Met a friend that was staying out this way for dinner. We both had the fish fry which came with 2 pieces of cod and choice of potato. We both got the fries. Food was good. Could have had one more piece of fish. Sat outside which was beautiful. Very busy place and very crowded inside. Would... read more

We had dinner here on a Friday evening. My wife had cod and I had ribs. The ribs were excellent. We enjoyed the outside seating. Inside was rather warm and crowded. Service was above average. We will return again.

We went on a busy Saturday night. However, the service was quite good and the food was delicious. The burgers, pizza and onion rings were quite good. The fish sandwich was fair and you can definitely find a better one else where. Otherwise, we were all quite happy with our entrees. Stick with the burgers and pizza!

Not much from the outside, bar and family seating inside, nice patio out with ½ dozen picnic tables on a creek. Pizza was very good, friendly staff, solid whiskey sour. Get the "bear droppings" for starters

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.
