When staying at the Indian Lodge, which I always do in Ft. Davis, the Black Bear is a great choice because it is on site. It is good, not spectacular but I don't think their budget warrants a 5 star chef but a good cook....More

Stopped in for their breakfast buffet. It was wonderful! Very fresh make a difference. Wonderful fruits, tasty sausage and thick bacon, good coffee, and nice veggie and sausage egg frittatas.

We've eaten here several times in the last 10 years and this time it was below average. The buffet was very limited and the quality of food wasn't great. Staff was friendly but not very attentive.

Aside the from visiting our daughter, going to the Black Bear buffet is the next best reason to visit this beautiful area of Texas. Why? The $13.95 Adult ($9.95 children 12 under) cost includes a sumptuous buffet, an entire table of delectable desserts AND your...More

We stopped in for a quick bite and were impressed with the service and the quality and quantity of food. A limited menu at lunch; consider where you are. Grilled cheese was tasty and huge. Chicken fried chicken sandwich was big and delicious. Not many...More

The service here was impressive... just one waitress seemed to take care of 5 or 6 tables all on her own. She even made my husband a salad that wasn't on the menu. We had the fish which was really good... only complaint was that...More
