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... read more

This place is average in every way. Why do we go then you ask? Because if you want to go to Bear Lake for dinner this is about it except for some mexican food or pizza. We are from south Texas so we'll skip the mexican. Look at my other reviews for a much better place to go we found... More

We went in for late lunch/early dinner and practically had the place to ourselves. The waitress was very attentive without hovering. The kids' meals came out at the perfect temperature for them to eat right away, which is awesome when you have hungry 2 and 3 olds waiting. The cheeseburger was perfectly cooked and the fries are really good. The... More

We went there for dinner. The place is neat ( rustic ). Our waitress was nice and efficient. We had the Prime Rib. Roll and raspberry jam was good. Baked Potato was nice hot and flaky but the Prime Rib how ever left some to be desired. The flavor was fine but for a "Slow roasted " piece of meat... More

The food was all right but nothing to shout about. It took awhile to be seated and then awhile to be served. We had young kids and they were bouncing off the ceiling by the time the food came. When we walked in, of course I asked if they offered Raspberry shakes. The host said, "Oh, if you want that,... More

The Bear Lake area has a lot of great burger places but it was nice to find a sit down restaurant with a larger selection. Our family ordered the shrimp skewers, the seafood pasta, and a few more dishes. Everything was good and portions were decent sizes. The pastas come in petit and large sizes. My family ordered petit and... More

We hoped to enjoy a nice lunch. When we arrived, we were told that the restaurant was full and that it would take about 15 minutes to be seated. Fine. We had the hostess place our name on the “list” so that we really would be the next people served, and told her we’d visit their gift shop next door.... More

We were taking both my grandson and my mother in-law out for a birthday breakfast (yes they share the same birthdate). We arrived at the restaurant at 10:31 and asked to order breakfast, but were refused stating they were now on the lunch menu (which started at 10:30). I understand that to switch to lunch service you have to change... More

My wife and I enjoyed our Tuesday evening dinner here. I had the Grand Platter and she had Pulled Pork. Both were excellent.

The Bear Trapper Steak House is geared toward large families with most of the seating arrangements for parties of 6 and up. There are tables for 2 and they accepted us with open arms so we found the restaurant cozy for breakfast. Prices were great and so was the service. Large restrooms caught me off guard. The Bear Trapper is... More
