Good food and good prices. Just need to separate the bar noise from the restaurant. Drinkers have a tendency to be a lot louder.

While staying at the Inn, we dined here for breakfast. The food was excellent, and the service was good. The 3 of us each had something different. The omelet was great, the eggs were cooked to order, and the pancakes and syrup were fantastic. The fruit was fresh.

we've been thinking 40-plus years about visiting the three bear, finally got chance after a ballgame... lovely setting, nice personnel, hard to describe the décor, except a hardwood, nautical style... actually, three different dining rooms -- pub, formal dining room, in between, gee, this is getting to sound like the nursery rhyme... had lite-level salmon burger, also haddock, baked sweet...

This is a hotel/restaurant in a little town on the side of the interstate. We stop a couple of times a year here on the way to Rochester to see family and are never disappointed. The bar is always a human character study and the food is better than you would expect.

We stopped by here for lunch and were impressed by the hearty welcome, the excellent roast beef on rye and the chef's salad - all with a gentle price tag. Indeed, we were so impressed by lunch that we also had breakfast here the next morning instead of at our hotel. The breakfast menu is large and even offered an... More

Been here 3 times on drives to Rochester and have been impressed with everything. Dinners have included fried chicken, burger and patty melt. Good, friendly service. This is a great bit of nostalgia.

A group of us snowmobiles to the Three Bear Inn for lunch. The service was average. The food was terrible. The three of us had soup and salads; the soup was luke warm and the salad was nothing special. The bill was close to $50 we were shocked. Definitely will not be stopping again.

Thank Jatracy3
