“Fab food, wonderful service, amazing family deals!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Tuesday is their kids eat free day. The portions are very generous, loads of fruit too. The kids loved everything and our meals were exactly what we wanted. They even have a sundae for each child at the end. Pick your own ice cream and toppings. Top notch restaurant. And 10% military discount!

“A little pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went here our second morning in the area, our first morning having eaten at Denny's. I'm not a huge Denny's fan and I'm trying to eat a little healthier, but Black Bear was not much better than Denny's despite charging 50%-100% more for the same items. Long story short, hit Denny's up for breakfast and order their "Fit Fare" items.

“Joyfully delicious!”

We ate at the Black Bear Diner for a late lunch with the family; we all loved the food, and the selection was awesome. Wonderfully priced Children's Menu, and friendly staff.

“Meets Expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Great breakfast restaurant - meets all expectations. Their desire to provide you the meal you desire is paramount - don't worry about the menu - just tell them what you want.
