One of my favorite places to eat in Las Vegas.

This place is one my favorite places to eat in my hometown. We've been coming here for a long time...well over 15 yrs at least. We had gotten to know the owner/manager, over the years, who was always friendly and pleasant, and always greeted us with a smile. Though we are somewhat happy and sad... read more

Eaten here several times. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Food is always very tasty and lots of it. Little pricey but for as big as the servings are guess that compensates. Good service..

Don't eat here if you don't want to feel guilty for blowing your diet. The chicken fried steak is awesome (available in 5oz or 10oz). Super friendly and fast service Very clean Wide variety of menu selections Desserts are to die for!

We went to Black Bear Diner for breakfast 8/19/15. The place is unique and very clean! Service was fantastic! Everyone working there is friendly and welcoming! Great Start! We went to have breakfast after eating at Cosmopolitan on the strip the day before, and getting horrible service. Black Bear Diner is so much more appreciative and welcoming! You need to... More

The portions were large and the service was very good. This is a great place for typical home style cooking. I will return. Don was the manager and he was first class!

Off strip, cozy diner. I did not realize it was a chain. The food is good and prices are too. Staff is friendly and manager is on the floor assisting in busy times.

We came to eat at Black Bear Diner and we walked in and Don the manager approached us and said Hello Welcome to Black Bear Diner how are you? Wow what a greeting. He then sat us at a booth and asked us we wanted fresh squeezed orange juice and several other drinks. He came back within 2 min with... More

I picked Black Bear Diner because of the reviews I read. We had a group of 13 so I called and made reservations. The food was great and so was the service. Our waitress's name was Flower, she did a great job. Tom was the manager that day so we had to compliment him as well. We had a great... More
