We visited The Bears Den restaurant after walking the Red Pine Trail near Nestor Falls (which is a nice 2.4 km trail). Food was delicious with lots of it and service is great. Will definitely be back to try breakfast that is served all day....Check the hours before you come tho. Open til 4 most days and closed some. They also sell knitted slippers, mitts and children’s sweaters at a very reasonable price. Thank you!More

Great food and wonderful service. Warning-- the serving sizes are huge! We ate there for lunch and went back for lunch the next day. We would have gone there for dinner as well but it's only open until 2pm!

Ate there twice in a week. First time for breakfast,got the Den special. It was good, love the raspberry jam they have there. Waitress very friendly and courteous. Returned a week later for lunch. My favorite for this meal was the side salad. Large portion...and fresh. Had same waitress along with another one that refilled our drinks. Spoke with 3 of the people working there. Small, nice little place.More

Enjoyed both breakfast and lunch at the Bear's Den. Would have had dinner too,but they close at 4 pm. They had biscuits and gravy as their breakfast special, which was really, really good for a great price. The service was spot on. Our waitress was...busy, yet still was very efficient & friendly, talking with all her customers, making rounds with coffee and making sure we had everything we needed. Enjoyed a hot beef sandwich and fries for lunch Which was extremely tasty !! Tender roast and homemade fries. Highly recommend stopping here for a great meal.More

We stopped here on our way from Sioux Narrows to Fort Francis for a late breakfast. It was absolutely fantastic. The ham and the home fries were highlights but the rest of our breakfasts were also absolutely delicious.

I travel to Nestor falls once a week for work & this place was recommended to me and now I know why. This little cafe is always so busy. Food,service, and atmosphere are all excellent. I enjoy their all day breakfast most visits. Best in...town for breakfast & lunch! My choice when in Nestor Falls, and many others choice it would seem.More

This has became our restaurant of choice when we visit LOTW area. The food is always hot & delicious. Service is always excellent. We have never been disappointed. Not only is the food & service the best in town, talking fishing stories with the locals...of the area that hang out here is always a great experience. Once you finish your meal (if you can) you can grab your cold ones, minnows and groceries all located in the same building. The location has it all! Highly recommend The Bear's Den. A friendly family owned, small town charm feel. The coffee is always fresh, their portions are large & the atmosphere can't be beat!More

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat and received friendly greetings. Service was quick and food delicious. The décor is uniquely 'bear' and features some local art. Family owned.

Stopped on our way back from Kenora, remembered it as having good food. Attached are pics of the food, very good, worth the 15 minute wait from sit down to receiving. This isnt fast food by any means, but it is good food. Try the...Bears Den Breakfast Special. Interestingly Enough, it is attached to a large grocery store with 7 isles of groceries. Great place to stop to eat and stock up.More

Had the chance to eat @ The Bear's Den during a recent trip to Nestor Falls, Ontario. The restaurant is located in the Sunset Place shopping strip just north of Nestor Falls. I had the Philly Cheese Steak with home style fries and my wife...had the Greek salad. Portions were very good. I had so many fries, I actually couldn't finish them all. Wait staff were so nice. You eat in, take out or they have ready made subs the call "grab & go" which are for travelers or those anxious to get on the water for some fishing action. They also serve breakfast all day, so lots of choices. Cute decor & just a wonderful gem. Will definitely return during my next trip to the area!More

Got a big man's hunger? $7.95 gets you 2 eggs, 2 toast, 4 sausage links and a large helping of pan fried potatoes. Add a bottomless cup of coffee and taxes and for $10.60 all in you've had one heck of a good meal. Just...like the breakfasts Dad made before we went out to cut pulpwood. Eggs over easy done perfectly. Sausages freshly fried, not reheated and wrinkled. Potatoes firm and fried just right, not re-fried again and again until they're like little lumps of coal. And great coffee. You don't have to ask for a refill. The server makes regular rounds, topping up your cup. And if you're really hungry, go for the Grizzly breakfast. Good luck finishing it and then trying to get into your boat!More
