Uncle Bear’s Grill and Bar is an upbeat, fun establishment that has been a neighborhood favorite for the last 12 years. All 4 Valley (Phoenix, Arizona) locations feature the same unique decor (all the places you would find Bear - the owner’s former Dog lying around) such as hints of the home, backyard, garage and neighborhood. The menu is quite extensive with gourmet burgers, unique pastas, thin crust pizzas, fabulous fajitas and some good ol’ BBQ. We offer a full bar with fantastic margaritas and some of the tastier local microbrews. We display over 20 plus flat-panel TV’s for all your sports viewing pleasures and free peanuts where you can toss the shell right on the floor.

I love this place. When I get in from the airport I stop here and grab a comfortable meal with these friendly folks. Garlic Parmesan fries are sinfully yummy, everything's just great.

I've been to Uncle Bears multiple times over the 3 years I've lived in San Tan Valley, and it's an awesome restaurant/bar with an outdoor seating area. The outdoor patio is dog friendly (and encouraged) and the restaurant inside has a fun atmosphere. The food is really good, my favorite is the Pulled Pork sliders. There are plentiful amounts of...

After just arriving in AZ we enjoyed beers and lunch here! It was a fun place with great service. The theme is based around shelter dogs and dog lovers. We enjoyed a flight of beers which were phenomenal! Lunch offered a lunch menu so we had ordered from there and the main menu. Flavor is of a typical bar and... More

This is a pretty nice restaurant. Our family of five had dinner here on a Sunday night. They have a lot of tvs which are perfect to watch the games on. The food was really good and was priced just right. The outside eating area is perfect to enjoy the beautiful weather of AZ.

Driving through Queen Creek and stopped at Uncle Bear's for late lunch. Excellent Philly Cheese sandwich. Very friendly atmosphere with lots of TVs for sports and very good food.

We've always enjoyed going to Uncle Bear's. We appreciate the servers (Mark was our most recent and he's a dandy), the ambiance, the dog photos all over, and the occasional dog.

Had a fun, enjoyable first visit this evening. Started with a cheddar fries appetizer, recommended by our server. It was a much-appreciated recommendation. We followed it with some zesty garlic parmesan wings and the tasty pulled pork lettuce wraps. We watched a baseball game on one of several TVs inside the restaurant; but they also have a large patio seating... More

The twist is that you're welcome to bring your dog if you'd like to sit outside to eat/drink. Inside, well, this is a sports bar. If you happen to come in on a night when there is a good game on TV, the noise level is quite loud (between the tvs and the patrons). My advice is to come if... More

I have been to Uncle Bear's a few times over the years. Most of the staff is pretty nice and efficient; however, there are a few nut cases; we had one waitress ask us if it was okay for her to take our leftovers for herself...a little stunned when she asked that. Service is average and the food is good;... More
