Excellent spot for a good pint, live music and great food. What more do you need. Been here many times over the past few years, pub pizzas are great, the chowder is excellent. A good pint of Guinness outside of Ireland is hard to come by, they have a great pint of the black stuff here.

We were second to arrive at this restaurant, and hadn't booked. We were told they could fit us, so yes at down, placed our order for a starter and main dish. Unbeknown to us they had taken a larger booking and had messed up on numbers, so part way through out main course they started moving tables around. We courtesy... More

Burgers, wings, pizza. Friendly and clean. Good renditions and very fair pricing. Kitschy and fun decor. We really enjoyed it and it was better than campfire grill in bridgton. We will return, esp for the buffalo chicken which was spicy goodness! Warning, they unfortunately broadcast Red Sox games and have a huge cut out if sobs horrible sox player. Otherwise... More

Used Trip Advisor to find a spot to eat between Bridgton and Westbrook Maine, and this spot was well reviewed, so we tried it. What a great find! It's small, but has outdoor seating too. The staff was friendly. The decor was nice-tin ceilings, big bar,cork menus and faux-leather table tops, with a heavy Guinness theme to the artwork, etc.... More

We stopped here for dinner on a busy Friday night and this place was hopping! The waitress was delightful and very accommodating to our weird dietary restrictions. She even came up with a creative meal suggestion that worked out very well. Vegetarian and gluten-free/dairy-free diets handled. The menu lists their seasonal fare, but the list was not long, so be... More

We are thrilled that you stopped by the Bear - and that we were able to meet your 'weird' dietary requirements, even on an August Friday night , during the height of our season. We have been blessed with sensational musicians all summer and the room erupts into song-alongs, as one of our servers affectionately refers to the occurrence, staff... More

This is by far our favorite go-to dining option. We love the food, staff, owners, and live music. The Black Bear is family to both old and new. It will be for you as well! Give it a try - worth a visit when you're in the Lakes Region.

It is so nice, in the land of lobster, fried seafood and fries, to have a choice of nicely prepared meals, with fresh vegetables, salad, and Irish music in the background! Our group had haddock, shrimp, pork entrees, all delicious. They were quite willing to carefully prepare gluten free dishes for one friend. Prompt, friendly service. We continue to return... More

WOW! Our talented staff, in the front of the house and the kitchen work together to make sure our guests have a great experience.

Just dropped our child off at camp - the Man and I were looking for a place to relax and enjoy. There was the Black Bear Cafe in Naples! Sat outside under tent on a temperature perfect night, serenaded by fiddle, accordion and vocals.... Perfect treat for the Man and I.....

My friend and I discovered The Black Bear Cafe last summer(2014) and loved it. The owner greeted us at the door, we were seated quickly and treated to a lovely, warm, inviting atmosphere. We had the choice of eating in or outside but decided the inside would be cooler. We both had the petite filets and a salad and it... More
