    Jill and her staff put together our Rehearsal dinner as well as a Bridal Shower. Both were amazing! The decorations matched my wedding colors exactly and the food was delicious!! We had several family members from out of state that had never been to Great Bear before and they were blown away by the professional service and great food!! Highly recommend this locations for all of your Wedding events!!

    We had a fabulous wedding and reception at Great Bear. It was absolutely beautiful. The only downside was that we were not told up front when we booked about the food minimum and the beverages didn't count toward the minimum, so we were over budget for food/drink. Other than that, the food was good, and they were very accomodating.
