to a crowded restaurant, with tables available, but not bussed. There was no sign or anyone to greet us to direct us as to whether we seat ourselves or are seated... More

We have a mountain retreat in Hiawassee and have eaten at this restaurant multiple times with no complaints...the burgers are good as reviews have mentioned. I will however not return. My husband and I decided to have the chili and when we took our first bite it was so salty we were unable to eat it. We told the waitress... More

We almost passed this gem. Not much to look at but what a great place. Casual-family oriented. The service was great and the food excellent. So glad we stopped by.

The words in one country song state "everybody knows everybody.....", and if you stop at Bear Meadows, you will believe it! You become a friend when you enter and a loyal customer when you leave. This isn't "fancy", just a clean, charming, friendly restaurant where you get good food and service at a good price. Check out the Bear Burger.....you... More
