Orange Bear Grill opens in Casino at Dania Beach



Orange Bear Grill

The Casino at Dania Beach, 301 E. Dania Beach Blvd., 954-920-1511,

This comfort-food eatery has debuted on the first floor of the Casino at Dania Beach, which reopened in 2016 after $60 million in renovations.

Customers order to-go meals at the counter or get full service in the sleek, industrial dining room with brick walls and a gray, suspended geometric ceiling.

“The casino crowd is a fun, high-energy crowd that goes with the atmosphere we wanted,” says Shane Barton, who owned previous locations of Orange Bear Grill in Bonita Springs. “My original location was a 13-seat, 30-by-20 booth in a flea market, then expanded to the Bonita Springs Moose Lodge. Every year, we have grown in location to now a bright-orange building that felt like it was meant to be home for the Orange Bear brand.”

Signatures include biscuits and sausage gravy with eggs ($8.50); nine renditions of chicken wings (10 for $9; 20 for $17.50); Chicken Sunrise sandwich with buttermilk-fried chicken, bacon and egg ($9); the Noble sandwich with beer-braised barbecue pulled pork, bacon and grilled ham ($10.50); and a double-bacon-bourbon-cheddar burger ($12).

Three meals are served per day. Alcohol is not served but is available at the casino bars.
