Stopped in for breakfast meeting this morning, food dependably above average, eaten at quite a few Black Bears, and this is the best. Portions are large with good quality and good service. Fish Tacos and Pot Roast are both great choices for lunch or dinner.

It's a good place for having coffee and desserts but surelly the most impressive thing are the milkshakes.

Black Bear Diner has good food, fast service and huge portions. They serve breakfast 24 hours a day. We stopped by at dinner time, our first time eating there. I had a California Omelette. Husband had Sausage and Eggs with biscuits and gravy. The Biscuits were huge. He ordered two but one would have been plenty. He couldn't eat it... More

First the owner and staff are so very nice. I love to eat at Black Bear as they give you a chance to pick your portion sizes which is AWESOME. Not with everything, but most things. The food is always good and FRESH. The Albacore Tuna Sandwich is so yummy....well everything is. Chicken Fried Steak...YUM. Just give it a try.

My husband and I have been here twice. The first time was for breakfast. They were very busy and the food was just OK. Mine was so cold that I had to ask them to heat it up. The second time we went for dinner. I had the meat loaf and my husband had the steak. The food again is... More

The diner has a gigantic menu but you might as well stop reading at the cheeseburger salad because it is amazing. Quick service, large portions, good food, fair prices.
