The diner is located in the Overlake area of Redmond, on the North side of NE 24th ST. just a block East of the intersection of 148th and NE 24th. ST. in the same complex as the Overlake Safeway about a block South of the NE 148th Overpass of SR 520.

The Black Bear Diner is a great place for good old "eats", with portions large enough you will most likely need a doggy bag. Some of Jim's favorites include the French Dip, and the "Bigfoot Chicken Fried Steak" ( a real monster! ). There are steaks, ribs, classic sandwiches, and of course burgers. There's also lighter fair along with some fantastic salads. And get this, Breakfast is served all day long!
