We took our daughter and her two small sons here for lunch, mid-week. The waitress was attentive, but didn't hover. She was very patient with the boys' questions. The food was hot and plentiful. I don't feel that several-year-old (especially negative) reviews should stay on a business's site. We will eat there again next time we're in the Rohnert Park area.
We ate at this place 2 times and both times we were both satisfied. We ordered Steak and eggs for breakfast and it was big enough for 2 people. It was reasonably price and it was very good. We also did not have to wait too long for our food. Coffee was hot, just the way we like it.
The place was packed with customers lined up out the door, so I had high hopes for a great late Sunday breakfast. Carved wooden bears, photos of grizzlies catching spawning salmon in their mouth, plenty of wooden furnishings provide a mountain lodge feel. The menus are cleverly printed on the inside of a decades-old newspaper and breakfast, lunch & dinner seemed to be available.
The waiter recommended the homemade fruit filled bear claw pastries. I'm a fan of bear claws so no arm twisting was necessary. The claws were nicely served warm - but were excruciatingly sweet - the 'fruit' filling consisted of a huge dollop of sickening sweet berry flavored jelly - lacking the tartness of an actual berry or two to balance out all that sugar. One bite was enough. I ordered coffee - it was served without cream or sugar. When I requested cream the waiter served the only cream available - those little plastic cups that sit on the table of truck stop diners and Denny's caliber restaurants across America - and contain little or no cream - just a long list of chemicals, preservatives, various types of sugars - composed so as to 'keep' without refrigeration for awhile (and designed to survive a nuclear blast. no doubt) The stack of pancakes was - hmm, what's the opposite of light and fluffly? Heavy, doughy, just plain yech-y. The 'over medium' eggs were served cool & hard. I can't even recall what else was ordered at our table - we had a bite or two of each dish, paid & left. Considering the number of people packing the place, Black Bear has a loyal following . . . gee, I wonder what they order for breakfast. . . . .
Okay, first off, .watch out for vehicles crashing through into this restaurant, as happened back in August. The driver of the errant vehicle was choking on a sandwich from Arby's down the street and lost control. Slam! Chair and tables flying everywhere. Other diners looked up, assessed the situation, then went back to eating. The restaurant was red tagged briefly due to the damage.
The food is okay at Black Bear, the service can be good or bad. Still, it's the most popular restaurant in Rohnert Park. Most of the patrons seem overweight and resemble big bears - like the name of the diner.
My family & I ate there and we were very pleased with all the choices on the menu. The servings are huge two could easily share a dinner. It tasted delicious and it was really decorated in bears inside. We tried it again for breakfast and was pleasently surprised again. I wish we had one near our home town!
Bring your appetite because the portions are huge. The menu offers a lot of choices and I have not had a bad meal yet. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is friendly. Great place to enjoy a meal. Be prepared to take home half of your meal though just because the servings are bigger than most people can eat in 1 sitting.
