This is a treasure to enjoy. Just outside of Woodstock is this wonderful restaurant. The menu is interesting, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is comfortable. One of my favorite restaurants in the Catskills.

I had not been to Bear Cafe for a year or so until last Saturday late night, for various reasons. When I went back after attending a gallery reception at D Day Boutique (it has unique made-in-Woodstock jewelry/purses/etc and LA-made sunglasses, etc) on Tinker Street, and seeing "20th Century Women" at Tinker Cinema we decided to have supper at the...

Loved the interior design and beautiful view overlooking a stone filled creek, and the food was excellent! Angus sirloin was great and side of brussel sprouts with hazelnuts and shallots was delicious!

Nice dinner on the outside deck. We were lucky to snag a table overlooking the creek. We very much enjoyed our dinner and the good wine selection.

Ambience, service, range, food, location... we loved it all. When we were shepherded out at the end of the evening we looked at our watches and couldn't believe we'd been inside of a couple of hours.

The Bear Cafe isn't bad. But had I known they're located 10 ft. from another outdoor, communal style outdoor dining area, I would have eaten there. The Bear was decent. The Beer was ice cold, the restaurant itself was very nice. we ordered the Mussels appetizer. The Mussels were nickel sized. Tasty little morsels. But Little being the key word.... More

We have visited Woodstock quite a few times and always make time to have dinner at the Bear Cafe. The food is wonderful and the location is beautiful. We usually try to sit outside along side the creek and enjoy our glass of wine and dinner selection.

Can't go wrong at the Bear Cafe. Sit at the bar and order the burger. It's our home away from home. Great beer selection, too.
