Stopped here for the first time just a couple of days ago. Great food! Great drinks! Excellent customer service! Looking forward to our next visit. Outside seating only. All orders are of the to-go nature.

We have a new tradition of stopping at Little Bear Drive-In any time we pass through. They have excellent milkshakes in MANY different flavors. I highly recommend huckleberry, but their Oregon Berry (mix of 3 or 4 Oregon-sourced berry varieties) is also very good. My...More

It is outdoor dining or drive thru but the burgers are very good and they have a fantastic variety of milk shakes. It is a seasonal restaurant with outdoor seating only but well worth the stop.

Famous for their ice cream, nice variety of milkshakes, malts, sodas and meals. Sweet people own the place and offer summer employment to the local high school kids. It's an almost holiday when they open after the Winter!

This drive-in is very handy in summer. Good burgers (I choose buffalo meat) great shakes and various other not-so-healthy things of sugar and grease. If a local kid asks you for a Clown cone, expect a fancy, expensive thing, and it is cheaper to order...More

Made a quick U-turn when driving through and stopped for some ice cream. The berry shake was outstanding and the cones were huge. Well worth the stop.
