Good diner. Kind of a mix between that classic diner look and feel and a western motif restaurant. The menu was good but not as good as the east coast diners I frequent. They do serve breakfast all day. Which, is what I had as I had been traveling all day. Ham and eggs, toast and a "sweat cream" waffle.... More

Every time we travel to Reno, we make the obligatory either breakfast or dinner stop at the Black Bear. Love their food. Is just simple good good. They even have a lighter menu for when your counting calories.

I loved the Tri-tip and the portions are enough for two. Great meal for teenagers and awesome desserts. Easy to park too!

Everything about this restaurant was good. The ambiance and decor was nice and the staff was very good and friendly. The blue cheese dressing was on point and the tri-tip and ribs were very good. Desert looked good but I was full. The only two knocks were that the steak my daughter ordered well was under cooked and they didn't... More

We had 3 breakfasts while in Reno. This was by far the best. The serving sizes are HUGE and the food is very high quality. I had the corned beef hash for breakfast. It's simply awesome. It came with eggs, a biscuit, and tasty hashbrowns. My husband had strawberry pancakes. Again, a huge serving with a side of whipped cream... More
