My mother-in-law and father-in-law eat here every day of the week for breakfast and lunch. It is a simple diner with reasonable food and choices. But they do not take credit cards.

The Hungry Bear is a great local spot to get some breakfast. The food is cheap but delicious. They are usually pretty busy because it's so good!

No one town comes close to their breakfast platters. Food is reasonably priced and you can get a 5 plate entree for less than a value meal. I have eaten here more than 50 times and love the at home feel. Staff is courteous and great environment.

This is a greasy-spoon, mom-and-pop type restauant. The breakfast is good and the pancacks are huge. Biscuits and gravy were very good.

Great place for a good cheap breakfast but that's about it. Average food otherwise with limited seating. Bathrooms are old and not the cleanest but kitchen appears to be clean. I usually stop in about once a year and get breakfast. Local owned for over 30 years.

Pancakes are their specialty but all entrees are good, especially breakfasts. They are a very long time Murray establishment.

We eat there each morning except Wednesdays, when they are closed. Not great atmosphere, but good food and great service. Very clean compared to some other restaurants in Murray.
