The Bear & Grill offers a casual American menu with regional specials, with most items including desserts and breads made fresh daily.Decor and ambiance is fun and casual.

“HORRIBLE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

The food is horrendous.

The interior needs to be gutted/sheet-rocked and revamped.

The owner needs to NOT be involved - He's your typical overbearing Italian who needs to stay out of everything.

The entire staff needs to be fired and a fresh start is needed.

This place is like the Titanic - get out before it sinks!

“Nice casual place, food not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I tried this place 4 times, had issues 3 times with food not cooked the way it was ordered. Service is not consistent. Too bad, the place has a nice lodge style look.

“I would advise spending your money else where, there are plenty of good restaurants on the Post Road.”

My girlfriend and I went there on a Wednesday for lunch.
I got the boneless chicken buffalo tenders for an appetiser and to be honest, I've had "Tyson Buffalo Chicken Tenders" from a bag are better. These were flat, dry, commercial strips. Cheapest a food service company will sell you.
I ordered the Mountain Country Burger, medium, (it came medium well), the tomatoe was old, mushy, the romaine was wilted and the red onion dry fron being in the fridge too long.
My girlfriend ordered the Grilled Shrimp BTA, the shrimp were over cooked and her tomatoe still had the produce sticker on it!! So much for washing their produce before serving it. I did mention it to our server and she apologized but the chef and/or the manager couldn't be bothered to come out and offer an apology or offer any compensation.(We weren't looking for a discount but at least an acknowledgement of the issue)
I wonder what else they dont wash.
I like the atmosphere but the food quality and cleanliness worries me now.

“Avoid at all costs”

Went for brunch. Food was terrible. Had a child at the carving station. Waiter was mostly MIA.
Tip was included in bill, which was not deserved at all. NEVER WILL STEP FOOT IN THIS PLACE AGAIN
