Went here for breakfast on a Monday after October Fest Weekend. Saw all kinds of ads about this place being the boom. We wrote our name down and the cook told us to wait ouside to be called. There was a couple empty but dirty tables so you would think it would be a couple minute wait. Close to 15... More

I stopped here for breakfast once I heard it was awesome. They have a sign noting it is the #1 Breakfast in America (according to the Travel Channel). As a result, there is always a huge line in front. I went in, left my name, and waited. They have seats/free coffee for waiting folks. The staff was super cool. They... More

Had breakfast two mornings in a row. Only place I know to get SOS. Incredible pancakes, omelets. Well worth the wait if you catch them during the rush.

This cafe is not for everyone, you have to have a REALLY BIG APPETITE and a sense of humor. Staff- The waitresses are (mostly) tatted and pierced; the owner is surly and if he knows you, will subject you to ridicule, in good humor, over your order (careful if you order the "Sissy Boy"); and sometimes the wait can be...

Always a fun time when the owner is there. Food is good and lots of it. My favorite is the Belgian waffle with strawberries which is fluffy and light, except for the whipping cream ;). Owner keeps you laughing with his very witty banter. Don't miss out.

We were told this has a very high rating and you could wait hours to get seated. We went on a weekday so we didn't wait. It is only open for breakfast and lunch. If you like Hugh portions this is up your alley. Personally I did't find it worth my time. The food wasn't that good and the service... More

This is one of my new favorite places in Big Bear. It's small but the food is BIG and they make you feel like a part of their family. The pancakes are huge and cover the entire plate. I like the half brown blob with extra bacon. The bacon Is excellent. So remember, very small and usually a wait but... More

Don't get us wrong, the food was good, but it tasted like typical greasy spoon dinner food. We got here early on a Sunday morning so we didn't have to wait long. The chef was also our waiter and he was working hard. The coffee and atmosphere was very enjoyable, but after reading all the stellar reviews, we were disappointed... More

Upon reading reviews we tried this funky little resturant. The resturant is very small and cramped so be prepared for a 10-15 minute wait time. We came around 11 a.m. and breakfast was still being served. My hubby ordered an omlet with ham and cheese and I ordered the blueberry pancakes. Both orders arrived promptly and the pancakes were massive.... More

Our visit to Grizzly Manor started out with about a half an hour wait. I had read most of the reviews on trip advisor so we decided to go for breakfast. The portions are huge and the food is average. Nothing out of the ordinary. Service was good. Would I go again? Maybe, if the wait was shorter. If you... More
