I've had lunch and dinner at the Bear Pit probably 10 times over a 20-year period. I'm not sure why I go back from time to time. I guess it's because I keep hoping that the food will get better. Now don't get me wrong,...More

Found this place on TripAdvisor. Lovely place. Good food. Ordered a BBQ rack with side. More then enough for me. Never been in the States in 50s or 60s. But still remembered me on the restaurants on that days.

We have eaten at this restaurant since we were teenagers. Moved out of the area but back for a visit and absolutely had to stop in for lunch. The barbecue pork sandwich on garlic toast was fantastic. It did not disappoint in anyway. All new...More

We went to The Bear Pit for lunch. As expected, the barbeque is very good. It's served not smothered in sauce, so you have to add your own. There is the house sauce on the table and a hot sauce is offered by the server....More

The Bear Pit is a classic, unpretentious, comfortable spot with excellent food and good service. It's one of my all-time favorite restaurants. I grew up going to the one in Glendale, which sadly is gone now. Thankfully, we still have this one! It's good for...More
