This place was okay. Our server was friendly and very prompt. The menu is really typical of restaurants of this type. I always figure that a sandwich is the best bet. They have bottled beer but no draft. Black Bear Diner is a short walk...More

As expected with chain, good food and great portions. Pancakes, eggs, etc., all good. Service was very good. Ambiance and black bear theme fun, especially for young ones. This location very convenient to I-5, plenty parking.

When traveling through out California, Oregon & Nevada. I try to make it a point to eat at Black Bear Diner. I think I have made it a bucket list to try all of them 😉 You can never go wrong with so many choices....More

The staff is friendly enough, but not customer savvy. For really the best choice for a "clean" restaurant, the staff acted like they were over worked. For large party, expect to keep reminding them for water, coffee, etc. Check glasses, silverware and dishes for cleanliness!

We often google Black Bear Diners when in CA and have learned to arrive hungry. We both had their special and were not disappointed. Fresh fruit, great omelet and a huge biscuit. Great food.

Yes there is! When you are in the diner, you will be handed a separate menu with kids activities on it. If you look our menu up online, go into the menu and then cubs section - you will see it in another format.
