Good meal excellent value

We had lunch at Big Bear: appetizers were tasty, especially the burratta and the cheese with a honey topic. The hamburgers were huge but delicious. The sweet potatoes fries were very good. The service was friendly and efficient

Worth the wait! A great variety of food served here, great place to celebrate special occasions. Innovate dishes that could please even the healthiest of eaters. And of course, great beer and drinks. This is a local gem and I know of many who travel from far away just to eat here. It is a little pricey, but so worth... More

The Kobe burger (brie, onions, red pepper mayo) was perfectly cooked and accompanied by a side of sweet potato fries. My companion had the ribs which were excellent. Even the side of cole slaw was wonderful. The service was efficient and friendly. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

We have been here a few times. We love the cauliflower purée. Their steak sandwich is awesome. Great beer too. Their pub burger with Brie is fantastic also.

I've lived in this town for 30 years. It's consistently good food and atmosphere. Coral Springs has every chain and many many unique restaurants. Big Bear won't disappoint.

At 9:30p the restaurant was still bustling with guests and very busy. We went there for a late night dinner. Wait time was only 30min. I ordered the Turkey Meatloaf dinner which I thought lacked flavor even with the cranberry relish. To accompany my meal, I had the house light ale, which was good. My husband enjoyed his fish and...

It was just ok. Too pricey ! Wait staff was just average. No one to brag about. Went there once, went another time to be fair and honestly do not care to go back even if I had a great coupon. Sorry but being honest!! Never ordered the soup bowl but have heard it is outrageous!

My wife and I recently visited the Fort Lauderdale area and decided to try some of the local breweries. We decided on Big Bear one night for dinner and drinks. The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice and rustic. The food was great. The beer was good....but the selection reminded me of something along the lines of a BJ's Brewhouse.... More

This restaurant has been in the area for years so I pretty much get forced to eat there by a relative or friend at least once a year and if you don't like change this is the place for you. Same menu, basically, and same beer choices from the in-house brewery for what must be decades and I have never... More
