Dinner for 2

Good service, ok atmosphere, ok food. We had the homemade rolls & jam, coconut shrimp appetizer, and for entrées; Prime Rib & Salmon. It was all ok- not really any flavor, or anything special. We both ate about half of our dinner- and moved on. We did not think about this place again. I would try... read more

Maybe I should have ordered something other than the soup and salad, but it may have been the worst of both I've ever had! The waitress was darling and did her best, but the garden salad was iceberg lettuce, two grape tomatoes and an odd pile of warm chicken on top. Maybe they threw the chicken on there to be... More

Our first time to visit Bear Lake. The Bear Trapper was recommended to us by the people who worked the front desk at our resort. The location is good and easy in and out. The seating was spacious and the atmosphere rustic and pleasant. The service was great and timely. The portions large and the flavor on target. Everyone throughly... More

We went here for a family dinner and there were nine of us, two of which are vegetarian. There are plenty of options on the menu and the food overall was quite good with fair prices. The service was pretty decent, with only a couple of mistakes with who had what food. Overall the experience was good and I would... More

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 my party.... 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!
