Thought we would get a good home cooked meal. That was not the case. The food was overcooked, under spiced, cold, and to top it off over priced. The only redeeming quality was that the server was pleasant and attentive. We will not be going back.

The food is all delicious comfort food. The owners and staff are super friendly. The records on the wall give you something to explore. We never miss dining at Bear's when we are in Kimberley.

This tiny restaurant is not easy to find but definitely worth the effort. The locals eat here....usually a good sign. "Bear" makes the most awesome pot pies, chicken, steak and mushroom as well as shepherds pie. All are exceptional! Leave room for some delicious desserts too.

We found this gem on Tripadvisor, of all places. Easy to find in the heart of town across from Overwaitea Foods, this little place is run by a loving couple who have retired and made this their life's work. Every item on the menu is prepared with love and the freshest ingredients. I had a flame broiled burger with the... More

Had a great meal in this little spot in Kimberley - good comfort food and the price was right. When we dropped in that night, there seemed to be a lot of locals in there - that's a good sign. Bear's homemade chicken pot pie was delicious and ample and their fish and chips was a large serving and also... More

Stopped here on our family vacation for supper. Service was excellent and the food was amazing. Keep the main dishes small so that you save room for the home made pies ad they are worth it! If in Kimberly again we would absolutely love to stop in again!

The food was excellent. The service was even better. We had the Corn Chowder and the Pizza which was excellent. Other members of the party had the Seafood pot pie and the Chicken pot pie. They raved about it. The pies are home made and you will not be disappointed.

We stopped in for pie -- had the apple and blueberry -- and it was fabulous!! I wish we planned to be there for lunch,... More

If you're in the Kimberley area, I highly recommend stopping by for a meal! The French fries are home made and cooked to perfection! JJ was extremely friendly and welcoming as well!
