The location has since been remodeled and is now Chad's Sports Tavern, which was formerly in the village.

Nice place to check out if you're in town. Food is pretty average, everything comes out quick and the staff is pretty friendly. Would give it another shot in the future.

Very cute restaurant. Had breakfast there which was very good..fit for the mountain air. Bought a mug. Good food for a reasonable price. In the village so you can walk off your meal shopping!

If you want to go to a local place, with good burgers, this is your place. Kid friendly, although didn't let my kid pick up things from the floor since it was not the cleanest. Staff really nice and food was great. Make sure you bring cash

We originally planned to have breakfast elsewhere, but it was the slow season and many restaurants were closed certain days. So after trying to find someplace to have breakfast, we found this place.

We eat here at least twice during our stay in Big Bear for the Big Bear Lake Antique Classic Car show each August. Good food, good service, friendly staff and owner.

This location used to be an IHOP restaurant and recently switched to a private name. The food was ok and the service was decent. However, the whole experience was nothing to write home about. It is far from the worst restaurant location in the Big Bear Valley however, there definitely better places to eat.
