Terrible establishment. Was having great time and then the owner wife
/manager came at us with acquisitions that were not true. We spent a lot of money here over the years and we will never go back again. Never again!

Wow - I can't believe the positive reviews this place has received! Yes, I get that it's a bar, but it's no excuse for items that come out lacking components listed in the menu - or food that is cold - or food that's pretty much inedible. I would never return.

We enjoyed the lively & fum music along with a nice selection of tap beers. Service was fast for a Saturday night and the food was nice and hot. Had a overall good time at a reasonable rate.

The patty melt and chicken wrap were very good. The beer was good too. Bartenders provided fast, friendly service. Definitely a repeat visit.

We always hit the Black Bear when we're at the lake. They usually have live entertainment on Saturdays - early evening on the tavern side, then late night on the night club side. I've heard some really great bands over the years. Food's decent. I always go for the crabcake, but the sliders look good too. Bartenders are friendly and surprisingly fast, considering that it's always busy.
