Looking for good food on the lake [or close to], head for the Bear.
Enjoyed a fried hot dog platter [don't knock it till you try it] and my wife enjoyed fish and chips. Both meals were good. Also, try the ice tea...couldn't get enough. The wait staff is excellent and the prices are too. It can get a little noisy, but that's the sound of happy people enjoying themselves.

We loved the Black Bear Tavern! It was a great place to get lunch on a Saturday afternoon! They have televisions all over the place so no one had to miss their favorite college football game. They had great options on their menu. The salmon salad was fantastic! It was a huge portion for a great price. The turkey melt was also wonderful.

We ate a late lunch at the Black Bear restaurant and received efficient , friendly service. The food was good value and we got the impression that this would be a very lively place in the evening. We will definitely go to this restaurant again on our next visit.

This was more like a bar that served food, so if noise is an issue, you may want to go elsewhere. The burger was good.

The place was very loud. I'm not talking about the music. The food was so so. The band was on the low end of the scale. The place had a lot of Collage Students and is not the place a middle age couple would find fun. It's a meat locker.
