A couple of years ago, I ate in a Black Bear Diner in another city and enjoyed it so I thought I would give this one a try. I was not disappointed. The serving sizes were ample, the food was good, the servers were friendly and the price was very reasonable...you definitely get your money's worth.

This is diner type food in a hunting lodge atmosphere....the food great, but all of the local know about it, so you might have a bit of a wait at times....Great meat loaf!

Had what I would call a French Dip sand which. That's not what it was on the menu. The au jus had no flavor. The meat, though plentiful, wasn't too great either. Chocolate pie? Awesome, but too big. We should have split it.

Had the roast beef dinner which was very good! Found out that they have a smaller size which fit me fine. This is a good place to go on a budget. No alcohol just good food with breakfast available all day long.

If you want good food in huge portions at honest prices, then Black Bear Diner is for you. Located on Leavesley Road at Highway 101, this Shasta-headquartered chain also has a location 30 miles south in Salinas.

Love this place. Breakfast is awesome and so much food. First place my kids want to eat when they fly in from Texas. Never had anything not good. Be prepared to wait a little if on weekends but well worth it!

Never had a bad meal here. We come here at least once every time we come to Gilroy. Great food, service, atmosphere. You can't go wrong.
