Family was looking for a basic dinner, and Mama Bear's delivered. Waitress was friendly, and kept our drinks filled. Meatloaf special was just like Mom's, and the burgers while basic, were good and filling. Fries were great, both with the burgers, and on the poutine.

We ate at Schmoozes and at Mama Bears driving to/from Canada and neither was good. At Mama Bears the waitress wasn't happy when we asked for a spoon and then some more mayo. The food was OK, but not great and when lunch costs $50 with tip I expect it should be better and the waitress should be pleasant. We... More

Busy when we visited Jackman because of few other eateries and uneven hours. Seemed popular with locals. Cooking was filling.

One of us reviewed pics on TripAdvisor and one chk'd out website. Decision to eat there was based on website. TripAdvisor pics are representative of the restaurant vs the website seems inaccurate to food quality and presentation. We ordered chicken fingers and steak salad. Both were ok but neither were noteworthy. Service was average.

Food is excellent! We had breakfast one day and lunch the next. Service was fair the first day and about the same the second. I think they need more than one waitress but the food was worth it.

We arrived at the restaurant at 7:50 and saw that they closed at 8:00.We inquired if we were too late. The restaurant was empty but they insisted that we could be served. We both ordered lobster bisque which was delicious with many small lobster pieces. I ordered a lobster roll which must have had a whole lobster in it, and... More

My husband's food looked ok average for breakfast. I got an omelette that looked as if it was made with a microwave omelette maker. I also ordered toast for 1.25 and got 1 slice of wonder bread cut in half. The waitress was really nice but the quality of food made it a poor experience.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way to Quebec City. What a great choice! The lunch menu was good and varied and all of the specials were tempting. My husband had southwestern chicken soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. I had an egg salad sandwich with bacon, lettuce and tomato. Both were specials. We shared fries.... More
