The food was relish. You definitely got your money's worth. The staff were friendly ad the atmosphere was fun and inviting. My family and loved seeing all the dog photos on the wall and encouraged by staff to bring a photo of your own pooch to be hung up on their walls. But then we we are all dog/animals lovers... More

The place is nice. Buckets of peanuts on the table - shells on the floor. The prime rib sliders were very good. The service . was average. There are pictures of dogs all over cute. Not firearm friendly.

Todd C, Manager at Uncle Bears, responded to this review

Glad your sliders were spot on! I've gotta admit that "average" certainly isn't what we're aiming for in terms of service, though. I appreciate the feedback, and I'll be sure to loop back with my team on that one. All that said, thanks for checking us out, and I hope you'll give us the chance to deliver a truly exceptional...

Service was average; server talked too fast and didn't really make eye contact. The food was average, other than the coleslaw, which was fresh and just sweet enough. I had the fish and it tasted okay but was a bit greasy. My wife had the sliders and they were pretty good. Overall not a place we are thinking of going... More

To be fair, Jeremy, I wish we could have left a better impression. If there was anything your server said that was confusing or if you needed more info about our menu, I'm sure they would have stopped and explained if you asked. We do encourage our staff to move with a sense of urgency, yet in total control and... More

We had lunch there recently and enjoyed the food. It's your typical bar seen, casual dinning. I had a burger, it was really good. Good portion and the meat tasted fresh not like a processed burger. You have the option to eat outside on the patio or indoors. Bring a framed photo of your dog and they'll post in on... More

We saw this place and loved the fact that you can eat out on the patio with your dog. The decor is great with various people's dog photos and you can bring your pet photo in to be hung the walls.

We might be a bit crazy about the dog theme, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Besides, that's how Uncle Bear would have wanted it! It's great that you really enjoyed the burger on your visit. Next time you're back, feel free to bring your pup's pic with you! All the best, Todd C. More

Description
Uncle Bear’s Grill and Bar is an upbeat, fun establishment that has been a neighborhood favorite for the last 12 years. All 4 Valley (Phoenix, Arizona) locations feature the same unique decor (all the places you would find Bear - the owner’s former Dog lying around) such as hints of the home, backyard, garage and neighborhood. The menu is quite extensive with gourmet burgers, unique pastas, thin crust pizzas, fabulous fajitas and some good ol’ BBQ. We offer a full bar with fantastic margaritas and some of the tastier local microbrews. We display over 20 plus flat-panel TV’s for all your sports viewing pleasures and free peanuts where you can toss the shell right on the floor.
