This is an adult restaurant (bar and grill) with specials like football sunday and ladies night and poker nights and two for one specials on first drink before 5pm.
The food is pretty good. For under $10 you can get a large portion cheese steak or chicken steak sandwich with a small salad. And if you are really crazy you can try their ice cream made with beer in the ingredients. (we passed on that one).
Of course, they have dozens of handcrafted beers that are made right on the premises.
It really is a fun place to get something to eat and drink.
The decor is all dark woods with a slight pub feel to it (at least that is what they were trying for but it doesn't resemble any English pub I have ever been in).
The waitresses are friendly but not very fast on the delivery (more like bar maids than waitresses). The food was very good and the prices were right.
Stop in on your visit to Bear; it's right on US40; and have a draught and steak.
Address: 219 Governors Square

We had breakfast at the Bear Diner. Pancakes, waffles, omlette, toast, coffee, danish all served with a copy of the morning paper and a smile from the waitress.
Small local diner with no frills; good food, good price.
The place was clean and the service was fast (only two other customers there).
Fed four for breakfast for $20 including tip.
Favorite Dish: I am partial to a couple of good-sized waffles with strawberry jam.
Address: 603 Pulaski Highway

With the word Texas in the name of the restaurant, I bet you think that beef is main item on the menu. And you 'd be 100% correctomundo.
They have a steak platter called "Road Kill" that is tremendous. Inch-thick slab of the most tenderest hunk of cow served up in its own juices on a hot metal plate.
The ambiance is a mix of mild-trucker mixed with Texicana and a little bit of Applebees thrown in. Peanuts are free and shucks go on the floor.
Price is right up there at $16 for a steak and tater (in 2004), beer was $2.50. Add apple pie dessert and a nice tip for a good waiter and were talking $40 a couple.
Address: 250 Buckley Boulevard
Directions: along US40 (Pulaski Highway) just past the route 1 overhead
