This place rocks. Great food and tons of it. One of the best chicken fried steaks around! All the menu items are delicious. Prices are very good. Service is friendly. The location is one of the best for any restaurant. Great views of Mt Shasta. Easy on and off I-5. Highly recommended!

My veggie scramble was so so only. Not much taste to it. No love. Pancakes were dry. Felt like it had been done on an assembly line. The view of Mt. Shasta however, is probably the best in town! The server was great. Happy, fun and seemed like she loved her job! A PLUS!

The Black Bear Diners are fast becoming a favorite travel stop. The food quality is always great weather you stop in Bend Oregon, or Mt Shasta Calif. The service is a model all service providers should aspire to. Always fun for the family with bear decore.

The items that we wanted to order were already gone because the firecrews were still in town. We were totally ok with that. The turkey sandwich i had was really good with nice... More

I think this restaurant is the original of the chain. It's service is outstanding and the portions are indeed satisfying. We have stopped at this facility many times over the years for breakfast or lunch and have found it to above average for a chain type establishment. It appears the small town atmosphere friendliness permeates the restaurant as well.

If you want a good big breakfast this place is for you. The service is great as is the food. The location is just off I-5 so it's an easy stop on your road trip

Large portions are the key selling point here. The beef pot roast was tasty, though a bit salty. We shared a full portion...next time share a senior portion! Food is very decent and very comforting, but please don't expect gourmet cooking. We will continue to stop here on the way to Oregon, but know the limitations.
