It must have been too hot for bears on the day that we traveled there. The food alone certainly is not worth the visit.

We didn't see any bears (just at the end of hunting season). Service was as good as the staff...Plenty of options, just tasted ok.

The food and service here were very good. They stop feeding the bears in mid-September "due to hunting season," and recommence "when the snow melts." The prices are reasonable, but note that use of a credit card will add 3% to the bill.

Call ahead to make reservations for a table by the Windows. You can have a great meal with drinks while watching all the bear feed.

Location was in a run down area with an abondoned mall with broken windows across the parking lot. Service was very slow and only two waitresses to do everything, even making drinks! Only three choices of tap beer. Very run down and dirty looking. Chicken...More

As other reviews have mentioned, there are wild bears eating outside the window. This was more than I expected - I thought they would be captive. My kids loved this! Food was good too!
