We were driving home from Columbus and I found this on trip advisor. We were driving from the interstate to the restaurant and my fiancée thought I was taking him in the middle of the woods to leave him....lol....he thought did cross my mind 😊. We got there and my girls loved all the animals on the wall, it was... More

Excellent restaurant good service, good food. Desserts are good. Waitstaff is very attentive. The decor is a bit too woodsie for my taste, but many seem to enjoy it.

You really can't beat the steak here but go before 6 as they get busy. The barkeep is a good fellow so you can belly up to that but it's full all the time.

We took an 8-mile total detour from I-77. Beer was cold. They had an amazing Rueben burger. The biggest thing I would change would be to have salad greens instead of iceberg lettuce. I think the salad is listed as having greens, but greens meant iceberg only. Also, the iced tea could have been stronger in flavor.

Pros-even though it's known for its steaks, vegetarians can go there and be pleasantly satisfied and leave full and happy! Best stuffed ravioli in 100 miles! (No meat) Desserts are great too! Friends love their steaks! Con-servers usually seemed overwhelmed with tables and service is slower compared to other restaurants in area plus long waits whenever we want to go... More

We stayed overnight in a nearby Bed & Breakfast and found the Bears Den through TripAdvisor. We were glad that we did. The setting looks like a rustic lodge, but the parking lot was filled, which told us that it was a local favorite. We each had a bowl of their very good French Onion Soup, and we shared a... More

So glad you found us while you were in town! I'm bummed you don't live closer because I'd love for you guys to be regulars. You're right -- we are a local favorite, but we love welcoming visitors like yourself also. I'll be sure to pass along your kind words to Shannon, as I know how much she'll appreciate everything....

Thank you Trip Advisor for leading us to the Bears Den! Traveling through the area, this joint is a bit out of the way and doesn't look like much from the road, but don't be deceived - the food was amazing! We got burgers, which were excellent, but the huge chunk of home made cheesecake was the highlight of the... More
