The people are always kind and helpful with the little one. It's a great place to eat with family or friends. Fun place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The prices are comparable to how great the food is. It's always a great time.

Food was great but the portions are large !!! We ordered the half sizes which works good unless you are really really hungry.

We love most Black Bear Diners, this one met all of our expectations! We have been to one and we won't go back to it. We will go back to this one in Sparks when we are in the area.

Visited for breakfast, good food, and good service. Large generous portions for your value. Clean restaurants and large gift shop with 'bear' items. Good place to stop if you want comfort food and hungry.

If you're seeking elegant dining, this is not the place for you. It has a rustic, casual ambiance, where the focus is on comfort food. I took my family there for breakfast and was satisfied with the quality of the food and the service. I...More

We usually get there for mid morning breakfast on Sunday. If you wait until lunchtime you will have a 15-30 minute wait. Breakfast is way too much food. Perhaps share someone! Pies and desserts are fantastic. Service very good.
