The staff was friendly, and the food was good. We ate there for dinner and breakfast, and they were both good.

Black bear has many locations all of which are always busy but consistent. I opt for the chicken fried steak which then came with hash browns and biscuits and gravy. Mega man breakfast here as I couldn't finish it. Coffee wasn't too bitter and they got me out and back on the road again quickly. Good vibes.

Black Bear is our go-to when friends and family are in town. It's good for larger groups as well as small families and couples. The menu is large and breakfast is served all day, so everyone can get what they want. My favorite is the fish tacos, my husband enjoys the chick fried steak. We had a problem one time... More

The food is excellent. I have had all 3 meals there at some point and each has a great selection to choose from and all were cooked perfectly. Sometimes I have had to wait 15 mins or so to be seated but the lobby had trinkets to look at to keep you busy.

Almost always crowded, the food is well worth the wait. Large portions and good service. Atmosphere is a little noisy, so not suitable for a romantic interlude, background music usually classic rock (which I love), small"bear" store featuring exclusive products, friendly environment and ample parking. I would rate higher except for the wait time, but I do highly recommend.

Great Homestyle breakfast, coffee served with a smile. A lot of locals eat here regularly so that's a good sign

I have eaten in several Blackbear diners, but my recent experience in their Redding, Ca location was not up to par. Both the food and the service were mediocore at best.

We stop when ever we see a Black Bear diner. Always friendly service. Food is consistently good and huge selection on the menu. No matter what you are in the mood for, you will find it! And conveniently located off the freeway! Will return!

Black Bear Diners are pretty reliable. I have found that the food is relatively consistent from restaurant to restaurant. It's usually better than an "average" coffee shop, but don't expect fine dining. My egg white omelet was good. My spouse's pancakes were also good. Coffee = good. But, I admit to having a weakness for their biscuits. Always get a... More
