Based on reviews, we decided to try Black Bear while staying on a nearby lake for a few days vacation. The baked and fried haddock dinners were wonderful, as were the collard greens and mashed potatoes. Service was great and friendly. A great find!

Visit here about a week ago while on vacation, inside has a nice Irish pub feel. Food was decent, and served hot. Many beers on draft, including Guinness. Yes I would return.

Three of us came for the fish and chips; the batter fried fish was crispy and tender, with large steaks. The chips were really fries, but were all yummy. One of us had the Surf and Turf; 4 scallops baked in butter, and a 6 oz steak. The steak was well seasoned and tender, and not over cooked. The scallops... More

We travel to Naples each year and always go to the Black Bear. The food is great and consistent. I would recommend the fish and chips.

We've been coming to The Black Bear Cafe for years. Open year round, its a great place to come after summertime activities at the beach, or after a day of winter skiing or snowmobiling. Don't let the name fool you, it's not as much of a cafe as it is a great Irish restaurant/Pub. located in Naples Maine on route... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food in this very casual place, with loud but excellent live music playing. This was not a typical Maine menu, a bit more sophisticated and definitely well executed.

Great pub atmosphere, live fiddle player just sitting around playing Irish style music. Food and beer selection just what you'd expect from a small pub. Food was really good if just a tad expensive. Music did seem a little loud after a while.

Thank you so much for you great review. Delighted that you enjoyed your visit. The BBC is a cozy spot, and if the music is too loud in the main dining room, the SNUG might be a better option for seating, where one is a bit more insulated, but not removed. thank you again. More

Got wait listed to get in here on Saturday night so be sure to call ahead as quite a few people got turned away. Food was very good, server was working hard. Live music was very entertaining! Definitely will go back.

Surprised this location wasn't on The Causeway where much of the summer action is...On 302 outside of town. Clean surroundings, striving for that Irish Pub atmosphere. A few too many Guinness mirrors, sorry. Also before the acoustic guitar player came on (nice touch on a Sunday evening) the Irish music must really frustrate the FOH staff.Please update the playlist. OK,... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. The decor is always changing, and the mirrors help reflect available light, particularly during the off season, when it's very dark inside and out. Delighted you enjoyed most of the food offerings, indeed we do chop our Romaine, which is a departure from the 'old school', but it is freshly... More
