“Consistent”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I went to the Black Bear Diner in Madras and enjoyed my meal enough to try our local Black Bear Diner. The portions were still very generous, the food tasty and the pricing reasonable. I had the 7-grain pancakes (very yummy) and my husband had a burger. He felt they put too many grilled onions on it but enjoyed it nonetheless. We would return again.

“Big portions of Good food”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Certainly not gourmet... the usual selection of pancakes and egg dishes but the portions are big and they are consistently good. Clean and fair priced. Our elderly neighbor woman thinks the Black Bear is her favorite place for a night out. Great place for a family get together. Affordable and no one leaves hungry. Menu has plenty of selection to find something all throughout the day.

“Hit or Miss With This One”
Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

We love Black Bear Diner and always go on road trips to Bend or California. Unfortunately the Beaverton location lacks the quality of the other restaurants. I have had cold sausage (ice cold on the inside) uncooked eggs, and microwaved buscuts one day, delicious pancakes and sausage the next time. Drop by because you are hungry not looking for great food. Biscuts on Jenkins is a better option.

“Lowering of standards”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We have really enjoyed dining at Black Bear Diners and this one is certainly one of the great ones. In my opinion, corporate headquarters has lowered the quality of some of their condiments and is getting into what I would refer to as deceptive advertising on their menus. Additionally, when calling Corporate about this, I was told “Tough”. That’s about all they had to say about it except they admitted it was their doing. We’re looking for a better place to dine while traveling now.
