I sometimes come to this restaurant whenever I didn't have time to eat breakfast and I would say that the food here is satisfactory. Adding to that, the staff were nice and prompt in their services. If you want a nice breakfast or brunch due...More

Ordered the southern fried chicken, which consisted of a piece of chicken breast, severely deep fried in a not very southern or tasty breadcrumb coating. Not authentic or expected. The chef should taste his own food and think hard. I am from the UK, and...More

Love this restaurant, usually I shy away from chains, but this is my exception. Got fish and chips and they were brought quickly and were perfectly cooked and fresh. Staff was super friendly and welcoming. Prices are a little high, but food is worth it

If you want Meatloaf, Mac and Cheese, or Meatballs rather than things with less familiar names you'll like Black Bear Diner. Nothing spicy or adventurous, just large portions of simple food.

You know what you'll get at BBD- consistently good food and lots of it. Our waiter was great. Great thing about this location is that it's not in the heart of downtown Davis, so even with it being move-in weekend at UCD (love you sweetheart)...More

I was looking for a diner close to my daughter's place and found this. When we got here, we realized that it's the same restaurant that we ate at when we went to Seattle and which we really enjoyed. Portions are huge at this restaurant....More
