Stopped into this place on my way to the UP after reading other reviews. Initially I had thought about going to the Sugar Bowl again, but I have never been in love with that place. The place looks like a big brown house, right on the main street in downtown Gaylord. There's a parking lot in back. A decent selection... More

Clean. Bright. Friendly. Really good food, really. If you are stopping in Gaylord, head East and go by the chain fast food places. This is much better.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on the way back downstate. We wanted sandwiches and found this deli on tripadvisor. I had the big bear combo and he had the Reuben. Both were toasted and delicious. Very fresh Boar's Head meats. Grabbed a bear claw on the way out and it was great as well! Good prices, great... More

The eating area is small but the food is made to order and always fresh. The coffee is great as well. This is a must stop on my trips to Gaylord.

The homemade mac-n-cheese is the best. And they also make great sandwiches ! I have used their services for catered events. Wonderful deck seating to enjoy warm weather.

Went to this establishment for lunch in September while in Gaylord for work. Had the Honey Maple Turkey sandwich on rye with sharp cheddar and lettuce w/ honey mustard. They sandwich was great, and you get a lot of meat.. and it's Boars Head meat, which is good stuff.. It's a little pricy, but for Gaylord I guess that's expected..... More

A top notch menu, quality food, clean well kept, great atmosphere eatery. Fair prices from a local family owned establishment. Dining at a franchise restaurant could mean you have cheated yourself out of a great dining experience. Highly recommended and sure not to disappoint.

Big Bear is by far the best deli around the area. Super fresh salads and sandwiches, and the Asian noodle salad is the best I've ever had. Yum! Always super clean environment here too, wonderful owners. Don't miss stopping in for a delicious pastry or two as we'll!
