Line wait guaranteed 2 hrs if not more. Forget eating at all on Thursdays. All the food just seems to taste the same. Mass produced and its a buffett. Cant expect any different. Prices are no longer affordable. Maybe breakfast is the best deal.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch today and it was great. The cost was only $8 per person and that was awesome. I could never even come close to making a meal for what I payed at the Bear. We will be back!!!

Didn't enjoy waiting in line to get into the buffet, but waiting in line for the made to order omelette was worthwhile.

My, wife, kids, and I, went to the Bear Buffet for supper when we visited and even though it was a bit costly, it was very good. Everything was full and the food was very good. We will certainly be back when we visit again.

The breakfast buffet is a great deal. Lots of choices and all well prepared. It's all you can eat so don't panic that you chose the wrong thing. Just go get what you want. It's all good. With the casino's coupon for dollars off, it...More
