If you like fresh squeezed orange juice and corned beef hash, you'll love the Back Bear Diner. Great service.

Had an outstanding salad, although portions are huge, much more than one person could or should eat at one meal. It was fresh, delicious and all that a salad should be. I would look forward to going again if I planned to be in the area.

I've eaten at Black Bear diners all over Northern California and loved taking out-of-town guests to them for the experience. In the past, the wait staff have said some very uncool things that made it obvious that they had a thing against the LGBTQ community. When I complained and asked for a manager, I found out she was the manager.... More
