“Bear Bottom Inn”

The Bear Bottom Inn
Ranked #1 of 5 Restaurants in Mackay
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 22, 2014

The Bear Bottom Inn has been a great place to go to drink a variety of beers on tap. Now that Margie is serving food, it is also the best place in Mackay and surrounding area to eat. The atmosphere is very friendly and the staff (Barb, Margie, Todd & Tekkla ) make you feel at home. We residents of the Mackay area are very fortunate to have a place of this caliber to frequent.

We are locals and Bear Bottom Inn is one of our top choices for beer and now food! You cannot find a better meal. They serve a limited dinner Tuesday-Saturday where everything is homemade! They have 12 taps with some of Idaho's most popular micro brews. They also have a great wine list. You will not find better service anywhere! They recently have remodeled the tap room and restaurant to give customers a cozy Mackay feeling. Local pictures are displayed and each one has it's own story. Don't miss out on this local treasure!

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were recommended by a friend to stop here on our way to Sturgis and will definitely be back! Comfy bed with fridge/microwave/coffee maker. Well worth the trip!!

We stayed at the Bear Bottom Inn on July 19, 2012, before a climb of Mt. Borah. The restaurant was closed, but the motel and bar were excellent. Motel is clean, quiet, air conditioned, with beautiful handmade furniture and beds. Two people, two beds, $69; clearly the best option in Mackay, but would be a good place to stay in any town.

The bar was excellent! Five or six ice-cold microbrews on tap at $3.00 a pint!
