On Thursday, December 12, 2019, local Tallahassee foodie favorite, The Flying Bear Great American Grill, announced that their restaurant was sold and will be changing ownership. Their last day of service will be Saturday, December 14, 2019. For over 6 years, The Flying Bear has been serving customers tasty brunch, lunch, and dinner at 6265 Old Water Oak Rd.
On Facebook, current The Flying Bear ownership expressed their gratitude to customers who have supported them over the years, saying, “Thank you Tallahassee and Thomasville for supporting us for over 6 years!” However, no mention of who is taking over the restaurant was mentioned. “The Flying Bear is being sold to an unnamed business.” Fans of the locally-owned restaurant are both saddened and shocked, and have expressed their grievances towards the restaurant’s news on social media.
Updates on new ownership and changes will be posted on social media as they are made. The Flying Bear ownership finished their announcement, saying, “We want to give a big bear hug to our hardworking employees and loyal customers. It has been our pleasure serving the Big Bend.”
