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

The food is awesome and the portions are unreal. Great service. There is usually a wait but well worth it.

Food was great, pancakes were huge! But so was everything else we ordered. I had the biscuits and gravy and loved them. Service was good and only waited 15 min to be seated. I would diffently come again.

Tiny restarant serving big meals. We really liked this place. We never went there for breakfast because there were too many people crowded asround the front door, but we stopped by early afternoon and didn't have to wait for a table. They serve breakfast for lunch so half our party (of 8) had amazing pancakes ( the bluberries were highly... More

We arrived at the restaurant around 8 am on a Sunday (July 4th weekend). It was already crowded as it opens fairly early. They told us about 20-30 minutes, but it was around a 45 minute wait. Honestly, it wasn't the hostesses fault, people just didn't get up. Anyway, the décor is retro. It feels like a diner from the... More
