“Always a Great Meal.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our little local book club meets here about once a month. We go other places but our favorite is always Honey Bear. Wait staff is busy but always accomodating, even during the tourist season when it can get a little crowded. The food at Honey Bear is the a cut above the typical bar food in that they have the best soup and salads around! The Oriental chicken salad is similiar but much more extensive then one by the same name at Applebee's. The hamburgers are 1/2 pound and handmade. The dinner menu is not large but they have the best ribs around by far. The dining room is small but a nice view to the patio and lake. We have never had a bad experience or meal at the Honey Bear!!

“Their Bloody Mary is almost a meal in itself!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We live in Three Lakes, Wisconsin which is 15 miles from Eagle River. There are many wonderful restaurants in the Northwood’s and the Honey Bear is one of our favorites The lunch and dinner menu offer something for everyone. The salads and sandwiches are excellent and the everyday Fish Fry is our personal favorite. Their Bloody Mary is almost a meal in itself! The service is fast and friendly with reasonable prices, keep us visiting the Honey Bear often!

The restaurant is located on Hwy 70 just west of downtown Eagle River and is located on the right side just after the Chevrolet dealership. Just after the road curves to the right you will find the Honey Bear. You will drive past it if you are not looking to the right.

“Above average food and a fun back yard”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The Honey Bear offers a tasty version of the typical Northwoods fare. The fish fry is crispy and tasty and the hamburgers good as well. The atmosphere is fun - your kids can play in the extensive back yard on nice days. Our Old Fashioneds could have been slightly stronger but tasted fine. In the past it has been crowded on Friday nights but we went on a Tuesday and got a table easily.
