First visit, will definitely return.

We drive through Bethel on the way t o South Arm ME. Weve tried several of the Local restaurants and werelooking for something different. We got to the Diamond close to closing time, but the staff treated us as if we had plenty of Time. I ended up getting the scallops and they were delicious... read more

Not much to say about this place. Been coming here about once a year for the past decade in hopes that they've improved. While they haven't gotten any worse, they haven't made many strides despite changes in ownership. Atmosphere in this place is severely lacking. Service has been mediocre and the food isn't much better.

i had been expecting that due to unrestrained pollution and the way the agricultural industry has lobbied, petitioned and been approved by the USDA to raise and process meats in the United States that leaving this country was the only option for routinely finding a steak or any meat with flavor and texture reminiscent of what grilling was like before...

Other than noticing this restaurant as we drove by on our way to a Sunday of skiing, my wife and knew nothing about it. We gave it a try for dinner and it turned out to be just perfect for us. Very comfortable, casual atmosphere. Our friendly and efficient waitress offered her suggestion on the best smaller-sized steak to order.... More

7:15 pm dinner during President's Day week and restaurant was about 1/2 full. Meal, uninspired house salads and steak, came out almost instantly. Really prepared too fast, with the steak served only a few minutes after the salads arrived. White bread rolls, no refills. Mashed sweet potatoes overly sweetened and seasoned with cinnamon. Partner's plate was cleared before he was... More

We went for a casual dinner on a Sunday night and everything was perfect! The restaurant was quite because it was 8:00 and there was a Patriot's game on. We ordered burgers and a very nice bottle of Red. I inquired with our Waitress is I could have a small side salad instead of fries. She immediately said "Yes" and... More

We do like to visit this restaurant but it doesn't always have the best evening atmosphere. It tends to be fairly quiet and subdued but the food is good and we always enjoy our visits here.

This was one of the few establishments open on a weeknight early season in the Sunday River area. The menu has lots of options from steaks and burgers to fish and chicken. The entrees were well prepared and satisfying. Service was quick and prices fair for this resort area.

We visited the Black Diamond Steak House on a Tuesday in early November. One of the reasons we chose this restaurant was because it was a 'local' hangout with what appeared to be a steady business through summer and week days all year long not only at the height of ski season. While service was excellent, the food was a... More
