We are fans of Black Bear Diner as the menu has a lot to choose from and the food is always good. This Black Bear did not disappoint. Our waiter, Caleb, was excellent. He was attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and had a fun sense of humor. The salads are gigantic and very fresh. We actually chose to stay in... More

Our large group of 12 (3 Families) stopped for breakfast on our way to Oregon. We were received by a pleasant hostess/waitress who sat us down right away. The service was good and the food was plentiful and delicious. We all had the sweetest, freshly-squeezed orange juice of our lives, and that's a lot to say for native Floridians, lol.... More

The staff at Black Bear do not care that you are there. Whether it's sitting at the bar or a booth their competency in ignoring you is just unparalleled. I once waited two hours to be served. Never again.

We experienced friendly service. The salad greens were fresh. My husband enjoyed the prime rib special. We could not eat all the food. The decor is cute. Very pleasant meal!

My wife & I were tooling down I-5 and wanted to find a good place to eat. Being from "back East" we were not familiar with the Black Bear Diner chain of eateries "out West." We cautiously thought we would "give it a try." Good golly, were we soooo happy we did just that. First, the dozens of bears decorating... More

On the way back from Sacramento, we stopped for lunch. Service was okay, thankfully the food was good with good portions to match the prices. While not inexpensive, the prices reflect present pricing in the area. The speed of food delivery was average at best. Overall a good experience.

We stopped for lunch on June 13, experienced very slow service, which is uncommon for other Black Bear diners. Food was standard BBD food. Just an average experience when compared against other Black Bear Diners

My fiancé had the Volcano Breakfast (pancakes, sausage, bacon and eggs). I had the Classic 2-Egg Combo (w/potatoes and bacon). We both loved our meals (and each others). Our server, Kameron, was pretty good as well. Would return here in a heartbeat!
