Service was great, but there was a food mix-up.

Me and my family of 22 had reserved three tables way ahead of time. The party before us was taking a bit longer than expected, so there was about a 15 minute wait. When we finally got to our tables, the service was great, and they were very fast. I ordered the classic cheeseburger, as did many of... read more

If you want an alternative to all the greasy drive inn food that Garden City has to offer, there are not many options. The Bear Trapper has a good selection of burgers, sandwiches, salads, pasta, steak and other entrees. The food was better than the drive inn food. The fries that came with the burgers were really good. The vegetable... More

I was in Bear Lake with my family and we were looking for something that was local and not too expensive. We drove by the Bear Trapper Steak House and we decided to try it. We love it! It was not very expensive but the portions were pretty good size. We loved the service and the quality of the food... More

Nice inside - loved the decor. Breakfast was good. Service was great. This was located toward the center of town. We ate breakfast here because our motel, which was way bad, did not offer that. It was a great breakfast. The pancakes were huge and fluffy. The raspberry syrup was fabulous.

Went for breakfast - it tasted like a TV dinner from the 50's. The decor is cute but the rest - do not try it!

Let's face it, there really isn't any good food in Bear Lake with the exception of raspberry shakes. That said, the Bear Trapper isn't bad. The service is quick and friendly and the food is pretty good for Bear Lake. I'd definitely go again. Giver the choices it is one of my favorites.

Went here for breakfast with my parents, husband and 20 month old. They had a good kids breakfast, reasonable prices. 'Small town' look to the restaurant but very clean and the food was really nice. All the seating is in booths but they had some massive booths to accomodate a large group. The menu for dinner looked good, we wish... More

My wife ordered the chicken chili Verde. It was very good, and I would give it a 5 star. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich, and specifically asked if it was freshly made, and the waitress said enthusiastically yes. It was awful, and tasted rancid and old. The fries were excellent, and my wifes mashed potatoes were delicious. The waitress... More
