The atmosphere, service and all the awesome memories I have of eating here when I lived here I will never forget. Every time we travel back to Coral Springs its a must that we go to Big Bear. My favorite is the Beer Cheese Soup in the bread bowl....WE LOVE IT HERE!

A friend and I decided to grab a bite together prior to attending a meeting. I ordered a quinoa and chicken salad and a beer and the check was over $20! Though the salad was tasty the portion was average. The beer was good but $6 for a glass of draft??? Maybe I'm old fashioned but with tax and tip... More

I especially going there for breakfast or brunch (if you will). They have a brie plate that is soooo darn good. It comes with fruit, roasted garlic still in the shell, soft french bread and this beautiful piece of warm brie cheese wrapped in crispy filo dough. Yummy!!

Upon bringing our drinks ($3 for a glass of bubbly water which is free in most similiar type restaurants in town) we were immediately asked what we wanted for dinner.Servers need to understand there is a...

Had the Blueberry ale(so-so) and the dark stout-very good. Appetizers were the mussels & spinach dip. Mains were the bacon burger, prime rib, raw tuna and ribs. Service was good and food was excellent.
