Old School food... clean place to grab a peaceful bite served by friendly people.

Had a good sandwich and husband had steak. You can tell the cook took pride in his meals he served. Waitress was pleasant and manager friendly. Good for a quick affordable bite in a pretty well maintained atmosphere. Could use a little updating.

My husband and I had grilled chicken salads. The greens were crunchy, the chicken was seasoned and grilled perfectly. A great salad in every way.

Ordered an omelet with hash browns and toast. Food was more cafeteria style than sit down restaurant. Food was of low quality but service was acceptable. Looking forward to new ownership as the restaurant has been sold.

This is a fixture in Crestline. The owner, Yolanda is a wonderful, friendly lady who makes you feel at home. Try the Cobb Salad. It's loaded with chicken and is really big. Nice waitresses and lots of teddy bears!

This is a diner is a small town, the food is decent, but it could be much better. They could expand their menu to include more creative faires such as breakfast tacos and burritos, fruitier waffles, pancakes, and crepes... The pancakes are good, but having buttermilk, and other full grain options would be great. The service is excellent.. The people... More

We came in for brunch during a motorcycle tour of the rim of the world. There were 20+ people in our group and were quickly seated in. The staff were very accommodating and ensured that everyone were taken care of. The food came in quickly and ensured that the coffee were always hot and topped off. Overall, the staff were... More

We've been here a few times when visiting the Crestline area. Seemed to be a family-friendly place with all the stuffed bears around. Unfortunately that's the best thing about this place! Our last visit here will definitely be our last! Food was terrible, some of our food actually tasted spoiled! Service was terrible. It wasn't even busy but our waitress... More

My husband and I have been visiting Crestline and the surrounding mountain towns for years and we've ducked into Billy Bear's a few times for a meal. It was always a fairly typical "family" restaurant and while we never had any complaints, the meals we had there weren't terribly memorable. Until the other day. We stopped in for a late-ish...

I used to live in Crestline Ca and will be moving back soon. Billy Bears was OK, could be alot better. Food is average, Bills Villager and some other joints are better. Cleanliness is average, service is OK, needs a make over and a cleaner and better menu.

Aloha everyone! Ok, this place is an example where reality exceeds (or at least meets) expectations. And that isn't bad at all. So, this was a surprising good restaurant choice. My son and I ate here on while on our late Aug/early Sept section hike (Section C) of the Pacific Crest Trail. (To explain, we had a rental car, and... More
