Good food, great location, plenty of tvs for sports fans!! No gluten free pizza yet, but they do have salads and entrees that meet the needs of those of us with food allergies. Reasonable prices.

We actually came here because the outdoor area description sounded quite lovely. When we arrived at the restaurant we were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was. Well, we should have called ahead of time because the patio was closed for a private party. Nuts. Inside, the interior looks like every other Northwoods bar, but they definitely seem like they...

After we had already ordered, the kitchen experienced equipment problems so they could only offer us pizza. We should have left, but felt committed and the employees were very friendly. We had 4 different pizzas, and they were very ordinary and not inexpensive.

Bar food. Good appetizers especially the jalapeño pepper poppers and fried cheese curds but not so great burgers. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was good.

Fantastic pizza and great atmosphere for kids. We recommend Black Bear to all of our resort guests and nobody is ever disappointed. We would, however, like for Black Bear to develop a dessert menu.

Went for lunch with family and had a nice time - went straight through the bar to the tables and VERY nice patio in back/outside :) Bar inside is insanely covered in stuffed dead animals, wasps nests, crazy but fun, very North Woodsy and friendly. Food was fine - decent but not great pizza, sandwiches looked good, small lettuce salad... More

Have been here a number of times, the food is about what you'd expect for a bar. The pizza is the most edible option. Other things... well, did I mention there's a bar? They have live music on weekends, moreso in summer, of wide variety, so I'll keep coming back! They don't rely on "rock" bands that make their living... More

We stopped for a Sunday lunch. The menu is primarily beef or fried. There is a grilled chicken breast and buffalo chicken wrap made with grilled chicken. The buffalo chicken wrap was very tasty and messy - need extra napkins! There wasn't any silver ware on the table, so I had to request a fork. The sides that come with... More

This was my first time eating breakfast here and the food and service was good. Our waitress was training a new waitress and they both did an excellent job, will definitely be coming back!
