The service and the staff were very good. Friendly and welcoming. The food: I had corned beef hash. 2 fried eggs and a biscuit. The plate was Cold, the Eggs were COLD the Biscuit was Hot. There were more chunks of potato in the hash than Corned Beef. I am only responding because I want The Black Bear Diner to succeed. There must be better training in the kitchen. I will try you again in a month or so. I hope the issues are resolved.
