We we passing through the area and decided to visit. Food was fantastic, service was superb and the atmosphere was great! The food was really fresh and tasted fantastic. We had burgers and these were so tasty, portion sizes are big (too big for me but my husband seemed to manage lol). Would recommend this place.

I had the New York strip with angry corn and Brussel sprouts. The steak was very good, well cooked and seasoned. Very good "angry corn" (daily special, a slightly spicy corn), and good Brussel sprouts. Excellent service as well; the staff was knowledgeable and had good recommendations.

We have eaten twice at this restaurant, both times on possibly one of the busiest nights of the year. Yes, it was busy, but the second time we had made a reservation and there was no delay in seating us. The attention to detail in the food is incredible. All the salad dressings are made in-house and you can tell... More

Had a nice meal here when my family visited from Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Was also my first time at Bears Den. I must say I was truly impressed and certainly advise all to try this place. Several of us had filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. Side dishes were well sized. The wait staff was very prompt and... More

Our family of 10 had dinner at this location on a Friday at 5p. Restaurant was actually very crowded at 5p and we were glad we had a reservation. We were seated right away and service was very good overall. We had salads, soup and chili, along with a variety of steaks and burgers. All were happy with their food... More

We were on a road trip and really wanted to find a casual fun place for steak that wasn't a chain. This place was just the ticket. The beef comes straight from the owner's farm. Service was great. It was busy on a Saturday night, so we were grateful that they took a reservation for us when we called in... More

Though I'm glad you were able to check our place out, I'm disappointed to hear service fell short -- you should always feel well taken care of when you join us for a meal, and I'm sorry to hear that wasn't the case. I do want to clarify that everything on our menu is made fresh in-house and even locally... More

Wonderful place to eat. Service is always great. Food terrific. But, be warned they are small and they fill up fast. If you go during peak times prepare to wait. But, it will be worth it. Steaks are very good!!

Mmmm, delicious food! The burgers here were delicious, made from Ohio beef. I totally recommend the mushroom swiss burger. It was extremely large so I only ate part of it. I recommend cutting it in half if you are unsure of how much you will eat. The salads were very good. We had the special of the quesadilla appetizer which... More

This is so awesome! Our mushroom swiss burger is a favorite of mine too, so it makes my day that you enjoyed it. Next time you get the chance to eat with us, you have to try one of our pies. I can tell ya, they taste even better than they look. Thanks for the great review. Best, Chef Steve More
