I go to Mama Bears regularly and enjoy the food and service. There is always specials and a good menu to choose from. If your in town or just passing through stop in and have a great meal prepared by Sue or one of the ladies.

What can I say, if you are looking for the local fare, this is it. I always enjoy visiting local restaurants and talking with the people. Mama Bear's has both some interesting 'locals' plus some interesting travelers. The food is well prepared, a good value, with very good service. If you are in Jackman for an overnight, you will not... More

This is a quaint, little restaurant. There weren't many tables and only one server. The server was very friendly and efficient. The food was good and the serving size was large. We would recommend this restaurant.

On the way to Quebec via the very scenic Old Canada Highway. Stop in Jackman for fuel and a bite.... this is on the way into town from the south. Very cozy place and a warm welcome. We split a signature sandwich... excellent freshly prepared and generous. We opted for Onion Rings... hand cut then and there FANTASTIC. I rate... More

Gassing up in Jackman on our way to Quebec City, we decided to find lunch.... The first place we poked our noses in smelled of fried food so we walked across the street to Mama Bear's. It's a small place but wildly popular which is a good sign and the salads being prepared on the small bar looked fresh and... More

Family was looking for a basic dinner, and Mama Bear's delivered. Waitress was friendly, and kept our drinks filled. Meatloaf special was just like Mom's, and the burgers while basic, were good and filling. Fries were great, both with the burgers, and on the poutine.

We ate at Schmoozes and at Mama Bears driving to/from Canada and neither was good. At Mama Bears the waitress wasn't happy when we asked for a spoon and then some more mayo. The food was OK, but not great and when lunch costs $50 with tip I expect it should be better and the waitress should be pleasant. We... More

Busy when we visited Jackman because of few other eateries and uneven hours. Seemed popular with locals. Cooking was filling.

One of us reviewed pics on TripAdvisor and one chk'd out website. Decision to eat there was based on website. TripAdvisor pics are representative of the restaurant vs the website seems inaccurate to food quality and presentation. We ordered chicken fingers and steak salad. Both were ok but neither were noteworthy. Service was average.
