“Spot on!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We ate here this evening because all we wanted after a day of skiing was a good pizza and beer. We were not disappointed! We ordered 2 pizzas on the special deal for 10 each and steins of beer for 9. Pizzas were excellent and we loved the suggestion of putting honey and chilli oil on them. Something we would never have tried but it was amazing! Service was v.good and we were seated quickly with no reservation. Excellent!

“A good family dinner after a day of skiing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We just happened to walk by this restaurant and walked in. We were greeted with a smile and seated right away. The food was good, service very pleasant. My kids liked the pizzas and bison meatballs. I loved the rose sangria...had 2 large glasses it was so delicious! The salads are big portions and are shareable. We shared the banana split and of course enjoyed it! Great place!

“Favorite Resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Bear Street Tavern is our new favorite!

Great atmosphere, friendly service, and delicious food!

The ceasers are the best in town and I'd say the pizza is probably the best too!

“Probably won't go back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We selected this restaurant based upon an internet sites suggested dining spots. The first night we tried to dine here, the wait was so long, we just made reservations for the next night. We went the next night and were seated promptly. We found the menu to be limited. We ordered pizzas and mac and cheese (one of their specialties, we heard). The Mac and Cheese was so bland, the worst I have ever had. It looked good, but no taste. The pizzas were all so salty!!! And I like salt, but they were too salty for me. We won't go back. There are other places in town with wonderful pizza, you don't need to go here for pizza.
