Generous portions, good food and friendly service make this a nice place for a family meal. Everyone at our table had breakfast for dinner and was very satisfied. Next time I want to try one of the huge bear-claws in the pastry case--they look amazing!

I ate at the Black Bear Diner for lunch today. The food was unremarkable and reminded me of a sub-par Cracker Barrel. The food was average diner type food on par with Denny's or Perkins. The place was filled with over-weight old folks who care more about being fed quantity than dining on good food. The lunch I ordered was not necessarily big portions and the salad consisted largely of iceberg lettuce.

The food at Black Bear is fine, nothing special. But the menu is huge and the portions are large. There's something for everyone with emphasis on traditional, down-home fare: steak, pot roast, meat loaf, turkey and gravy, BBQ ribs, pot pies.... And you can get many platters in smaller sizes. I won't go to Black Bear for a gourmet meal but for a big old fashioned meal at a reasonable price, I'll occasionally be back.
