First...no spinach salad..out of product. Next...hungarian golash with crispy spatzle. Oh dear. Sauce was tasteless n tasted reheated. The mgr said it was frozen product that was sauteed. Just bad food...cannot imagine how this place has rated high. Horrible experience.

Took my son-in-law out for his birthday. Nice atmosphere and very clean. Had steaks, brisket, and chicken meals. All very good. My wife and daughter are very selective on food selections and Black Bear meets our needs!

Definitely try them for your side! IPA craft beer if the month was great,too. Also enjoyed the home-made bread with honey butter. Wonderful north woods feel with Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand and old standards playing softly. Very warm, comfortable atmosphere. Only negative was the prime rib was a little too fatty, but I will definitely be back!

My friend and I went to dinner on a Sunday night. We shared the wilted salad with HOT bacon dressing..... it was absolutely delicious!!!!!! We then shared the shrimp pasta, very good! We sat on the bar side. Service was good too. I would go back just for the salad! YUM!! The beer was cold too:}

We went for Sunday brunch and found the food to be fine, but not great. Our shoes actually stuck to the carpeting, which didn't do much for our comfort level. The person making the omelets was moving very slowly and was so far behind that we were done with the rest of our food before he had finished making the... More

We sat on the bar/restaurant side of the building, there is also a more formal dinning room on the other side. The service was friendly and quick. We ordered the Mahi Mahi fish tacos which were really fresh and tasty as well as the Walleye fish sandwich which was also fresh and delicious. Other than the we had the spinach... More

Expect a long wait time even when not crowded. Food has little to no flavor and freshness is questionable. Salads are on part with McDonald's and entrees are on part with Perkins or Country Kitchen. Will not be back.

Complimentary hotel breakfast was getting a little old so we decided to try the Sunday brunch. There is a huge selection! Combination of breakfast and lunch items and something for all appetites. Can order a made to order omelet in addition to all the buffet items. Juice is included. Coffee extra. Service was good. Food was decent.

Burger Bar Night! They made the burger for you and then had many toppings you could add to your burger to make to your liking! AWESOME! Best burger in a long time! You could add fries or onion rings for extra charge. I have eaten here several times over the years and never been disappointed!
