Located within Davis Mountains State Park, the Black Bear Restaurant is part of Indian Lodge and has excellent breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with a great Sunday buffet. The staff is very friendly and the food is really good. Prices are moderate and service is quick.

Before leaving camp site, we stopped for breakfast. Food was good but service was a little slow due to a little early for the busy season. A beautiful lodge built By CCC in the 30's.

Indian Lodge is a quaint historic gem in the Davis Mountains. Sadly, the meal at the Black Bear restaurant ranks as one of the worst we've had in years. I visited the Lodge and restaurant in the early 1990s and loved it. I recall a...More

Had read bad reviews on Trip Advisor, so almost didn't stop in while at Davis Mts. Park. Had friendly, good service and tasty, generous, freshly made sandwiches for lunch. Only bad part was having to make a choice of one item.

The convenience of the restaurant to the Indian Lodge is why we ate here several times on our trip. The service is slow as they are clearly under staffed. Many times the tables were not cleared of dirty dishes from the previous diner. Breakfast is...More
