We weekend in Woodstock and this is one of our go-to places for good food. Its a comfortable restaurant, nothing fancy - but great views of the stream. It's pretty good Chinese food - it can be hard to find good Chinese in NY (even the city, outside of Chinatown, of course.) The menu is extensive - eggrolls always good, Hunan and General Tso's as well. The waitstaff is always courteous and friendly - and very fast - there can be a small language barrier. The pick-up food service is usually spot on as well (I think we've had one messed up order out of several.) We also really like the 'quaint' upstate bar - friendly bartender and usually an interesting local/regulars crowd.

We were surprised by the recent poorer reviews - we vastly prefer Little Bear to the much more expensive and overrated Bear Cafe next door - for both food and service.

I ate lunch here one day. The menu was as expected as was the food. The view is nice but the food was fine just not remarkable.

The food is at best mediocre, and anything but authentic, and only its affiliation with the wonderful Bear Cafe next door keeps it popular. Also very overpriced for what you get. The location is delightful, but cannot overcome all the negatives.

The Little Bear is not a roadside Chinese take out joint, but neither is it a fancy restaurant they are trying to be. The service is not great and the food is ok. Good thing is that there is no wait to get a table. Average.
