We've been going to the Bear Creek Grille since it opened a few years ago. It has a simply wonderful bar/restaurant area....fireplaces, great views, plenty of room, and nice well-done decor. That's the good side. On the other hand, the food there is simply not that good, and you have to pay quite a hefty price for it. They have a very small menu...especially limited on sandwich fare, which is a drag for a place selling itself as a destination for the pub-type crowd. Mixed drinks are good, and they have a nice selection of beer.
Overall, this place needs a do-over in terms of fare. They need a more expansive menu and try not to hose you so much on prices. If the food was better and/or cheaper, this would be our favorite place to go. The weird thing is that we have had their catered food on multiple occasions and it has been outstanding!
For now (and this is true for us and our friends) we go for the great location, ambience and drinks...and we tolerate the food. We're really really hoping they see some of these not-so good reviews and make some changes.
