Good for Bear Lake

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

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
