Great view of the Sawkill while dining. Helpful staff, good food. Nice little intimate bar with engaging bar staff.

“Interesting people watching, but horrifying food...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Weird greasy food swimming in toxic sauces. Everything covered in an inch of batter except the steamed sea bass, which we sent back as it smelled distinctly fishy. It was Christmas Eve which might account for the uncleared tables and overworked staff, but I fear the food is always like that. Give your arteries and taste buds a break and avoid!

“Nice spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Little Bear makes average chinese, but can rightfully charge more because it's such a nice place. Really nontraditional spot for a chinese restaurant. It's been there forever and the smell of it makes me nostalgic. Every year they put up jack-o-lanterns along the opposite bank of the stream.

It's worth paying a little more for the same food for the atmosphere.

“Wish I could say better, but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I have been twice, thinking the first was a fluke. It is authentic Chinese, but we have been sick (both of us, both times) after eating here. The atmosphere is good, and the food comes out in literally 5 minutes, but it is not so great tasting and not so great feeling...I wish that it wasn't the case but...

“Good Chinese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Despite the name this is a Chinese restaurant which sits right next to The Bear Cafe, but don't expect the same excellence as their neighbor. This is average Chinese with a not average price.
