Description: 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.'

Stopped by for a brew and song. The saloon has a karaoke stage which let's amateurs and experienced perform. The festive atmosphere made for a fun night. Didn't really eat much but they do have popcorn and peanuts to accompany your choice of draft. I had the tangerine beer on tap which was oddly good. The bar tender is very... More

We've had a house in Big Bear since last Spring, but this morning, we finally made it to Murray's. My husband and I went to Murray's for breakfast with a bunch of our new local friends. Here's the down low. Breakfast is delicious, enormous and an amazing value. They serve food until they run out, so if you're not here... More

What I wish I'd known before putting this place on my list of eateries was that this place is really loud. It's really not the type of place to go and have conversations. There's not a lot of tables available or they're close together. So maybe this is best suited for those who are in groups that want to do... More

Murray's is a sports bar with a local feel that we dug. It's a busy, happening place. We arrived early, so received some personal attention from the waitress before the crowd ascended and she seemed to carry the load. We ordered some tasty deep fried mushrooms (of course, everything tastes great when deep fried!) and beer and cider on tap.... More

We went into Murray's on a quiet night in Big Bear last Friday as per the suggestion of a local. I had heard that karaoke started around 9 or so, but it was in full swing when we walked in the door at 7:30pm. There is a decent sized bar and a few bar height tables. It was fairly crowded... More

WE wandered into Murray's one evening searching for comfort food and a drink. The place was packed so we sat at the one open table. AS we waited for a server we noticed that we were the only patrons over 35 and displayed no tattoos. There was a "Biker Babe Moma" whose ample chest was falling out of her too... More

Been living here in BB several months now and hadn't gotten to Murray's until the Wine Walk. Had some friends playing there, so spent a good part of the afternoon on into the evening. Coming from a family that has owned and run bars and restaurants, Murray's definitely had a few things goin' for it.Unfortunately, the service ended up being... More

I must admit, after reading reviews about this place, I was scared to pay it a visit. When my boyfriend and I arrived at the place, the music was loud. We were both a little hesitant on entering. "Do we enter, or should we head over to another place?" That was the question on both of our minds. We decided... More

Murray's has been a long standing saloon in Big Bear. Not too long ago the owner decided to also offer great food at great prices. He hit a home run. Bacon wrapped shrimp and a great rib eye are my personal favorites. Do not miss this place.
