I've been to the Bear's Den a few times, and every time, I wind up getting a breakfast. It's a decent meal at a decent price and it's well made. Nice little oasis on M-65 between Hale and Glennie.

My daughter and I came here after hearing that there were animals. We ate at the redtauraunt, the prices weren't too bad. The burgers are delicious, and the fries are great too. Service was okay. We would def come back.

We've eaten here on many, many occasions. The food is good and now that they have a liquor license, you can go and have a wine or beer with your meal. The prices are a bit steep though. My wife ordered the two piece chicken...More
