Stopped to check their menu and have an adult beverage. They seem to have a decent choice of sandwiches And other foods. Choice of 6 dinner items. We didn't eat so can't say anything about that. Bartender was very friendly and poured a good drink. Will come back to try the food next time we're up north.

The Bears Den was going through some remodeling and the restaurant wasn't open yet, but they did open the bar and the staff was so, so amazing! The night before we all left they allowed us to bring in the left-overs from the wedding we were there for and have our after wedding get together. They (Shane and Angie) were... More

I visited the Bear's Den one night after arriving at the Black Bear Lodge. I was tired from a day of hiking & traveling up from Minocqua, but also wanted to enjoy a drink, without the worry of driving home. I'm not one to base my choices solely on reviews online, and despite a few negative reviews, decided to check... More

We discovered the Bear's Den by attending open mike on a Sunday evening night a few year's back and have returned every year since. Craig and his wife are very hospitable and serve a good meal. The Bear's Den also has very friendly bartenders. The fish fry is great and my sons enjoy the Kewanau Widowmaker and of course the... More

The food was good, we had burgers and fries. We only ate there once as there are lots of other places to eat in the area and... More

We stopped for lunch while snowmobiling. Normal bar fare. Fried anything, burgers, etc. Food was good, but I expect it had been frozen. Bar tender/server was friendly and attentive. Pool tables, clean rest rooms, and seating away from the bar. Not exceptional, but very acceptable.

We were staying at the Black Bear Lodge and decided to try the restaurant for dinner. Both my wife and I had the deep fried haddock. It comes with 4 large pieces of fish, fries, rye bread and coleslaw. Very tasty! If can finish the first plateful it's AYCE. Waitress was very nice. A small cozy restaurant with attached bar...

We stopped in Sunday afternoon and had really good burgers. The eating area wasn't very crowded, but the bar was. The big complaint was they had a 4 piece band playing on a Sunday afternoon, which took up a large area of the bar and prevented most people from having a conversation. Really, a band on a Sunday afternoon??? how... More

Was quiet for our Saturday visit. Not many patrons for dinner, though the bar was pretty full. Beautiful view of lake from dining room, but the glass needed a good cleaning. Menu wasn't large and some items we're crossed off, even though it was early (5pm). Burgers were ok, as was the pizza. Cheese curds good with ranch dressing. Though... More
