Off the strip where the locals go

You will need a hire car or taxi to get there , but its worth it food and service at normal US prices in a welcoming atmosphere , we visited twice and had excellent meals .

I was in Vegas and not interested in high end dining, I used Trip Advisor to find the Black Bear Diner. Located off the strip, a car or taxi would be needed to get there.Was told about 80% of the customers are local. This is a California chain with about 50 stores. The menu is large with breakfast all day.... More

Met 5 client's here for breakfast on a Tuesday early am. The restaurant is located on a corner and has their own private parking. I heart the decor inside which had a mountain cabin feel to it - cozy and quaint. We were seated in a quiet corner which was perfect for a business meeting. After receiving our coffee and... More

I'm not a big breakfast lover, but I do love animals and this place is crawling with bears... mostly black ones! There's bear paws on the plates, the napkins, around the ceiling - I seriously love to go just for the atmosphere (plus they have Dr Pepper!) Their portions are more than generous, and I've never had a bad meal.... More

We discovered Black Bear in northern CA and we like the atmosphere and menu so much that we now seek them out whole traveling in the west. Great food, reasonable prices and wonderful service. Robert was very attentive and was very pleasant to visit with. Every Black Bear restaurant has been a great visit and this one was no exception.

All the food is homemade and the service was excellent and quick. We had the chicken pot pie and it was wonderful. The Pastrami sandwich was also good. Don't leave without trying thier homemade Berry Cobbler. Delicious!

It's hard to find a locally owned restaurant that brings back memories of the "good old days" in Vegas, but about 10 minutes drive west of the strip on Tropicana is a gem. This is big serving, down home cooking, complete with daily homemade pies. If you go away hungry, it's your own fault. Not the place to go if... More

Family style restaurant, menu selection is varied. Small portions available. Spacious dining area, tables not crowed. Easy parking, clean restrooms. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, this place rates with the best.

The food and service were excellent. Prices very fair. There is always a line because they have a very good following. Wish I would have saved room for the home made pie, the portions were on the large size. Will visit again on next visit to Vegas!
