We had a wonderful breakfast. Short wait to be seated. Little longer wait for food than usual but well worth it when it arrived. Would recommend.

A group of us went for breakfast. The pancake combo is absolutely delicious. The pancakes are huge, fluffy and have a great flavor. The sausage links were okay. The over medium eggs I ordered were a tad bit runny. Our server had a GREAT attitude....More

We don't live on the West Coast, so we didn't know about Black Bear Diner chain. We were very surprised about the good food, good service, nice variety. Also the restaurant is very nice decorated.

The restaurant offers a full menu, home style cooking with generous portions. Service is relatively quick and the restaurant is clean. The steak I had tended to be little tough, with light flavor and the corn was way over cooked.

If you want some home-cooked comfort food this is the place. I get their southern scramble almost every time. It's my favorite dish there. It's home-made biscuits and gravy, topped with a sausage patty and eggs served with a side of red potatoes. Simply delicious!...More

The food was excellent!! The mini pies are delicious and they serve the whole menu all day. Staff was very friendly. Great place for the whole family. Don't forget to mention it's your birthday.
