“Good for a burger or sandwich”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We have eaten here several times and have found the food quality not always consistently good and service not always consistent either. Unfortunately, you are limited to your restaurant choices in this little town so if you order something here, make it simple, such as a sandwich or burger. Breakfast is usually good here, but it takes a while to get your order, especially if they are busy. It is one of those places that are good at the simple things, don't expect too much and you won't be dissappointed.

“Dependable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

When staying in Jackman one has few choices and all restaurants are not created equal. You have to try them all and weed 'em out. Mama Bears has always had good food and decent service. That's why I return every time. Good menu choices and reasonably priced. Comfortable seating for 2 to larger groups.

Visiting while staying in Jackman for dinner. Good service and decent meal. Enjoyed the historical photos throughout. Reasonable prices. Wanted to try breakfast but didn't make it back.

“++”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

A Great Place to stop for lunch on our way from Quebec City to Bar Harbor; menu for all, good location / service / taste etc. Several booths / tables with "locals" so it must be good. A very good place and we thank Contributors to Trip Advisor and Trip Advisor for submitting / having reviews of Mama Bears. A great place to stop becaue despite their being few options after leaving Quebec City for the drive the Bar Harbor, Maine. It's "local" and that is part of the joy of travel
