The plate was heaped full of pot roast and potatoes. I was starving and only able to eat half. The food was great and good value for the money. It was my first time, but not my last, that's for sure.

We have eaten at a few Black Bear diners in our travels and traveling through this area, found the original place right off Highway 5. The people were very friendly and the food was very good.

The Black Bear Diner is just cozy and fun with good consistent diner food - and lots of it! A great place to get together for coffee, breakfast, and lunch and the very casual dinner.

Once again my wife chose the Black Bear DIner for consistently good and ample food. The service once again was excellent. The bacon is thick and cooked perfect. The hashbrown's are unusually good. We are never disappointed at a Black Bear Diner. The interesting thing about this one is that it is the original one after which all the others... More

This is where it all began for Black Bear. First of all, you can't beat the view of the mountain from the diner. My family loves their breakfasts. My fave is the chicken fried steak. Large servings, terrific service (although they are usually busy).

Went to the Diner on Friday afternoon before going out to Church camp. I wanted to be full just in case the food was sub par at camp. The all you can eat fish was quite a meal. Granted, it was white fish, but it was fried well and was very tasty. I had five pieces, which was more than... More

Great choices on the menu for all meals. Busy place which apparently serves visitors and locals alike. Service was good and prompt and a lot!!! Enjoyed seeing all the bear pictures, carvings etc. as we ate in this chain restaurant. Would certainly go back.
