On entering this diner we were very impressed, you would imagine you were in a small town diner in the middle of nowhere not las vegas. Staff were cortious and very friendly, service was very quick and food arrived promptly, good choice on the menu and prices reasonable, I ordered a seniors meal as I find normal portions too big,...

Good breakfast with HUGE portions. Sweet cream pancakes are almost as big as the plate but really good and fluffy. Yummy biscuits, link sausage, ham, and red potatoes. We ate here before going on a strenuous mountain hike and the carb overload helped us get to the top. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Will return on next visit to Vegas.

If you are tired of buffets and want a simple meal of good food at very reasonable prices, come here. It is well worth the 10 minute drive. I had the Mexican scramble and it was an over abundance of good food...spicy, fresh and delicious. My companion had the Griz which is enough to feed a family of 4...sweet cream... More

When you want to know where to get good food at reasonable prices, ask the people who live in Vegas. Brandon, a security guard at the Surrender club told us about this place, and he was right.We took a cab ride off the strip and it was well worth the trip. The food was delicious and the portions were huge.... More

First, no dislikes. This is a family style restaurant with many menu selections. Service is fast, food is good. Staff is friendly and courteous. Don't forget the take out bakery items.

We have been here before when traveling to Las Vegas. The food has always been good and the value is also good. This time we had eggs benedict, California chicken sandwich and grilled cheese with bacon. All were extremely well made and the ingredient's were fresh. The unfortunate thing is that the volume of food was so great that we... More

I am a regular user and contributed to Trip Advisor so when I read reviews I trust they are accurate and most are spot on. I'm sorry to say Black Bear is not even close to the rave reviews it has received. Now all places can have bad nights but when it's fairly quiet and it takes 45 minutes to... More

This diner is just a 10 minute drive from the strip. We went for breakfast twice in a week it was that good! Everybody made us feel very welcome and the food was great. Be warned the portions are very generous. We even got a blakbeary pie and a bears paw Danish to take away. Highly recommended.

After a long flight to arrive in Las Vegas mid-morning, we found this Black Bear Diner on trip advisor, and having had a very good experience in Reno at BBD, we tried the LV version and were pleased. My wife had their original pancakes and I had cinnamon roll french toast, and both were very tasty. Prompt service and convenient... More
