Stopped for lunch when in the San Juan's. My wife had Soup and Hot Tea and I had a Reuben, Fries and Iced Tea. Food was OK and so was the service. Interesting old building and atmosphere. No problem going back.

We were looking for a local diner and decided to try the Brown Bear for lunch. My reuben was excellent. One of the sides was a tasty home made chicken soup. My wife said her burger was good, as well. We would return.
