“Great food....slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

This was our first visit to the Black Bear Inn restaurant during Restaurant Week at Lake Tahoe. We were very pleased with the food, enjoying everything we ordered from appetizer to dessert. The wine was wonderful, the Black Bear Inn's own label. But, the service was incredibly slow and inattentive. The restaurant is actually a small area within the lobby of the Inn. It did not feel like an intimate setting because people are coming and going to their rooms in the inn and walking through the lobby.
The food, not the setting, may bring us back during a high tourist time to try the service once again.
