It's great to visit the Original Black Bear Diner - Mt Shasta and to see it keep the great service, food selection and prices. I have been to many Black Bear Diners, Mt Shasta location has always been my favorite. First visit here was in the 1970's. Great to visit again

We had been up to Bunney Flats to see Mt Shasta, which seemed to have disappeared (it was raining and very low cloud). Passed Black Bear Diner so decided to call in for lunch. Had a great meal and excellent service. Our waiter was very helpful and advised my husband that the sandwich he picked has a very hot sauce.... More

I first found out about this diner when I lived in Torrance, CA and found out as I was up here in Mt. Shasta, last June 2015, that this is the 1st ORGINAL Black Bear Diner that was established!

Nice diner, right off I-5. Food is good and portions are hefty. Service can be slow at times. Really a good stop for breakfast.

We have eaten at Black Bear before for breakfast. Was great before and probably better now. Generous portions, good service, and great food.

Great place to eat. Except in the summer time. The flies get inside and they are so annoying! It is commen in the valley, so it's not Black Bear's fault. They have tried many things. This last summer I noticed a new ultra violet light in the entrance. HOpe the helped!

No matter where we travel, stopping at local Black Bear Diners is the way to go! A welcoming staff, great food breakfast, lunch & dinner with generous servings at affordable prices can't be beat. This original Diner has an amazing view of Mt. Shasta! Breakfast: amazing menu offerings served all day. Really wanted to try the Pineapple Upside Down pancakes.... More

Waitresses are always friendly. Food is always plentiful. I like their breakfasts best: numerous scrambles, omelettes, benedicts, pancake options. Always more than I can eat.

I like the new twists they give to standard family meals. They give you BIG portions, but you can order smaller portions if you don't like wasting food.
