We're visiting family a week before the Canada Day weekend and dropped by the Bear's Eatery a bit before their closing but we were welcomed in and the charming waitress took our drink order while we reviewed the menu.

I've been here a few times and really enjoy everything about it. Food is really good and portions are huge. Desserts are great. Service is always fun and friendly. Bear and JJ have a great place here. Family table is a nice perk! Thanks for making this spot so fun and tasty.

We have been to the restaurant on two separate visits to Kimberley now and loved it both times. The food is home made and delicious. If you get fries make sure you get the gravy it is the best I have had! Friendly welcoming service.
