I really enjoy this restaurant. They have a great breakfast steak and eggs that they serve all day. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service.

Please be prepared to go there hungry! The servings are quite large! They have really good biscuits! I've also been there for lunch with work colleagues & loved their burgers!

Service wasn't bad, but a little slow, and it wasn't particularly crowded. They seem to pride themselves on bounteous portions, and they do deliver there. Fresh-squeezed orange juice was delicious.

Great place to sit and have a home-style meal (well, if chowder and fish and chips are ever homestyle). Very nice staff and lots of "bear related" stuff to see and possibly buy. The downside? Milpitas was in full stench while we were there. Apparently the nearby landfill and another plant keep the city pungent much of the time. The... More

The portions are a good size. The decor and music keep the kids entertained. We were seated in the back room because we had a large party. The server did not refill the drinks unless requested. We told the hostess it was my husband's birthday but nothing special was done or said. We didn't want to ask the server who... More

I went there for breakfast with my friend. It was a nice and homely place. The staff were very polite and friendly and the food was tasty - the portions were filling (was really hungry). What I noticed and really liked was that the staff were very friendly with the guests and many of them seem to be well known... More

Looking for something different I found Black Bear on TA. Good appearance...cross between Cracker Barrel, Bob Evans, and a trading post. Good portions and good selection...no one is losing weight in this place. Dinner: Soup...tri tips (steak) and ribs. All very good except ribs were very fatty and not worth eating. Apple cobbler was pie in foil. Breakfast: Largest and... More

It's not often I write a review before I even leave the restaurant, but this place is that good. Great menu with lots of variety. Well presented good, friendly staff and immaculately clean. A great find and I will come here again. Close to Cisco, SGI etc so handy for killing time ahead of a meeting.
