Grew up and came her all the time as a kid and now as an adult. I can vouch that the appeal isn't just for locals. I have customers and colleagues who come in from out of town and just HAVE to hit "the Bear" for lunch or dinner specials when they're in town. It's low key, normal people. The... More

We stop here for lunch and dinner when we are in the area. Doesn't look like much from the outside but it is nice and quaint on the inside. Food has always been outstanding and the beer selection is very good. Staff have always been very friendly and service very good as well.

Traveling Route 15 we happened to stop at the Crippled Bear for lunch. It is a very attractive restaurant and bar with a long local history. There actually was a wounded bear in the story. You can read all about it on the dining room wall. The waitress was welcoming and the service was quick. Food was tasty and we... More

I like the Crippled Bear for their hamburgers and fries and very reasonably priced drinks. Typical bar food served hot and good. Usually have clam specials on Friday night. Always have specials of the day. Nice place to grab a bite to eat.

The Crippled Bear Inn looks a little rough from the outside but don't let the looks fool you. Inside is a warm friendly place filled with locals enjoying a few drinks and great food at very reasonable prices. It is located a few miles north of downtown Williamsport but it's well worth the drive to Enjoy the great food and... More
