Has a good menu with a wide variety of options. We came in on a Sunday night with a party of eight. The food was very good but the service was a little slow. It was the end of September and the number of tourists is down. I think they have scaled sown the number of staff. We found this true of other restaurants this same weekend. That said, the food was good and the prices were reasonable

Black Bear has always been known for good food, great atmosphere and good service. On our last visit we found they had an October fest entry to their menu. Being German I ordered their Sausage plate. It came with three different sausages, purple cabbage, sauerkraut and spaetzle, The entire meal was great with exception to the sausages. These poor sausages has been grilled to the extend where all the flavor had been cremated.

One of our favorite restaurants in the Brainerd/Baxter area. Good food and a northwoods cabin decor. MN Surf & Turf was excellent. My wife had a "Honey Bear" cocktail (gin) which she loved. Good service, moderately priced. Saloon side is always fun.

Had lunch here on our way from Madden's to the airport without any idea what the place might be like. Wonderful surprise! Unique restaurant with a rustic theme. Comfortable booths. Relaxing atmosphere. Two levels. Delicious sandwiches, wild rice soup; congenial, accommodating, efficient waitress. Wish this place was in striking distance of home.
