The Bear’s Den: Putting the soul in soul food

The Bear’s Den is a restaurant located just steps away from Tattnall Square Park and Mercer University. It serves Southern soul food favorites such as fried chicken and mac and cheese.

The diner is owned by Kevin and Kristi Lyles. Their goal is to make customers feel at home.

“To me, soul food is food that reminds you of what your family would make served by people who treat you like family,” Kristi Lyles said.
