The Bears Love to Do Things Differently, Instead of Having a Set Evening Menu, The Hungry Bear Changes Up his Menu Daily, Depending on What Ingredients are available locally... Instead of Focusing on a Menu Item You Want to Try we Ask Guests to Come with an Open Mind that You Will be Fed Well and Taken Care Of...However we will display a Template Menu Here as an Example of Some of Our Food Offerings..
