We enjoyed this restaurant so much. Their food is very tasty. You can enjoy the flavor without much seasoning. The waitress was very nice and pleasant. Overall, it's beyond our expectation and we really loved it.

It was a beautiful sunny day when we stopped in for breakfast. It was crowded but worth the wait. Place is neat as a pin and the staff is very friendly. Service was fast and top notch and the food incredible. Portions were more than enough and the prices were reasonable. The view of the mountain was spectacular. If you... More

What a great place for late lunch, on our drive to Medford, Or. From the counter we could see all the food flying bye. We settled on the Turkey dinner and all the Thanksgiving sides. Great to share without going to sleep on the road. All the servers were great and we were well taken care of, we will be... More

The food is solid, the service is good, probably not worth risking going anywhere else in this area.

I've been to enough Black Bear Diners now to comfortably say this one is perfectly acceptable. The food was good, and the service was very efficient.

I thought it very nice the food was great and the service was awesome I only gave it 4 stars because my husband wan not as happy with his chicken avocado club sandwich he said it was dry and lacked flavor but I loved mine Double Bacon B.L.A.S.T.

We tried the Black Bear diner for the first time and all in our group liked it. It is not diet food. Two had turkey and mashed potatoes with green beans and two had meatloaf with mixed veggies and a salad. The food was good and the service was very good. We would all go back again.

Husband: pot roast: quite good. Server woman: cheerful, attentive without hovering (cheerfully brought more cranberry sauce) Manager even stopped by to make sure everything was fine. Restroom: clean. After... More

The Diner is always nice and warm in the winter and cool in the summer you can always count on it. Each meal is more than enough to eat, I always have leftovers. If you wanting breakfast the skillet meals are the best you will ever eat. My favorite lunch order is hamburger and fries. I ordered a bowl of... More
