The Bear’s Den offers diners a friendly, casual atmosphere, awesome fireplace. It is definitely the perfect choice when only a burger will do. Or poutine. One of the best beef dips in town, bar none. And the fish n chips? wow. So good. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Tonight I felt like something smaller, so I opted for the Buffalo Chicken Poutine; classic poutine topped with roasted chicken breast strips smothered in hot sauce and topped with a ranch drizzle. Delicious. (Not exactly on my diet, but hey …)
Also, did I mention that the wings are amazing, and they come in a ton of flavours – Franks Hot, Maple Whiskey, Sweet Chilli, Cajun, Carolina BBQ Mustard, Bears Den Mix, Honey Garlic, Lemon Pepper, Smoked Applewood, Salt n Pepper, Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic, TNT, Maple Sriracha, Buffalo Dry Rub. We had the Maple Whiskey ones, soooo good.
If you’re in the market for a great sandwich, try The Backcountry Beef Dip: In house roasted beef topped with sauteed onion, mushrooms and swiss cheese on a pretzel baguette with au jus. Typically served with fries, you can switch up your sides like crazy – Home Fries, Garlic Mashed, Daily Soup, Mixed Greens (With your choice of dressing: very berry, avocado, ranch, oil and vinegar, sweet chili lime, blue cheese or white balsamic lemon vinaigrette). I highly recommend the avacado dressing, it’s made in-house and it’s to die for.
