A chain Diner that is not half bad

Well, the title says it all. A diner with all the diner staples. Good food at cheaper prices. Nice clean place with good service.

My cousin and I met here for lunch and to catch up on life. She had some kind of a cabbage salad that she raved about. I enjoyed my cheese omelet and fruit. The service was tops as was the "bear" atmosphere! Food was great! Hope to get back soon for another omelet!

My husband and I ate dinner recently and were very happy! Lots of food choices, including breakfast all day, good prices, great service, interesting old-timey decor and a REAL TREE in the middle of the restaurant with carved bear cubs in the branches and climbing the trunk!

Food was so second rate with high prices. Even after having it sent back! And the servers really could care less. I say this why? This was the 4th time we tried it, stretching over a 2 1/2 year period because we thought we'd give it time to improve, and it still has not. I'll cross the street to Country... More

This is a nice family restaurant that we found to be very flexible with good food at a good price. The children's meals were especially good, featuring nice steaks as a wonderful menu option. The staff was very helpful meeting the children's needs and making our visit a success. The decor of the Black Bear Diner isn't really that of... More

A good family place with lots of room and large quantities on your plate. Regular American fare....not fancy but hearty. Large variety of choices on the menu.

I was hesitant to stop here on my way back to Portland because the reviews seemed mixed. But it was on the way out of Redmond. The food is fine, average breakfast fare. I had the eggs and hash. Thier hash is good, not the nasty canned stuff but real corned beef and potatoes. The service is what I was... More

We've actually eaten here several times and we have never been less than pleased with the food and service here. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. They never fail to be awesome. The food is basic fare that tastes good every time. By basic I mean an American menu that is guaranteed to fill the bill of being... More

Nothing much to talk about here. OK food at times. Service is hit and miss. With all the other options in town your best bet is to keep on looking.
