Fodor's Review

People come for the large portions of hearty but basic food at this log building with the look and feel of a Western hunting lodge. The menu is strong on burgers, steaks, fish, and chicken.

the beartrap is BACK!!

After an almost 4 year hiatus of terrible food and terrible service, the BEARTRAP has a new owner and things have turned around. signature menu items like the jack daniels burger, the beartrap burger, Jambalaya pasta, and homemade pot roast make it hard to choose what to eat. New owner is a chef and takes pride in his work. Plus they have Guinness on tap!!! Drop in the Beartrap if you have the chance, you won't be disappointed!!
