Generous potions, good prices and that home-style feel permeates Black Bear. The wait staff has a good rhythm to bringing food and friendly conversation.

We loved the Black Bear Diner for breakfast. Although a little more expensive than some breakfasts, it certainly was worth it. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home away from home. Right on Route 97.

We've stopped many times at the Diners in both Redmond and Bend. This trip we stopped by for a quick breakfast. It delivered that quality. We found, as always, prompt and courteous service but the meals were a bit disappointing. Over the years it has been a fun place for our kids (bears in the diner chairs, general bear theme)... More

I come here about once a month or when I have friends coming to Bend. The meals are cooked well, and we get fast service. Do wish they would rotate their music though !

We decided to try the breakfast here. And we are very happy that we did. Service and food were excellent. A very good value for the money. Will definitely be back when we return to Bend.

The food at this restaurant was good and the restaurant was very clean. The employees were friendly and personable. The price was a little high compared to what I'm used to paying, but it was a good experience.

We decided on Black Bear Diner after 2 other places in Bend had long wait times. Our waitress was very friendly, fast and efficient. Our food was good. Hash browns we're a little greasy and coffee tasted strange.

A lot of people like it but I'm not one of them...I had the spinach chicken salad...it was drowned in the Italian dressing and the chicken was dry and not even warm. My friend had a burger and asked for bacon, the waitress asked how many slices, he replied 2, she wrote it down, and it came without bacon...he kept... More

Thanks for letting us know! I feel badly that the manager on duty was not made aware of your displeasure. Service and Food are both guaranteed - if not great, we will make it right for you!
