Nice dinner on the outside deck. We were lucky to snag a table overlooking the creek. We very much enjoyed our dinner and the good wine selection.

Ambience, service, range, food, location... we loved it all. When we were shepherded out at the end of the evening we looked at our watches and couldn't believe we'd been inside of a couple of hours.

The Bear Cafe isn't bad. But had I known they're located 10 ft. from another outdoor, communal style outdoor dining area, I would have eaten there. The Bear was decent. The Beer was ice cold, the restaurant itself was very nice. we ordered the Mussels appetizer. The Mussels were nickel sized. Tasty little morsels. But Little being the key word.... More

We have visited Woodstock quite a few times and always make time to have dinner at the Bear Cafe. The food is wonderful and the location is beautiful. We usually try to sit outside along side the creek and enjoy our glass of wine and dinner selection.

Can't go wrong at the Bear Cafe. Sit at the bar and order the burger. It's our home away from home. Great beer selection, too.

My husband and I spent a week in Woodstock vacationing, and in that time went TWICE to this lovely restaurant. What can I say? Food was delicious, service great, atmosphere fantastic. Their specialty, Sugar Bear, drink was the BEST!!!!

We ate outside by the creek and it was a gorgeous setting. The location was definitely what made the dining experience so special. The food was very good. I had pesto pasta dish and my husband had the filet mignon which he loved. It is pricey but we would return for a special occasion.

We planned to meet family coming north from NYC while we were coming south from Albany on a holiday weekend. We got there early and our family got there 25 minutes late. The staff was able to accommodate us and the service was great. The homemade pasta items were great as was the mussels and the salmon. I am glad... More
