The hockey-themed restaurant is a no frills fry-it-all pub with a large menu and full bar. TVs all over and kid-safe environment make this a perfect family meal spot. They even have arcade games.

We stumbled into this place for lunch. It is huge. The prices are high but expected given it is part of a resort. The food was good an the servings were huge so you did get a lot for the money.

A great place to just sit back and watch a sporting event on tv while enjoying food and drinks. I highly recommend the chocolate martinis

Food was average. No gluten free choices except for salads. If you're a hockey fan, there's lots of hockey memorabilia. Lots of big tv's to watch sports on.

I had read the reviews and wanted to go someplace "different" than we could go to back home in NY. We passed a Friendly's on the way in and I wish we went there instead. We are a sports family. We like sports bar food. But this place let us down. It was a lot smaller than I thought it... More

There are several good things about The Bear's Den. We liked the fact that it was open late. We got back from the Hershey Park late and was looking for dinner, so we stopped by here. They have a great kids menu, especially for picky eaters. The regular menu is very good too. It's your typical bar & grill type... More

We arrived at 5pm and there were 6 open table and told 20 minute wait: told "we have people on call for the tables"; no one shown up and we... More
