Description: Murray's Saloon & Eatery has been serving the community of Big Bear Lake...
Murray's Saloon & Eatery has been serving the community of Big Bear Lake for over 20 years, and is a local's favorite. Murray's is famous for its Karaoke (7 nights a week) where you can find individuals from all walks of life (locals, bikers, skiers, hikers) any hour of the day, 365 days a year. Mike and Raelene are the passionate owners and operators of Murray's Saloon & Eatery. The Kostiuks took ownership of Murray's in May of 2009. Over the years they have made significant and much needed updates and improvements. Both the interior and exterior of the bar have been updated, as well as a new and varied menu of home cooked style eats, almost all made from scratch. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night along with daily specials. You'll find many items named for team members and locals who have inspired these over the top creations (see the Russell Burger). Oh, and if you don't find what you want on the menu, just tell the kitchen what you're craving and they'll happily prepare it for you. Our latest investment is the total redesign and rebuild of our draft beer system. The new system includes 12 handles total, 10 of which are dedicated to local and regional craft brews, as well as standout Belgian and German offerings. In addition, Murray's carries domestic, import and craft beers in bottle. Interested in wine? Murray's has fine California Reds and Whites along with cocktails and shots you won't find anywhere else. We also Cater. Interested in having your Wedding in Big Bear, or maybe a Company picnic? Contact us for more information. No party too small, or too big for us! We invite you to visit us on your next trip to Big Bear Lake. You won't be disappointed with the food, drink or hospitality at Big Bear's only 'Five Star Hole in the Wall.'

Fun place

The food was actually pretty good for a bar. Our server was Allison, she's also one of the bartenders and she was great. Very friendly. My husband and I both got burgers with fries. The burgers were big and filling and had very good buns. There were a lot of locals coming in, so it had a very... read more

Been here several times with friends or family and great service each time by the lovely Rita. Yes,it is a typical dive bar but the patrons and staff are friendly and their burgers are huge and delicious!

If you like music and very loud music, this place is for you. Even though my hubby and I didn't quite enjoy their karaoke singing there (because of too loud), we still had a good time there. The food is very good, price is very good, but just a little bit slow. Here is not a

We were visiting old friends who had recently relocated to Big Bear Lake as year-round residents and they said that Murray's was on of their favorites. Your first impression when entering Murray's is that this, in fact, a BAR. Once you get past this you find that they serve great food. The variety and quality of their food makes this... More

It's in an alley in the Village and doesn't look like much but its definitely worth a visit. Nice staff and really great deals on food! I have never been there in the evening but even in the day time the place is festive. Its certainly a locals spot but everyone including the doorman are cool. The booze is free... More

So walking in... it's a bar. It looks like a bar and there is bar seating. Probably not the most ideal setting for families, but the food is too good to pass up. We went here before the dinner rush, around 7 pm. Had the best onion rings, seared ahi tuna, and cheese sticks ever. Great service, everyone was so... More

A large group of us spent s good few evenings here during our recent ski trip. Some of our party had come to take advantage of the local adaptive ski school, run by USARC, and Murrays and its patrons were totally accepting of some of our party's limited mobility and speech. Everyone was lovely, and helpful. The drinks and food... More

Gotta try Murrey's....delicious, inexpensive bar food, where you can kick back, have fun and if you are brave, go to the stage and sing your heart out. Best servers, good drinks, and the best steak in town, served with fries and homemade coleslaw, big enough for two. Fish tacos and poppers are great too. Casual atmosphere, pool table...what more could... More

Stopped into this divey little spot on a busy Saturday night. First impressions, the drunk guy outside almost ran us off but oh so glad we stuck around! The food was ON POINT. I mean big, awesome, real portions. Not really the dive bar food we were expecting. I ordered the Jalapeno Poppers thinking it would be your typical deep... More
