    Finally made it to The Grill on a Thursgay evening in the fall. Was told it was a great view so was happy to get a window table. Unfortunately, Sun shade was down and it took half an hour and three requests to the hostess and waitress before they raised it. Finally, a great view- for five minutes before it was dark outside. Other than that, food was great, wine and beer selection very good and good service. Will return in winter to see the snow covered slopes and sit by the fireplace.

    My husband and I went to The Grille on a Friday night for dinner. We reserved a table, but didn't have to...it was empty! I did wonder why since it was empty we didn't get a nicer table by a window perhaps? Everything started fine, the waitress was friendly and welcoming. It was all downhill from there! We spent 20 minutes waiting for our salad/soup only to discover the waitress was stood chatting at a table for at least 15 minutes! When she finally did bring our food it had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp. Overall I can imagine how this would be a nice restaurant but between the unattentive waitress and the bus boys who eerily creep around the resaurant waiting to clear your plates it just was not a wonderful dining experience.

    My husband and I dined at The Grille for our 33rd wedding anniversary, and really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the service. My husband (who loves hamburgers) said that the Bear Creek Burger was the best hamburger that he ever had!! I had the Chicken Jambalaya and really enjoyed it also. For dessert I had the vanilla bean cheesecake, and it was awesome!! I would definitely come back, and recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

    4 entrees - 1 vegan, 1 vegetarian...all delicious. Tried some different alcoholic drinks - they were great. Menu has a lot of options, and no problems getting a vegan entree. As it was a Monday night, the restaurant was not crowded, and the service was good, but not great. Will definitely come more often!

    My husband and I dined at The Grille at Bear Creek recently. While the food was superb and our waitress very attentive, the noise level was very off putting. I don't know if it was due to the large party seated next to us or just the vastness of the room.

    Food was excellent. Particularly good was the goulash soup, the smoked trout appetizer, the bacon-wrapped meatloaf, and the cherry gelato dessert. The servers were attentive, so much so that they were clearing plates before all our diners were done eating! Some people like that, but it does not seem polite. It was COLD in the restaurant. We like the scenic drive to The Grille, the setting by the slopes, and the food. The setting also provides a great place for an after-dinner stroll.

    Fried shrimp was not crispy but mealy and shrimp was overcooked. Jambalaya pasta was tasty, but the chicken was chewy. My wife had a chicken breast and thigh and it was very good and perfectly cooked. Drinks and dessert were good. Entrees were quite pricey for the quality.

    We came here for a special dinner during a very quiet Sunday evening. Everyone enjoyed their meals, but the slow service was frustrating! One of the people in our group has a severe peanut & tree nut allergy so he asked our waiter (Cody) several questions about how the food was prepared, etc. Cody left to find the answers and then when he returned, he still did not have the answers b/c he forgot to ask the questions. This happened a couple of times during the meal. In this day and age w/ so many food allergies, shouldn't the waitstaff know this information?

    My wife and I were surprised by the quality of the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. This restaurant is located within a ski resort/spa. We expected touristy type food but were surprised to find well prepared and presented upscale cuisine, which is unusual in the Lehigh Valley area. The scenery was also notable with the restaurant located at the base of the ski slopes surrounded by well manicured gardens and walkways. We will definitely return.

    Overall, we had a pleasant evening. We started the evening with the 3 dip appetizer, which was delicious and plentiful. Our waitress, Amanda, was attentive and checked in with us several times, bringing us additional bread to enjoy with our appetizer. Our entree sizes were just enough to eat and were very good as well. Our only surprise with the evening was when we first arrived was that a larger party had an infant there, who was not a happy camper and actually made it difficult for us to converse. Thankfully, the party did leave early into our dinner.

    Went with neighborhood friends to explore the Grille during summer. Two piece band was moderate in volume, food presentation and flavors were outstanding. Truly exceptional was the local trout appetizer which was quickly devoured by our two neighbor fisher folks. Tuna tasting was outstanding and salads were fresh, crisp and flavorful.

    Sandwiches/salads are ok... Entrees are WAY too expensive for the quality. We were there to sit outside and listen to live music; Service Master was there with 2 vans (carpet cleaning machines in the vans) right next to the deck where we were dining, cleaning carpets for the first 45 minutes of the music.

    There was a large event at the resort this weekend and this restaurant was overwhelmed. I'm sure the food and timeliness are usually very good. We waited over an hour and half for food and then only one of two dishese was good. The ribs were dry and fries unedibly salty. The last time I was here was more for drinks and apps, but I remember the experience being pretty great.

    I had made an online reservation for 8:00 PM and from what I could tell there was no place on the form to state whether you desired indoor or outdoor seating. We noticed empty tables on the deck area as we were walking in to the resort. When we approached the hostess stand and gave our name for the reservation, we were directed to a table indoors. I asked if it were possible for us to sit outside and was told we would have to wait another 25-30 minutes. We chose to wait and were seated a half an hour later, around 8:30 PM. Our food did not arrive until 9:30 PM. The food was amazing, as was the atmosphere, but the service seemed to be lacking. I would definitely visit again, but likely earlier in the evening.

    so, I understand it was a big bike weekend and that reservations on the computer says that the tables were full but.......we asked for an outside table and were told they are reserved. Then we asked for a window table and were told they are full too. We sat there and socialized for over 3 hours and the other tables we requested never filled up, not even half of them. I hope that it was just a bunch of people who didn't show up for their reservation cause there is no other excuse for not granting our request for a better table. The food was pricey but good. It was a great place to catch up with friends for an evening out though.

We got half a window and were seated over by the kitchen, so things were kinda noisy. Our food was absolutely fantastic though and our server so great, so we'll definitely be back. Next time, though I'll know to request table more in the middle of the restaurant.

    We had our first date at BC 3 years ago and wanted to celebrate there again. It was just as wonderful for the first date as it was this time. We will be back, maybe even to celebrate the big day! The only thing we would change is to ask the bikers to walk around and not through the dining area (partially undressed and/or dressed in their gear). It was a bit out of place.

    My husband and I recently spent the night at Bear Creek Resort to celebrate our anniversary. We ate at the Grille. We enjoyed our dining experience, but were disappointed that our server wasn't more familiar with the menu. Being it was our first visit, we had a few questions that he wasn't able to answer and never offered to find out. Even though, we had a delicious meal! We will most likely return. The live entertainment was a lovely addition totheromantic ambiance as well.

    My wife and I went to dinner on a Sunday night around 7:00. There wasn't much of a crowd but the service was extremely slow and very inatentive. The tables that were around us where previous diners ate remained dirty during the whole time we were there. The waitress was nice enough just not very service orientated. On a positive note, both mine and my wife's entrees were delicious.

    We had never been. I purchased the DCT Restaurant of the Month Calendar for my husband for Christmas and this was the June coupon. We will definitely come again. I reserved on line, added a special request to have a "nice table by a window" and was pleasantly surprised when someone called to confirm on the day of our reservation and specifically mentioned that we would be seated at "a nice table by a window". It made me feel very special. Thanks for a great dining experience.
