Welcome to the Bears Den!

The Bears Den uses ancient ovens to make the most incredible gourmet pizzas you have ever tasted. The indoor and outdoor ovens not only produce our amazing pizzas but many other incredible entrees. The 180 seat indoor outdoor restaurant is located on the 126 acre Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch in beautiful Pilot Point Texas which is also the home of Barnaby and Bailey our rescued black bears that have dinner with you. Just five feet off the dinning deck you will truly have the experience of a lifetime with food, friends and a pair of 400 lbs. bears that you will always remember. From the ancient ovens to the full bar the Bears Den is one of Denton County’s finest restaurants and rest assured part of the proceeds are used to help rescue more animals all across the United States.
