Close to the B&B and the food is delicious, bar that was packed. Not cheap but it's worth it. Nice streamside dining.

Loved the interior design and beautiful view overlooking a stone filled creek, and the food was excellent! Angus sirloin was great and side of brussel sprouts with hazelnuts and shallots was delicious!

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!!!!
