Good bar food. Eaten here numerous times. Very good burger for a bar. Also good drink specials. Very nice atmosphere next to the real wood burning fireplace!

The Black Bear has a great breakfast , portions are large, and always good. It's a little outside Madison but its worth the short drive. They also have a great Friday night fish fry.

The Black Bear is inconsistent with its service and its food. We have one waitress who has been terrific, but we are not pleased with others. The weeds in the front of the building are 4' high; a good half hour of attention would certainly improve the appearance.

I have eaten here several times because it is the yearly meeting place for our mid-size to large group to meet after the convention. I find the food to be ok but nothing to write home about. The waitresses are friendly and try their best. It consistently takes a while for us to receive the meals we ordered. Maybe it is due to our group's size? However, we do inform them of the group's size and how many teriyaki chicken or prime rib dinners we need well in advance. The salad bar is very basic. I do not find the quality of food to be worth the wait.

Food is average. Eat it fast before it gets cold. Outside the temps were in the teens. Inside I still needed a coat.
