We had ordered fish tacos and 3 kids plates. It was very busy and our order took more than 45 minutes before we were served.

We’ve eaten as this restaurant off and on for a few years now and have never been disappointed. Off all the other big chain restaurants, this one is always the best. The review is about breakfast which was very good. The portions are not small, but not over the top. There is a good variety of items to choose from.... More

Black Bear Diners are our favorite place to stop to eat while traveling. The service is always excellent, the food is good, and the service is quick. They have menu items for "less" if the regular item appears too big. Comfort food, for sure!

Loved it! Big fan of the baked potatoes and beans! Loved the cornbread! And a good salad! I don't eat much meat... So can't say much about that. But my boyfriend loved the bbq pork ribs! Recommended to everyone!

Was here for dinner on a weekday night and the place was practically deserted. My salad came in minutes and the steak minutes after the salad. It was like the kitchen staff was bored and pounced on an order like a Tasmanian devil. Overall the food was average and the server was excellent.

If your hungry go here... The amount of food and quality is very good. The fresh squeezed orange juice is something else. Good assortment of items on the menu which looks like a newspaper. Friendly staff and good food.
