Black Bear is always a favorite for us. We have eaten breakfast and lunch in different establishments and they have all been the same. Good food. Nice people. Fast and clean. I just can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. Great place.

While visiting Bend we tried some of the top reviewed restaurants. When we were ready to head home at 6:00 am Saturday morning, we went to Black Bear Diner for breakfast. It was located close to our hotel. Our waitress, who's name we wish we'd gotten, was wonderful. She was spot on with the coffee and taking our order. We... More

Was staying across the road at a hotel and were super tired, so we chose to walk across the street for an easy meal. Walked in and there were 8 other people standing there. We had 3, so 4 parties all together. The waitress would not even look at the parties as she walked by 3 or 4 times, then... More

Generous potions, good prices and that home-style feel permeates Black Bear. The wait staff has a good rhythm to bringing food and friendly conversation.

We loved the Black Bear Diner for breakfast. Although a little more expensive than some breakfasts, it certainly was worth it. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home away from home. Right on Route 97.

We've stopped many times at the Diners in both Redmond and Bend. This trip we stopped by for a quick breakfast. It delivered that quality. We found, as always, prompt and courteous service but the meals were a bit disappointing. Over the years it has been a fun place for our kids (bears in the diner chairs, general bear theme)... More

I come here about once a month or when I have friends coming to Bend. The meals are cooked well, and we get fast service. Do wish they would rotate their music though !

We decided to try the breakfast here. And we are very happy that we did. Service and food were excellent. A very good value for the money. Will definitely be back when we return to Bend.

The food at this restaurant was good and the restaurant was very clean. The employees were friendly and personable. The price was a little high compared to what I'm used to paying, but it was a good experience.
