They were very busy when I visited but found me a table. My dinner was good and the food fresh. The veggies were nice - sauteed summer squash & broccoli.

I gave Black Bear Diner an extra "star" because they offered all veterans a free meal, including drinks, on Veterans Day.Yeah!

Red, white, and blue everywhere..Balloons..Lots of veterans in uniform. Black Bear Diner food... More

You can pretty much expect a lot of food and so far, the quality has been great and the service is always friendly.

We enjoyed a nice meal while travelling on I-5 at the Black Bear Diner in Willows. The menu is varied and the food is good. The service was great. I definitely recommend this as a stopping place for a meal in Willows.

We just love eating at these diners because the service is great, everyone is friendly, a great choice of food on the menu & always hot as we like it. We experienced our first diner in Redding in 2006 & have been going to them ever since along 5 to include Auburn & many other locales.

Good service, variety on the menu. Decent house wine, my wife loved the Chicken Parmesan, and my steak was average, but the garlic fries were great!

The BB Diner has a nice atmosphere, good food and plenty of it. You might consider splitting a meal with a friend.

We started frequenting Black Bear Diners in the the Northern California and Oregon area 5 or so years ago after randomly finding one along I-5 in, as I recall, in the Redding area. At that time it was quite good and since then we've gone to this chain many times. However, in the past year or so two things seem... More

The Willows Black Bear Dinner was amazing. The food was delicious and the service was better. The staff was so friendly. You can tell we were in a small town. its wonderful that people know each other all over town. The next time we are out in Willows we will plan on staying longer. Thank you.
