Nice atmosphere and friendly service. The food and especially the 8oz filet was cooked very well. Certainly a place to recommend if in the area

“Best Restaurant in the Area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

The Bear's Den is a great place to dine! The food is fresh, well presented and delicious. Prices are good in comparison to the high quality of the food. The service staff are wonderful!! They always have a smile on their faces and actually enjoy serving their patrons! (This attribute is very rarely found!) I feel that the owners and staff of this fine dining establishment are committed AND focused on what they do every day - and that is why they do it so well!

“Excellent Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We had lunch here after a day of shopping in Cambridge. The service was excellent and the food was good as well. We both got burgers that were cooked just right. The homemade chips were excellent and reheated well @ home. However, if you or someone in your party is disturbed by stuffed and/or mounted animals this is not the place for you.

“Finally, a real steak!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Have been in the area almost a month and tried a couple of places who offered steak, but this was the best by far. Cooked properly and brought out quickly. The service was friendly and quick even though they were pretty busy (Friday night). The price is up there, but not out of line for a quality steak, $24 for their regular Ribeye. Try the sautéed baby spinach for a side...EXCELLENT!
Rustic atmosphere with a lot of taxidermy on the walls, and they have an outdoor patio/porch for dining. I would recommend reservations if your going to be later getting there, it fills up quick from what I saw.

Will definitely be going back!

“Not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

They were very busy but that's no excuse for not seeing a waiter for 10 minutes. Wait for drinks and food was also way too long. I ordered asparagus but got brussels and food was average at best. I plan to go back and give it a second chance and will post another review.
