Was here twice in the space of a week. Very good casual dining coupled with excellent craft, in this case IPA beer made on premises.
Food was good, beer was excellent.– Paul E., Great Neck, New York

The Big Bear is incredible - Excellent food and brew - Service was very good also. I would eat here again. Slightly noisy, and average prices. It's definitely a must visit place in Coral Springs with kids as well.

Hello Mr. Sherman!
We, the Office of the City Clerk here in Coral Springs, recently celebrated the retirement of one of our employees with a luncheon at Big Bear. Our server, Adam, was simply awesome and I wanted for you to know. He could not have been more obliging, enthusiastic, helpful and just plain nice! He was simply terrific!
I wish for you and Big Bear Brewing Company another wonderfully successful year. It is always a joy to visit your fine restaurant with my office and family ( you are indeed our favorite spot in the City and we've lived here for 41 years!)– Best Regards, Sandy Costa
Down in Dania Beach, with no selection of decent beer, I made the treck to Big Bear Brewery & it was worth it. Casey & Ashley were sweet and didn't keep me waiting. Their beer was very tasty and their seasonal Diablo was the best. Their IPA very good too, tried the sampler. Would like to have a full pint next time. The beer cheese soup came in a bread bowl and was smooth and excellent. Wish I could make beer cheese soup this well. Also had their wood fired pizza. Did not disappoint. The atmosphere was was much nicer than I anticipated. While they did have tv's on at the bar, it was a pretty classy joint.– aquascottk, San Diego, California
Been visiting sine 1997 when we stopped in after shopping all day. Didn't want to leave. Come back every year. Love the beer muenster cheese soup. Love the beer even more.– Denis Herrmann

award winning brewery, with seasonal brews as well as the regulars. half price wine bottles on Mondays, with 2 entrees. Tasty flatbreads, my husband always orders the fried chicken salad; loves the house dressing. Service is usually excellent. I just wish there was more change on the menu.– queenmaggiemd, Coral Springs, Fl.
Big Bear has been one of our favorite places to go in Coral Springs since we moved to Florida 11 years ago. The best staff, best food and always a lot of laughs.– Michael and Dorothy Green
As a fan of Brew Pubs, I often visit places I wouldn't take my grandchildren. Before I took my first sip of the Grizzly Red, I was already very impressed by the room. Modern glassed in open kitchen, dark wood paneling and brass railings reminiscent of an English pub. The menu was excellent, providing good choices for the entire family. My daughter was impressed by my choice of restaurant, and that doesn't happen very often. Great food, great beer... it's just a wonderful time to be alive.– larryheer, Carnelian Bay, California
I have eaten here many times & have yet to be disappointed. The beer & muenster cheese soup is my families favorite, as well as the calamari, & brie.... There are so many things, but recently we got on a little health kick & decided we were going to eat vegetarian for the night. I ordered the Vegetable plate & my husband ordered the veggie burger. My food was very good & had tons left over, but mainly because one bite of his burger & I devoured the entire thing. The beer sampler is awesome as well!

I have been coming here since you opened and always loved it. My husband of 37 years passed away 3 years ago and came back once with the office. Last night my son and I came in and had a great dinner and memories of our family eating and drinking there. thanks for everything!

I've been coming to this restaurant since I was a baby and have always loved it!– Gabbie Salway

Greg, we have been coming to Big Bear for 12 years. We have never been disappointed, not once. The service is impeccable, the food is always delicious, your prices are competitive & the music is fantastic. We bring all our friends and visiting family to Big Bear and least we forget about Matthew's outstanding microbrews for 9 years.– Sincerely, Rodney & Pat Lewis
Absolutely in love with this place!! Never had such comfort and feeling at home as Big Bear. Enjoy every meal and the best servers in the world!!! A sincere pleasure to meet owner Greg and Chef Rick - We shall return!!– Faye Zullick
Hi guys, I just wanted to tell you how much my wife and I enjoy having dinner at the Big Bear. Everything on your menu is a delicious surprise and we both think that your Brie Pillow is the perfect appetizer. Don't ever change a thing about it please! We always enjoy your beer sampler and it is pretty much impossible to decide which one is our favorite beer, they all rock! Just keep up the awesome work and we'll keep visiting you with our friends and family.– Best regards, Edward & Rosana Church, Tamarac, FL
Dear Zeva Polsyn, I just had to take the time to let you know once again what a wonderful time we all had at Big Bear tonight. You and your staff were just wonderful in every way possible. You all made this surprise party so very special. This was such a lovely evening, and it will be in our hearts for a very long time. The girls from Brookwood Group Home in Coral Springs were so lovely this evening, and had such a wonderful time too. Sometimes an evening like this can make many changes in the lives of people who need to feel special for at least one evening. Most of these girls come from difficult childhoods and have not been treated well in their lives, and a nice evening out can take you out of some of those feelings and make you feel that you are worth good evenings out and to be respected. My husband John, was truly surprised and loved everything - the food, the service, and the polite and professional way your staff treated everyone....and, of course, the wonderful evening with the girls and their staff from Brookwood. Thank you again so very much, it will be my pleasure to show our photos and to let everyone know about your great establishment. Your wonderful staff is a direct reflection on you as a Manager.
– Sincerely, Carin Puglisi, Coral Springs, FL
First, I just wanted to tell you that my boyfriend and I have lived in Coral Springs for the past year, and have made it a priority to come to Big Bear for dinner every week! Unfortunately, we are moving back to New York next week and won't be able to enjoy your delicious food and beer anymore. We have been to the restaurant countless times over the past year and have yet to have a negative experience. Every dish we have ordered was cooked to perfection every time. We have even raved so much about the establishment that we've had to take several visiting family members to dinner there to prove how good it is, and they have all agreed. I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful food - we will definitely miss it!– Aubrey A. Frank, New York, NY
I grew up in Coral Springs and have recently moved to the Washington DC area.... one of the biggest things I miss about home is going to Big Bear. I have searched high and low to find a beer and cheese soup that is on the same level as the Beer Muenster Cheese soup (and even attempted to make one of the various recipes out there) and I have always been disappointed. Again today I had one of my Big Bear cravings and Googled Beer Muenster Cheese soup, and imagine my surprise when I see the Big Bear website has their very own recipe up! I am telling the truth when I say that when I leave work today, I will be stopping at the grocery store to attempt the recipe. It will be the perfect dinner on this cold winter night. And miraculously you turn normal salads into ones I crave over any other restaurant. Thanks for always having great food and a great atmosphere....and maybe I could talk you into opening a restaurant in DC? America (and it's Capital!) could use a little more Big Bear!– Jillian Fleury, Washington, DC
