Did you a newly established restaurant has come into the City of Torrance? Named the Black Bear Diner, it is a very unique diner indeed. With menus resembling newspapers from decades ago, a jukebox, several stuffed bears all over the place and pretty paintings it is a very cozy place to dine.
The waitstaff treat you like old friends, the food is considered “quality comfort food” which includes breakfast (served all day), lunch and dinner items. The portions are very large and entrees can be shared. Even the “Cub’s Menu” for kids has very generous portions.
The diner has an old-fashioned vibe and it is very pleasant to have a meal there. It is a relaxing atmosphere with cheerful people all around. Sometimes music is played on the jukebox, and people sway to it. What can I say? You feel at home there.
Every restaurant has a twelve foot black bear carving. There are multiple bear statues/sculptures outside of the restaurant as well as murals. Black Bear Diner was founded by Laurie and Bob Manley in 1994. It is a restaurant chain. There are fifty-six locations in nine states including California, Arizona, Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa, Utah, and Washington. The Torrance restaurant, located on Hawthrone Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway, has replaced the Bob’s Big Boy that was in the same location.
It is a great experience to dine there. It really isn’t just eating-it’s dining. There really is a difference between the two. Let the diner live on!
