I have been to multiple Black Bear Diners and I generally like most of them but there is just something off with this location. I hope they can turn this one around. The staff was nice.

Arriving early was certain to accommodate our large group, and would have if the managers and host had not put smaller groups at their only large group tables. We ended up waiting while they rearranged their dining room, while apologizing for their mistake. The server...More

We had a large group so we added to their frustration. The waitstaff were patient but there were order problems. Overall a product you know like some of the fast food places.

Our little town was once known as Lake City, for Utah Lake, but the river that runs through it won out and our name changed to American Fork in 1860. Locals call it AF for short. No matter what you call it, one thing is certain, it’s a pretty place to be, at the foot of Mount Timpanogos. Our diner is a convenient jog off Exit 278, just a few turns east of the I15. It’s a convenient sit-down choice where you can enjoy a full meal with a taste of home.
