“lots of food”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Nice and comfy, pretty crowded. Almost too much food and the price is good. Great tried and true waitresses!

“Great place, if you can get in”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

HUGE portions, good food, and reasonable prices, but it's very difficult to get a seat most days, especially weekends. I won't wait 20 to 30 minutes for a table.

“Love the volcano!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We use this place whenever out of town company comes as it is easy to visit with each other and get decent food. The servers are always super nice. I love the volcano and usually share it with one of the kids, that way we have everything we like 2 diff meats and eggs and pancakes!! Great breakfast food. Haven't tried the lunches yet.

“Great Early Bird Special”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I love a good breakfast. If you get here before 8:00AM, they have an early bird special. 2 eggs, two beacon (large), two sausages, and (a choice of 2 pancakes or hashbrowns). All for $4.99. They also have a great cornbeef hash. I have tried several of their omlettes and enjoyed them all. Large portions.Huge biscuts. Be prepared to wait if you get there after 9:30AM on the weekend. They will have free coffee, but a large crowd. We have a favorite waitress and she is a joy to see everytime time we visit with her big smile and great personality.

“Generous portions, well prepared, good service”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Any trip to Black Bear you'll find friendly service and well-prepared meals.This western chain features American, "country" food. As a vegetarian, I am somewhat challenged to find something on the menu that isn't breakfast. It would be prudent for them to offer some lower-fat and vegetarian options. That being said, I wouldn't miss their seasonal strawberry shortcake biscuit. It's so huge you need someone to share it, unless you make it your whole meal. Don't laugh, I've done that! If you're in the area, you should try Black Bear sometime.
