This restaurant has it all, the perfect setting, the most beautiful room on the stream, a fireplace for those cold winter nights and outdoor seating with beautiful views of the stream and woods. We have loved it for over 20 years and always go back. On a recent visit, we found there were some changes to the menu. No more... More

Just loved the feeling of this place; although we went at dusk, we could appreciate the views over the creek. Food was creative and seemed made with fresh ingredients. Service friendly, helpful and efficient. Although the well-healed local clientele can no doubt afford it, we found it a little expensive at $340 for 4 (including tip), so that's the only... More

It was my husband's birthday dinner and we had a reservation on a Friday night. We only waited a couple minutes for our table, by the window along the creek, to be cleared and cleaned for us. The bar was full so we couldn't really get a drink while waiting, but were sat quickly. I recommend waiting for a table... More

Stopped here before a comedy show at the bearville theatre and what a tasty surprise! We luckily got there just at opening because it seems like reservations are preferred. After a short wait they got us in at a cute window table overlooking the creek. The food was great, and although a little pricier than we expected, everything was divine!!!... More

loved the view at this place! the burger was also delicious. they have specials on their website that pretty much are useless to be there since they don't even offer them... besides that though this place was great. table was available as soon as we showed up on a Friday night with reservations.

We found the Bear Cafe in the afternoon and were given a tour by Ray of the theater and grounds. Great renovation in progress. We came back at 5pm and had enjoyed a wonderful dining experience. Nice wine and beer list. Duck breast and halibut were fantastic! If we are in the area again, we will definitely go again!

Eat outside if weather permits. Very nice food and WOW! surroundings, on a porch by a creek. Service was not first rate, but the meal (duck, roast chicken, bourbon cocktail) was quite good.

What a great meal we had at Bear Cafe... this place was so highly recommended both by TripAdvisor reviews, and also by the hosts of the cottage we rented, we just had to give it a try. SO glad we did!! The food was delicious, and creative. Service was excellent. We were stuffed after our meals, but couldn't pass up... More

The new menu at the Bear is super-duper delicious: tuna tartar, lobster salad, burrata with prosciutto...yeah, you want some of this. My halibut was the best I've ever eaten, and I couldn't get over how succulent the salmon was (yes, we were all eating off of each others' plates all night -- it was that yummy). The staff is friendly... More

Locals love the Bear Cafe. Great stream side location, great theater next door for live music. The Bear has been part of Woodstock in some fashion for nearly 40 years now.
