GENERATIONS OF SPORTS FANS
Here at Poke the Bear Restaurant, football is part of our history. As longtime Green Bay residents and football fans, we consider our history as part of our heart and make our business as much about honoring our team’s spirit as offering amazing meals.
Green Bay natives like us take pride in the fact that our team’s history is deeply embedded in our city and closely connected with that of the Hotel Northland, where our restaurant makes its home. Since its opening in 1924, the Hotel Northland has accommodated various football teams during their games, important political figures and explorers walking the Packers Heritage Trail.
The hotel was an important contributor to both tourism and support of our Green Bay team during its heyday — and now, as part of its reopening and revitalization, Poke the Bear Restaurant is enthusiastic and excited about continuing that role. You’ll feel our energy and warm spirit the moment you walk through the door.
