Black Bear Lodge & Saloon Reopening Plan 2.0

Welcome back! We are excited to be able to offer table side service again. Starting June 10th we will be able to offer dinning in our restaurant at 50% capacity. At Black Bear Lodge and Saloon we are doing our part to keep you and our staff safe! We’ve had to make some changes with that safety in mind.


Reservations are required

  • We are taking reservation for dinner in our dining room. For the saloon and deck we will be doing walk-in reservations.
  • We are allowing 90 minutes between reservations to extend availability to additional guests with the seating limitations we have. We also need extra time to properly clean and sanitize after each use.
  • Tables are limited to groups of 4; we can seat 6 if part of a family unit.
  • We will hold your reservation for 15 minutes.

New Safety Protocols

  • Menus will be single use.
  • We can seat at 50% capacity.
  • Tables are spaced six feet apart per guidelines. Please do not rearrange tables.
  • No Smoking on the deck. We will have a designated smoking area outside of the dining area.
  • Dogs are again allowed on the deck. Please keep them leashed and clean up any mess.
  • Maximum 250 guests at any given time.
  • Wash hands or use sanitizer before sitting at a table and after dining. Sanitizer is available in the entry way and on the deck.
