“Honey bear, Eagle river.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Had dinner at the Honey bear in eagle river last night. My wife had a salad she really enjoyed and I had the broasted chicken. The chicken was excellent. I don't know if I have ever had crispier skin on a chicken in my life. Very tender on the inside too. This is a great family restaurant with great service. Looks like a little hole in the wall but you won't be disappointed. Try it out when your in Eagle river.

“Best lunch sandwiches in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Honey Bear has absolutely the best sandwiches for lunch in Eagle River. Sandwiches are huge and its an quaint old fashioned north woods atmosphere. Best of all you can boat there from Eagle River in a few minutes as its on the west end of the chain before you get to the dam.

“Best fish fry around!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Great fish fry on Fridays - fresh fish, light breading, and delicious. Great slaw, fries. There are other items on the menu on Fridays - steak sandwich is terrific. Service is terrific - the bar doesn't cater to wine-lovers, but has good beer selection, great bloody Marys, and (of course) brandy manhattans (no mixes, fine selection of liquor). Free (fresh) popcorn by the bar.

Yes, you may have to wait... but this is a super-friendly place, people to talk to if you wish, an outdoor bar/patio, and a huge backyard for kids. We are there most Fridays in the summer.

“hostility served with a scowl”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

10 senior citizen canoeists on a Road Scholar program went to Honey Bear on the recommendation that the food was good. From the moment we entered the dining room, we experienced a negative attitude that was pervasive throughout the meal. The service was slow, unpleasant and surly. At one point (incredibly) we were told by the hostess/server that if we didn't like it there we should just leave. Nobody in our group has experienced such rudeness in all our travels. Does it matter that the fish fry was good? I don't think so. Jill S
