We always eat at this restaurant on our Reno visits. This time the quality of the food seemed to drop. Also the recuperation and service was lacking. It looks like they were cutting corner with the quality of their breakfast meats.

Service was great, food was also very good. Large selection. The restaurant looks a little dated inside and could use some remodeling, but you soon forget about the surroundings.

Breakfast with family. Great food south great service. Steak and eggs was cooked perfectly. Denver omelet was scrumptious. Prices are great, quantities are huge, bring your appetite or share!

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.
