A 3,000-square-foot pub-style restaurant with a crunchy sports-bar center, Black Bear Saloon lures revelers with its happening atmosphere and anchors them in place with a classic American menu of sandwiches, burgers, salads, and other casual fare. An extensive appetizer menu primes jaw muscles for a marathon meal with starters such as the Black Bear Saloon's Piglets, four sliders of pulled pork topped with sautéed onions ($8.99). Whetted appetites can move onto belly fillers such as the Bear Burger Club ($9.99), which silences grousing stomachs and bamboozles turkey farmers with USDA Choice beef filling the gap between two pieces of white toast alongside bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
The Kodiak sandwich tops turkey breast with melted swiss, russian dressing, bacon, and coleslaw ($8.49), and the Black Bear Cub Campfire lets desserters make their own s'mores ($9.99) at their tables, with merit badges awarded at the server's discretion. Black Bear Saloon's more than 25 flat-screen TVs beaming DirecTV sports packages attract spirited fans, live music twice a month, and a live DJ on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays beckons music lovers.
