We stopped by the Black Bear for a buger and beer! Great service, fresh cooked hamburger, great bun and lots of toppings to chose from! Thanks!

A beautiful restaurant in an upscale northwoods style. Service was friendly and attentive, but food just average. We have been here for lunch, supper and brunch. I have noticed more than once that my shoes stick to the carpet, it makes me wonder about the cleanliness of the kitchen. We probably won't go back.

We had prime rib here and it was delicious. The restaurant had a north woods look. The whole place reeked of log cabin. Big fireplace, lots of timbers, and food reflecting the north lakes. The prime rib was cooked as ordered. The salad was crunchy and I loved it. The serving staff was attentive. Next time we are in the... More

The pan-fried walleye was delicious, and I enjoyed the rustic setting around the bar on a cold winter's night in northern Minnesota.

My wife and I along with 11 others had our supper there last night, which was the 7th of Dec 14. I had a full rack of BBQ ribs along with a salad etc. The whole party of 13 enjoyed their meals. The service was excellent, from the waitress to the time we got our meal. I would go back... More

Food was as great as the service. Great atmosphere log cabin feel. Friendly staff. We met friends and had a great time. Could sneak a peek at the TV with sporting events around the room. Signed up for the birthday club to earn points for gift cards. We will stop back often.
