On our was from Pittsburgh to Columbus we decided to find a place to eat some dinner. Found this place on TA so we plugged it in google maps and easily located it. Not really out of our way as it was just 2 miles off of the RT70 exit. We found the place as others described. Quite comfy and... More

A great place with friendly employees and wonderful food! Always take our out of town family and guests there when they are in town. The steaks and seafood are excellent. Never had a bad meal!

I highly recommend anyone come here for dinner or lunch. Such great atmostphere! Friendly staff! Great service! Food is always good! Beer is always cold! The steaks are the best. But just about anything is good too. We always get an order of Texas toothpicks. Yummy!

Cass, it sounds like you're quite the regular! I'm a fan of anyone who's a fan of the Texas toothpicks and cold beer -- talk about a winning combination. Looking forward to seeing you again next time. Take care, Chef Steve More

Was staying with other family members at my brother in laws farm. He suggested we get a steak for dinner and found this place. Party of six and were immediately seated. Steaks and burgers are their specialty, and portions were huge and very good. Excellent food and the service was outstanding. Don't miss this place. The decor alone is a... More

Met a group there for dinner and was very surprised with the quality of the food. This restaurant is a bit committing to get to but very well worth it. Very generous portions, excellent steaks (from what i was told-I had the ribs). The ribs were great. Rustic feel. Service is good but a bit slow. Would definitely go back... More

We thought this was simply a small local place, but it was so much more! It is a drive out of town right in the middle of --- nature --- not Cambridge. BUT, take the drive; it is so worth it. The rustic Bear's Den greets you with a 12 foot bear totem holding a "Bear's Den" sign. The log... More
