What a great find...great food, service and fun atmosphere

Based upon other Trip Advisor recommendations, we tried this for dinner before going to a show at the Coral Springs Theatre. We will be back! The food was great. We both tried the French Dip...the beef was very tender and well prepared. Loved their drink and beer selections. They gave us samples... read more

I moved to CS 5 years ago and tried BBBC then, to my disappointment I was not happy with the food or the service. I went there again for my birthday last night and was again disappointed with the service and the food. The food is what you expect at a standard chain restaurant, like Darden or Bloomin Brands.

I really really liked their grits and bacon. The quiche was good too. Nice place to go with friends for brunch.

We just had a family dinner at Big Bear. Making the reservation was a bit difficult as only the manager could make it. They had to take a message and call me back the next day. So that wasn't great but everything was set up on time. We had a lovely dinner for 17 people. Our wait staff was excellent... More

One of the best places to eat and hang out in Coral Springs. I never had poor service or bad tasting food. They are always busy but what do you expect when it's one of the top restaurants in Coral Springs.

While several people I know, eat here from time to time, once was enough for me. My wife and I sat at the bar and ordered lunch. My wife ordered fried shrimp and my meal was something else of no consequence. When the meal arrived my wife began eating her shrimp and discovered a long hair fried into the breading... More

I go here about once per month. It's usually very good! They have some excellent dishes and some excellent brewed beers. Atmosphere is cool. Not too quiet and not too loud.

Great food, great beer! What more can you ask for? When we lived in Coral Springs, we ate here on a weekly basis... And now that we live in Ft Lauderdale, we make a point of coming back every month or so. I'm still a bit upset that they removed the fish tacos from their menu a few years ago,... More
