We had breakfast here with family. The food was very good, but the chocolate chip pancake was awesome. If I had known I would not have ordered eggs. Love the fact that you can make your own plate with their four option menu.

Black Bear has family style meals. Serving breakfast all day. The cinnamon roll French toast is great. They give a 10% discount if you stay at the Quality Inn.

If you LOVE chicken fried steak, like I do, the Black Bear Diner is the place to go to chow down on the Big Foot Chicken Fried Steak dinner. The steak is so large, it takes up about half of the platter they serve it on. The country gravy and homemade mashed potatoes are delish! Very big portions, a fresh... More

Food is good and service was good but parking is a bummer so avoid the restaurant because of this especially on Saturday and Sundays for breakfast.

We had dinner here while staying at the adjacent Quality Inn. It was fine. The meatloaf was okay but the gravy seemed canned. Maybe just kept warm too long. The taco salad was pretty good. And large. Our server recommended the bread pudding and it was good. Kind of as expected for a chain restaurant - fine.

The wait was long to be seated but it was worth it. The food came out quickly and was perfect. Our server was very attentive. It is a family favorite and we will continue to go back.

Breakfast selection and quality above average and of a reasonable price. Poor service. O.J. was served warm and not cold as it should be. Tasted freshly squeezed. Chefs questionable on cleanliness standards. Tattoos always speak unclean to me. No gloves observed. Last time didn't get sick. Hopefully same result this time. Better than Ihop across the street.

When in AZ this is one of my favorite places to have breakfast. Big protions, fast service and delicious food. The menu is large so you may want to review online before going there or it could take you a while to decide. The pancakes are AMAZING; light, fluffy, and HUGE. Mine actually was hanging off the plate. If you're... More
