I highly recommend the burger with home made bannock, it is very tasty. The service was quick and friendly. They have ample seating inside and out. Very nice place to go for good food.

"Ice cream service is really lacking..."

We camp at Rowan’s Ravine every year. Have gone to Mama Bear’s many many times over the last three years. I am disappointed that they are still severely lacking in the ice cream service department. Every time we went to get ice cream this summer it was at least 15 minute wait. The longest time we waited was a half an hour, an that occurred often. All for 5 ice cream cones. I understand long wait times and confusion the first year you’re open, but Mama Bear’s has been open for 3 seasons now and it seems like nothing has changed. Over the course of a week, we were served two ice cream cones with broken cones. If the server had mention that the cone was broken and offered to give us a new one, or even a bowl, that would have been fine. But both times, they handed us a broken cone and said nothing, fully aware that it was broken. We had to ASK for a bowl to put our broken cone in both times. Not impressed and I know this has happened to other people as well. The food is great and indoor service is fine, but I am severely disappointed in the service we have received when ordering only ice cream. Wait times are ridiculous and there no way it takes half an hour to serve 5 hard ice cream cones.

"Good food"

Busy when we were there so expected to wait a bit - we had drinks and didn't mind the wait. Food was delicious very good. We had a Bannock Burger and an order of the fish and chips. They also have very good Bear Paws for dessert - bannock fried with cinnamon sugar. Nice to have a restaurant with a decent range of options on the menu over here.

"Terrible service"

This is from September 4th,2017. Not impressed. Very bad service needs to train her staff to be more efficient with customer service especially in the ice cream area. Guidance to these young people in how to create a steady work flow is not there. A person should not have to wait over 45 minutes for ice cream. One poor lady's ice cream fell onto her shirt before she could even taste it. Not sure how soft ice cream just falls off a cone, unless the ice cream has air in it.She mentioned it to the staff but left without a new ice cream. I cannot imagine what the wait time would be for a meal. Momma bear you have two windows there utilize them. Orders one window and pick up the other. Help your staff when it's busy. I told the server that she was to tell her boss they have rotten service and I will be writing a review.

"Ice cream"

The Ice cream was fine , the problem we had was the portion size. I doubt we received 2 oz of ice cream and a tea spoon of topping for $4.00. Really not very fair. The service was very slow too. There was no one there except us and it took 10 minutes to dispense to tiny sundaes. The person serving was friendly that was a plus. Sorry Mama bear. The road out to the Provincial Park was very bad. Actually it's dangerous. Pot holes and gravel for 25 km. To bad really the Park and the beach are beautifully.

"Slow to No Service.....AGAIN...."

Nice place, delicious food, no argument there, service painful. Talked to slot of people and same comment, wait and wait and wait, never had a server come to us, had to get our own menus, flag down a server, no service after meals finally came. Time before just for ice cream, waited 25 minutes for 2 cones. Everyone outside saying same thing. Need to get more staff on busy season and actually serve the customers or there won't be any to serve, no matter how good the food is.

It is traditional for my husband and me to have our breakfast on the morning we are leaving. The owner and her staff are exceptional and very friendly, and the food exceeds the quality of some city restaurants! Whether it is coffee, a Bear Paw(yummy!) or a full meal, we have never been disappointed! I don't think we could feel more welcome if we were in her actual home! See you again next year, for sure!

"Wonderful meal"

We recently ate at Mama Bear's Den as treat for our last night at Rowan's Ravine Provincial Campground. Had we known it was going to be that good, we would have eaten there sooner. The greek salad was fresh and a good size. The Indian taco was one of the best I have ever had. To top it off, we had the Bear's Paw dessert with ice cream and caramel sauce. Unbelievable. Our server was prompt and attentive. We had a wonderful time.

"Poor serivce"

Been there 2 times this summer. And I have to say. The wait for ice cream is to long. Waited over 20 mins for. 2 ice cream cones. Had some milk shakes and they wore gross. The old owners ran it better!

Another awesome supper at Mama Bears tonight. The Den Burger was very good. Homemade burger and homemade fries yum! I have always enjoyed everything I have ordered here. The staff are attentive and eager to please and Michelle is a very attentive owner. She always wants her customers satisfied. What a great place to enjoy at the Lake ❤️!
