I was in town for a day long meeting and needed a place to get out of the meeting room. This space is well lite and bright, the perfect spot for a cool November day. Food is home cooked style chicken in a few methods...of preparation. I suspect it varies from day to day. I had fried and it was properly done and had good flavor. Lots of sides for choices which were also good. Great tea capped a nice lunch. As I mentioned in my headline the staff were all friendly and helpful. Nice to see smiling faces when out of town. Recommend.More

Bear's Den has the best soul food in town. We, at the Children's Hospital have ordered from Bear's Den on several occasions. Mrs. Lona and her team are always professional, warming, helpful, and always ensure our group orders are always correct. Actually, we are in...the process of placing another group order for tomorrow.More

We were from out of town. Looked on trip advisor. Ordering is cafeteria style. Then you can go to dining room to eat. Place was clean. All the employees were pleasant and helpful. Best soul food yet. Portions are abundant. Sweet potato pie was great.

We as a family thought we would take a break from cooking and decided to get a catered meal. It was the worst food ever. The turkey was freezer burned and had a funny after taste. The dressing had the consistency of a thick pudding....The mac and cheese was clumps of Cheese over macaroni noodles, the cheap cheese never melted. The green beans were the star of the meal, after being doctored up of course. I'm just thankful that a few fast food places where open. To be honest I wouldn't feed that meal to my dog. Cooking in food in high volume is NOT their thing🤮🤢More

We went here twice during our last visit to Macon and plan to go again on our next trip! It's good old-fashioned comfort food with a southern signature. Being from the mountain-west we were hoping to find that, and we did! Everything we tried was...tasty and satisfying. Our only complaint would be that the fried chicken didn't travel well. It wasn't very crispy once we got back to our daughter's house. Next time we'll eat it there.More

We were visiting nearby at lunchtime and my wife read the reviews on TA. My wife ordered the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and squash casserole. I had ordered the meatloaf with mashed potatoes, collard greens, and butter beans. Everything was excellent! If you want...a home cooked meal with incredible service, we HIGHLY recommend eating here.More

Tried to call in a takeout nobody answered the phone , decided to stop by there and went into the takeout entrance , which was busy , sad to see when I entered that 2 women with 2 kids without COVID masks on talking very...loud and taking there time, while others were waiting to place orders, just wish the employees would have offered masks for them because they seemed not to care for the others around them, not the best area probably to order food thereMore
