The University of Maine Dining Services has opened table service for select hours in its Bear's Den Cafe & Pub. Offered weekdays from 4:30-7 pm, the service offers the Bear's Den's usual menu but with waitstaff service and is designed to appeal to groups and those looking for a relaxing place to eat before a special even. Diners can use all methods of payment, including the school's Black Bear Bucks and dining funds, and there is no tipping.
