We really enjoy Bear Meadows and have become "regulars". They have GREAT hamburgers and their dinner specials as well as entrees are huge, delicious and priced well. The wait staff is casual and friendly, eager to please. Do not expect a romantic restaurant, but if you want a casual dining experience I think you'll enjoy it.

We enjoyed a late lunch here as we passed through town. It was not busy and the wait staff were good. We had a special flounder sandwich and chicken fingers. Both were large portions and delicious. A good stop for lunch if you're in the area.

I have been to this restaurant a number of times and my experience keeps getting worse...to the point that I will not be back. The service is very slow especially if the restaurant is busy. There are often only 2 servers for about 50 people. At my last visit however my companion's hamburger arrived raw in the middle. When he... More

We had fun sitting outside overlooking pretty geraniums in baskets hanging next to out tables. Service was excellent and very friendly. Even when our server got busy, the owner, Christine, stepped in to help plus she made some excellent menu suggestions. Burger and clams were good and the pecan pie with ice cream was delicious! We will be back again!

We stopped in for lunch on our way through town. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 sandwiches. The mozzarella sticks were good but the crab bites were very average. They tasted like they were from the freezer section of any grocery store. Our sandwiches were very good. We had the shrimp cake sandwich and buffalo chicken sandwich. The shrimp sandwich... More

Heading out of town and was trying to find a bakery that was listed on trip advisor but it wasn't open (closed for the season) so stopped by here and asked if they could put a scoop of chicken salad on a salad (instead of a sandwich) to go that I could eat outside somewhere. They did. Food was good.... More

The food is absolutely wonderful. If you want a burger that will change the way you view burgers this is the place for you. The soup made from scratch and the specials are to die for. I have eaten here many times and there's a reason for that. The staff is friendly and attentive. I will always recommend The Meadows!

We met friends at the Bear Meadows specifically for their Friday night Prime Rib dinner. We had "heard" how good it was and thought it about time to find out for ourselves. Wow...a great cut of Prime Rib, exactly how I ordered it (Rare). The portion was more than we could consume and take home boxes abounded. The staff was... More

This place is a quiet and wonderful clearing in a jungle of fast food joints. The food is simply excellent in terms of quality and quantity. The service is very effective, friendly, and welcoming, with the waitress knowledgeable about the menu and the local area. The restaurant manager / owner was a really nice lady to talk to. We were...

I ohave never in my life been told that there was no room for me at a restaurant!! Came in after our daughter's away basketball game at Towns County and the place was packed, and looked like Bingo?! The hostess said "sorry I have nowhere to seat you." Didn't even ask if we'd like to wait. If you're not going... More
