OK, so I could barely bear the bear schtick upon arrival here (you'll be groaning over all the references), but that all faded away quickly when the food arrived. The chicken and waffles selection brought the best fried chicken breast I've ever had -- and...More

When one goes to Black Bear Diner, he or she'd better bring along a hefty appetite. Not only is the food delicious, but the portions are generous. The manager told us that, if the restaurant has the ingredients, they'll make anything the customers want. I...More

Good Food / Decently Priced / Comfort Food / Mix and Match to make your meal healthy - like replace the rice with Salad - replace the Potatoes with Fruit etc. Great place for larger number of people to meet and fellowship

We were in Milpitas for a family function. This diner was recommended by our son. It has big portions and the price is good.

The food and service here were about what I've come to expect at other BBD's - friendly service and good food in large quantities. Recommended if you don't mind a raucous atmosphere when large families are present with screaming children, like it was today.

We love their food. Especially their corned beef and pancakes. What we love most is their service though. Dee Dee made our day! She is the absolute best. Their food is great but she is what will keep us coming back. Also their habanero sauce.
