The beer, burgers, and pizza are always great. Not as good as in its hey day but still a great place to go.

The Bear Brew Pub has great food. I have been there a few different times. The first time I went with my Dad who was visiting from New York. He had one of the burgers, and said it was really good. Their pizza is amazing! I love the atmosphere and the vibe, especially at night when they have the twinkle... More

I did not come here to eat, I came with 7 others to dance at the nightclub. It was decent music, and a lively crowd. The service was fast & friendly, and the drinks were good, and fair priced.

My family goes here every Tuesday for 2 for 1 pizzas. It's the best pizza. They have a huge selection of beer and if pizza is not your thing they have amazing entrees as well. Kid friendly and wonderful staff. I bring all my friends here.

Clean pub with great beer and even better brick-oven pizza! Tuesdays are BOGO small cheese pizzas and we're regular customers for this deal - so delicious! They have similar deals other days of the week and we occasionally hit those up as well. The staff has always been pleasant, whether dining in or taking out. The only gripe is parking... More

Hadn't been here in probably ten years. My husband and I visited on a weekday around 3pm. The place was empty. The draft beer selection and prices were very good. I ordered a salad with chicken. It was very mediocre. My husband had the Montreal burger. Neither of us will go back for more. We will let the college kids... More

This is definitely a pleasant little pub with great friendly service. Although I am not a beer drinker, most of the group I was with were, and it was interesting to see that they could order what I think was called a "Flight". The flight consisted of 4 or 5 different beers or ales that was listed on a board.... More

The bartender offered me samples, till I found a beer I liked. Very friendly, had the soccer game on, locals were relaxed & enjoying the game. If you like beer & friendly, relaxed atmosphere, this is the place!!

We were a bit underwhelmed... expected more based on the website. A strong point was service... extremely fast and pleasant. Ribs were just ok. DW had battered fish and was disappointed by the lack of flavor. Another plus we as price. Food was affordable and our total check was jus about $40 including s good tip. If we visit again... More
