I've been to enough Black Bear Diners now to comfortably say this one is perfectly acceptable. The food was good, and the service was very efficient.

I thought it very nice the food was great and the service was awesome I only gave it 4 stars because my husband wan not as happy with his chicken avocado club sandwich he said it was dry and lacked flavor but I loved mine Double Bacon B.L.A.S.T.

We tried the Black Bear diner for the first time and all in our group liked it. It is not diet food. Two had turkey and mashed potatoes with green beans and two had meatloaf with mixed veggies and a salad. The food was good and the service was very good. We would all go back again.

After reading some of the previous posts, I was afraid to eat here ! No problem! Hot turkey plate: huge, turkey moist, mashed potatoes good, veggies OK/tasty, cranberry sauce: not enough. Husband: pot roast: quite good. Server woman: cheerful, attentive without hovering (cheerfully brought more cranberry sauce) Manager even stopped by to make sure everything was fine. Restroom: clean. After... More

The Diner is always nice and warm in the winter and cool in the summer you can always count on it. Each meal is more than enough to eat, I always have leftovers. If you wanting breakfast the skillet meals are the best you will ever eat. My favorite lunch order is hamburger and fries. I ordered a bowl of... More

Coming back to our Nor Cal home, thought we would stop for lunch. Well we must have stopped at a hunters convention. The place was packed. The wait was terrible and people began to leave after being seated. Not all their fault, even though they seemed understaffed. We were seated almost immediately because wife and I generally asked for counter.... More

Black Bear dinners are a chain restaurant and always have good food and good service. Our waitress was very attentive, our food came quickly and was reasonably priced.

Having enjoyed our dinners here a year ago, we opted to eat here again. We took our jackets in case it was cold like last time. It was cool, but not nearly like before. We had fast service in a good atmosphere and a courteous waitress. The vegetable soup was excellent, corn bread very good, but crumbly. The salmon was... More
