Black Bear Diners are all over the West Coast (plus a few in CO and UT)...comfort food and plenty of it though the steak I had was just OK and shrimp were overcooked. No lounge and no draft beer.

We should have looked a little more around cause this restaurant turned out to be just another fast food. Service is very good, portions are huge but the food itself is... OK. At least, the decoration is entertaining!

We enjoyed huge pies at Black Bear Diner. For a breakfast too huge and massive, take one together! Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere great.

Hosted a party of six. Seated promptly by friendly staff. It was a busy time of day, a we had to wait a bit for our food, but when it came out, it was just as we had ordered, and delivered to the table all at once by several servers. So we all were able to start at same time.... More

Large portion sizes, food was okay, we didn't understand why this was so highly rated for breakfast. I wouldn't recommend this for breakfast

Visited many Black Bear Diners and this rates in the top ten for friendliness of servers and high quality tasty food servings. The juicy ham breakfast is the best.

This is a good restaurant known for good quality food at a reasonable price and because of that we choose Black Bear Diner when traveling. This practice has not failed us especially in unfamiliar areas. This Black Bear location met our expectations and all 6 of us enjoyed our meals. I was so happy to find this chain restaurant in...
