What a delightful surprise to find such an up-scale establishment as this. Enjoyed the coffee very much and the view of the Little Sioux River . The staff prepared meals for our group of 20+ and everyone was satisfied.

The free iced tea of they day is the best I've ever had. Some of the sandwiches are better than others but the chicken salad is the best.

There is nothing to dislike. Great atmosphere, great food, and the best coffee around! Wonderful place to sit and visit with friends.

I am so pleased that the Bear has moved into our area! While Spencer is dominated by pizza and burgers, the Bear is a refreshing change with well-styled sandwiches and delicious side options like veggies with hummus.

They have great wine and the most amazing homemade desserts. The atmosphere is "uptown bistro" and the staff are very friendly.

If you enjoy fresh food and are in need of a casual, fine meal I highly recommend The Bear.

Husband and I went to The Bear for a Saturday night out. The Bear hosts live music every Saturday night with no cover charge. It's a very relaxed atmosphere! The drinks were great. We were too stuffed from supper before to try anything on the menu, but the table next to us got some yummy looking chips and salsa and cake. We enjoyed wine and speciality beers! Luke Fox was terrific! I hope they bring him back!
