are becoming our go-to place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner when we're on the road. We've been to four different ones and all seem to have the same menu and I kid you not, I think I like everything on there. At the Reno location I had the smaller portion of chicken fried steak and believe me, it was not... More

The Black Bear Restaurant in Reno is a must. The food is home-made. They do not use dehydrated potatoes, canned gravy or two-day old pre-baked breads and pastries. For those of us over 50, it is a "good old days" family atmosphere with something on the menu for everyone. Even the music is 50's and 60's. There are half-orders also,... More

When we travel we will always look for a Black Bear diner. The food is great, the service is great. We never leave hungry and this is no exception.

We have eaten before at this restaurant in Las Vegas, Nv. The food was as good in Reno as in Las Vegas. We went for breakfast only at both diners and the it was great! The portions are large, so beware if you are a light eater. They do a great job on the hash browns, eggs, country fried steak,... More

Stopped by here because nothing else looked or sounded good and the one in Sandy, Utah is very good. Food was very good, I had fish and chips and my son had chicken strips. plenty of food for the price. The place was pretty empty but it was late on a Monday night. I must say that our waitress was...

They give you a lot, and it's pretty tasty too! This is a chain restaurant, however, they do a good job and provide a lot of food for the dollar. Homey, bear-themed restaurant, very comfy and spacious inside. Fast service. Surprisingly good, flavorful food! We had breakfast. Very reasonable prices. An easy drive from downtown and casinos, worth the trip,... More

Came here with my parents and boyfriend before we had to go to the airport. Normally, we try to go to places that aren't chains and are a little more on the health-conscious side, but this was close and the 'rents wanted to try it. Our server was nice and helpful, regardless of the fact that she had already been... More

I've eaten at several Black Bear Diners in Nevada and Oregon and there pretty consistent. Go hungry because the portions are HUGE.

The Black Bear restaurant is a short walk from the Peppermill. We ate there 9/16/2014, because we were no longer going to spend any more money at the Peppermill. We walked to the Black Bear Diner and ordered breakfast. They serve large portions of food and you will not go away from there hungry. We've never had a bad meal... More
