This restaurant is a great place. The portions are large and the selections are very good. They make a lot of the food from scratch. The homemade biscuits are very large and delicious. The eggs come with a side and biscuit or toast. The pancakes are good. The coffee, however, is horrible. I got a taste and didn't want anymore.... More

My wife and I are both small town folks and love the wayback machine feel of Black Bear Diner. We have enjoyed this micro-chain in other towns, but it was our first time to this particular café. Enthusiastic waitress; good food; and a bear laden atmosphere my wife loves.

Looking for a good breakfast that is not from a fast food restaurant with a drive through. This is the place for you. Bacon was thick and the sausage was homemade. Generous portions sent us away with a doggie bag. They had the best coffee we had all week. The decor included bears everywhere, which proved to be interesting.

Had breakfast here this morning and already planning a return trip. Greeted immediately upon entering the restaurant and then quickly seated by our server. Comfortable atmosphere and to digress, there was ample parking available. We each ordered a 2 egg breakfast with the fruit option. My husband got the bacon which was thick, smoky and perfectly cooked! I opted for... More

Black Bear Diner is an excellent place for breakfast. I used to go there 1-2 times a month when I lived in Las Vegas; now I can only visit when on vacation. My most recent visit was in the first week of October, and they continue to provide wonderful food with pleasant service and at a fair price. I always... More

Always been a fan of this place for some good food. Went for lunch today around 1 p.m. with 2 friends. The waitress seemed very busy but she very nicely kept telling us she would be right back between ordering drinks, delivering drinks, ordering food, etc. The food was okay but we definitely missed the wow factor we remembered from...

Had pineapple pancakes with ham and egg. Great food. Not too far from the strip but a great out of the way place to eat.

Another spot for my birthday trip. It wasn't far from our resort and the menus are very original. We had a very short wait and the food was very good. The portions are HUGE so you may be able to share. Our only complaint was that the service was a bit slow. We noticed our server was waiting on half... More

Great food, albeit on the higher side, for being miles away from the strip. Server was busy, but very good.

As I write this review I note it has been four years since we were last here. The food and service is still excellent. However, it did not seem as popular this time. Perhaps it was that we were having a late breakfast on a weekday. You can't go wrong here. It is a shame it is not within walking... More
