While we were in Reno for a week, we dined at the "Black Bear" three times. The portions are huge, so be ready to leave food on your plate or be prepared to take a 'bear bag' of it home with you.

Black Bear diners are located all over the mid-west states. We have eaten there in numerous locations and have always been happy with the food and service. It is ''diner food'', with generous portions, well cooked, and served by friendly staff. This location did not disappoint.

Katie, the waitress went above and beyond in helping me change my order around to fit with in my guide lines of my diet. Super gal. Food was great and even big so I had left overs for the next day. Been here twice and I live out of state and great both times.

We've eaten here several times for breakfast, lunch & dinner. The serving sizes are enormous and the food is tasty and delicious. The service is always friendly and accommodating. It would be hard to beat the value at Black Bear.

If you're staying at the Peppermill just go up Virginia street for a great breakfast at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend it.

Black Bear Diner in Reno NV is a cozy restaurant with a home style menu. I ordered their taco salad and it was not just big, it was huge. It could have fed 3 people. The other 5 people in our group liked their meal so much we went back the next night. Good food. Great desserts.

Hostess said restaurant closed at 9 when it is posted opened until 10. Not sure what the reason was, but I won't be back.
