At Great Bear Pub, a menu of pub fare peppered with curries, tzatziki, and Asian influences mingles with a lively atmosphere of live entertainment and high-definition TVs. For mealtime, the Smoky Mountain burger ($12.50) heaps a succulent beef patty with caramelized onions, apple-smoked bacon, and a toothpick for fighting off covetous dining companions. Tender chicken simmers in a lemongrass-infused coconut sauce in the Koh Samui green-curry chicken ($11.95), and fresh halibut and wild salmon tacos ($9.95) burst with notes from a lime-cilantro marinade.
Amid the flickering glow of 10 flat-screen high-definition TVs, live music and karaoke enliven the pub six nights a week, and weekly poker tournaments enable patrons to build houses of cards to protect meal leftovers. Additionally, Great Bear Pub strives to serve as a beacon of sustainability, touting biodegradable containers, a recycling program, and Ocean Wise certification.
Great Bear Pub
It’s hard to tell what’s more awe-inspiring: a 150-inch high-definition TV screen ablaze with a heated sports game or a 6-ounce beef burger patty towering with bacon, danish blue cheese, and blue-cheese mayo. Great Bear Pub lures patrons into its dark-wood restaurant with both of these treats, along with four other signature burgers, more than 20 craft beers, and a slate-stone outdoor dining area lined with televisions of its own. Patrons dig into internationally inspired eats, such as jamaican steak bites and cheese-stuffed pierogi, or stop in for a quick lunch that's prepared and presented in less than 10 minutes. The sophisticated pub also hosts live entertainment six nights a week, and sits alongside its own liquor store to ensure dry pint glasses don’t stage political revolts.
