This is perhaps the flagship Black Bear Saloon of the three or so Black Bear restaurants in Connecticut. It is fun to visit is you don't mind a louder, younger crowd for the most part. This depends on the time of day, however, and there are a few positives. Food here is composed of alot of jarred or prepared foods, by my estimation. Portions are generous, and flavorful, but nothing special. Pub food made to look alittle better than perhaps it really is. For a quick lunch or drink during the day, this is a nice stop, where the selections don't often change. Many items are either way to heavy on melted cheese, or globs of toppings and the like, which tends to make whatever it is underneath either soggy or unidentifiable. There are many TVs playing at all times, so if this is not what you are looking for, best to avoid. They have a nice happy hour for those working in the area that want a noisy place to take a break. Nonetheless, this is a fun place to visit if you want to have a few beers with friends. I have not experienced any of the live music events that they heavily advertise in the restaurant.
