Great Customer Service!

The food is decent but the staff was warm, welcoming and attentive. It was even late in the day and you would have thought we were the first customers of the day. We spoke with some locals originally from IL who told us it was always like that.

I've been to several Black Bear Diners... this was my fifth one! They never disappoint. The staff was friendly and the food was awesome! This particular Black Bear Diner was built recently and only a few years old. Yet it had the same charm as the one next to Mt. Shasta. Highly recommend for a diner of this style and... More

Although this is a chain restaurant, everything is done locally and it needs help. Service was friendly but overwhelmed. Food is american comfort but with cheap ingredients served either over-cooked or under-cooked. There are finer restaurants in Sequim I would go to first. This location survives by virtue of its proximity to the hotel next door.

Bill, We are sorry that you didn't have an excellent experience at our restaurant. It is one of the most popular restaurants in town and at times very busy. Again we are sorry about any slow service you experienced, but our food isn't fast as we prepare almost everything we serve from scratch. Our prep chef begins very early each... More

This Black Bear franchise is the worst I've been to. The food was cold and it took forever. The staff seemed to be lost and unprofessional. The building and decor is lovely, but I wouldn't stop here again.

We are very sorry you didn't have an excellent experience at our restaurant. Your food should not have been cold. It should have been served to you piping hot and prepared to perfection, which is what we strive for in every meal we serve. Please try us again! More

Best atmosphere! Kids loved looking at all the bear accents and the coy swimming in the large pond outside. The service was quick and our waitress was very attentive to our children. The portions were enormous and prices were very fair. I only wished we lived closer.

We've eaten at several Black Bear Diners, in three states. This one is just as neat and clean, with just as many cute carved bears everywhere, but the service and food seemed to be not quite as good. Our dinners were "okay". I had a taco salad, which was average. I can't remember what my husband had, but he said... More

My family ate here when we stayed at the holiday inn next door. The food was fresh and hot. I would definitely go back and have the breakfast again.
