Big Bear has been a longtime favorite of mine and my family. The Brie Pillow and the Beer Munster Cheese soup are among my favorites. Consistent and pleasant all the time

We stopped here for lunch after a 2 hour tour of the Everglades. The restaurant/brewery is tastefully decorated. I had the cold fresh brewed Belgian beer. My wife had a cocktail and it was good. My son had the spaghetti and marinara sauce which he liked. We ordered the onion haystack which was phenomenal. I ordered the French toast from... More

This restaurant is great. The food was excellent. I had the large "House salad" to start and it was fabulous. How many times can you say that? Then I had "The Bear Burger" and it was absolutely top notch. I combined this with a glass of their homemade beer- Grizzly Red Ale (which was All Pro). Finally, I had the... More

Love this place. One of our favorites. Busy but worth any wait. Quality food and excellent service. A+ if you want to enjoy an evening with friends or a family night out.

Wow! The food! I had a pasta dish with shrimp (you can also get chicken). Although I can't remember the name, it is the only pasta dish on the menu. It was the best pasta I've ever had. Absolutely delicious! I didn't sample any of the beers, but several people in my party did, and they enjoyed. The setting and... More

In a city that is somewhat short on good places to eat, this is easily one of the most popular spots in town. Has good food, superlative brewed-in-house beers, always popular with long waits for tables at weekends, sophisticated decor, lighting and ambiance. The service is prompt and decent but rarely exceptional and sometimes feels a little hectic and impersonal.... More

My husband and I had dinner here. We both got the French Dip made with thinly sliced prime rib. Our waiter informed us that the sandwich is served cold and the meat is rare, but it comes with hot au jus for dipping. He said they could heat the sandwich up but the meat would get overcooked and not taste... More

This was a "Great Find" on our way to the Coral Springs Center for the Arts. Very clean, nice atmosphere, quickly seated, and waited on by friendly yet professional Alex (She). Alex recommended the Skirt Steak with garlic mashed potato. It was delivered as requested and was very tender. This will be an automatic re-order on my next visit. For... More
