“Terrific!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Bear's was a great in every way. We were a party of four looking to get a slice of genuine Kimberley on our vacation and we truly enjoyed Bears. The food and service were unbeatable. JJ was awesome and made our experience great. We would go back in a heart beat! Homemade pies were AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

“FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

With JJ at the front, Bear whipping up some awesome cuisine in the back, mix that with excellent service, friendly smiles and great company you simply can't go wrong! If you really want a winning combination, then next time you're in Kimberley make sure to stop by Bear's Eatery.
Kimberley has some great festivals coming up, so make sure you put it on your bucket list this summer!

“The Best Food you will ever taste.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Had the opportunity to eat at Bear's Eatery on a number of occasions. It was the best food that I have ever had. Pulled Chicken and gravy on bread. Oh so good. The people that own the place will make you feel right at home. Just like family to me.

“Six satisfied diners...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our group of two adults and four teenagers ate supper here while on a ski trip. The restaurant is owned by a husband and wife - he does the cooking and she offers excellent service. Very friendly, prompt service - we were made to feel very welcome and time was even taken to get to know us a bit. We noticed that a lot of local people must eat here as most of the other diners were greeted by name when they arrived. Excellent food and good sized portions. One of our 15 year old boys couldn't even finish his burger - it was so large and accompanied by a huge amount of home-cut fries. The pot pie was delicious and the pastry on top was flaky and melt-in-your-mouth. Steak was cooked to perfection. Macaroni and cheese was excellent, as was the BLT, burgers, and fries. If we return to Kimberley sometime, we won't hesitate to eat here again. Well worth the stop for some wonderful "home cooking".

“Hearty home style food...delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Treated my adult son to brunch at Bears' after a morning hike. Atmosphere is very 'local diner-relaxed". Owners wife was making the rounds with the coffee pot and chatting up all the customers, regulars and first timers alike, like us. She made us feel welcome and was happy to recommend a few popular dishes to help make our choice easier. My son had a massive burger that he rated 'fantastic' and it actually filled his 18 year old stomach. My lunch was just as tasty. Service was fast, despite how busy the place was for a Sunday lunch crowd, the food hot and delicious...not fancy but filling, with generous portions. We visit Kimberley several times a year and will be back to Bears for sure!
