My favorite place for breakfast. I've had their giant burger and Tri-Tip on a French roll. Yummy. I've tried several other items and love their shakes and pies. The only drawback is the management needs to take some management courses. I've met some unhappy employees. The Black Bear in Madrass seems a lot better staffed and warmer. But the Redmond... More

We love Black Bear diners and were surprised to find this one empty at dinner time but the service is terrible and I am sure that is why. The waitress took about 15 minutes to come and take our order and after the food came (which was fine) she never came back. We had to go to other tables for... More

Thank you for letting us know Jen. I am sorry to hear that this was your experience at this location. The service you received was completely unacceptable and not a great reflection of the service we are known for. I feel badly that a manager on duty was not informed about the situation so they could have fixed the problem... More

Four of us each had wide range of meals, from breakfast, salad, sandwich & Dinner at one meal. Everything was tasty & filling. Service was good & priced well. We always come back every time we are in the area.

Went in at 12:30 on a Sunday. Got seated promptly, within a couple of minutes the server took our orders and brought our drinks. Waited 90 minutes for food (two burgers, tuna melt, chicken strip basket). The kitchen seemed to be having a lot of problems. The cook would put one plate at a time on the shelf to be... More

We decided to come here after having had good meals at the Black Bear in Grants Pass. This was totally opposite. We waited about 15 minutes to even be recognized as waiting and then were seated. There was about 15-20 staff members floating about. The place was full when we got there, so we were lucky to get a table.... More

We stopped in for lunch right at 12:30 and was surprised to see that the place was half empty. We were greeted & seated promptly. The waitress came by and within 10 minutes we had ordered. And then we waited. To amuse myself after 30 minutes we started listening to the conversations between the waitresses and the chef. We noticed... More

The Black Bear is my breakfast favorite in Redmond. The eggs are done right, the link sausages is very good and the omelets are fine. With toast or biscuit and fruit cup or hashed browns. All the condiments for coffee and food are already on the table. "Real Tabasco" available on request. For lunch the sandwiches are good and the... More
