- for breakfast. Scrambles and omelettes are outstanding. Portions are huge. The " less" meals are large.

Always good for selection, service, and taste. The sweet cream pancakes are the best. The sandwiches are good. The burgers are good. The service is friendly too! I would much rather eat here then many other chains for breakfast and lunch.

When traveling to Reno or California we always choose Black Bear Diner over Ihop, Shari's, or Denny's. They have a great selection of food and even choices for the weight conscious. The potatoes are great, the eggs done and not runny, and the meats are good. I've had the veggie low-cal omelet and highly recommend it. It's filling and you... More

We have eaten at a few different Black Bear Diners and were always very happy with all the food. We have passed through Redding many, many times over the years but never stopped at this BB Diner. We decided to stop for lunch this time. Our waitress, Joanne, was very good & attentive. We ordered the Avocado Bacon Club sandwich... More

We regularly stop at this popular restaurant. My hubby loved the steak and egg special, and I enjoyed a choice off the "fit" section. The servings tend to be enormous, so I enjoy the lighter and smaller portions that are available if you look for them. They still are generous in size. The service was quick and friendly, and we...

I love BB diner. Great atmosphere, friendly staff with huge portions of just so so food. I've been to Mt. Shasta and St. george locations as well. Love the desserts, especially the mini pies: banana cream!

We stop at Black Bear Diner several times a year. It is ALWAYS great food. We have noticed the same service staff are here year after year. Big testimat on the quality of the food. Manager is often waiting tables and taking orders. Will stop again on next trip no matter what time of day.

Black Bear Diner offers good, old-fashioned food on a very large menu. Servings are very large and can be a bit overwhelming. Prices are very reasonable.
