Great Up North Dining Experience!

Great log cabin "Up North" dining experience. Loved the house salad and the walleye sandwich. Rustic decor is a perfect fit for a night out in the north woods. Service was great and food was delicious.

This restaurant is very close to the Days Inn (where we stayed) so we really appreciated finding a great restaurant so close by. The decor is very "up north." Nice friendly bar, great variety of menu selections, and really attentive service. Give it a try!

I had it beer battered. It comes with a generous portion of homemade chips. They were tasty. My companion had two apps (it was happy hour): fish tacos and smoked chicken quesadilla - both delicious.

For the price not impressed. Mixed vegetables some over cooked and some under. Ordered he fillet very bland, over cooked, the baked potato was very under cooked. $30 fillet with what tasted like soy sauce as opposed to Demi.

I ordered the 1/2 sandwich (Reuben) and the lobster bisque. Both were very delicious!!!! The price on that was reasonable. There are more spendy items as well. Very nice atmosphere.

Stopped by for a quick lunch after a visit to Fleet Farm. Had the Ghost Burger with Fries. I enjoy spicy food & that it was. Service was great. Tammy did a fantastic job. Quick, friendly & attentive. Highly recommend.

Came upon the Black Bear about a month ago. I will be living in the area due to work commitment and wanted somewhere friendly, with great food and atmosphere. I found that in the Black Bear Lodge and Saloon. Slowly working my way thru the menu, but my hands down fav is the Cuban Sandwich. Great beers on tap, and... More

We don't mind spending extra money for great food, but this did not warrant the high prices! Steak & Shrimp for $30 and the steak was tiny and tough. SO NOT worth the money when Grizzlys was right down the street!!

We were told by shoppers in Costco to eat at the Black Bear Lodge and wouldn't you know it....Those who spoke highly of it were actually there when we arrived. The manager himself came over to visit and ask questions of our travels, etc. I thought was was very considerate of him.

We were driving through town and wanted a sit down breakfast. We were ushered into the breakfast buffet even though I think just their restaurant seating was available. I really didn't care until after we saw what the buffet was. I am sorry, but $15.50 for a small salad bar, nasty eggs, and pathetic chicken with nothing to drink but... More
