Stopped in here for a drink and a bite. There were issues ordering food because the kitchen was backed up with two large parties, so that killed really enjoying dining here. We had drinks, super service from a really nice bartender. The place was crowded...More

We visited The Black Bear Tavern to have some wings and watch the hockey game. It was a very friendly atmosphere and the wings were delicious! We highly recommend the Asian Zing wings!

Haven't visited this restaurant for several years, but we had dinner here last night. Delicious crab cake and corn. Salad very fresh. Waitress was very accommodating! Will definitely return.

The Black Bear Tavern served us Crab Cakes and Sliders. While warm, neither came hot and neither were special in any way. Average food, decent service. Ok for lunch.

Stopped for dinner one night of our visit to Deep Creek. We picked a table on the porch. Food was good and prompt service. Enjoyable dinner.

Not impressed. Typical greasy bar food not real fresh ingredients, no real butter available. Server was nice. Food was not as described and was bland.
