“Very good breakfast value”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We had dinner at a Black Bear in Redding, CA last year and it was good comfort diner food. Today we had breakfast at the BB in Sequim, WA. For $8.99 I got the Volcano; three tasty pancakes, two eggs, two BIG sausages, and two slices of thick bacon. That's a good deal and it was good. Two waitresses took care of us. They were friendly, kept the water glasses and coffee mugs full, and our food came quickly. We'd go to BB again for breakfast, lunch, or dinner as I am a fan of diner comfort food at a reasonable price.

“Excellent value dining experience”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

My wife, and my sister, and mi wife's sister had a Wonderful meal and great evening at the Black Bear Diner. They have a good selection on the menu. The prices are very reasonable, but the size of the portions for the price paid make this establishment an excellent value. The wonderful staff made the experience just that much more enjoyable.

“We won't be returning”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

We were told this was a great place to eat. Our food tasted like a reheated frozen meal and our waitress was in la-la land. We almost left but decided to stick it out since we heard the food was good...it wasn't.

“HUGE portions, good food, home-cooked taste, EXCELLENT KIDS MEALS”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Finally made it here for lunch with the family. The daily special was only $6.99 for a French dip and fries, I had a Cobb Salad, which was large enough to feed a large black bear, it was huge! The turkey on the salad was excellent, tasted like Thanksgiving carved turkey, bleu cheese dressing tasted very homemade too. The kids meals were an excellent deal at only about $5 each, large portions, very tasty. The kids loved the mashed potatoes and gravy (also tasted very home made), plus they got an ice cream sundae with their meal, the ice cream was excellent. Nice atmosphere, we liked all the carved bears, very homey. I would recommend this restaurant for a comfy home-style American meal.

“Good food and HUGE portions”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

My husband loved this place and it was right next door to our hotel. The servings are huge and they serve their entire menu all day. My husband was excited to have a burger for breakfast. We also went one night just for dessert and both the bread pudding and banana cream pie were great but too big for one person to eat.
