If you are looking for a premium steakhouse type atmosphere circa 1980s, this may be the place for you. The decor is very old world wood with nature scenes throughout. My husband and I visited for a romantic dinner, and were disappointed to be seated in the lounge area, complete with TVs blaring the hockey game: I don't pay $40... More

Recently went to Bears Den for our wedding anniversary. Having dined here several times in the past we had high expectations of a first rate meal and dining experience. Great ambiance, the staff is friendly and attentive, the wine list decent, but we were somewhat disappointed by the menu. My wife selected the Duck Confit and I had the Ribeye... More

Chose the Bears Den for an anniversary celebration with friends last night--what a wonderful experience. Such attentive service from the time we entered until we left 3 hours later! Food was excellent, music delightful and of course the wine list was extensive.

It was date night for my mom, daughter & I. We each ordered & shared so we could try a few things. We loved everything including the Italian red wine. My daughter is a vegetarian & there wasn't a lot of options so she had the soup & a salad which she enjoyed. The best part of our dining experience... More

Nice ambience, delicious food and wines. We were greeted as soon as we walked through the front door. All staff were very friendly. Bartender, Al, is the best! We sat at the bar, ordered appetizers only. The duck wings were cooked to perfection, and the portion was big. My friend had the wild mushroom tart, and said it was delicious.... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Bears Den the other night to celebrate her birthday. We were seated at a table by the fireplace which added to the ambiance. The restaurant is decorated in a Western Canadian style leveraging their name. We started with a couple of mushroom based appetizers, a mushroom tart and a mushroom bisque. Both... More

We have been coming to the Bears Dean over the years for our company’s Christmas dinner. Our employees work very hard through the year and we want them and their partners to be treated like royalty for this special occasion. The Bears Dean has never let us down and last evening was not the exception. It was just simply amazing.... More

My husband and I went as part of a group and had reserved the private room. Throughout the entire evening the service was first rate and a special thanks to J.P. As some other reviewers have pointed out, under new management, the core menu has "shortened" somewhat but when combined with the off menu "specials", no one in our party... More

Limited selection, food over-cooked, Totally a different experience than with the previous owner. Maybe the next owner will do better
