Went in for a quick dinner on a rainy night. Friendly staff made us feel very welcome. Sat upstairs. I ordered the broasted chicken, which was probably the best I've had. My son had a hamburger that was insanely big but he said was awesome. Would go back next time I'm up in the area.

Located in the darling vacation village of Pentwater, this family place is known throughout West Michigan for its delicious burgers. The restaurant was packed on the day we went since the weather was not the best, and yet the service was still great. Reasonalbly priced and serving cocktails, their menu has something for everyone

We stopped by for a cool lunch since it was in the 90's outside and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the bar was. Not only was it clean, but the service was good, and the food quality was above average for a bar. My vegan sister challenged the chef for a non-dairy, non-meat sandwich, and she was quite happy with the California sandwich they came up with.

We always make a trip to Pentwater to eat at the Brown Bear. They have awesome burgers - BIG- atmosphere is good - lots of seating - well worth the trip - try to go a little early or later because the place fills up fast around lunch - dinner time.

We were staying at Silver lake and were looking for a good resturant, found the perfect burger spot! Their fresh angus burgers were some of the best burgers we've ever had! It's def worth the trip for lunch or dinner. We went at noon on a Friday and the place was PACKED! Probably because it's got some of the best food in the area. Well worth the trip from Silver Lake.
