Chef Bear & JJ are a dynamic husband & wife team, that moved from high paced corporate Calgary to Kimberley, BC in 2010. Bear's Eatery was born with a cozy atmosphere of music paraphernalia on the walls, great food and great service. Most of our menu is made from scratch. Chef Bear works very hard at providing you with quality home cooked meals, he's proud of the product he puts out. JJ is an amazing host that makes you feel welcomed and relaxed. Dining at Bear's Eatery is an experience you don't want to miss!
