We were disappointed to learn at check-in that it was closed for dinner the night we were there...but it was open for breakfast the next morning! Very good breakfast....usual items prepared very well. Small breakfast crowd on a Thursday morning.

Stopped here while in the park, had a great view while we had our burgers. They were good and so was the service. Nothing bad to say. If your looking for a fancy place this is not it but it's not a cheap dive either....More

Located within Davis Mountains State Park, the Black Bear Restaurant is part of Indian Lodge and has excellent breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with a great Sunday buffet. The staff is very friendly and the food is really good. Prices are moderate and service is quick.

Before leaving camp site, we stopped for breakfast. Food was good but service was a little slow due to a little early for the busy season. A beautiful lodge built By CCC in the 30's.

We've eaten here several times and it's kind of hit and miss. Sometimes good, sometimes okay. This past week we went for breakfast. There were six of us, and two were small children. It was spring break, so I was expecting they would be busy,...More

The food is nothing to write home about, it's basically cafeteria food. But, one thing I will say is that it's the only place to get a meal near Fort Davis on a Saturday night, that isn't going to cost you 30 to 40 bucks...More

Didn't attempt to use wifi...I just used my regular 4g Verizon connection which is very spotty depending on where you are in the mountains.
