“Consistently Good Food”
Review of Hungry Bear Restaurant - CLOSED

Hungry Bear Restaurant

Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stay in this area from spring till summer and frankly it is not easy to find good food. Since the area is seasonal a lot of places open in the spring and fail in the winter time. Hungry Bear has been open for a few years and we usually eat there once a week. It is a bit pricey for lunch but you get good food and plenty of it. Their Philly cheese steaks are to die for, made from prime rib. The chef salad is humongous and the Rueben, wraps and soups are all excellent. The chef collects memorabilia from military and other eras and most of it is for sale. He supports the motorcycle riders who go through Deal's Gap and ride the Tale of the Dragon. If you have trouble, you just call him. He also does breakfast and dinner but we usually just do lunch while in town for other shopping.

I had my very first Philly cheese steak sandwich at Hungry Bear restaurant today ! The sandwich was HUGE, and absolutely delicious. Great value for the price. The steak was so tender. I will be back for more.

A little dark, quiet, very nice staff, believe it is locally owned.
One of the very few places in town that have vegetarian items on their menu

We had no clue what to expect going in. Service was decent and the restaurant was very clean. Restaurant was slooow when we were there. Just us and one other table. My husband ordered a wrap and I ordered fried chicken. Both surprisingly good and large enough that we shared with our four yr old. A bit more expensive than we expected, but no complaints.

Great place for breakfast. Order at counter, fresh cooked, with numerous coffee refills. Lots of interesting antiques around but NOT cluttered and dusty like most antique/restaurant combo places. A little hard to find. There is a auction/antiques store next door but we did not visit.
