Hamburgers, Fish & Chips, Beef Dip, Sandwiches, Quesadillas and Bear's legendary pot pies freshly made daily are on the menu. For dessert, if you have room, try the "Elvis" or the "Bob Marley" cream pie. The... More

This tiny restaurant is not easy to find but definitely worth the effort. The locals eat here....usually a good sign. "Bear" makes the most awesome pot pies, chicken, steak and mushroom as well as shepherds pie. All are exceptional! Leave room for some delicious desserts too.

We found this gem on Tripadvisor, of all places. Easy to find in the heart of town across from Overwaitea Foods, this little place is run by a loving couple who have retired and made this their life's work. Every item on the menu is prepared with love and the freshest ingredients. I had a flame broiled burger with the... More

Had a great meal in this little spot in Kimberley - good comfort food and the price was right. When we dropped in that night, there seemed to be a lot of locals in there - that's a good sign. Bear's homemade chicken pot pie was delicious and ample and their fish and chips was a large serving and also... More

Stopped here on our family vacation for supper. Service was excellent and the food was amazing. Keep the main dishes small so that you save room for the home made pies ad they are worth it! If in Kimberly again we would absolutely love to stop in again!

The food was excellent. The service was even better. We had the Corn Chowder and the Pizza which was excellent. Other members of the party had the Seafood pot pie and the Chicken pot pie. They raved about it. The pies are home made and you will not be disappointed.

We stopped in for pie -- had the apple and blueberry -- and it was fabulous!! I wish we planned to be there for lunch,... More

If you're in the Kimberley area, I highly recommend stopping by for a meal! The French fries are home made and cooked to perfection! JJ was extremely friendly and welcoming as well!

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. It was quite an extensive menu for a small local eatery but what caught my eye was the liver dinner. I... More

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.
