We stopped in for lunch on the recommendation for some great hamburgers. They did not disappoint. The place is certainly not fancy and there isn't a ton of room, but it's worth squeezing in for some food. Service was prompt and friendly and they were clearing tables to make room as fast as they could. Except for our seven year... More

Get there early because the Hungry Bear fills up fast. This one-room, cabin-style eatery has long tables in the center and tables with two to four seats along the walls. There is also a counter where regular customers are invited to hang their own coffee mugs for use when they come in. They offer all the standard breakfasts, most in... More

Inexpensive high quality breakfast for the price. Eggs with home fries patty sausage. The rest of the party pancakes which they said were good.

The quantity of food here is amazing and it is so good...especially like the fried bread dough, but you really only need 1/2 of an order. Enjoy eating here.

My favorite go to restaurant for home style country cooking. All the dishes are made on the premises. Great breakfast and dinner specials. Great Home made pies! Sometimes service is slow and drink refills are always problematic.

We eat here on occasion and usually fair to good but lately it's a real toss up as to amount and quality. Last time perch were reheated and Mac and cheese inedible. ???

No subtle dishes, no culinary surprises, just basic good breakfast food that should quickly deal with any hunger one might feel at the start of a day. Even at 9:30 on a weekday(workday) the place is full or mostly so, and there's a buzz of people enjoy good food. It's nothing spectacular, but well prepared and hearty portions(be careful if... More

I like to try local restaurants rather than the chains, so on a recommendation we tried the Hungry Bear. The place was packed but the waitress were friendly and efficient. Our food was served quickly and true to order. It was delicious and the coleslaw was outstanding. We were going to skip dessert but then we heard they had homemade... More

Been there three times and food is good. Atmosphere is a little on the low end. Can be very very busy. First time they got both of our orders wrong and very few people there. Next two times packed and food was right but just average. Only there for breakfast.
