Great service, great chili (other than mine), and the burgers and onion rings are good also. Nobody in the group I was with had any complaints. Very snowmobiler friendly.

Stopped on the snow sleds. The meatloaf is mouth watering and so are the broccoli bites. Awesome fast service even on a busy evening.

They have a lot of animal mounts inside so it makes it fun to look around. The service was very good. I had the nacho's and was slightly disappointed, they had on cheese sauce on them instead of melted cheese. The warm weather had the amount of snowmobilers down.

The Bear Trap is a snowmobiling staple stop. WIFI hot spot. Little-No cell phone service. ALWAYS ORDER THE CHICKEN DUMPLING SOUP! Even if you're full, order it! Burgers, Grilled Cheese, and Fries are all great choices. Service is sometimes slow, due to crazy busy times, but the ladies always do the best they can! Restrooms were recently updated and nice...

We had a burger, pork chops, fried chicken, clam strip basket, philly cheese steak and basket of fried portabella mushrooms. Everyone enjoyed everything we ordered. The clam strips were perfectly fried. The French fries were very good!! The waffle fries were... More

Stopped in after spending a day hiking and looking at waterfalls in picture rock park. My wife saw a sign for the restaurant and after driving by earlier decided to give it a try on our way back to Munising. The service was outstanding, the food was great and the portions were large.
