Just not good. Greasy food, eggs cooked wrong, spotty service plate filled with bad hash browns. Will not go back.

This is a great breakfast place but for lunch or dinner the classic cheeseburger basket and a hand made milk shake is hard to beat. The shake comes with the steel mixing cup so it's like getting an extra shake. The burger and fries are a good size that's not as overly large as the other meals. One complaint is... More

Our family loves BBD and we want to make eating there a family tradition but their food is just not consistent. It's either average or poor (except desserts and breakfast food, they're always delicious). We had the chicken parmesan for dinner and oh boy... super dry, cold and a little smelly to be honest. For a plate that's close to... More

I had the pot roast and not only was it good and moderately priced, but there was more than I could eat....and I ordered from the senior/smaller portion menu! The veggies were cooked just right.

This a new location for Black Bear, so everything was clean and shiny. It was early for the dinner crowd, so we were seated rather quickly. I had the meatloaf special with mashed potatoes and gravy. It was really good. And of course, I had to have some Peach cobbler to take home. Really, Really Good!!

Nothing special about this diner. Food was mediocre at best. I have no idea how they stay in business.

This restaurants menu is HUGE! Their portions are HUGE! If you keep in mind that this is a diner and not a Steakhouse or a Seafood Restaurant, and order diner food you might like this place. My husband likes to eat the breakfast. He thinks it is great. He also loved the Chicken Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes. I have... More

The orange juice is sooo good! Fresh squeezed and delicious. If you have a small appetite, better plan on sharing a meal because they are big enough to feed a hungry bear.

Always a great place to eat. Fast, friendly, great value. Saturdays are usually crowded. Sunday morning is not bad as long as it's not a long weekend.

Had breakfast here on a Tuesday morning, and the restaurant was not crowded at all. The breakfast scrambles ( I had the Shasta Scramble) were very generous, enough for two. The food and coffee was excellent, service was prompt, and I can't think of a better way to start off the day.
