Stopped by for lunch, 1st time visiting the Bears den. I have drove by for years and finally stopped. A great place for a meal and it's clean. Some reviews say high priced but not a concern to me. It's not cheap to run a business in the north woods! I will be back!

Went there with a group of Ladies (Red Hats) and they knew we were coming and there was only one waitress and the food was not that great - my fries were cremated and the waitress never offered to bring another order or take it off the bill. Haven't been there in a long time !

My daughter and I came here after hearing that there were animals. We ate at the redtauraunt, the prices weren't too bad. The burgers are delicious, and the fries are great too. Service was okay. We would def come back.

We've eaten here on many, many occasions. The food is good and now that they have a liquor license, you can go and have a wine or beer with your meal. The prices are a bit steep though. My wife ordered the two piece chicken dinner and it came with a wing and small thigh as the chicken pieces for... More

I stopped in there recently with friends just for the dessert and their selection was awesome and the food was great. The waitress went out of her way for us and was really friendly and very helpful.

Every year my family and I go up to Hale and every year we always make sure to get breakfast at The Bear's Den. I love this restaurant and so does my family. It's a great place and I would recommend it to anyone!!

My friend told me when I was in the area that I definitely needed to stop in. My friend and I went up to our new hunt camp and decided on The Bear's Den for dinner. What a great time! Great service and food. It was so good that we decided to go back the next day for breakfast. Another... More

We stayed in the Bear Den Motel right next door (cute, Mom & Pop Motel) very convenient. We ordered Den Style Mac & Cheese w/white cheese and chicken for $9.99. Excellent! The staff were all friendly. The restaurant & motel clean. We are already planning our next mini-vacation to include both!!

Visiting from Florida. We ordered the special, Beef Tips. The meal was OK. Not stellar. Not a lot of choices in this area. Prices were reasonable.
