The food left a lot to be desired, we had both undercooked and over cooked fish. My beer had lemon in it when lemon actually goes very poorly with that style of beer. Our server did well though.
Service is bad - food is cold and not very good - poorly managed - When you try to talk to them about it they blame it on you or don’t seem to understand what the problem is.Eat somewhere else! The Black Bear Diner Mothership should abandon this franchise.
This is our favorite restaurant and squirm, we love Applebees, we love the atmosphere we love the staff we love the food.
I swear that other review must have been written by an owner. This place is NONE of those things.BLAND and expensive. I couldn't see anything interesting on the menu, read it over and over and finally settled on something. Usually a place can justify $20-30 dishes by making them taste really amazing. But the fish I had was horrid. It was like eating a mushy pancake.Another couple came in after us, looked at the prices, and left. I wish we had done the same. $$$
Black Bear Diner was AWFUL! It was so cold there, we sat there with our coats on. My dad had the hot open meatloaf sandwich w/ mashed potatoes and gravy. The gravy was cold and so thick it looked like pudding. The meatloaf was awful, bits of green and orange "things" in it. The bread was stale and the food was lukewarm. Mom and I had cheeseburgers and they fell apart as we were eating them. The waitress was so sweet, but she can't help the food. $11 for a really bad meatloaf sandwich? If you want large portions of crappy food, give Black Bear a try. Otherwise, go to McDonalds, the food is better.
Absolutely delicious food and great service! The seafood is divine, the steaks are charbroiled to perfection, and the portions are generous. The cocktail lounge, which is a cool gathering place full of friendly local color, also supports the full menu. Do yourself a favor and visit this "culinary paradise!"
