Cinema

“Bear Tooth is the sister restaurant to Moose's Tooth, except it offers the option to watch a movie—from classics to first-run films. Choose a standard sit-down meal, or have your meal as you enjoy a film. The full menu (including Moose's Tooth's world-famous pizza) is available for movie-goers, and there's even a beer station in the back of the theater. A few booths are available for reservations, and they seat four comfortably. Call early to make sure you get one.”

“This place has wonderful food and a great vibe! There can be a bit of a wait, but they have an outdoor fire pit you can enjoy while waiting. The coffeehouse side is great for kids with games to keep them occupied! Service can be a little slow as well but don’t think I have had a bad meal yet! ”
