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.”

The biscuits and gravy are great value and delish!”
