“Fun Sports Pub and Good Food”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We visited the Bears Den with a large group of friends and kids over the weekend, and had a very enjoyable time. It wasn’t very crowded and the wait staff was very accommodating in getting us seated and organized. The bottomless popcorn was a big hit! All together we had three large tables. I was worried that ordering food and the wait time would be an issue. But glad to say it wasn’t. They did a tremendous job of taking the orders, and preparing the food. Everything came out correctly and in a decent amount of time. Our server was great. Some of the staff at other tables didn’t look too excited, but we had a great experience.
The menu is a lot of pub grub, but with some nice surprises. The salads were great and so were the fish tacos. I had the spinach, bacon, bleu cheese salad, and it was excellent. The burgers were large and prepared fresh, and the nachos were huge.
The pricing was high, but not outrageous, and the portions were on the larger side. The kids liked the small arcade and there are plenty of TV’s around to entertain.
This is a nice place to visit for an informal bite to eat; before or after a game, or just to hang out for a few drinks.

“Nice enough for our late night snack.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Had an overall enjoyable time at the Den. I stopped by with a friend after a Hershey Bears hockey game to get a beverage and some appetizers. Service was friendly and the crab toast app was okay. I wolud go back again.

“Hockey-themed pub with big TVs and bottomless popcorn pleases all ages.”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Nice draft beer selection including local brews. Good coleslaw. Salty, greasy bar food done well in a hockey motif. Open late.

This is a very casual family atmosphere with decent food. I enjoyed my chicken salad with spinach and blue cheese. I recommend it.

“Good pub food”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I stopped in after a long snowy drive from NJ. The place was nearly empty which was a bit of concern initially but the prompt service and tasty meal made us both very happy. We had a great burger, chicken cheesesteak, and a few cocktails.
