“Could be better...o.k”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Food was o.k., service was a little slow. Friendly but there is better for similar pricing. It is in a good location. I would go back again if I were in the area.

“Good service and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Although small in size, we were seated right away and had good food and great service. I had a wet burrito and it was very good.

“Great Food and Tavern!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I have been a customer at the B.L.T .( as the local Muskegon populatin calls it) Bear Lake Tavern for several years now. This is truly a Fine Dining Experience! I love the Lake Perch Dinners-So Yummy! This place offers a Huge and Varied menu. The food is so Well-Prepared and Mouthwatering! Prices are not moderate- but for Fine Dining you pay for what you get! Also they offer a great sit down tavern ( with a large and unique liquor selection). The next time you visit the North Muskegon area please visit the Fine Bear Lake Tavern-you will be memorized with this truly Fine Dining Experience!
