This place really was a gem. The burgers were amazing. The staff was super friendly and atmosphere was just comfortable and welcoming. Would highly recommend for a night out, a lunch, or drinks on the town. No complaints of any kind!

This is probably one of only two options where to go out for a drink in Big bear. Fun staff and cheap drinks. Just your locals bar hangout.

Excellent food and a good price. Going to restaurants that locals go to in a resort area is always a good idea and Murray's is no different. Bacon cheeseburger was excellent and will fill up big eaters. A definite place to go!

Small dive bar with good reviews, which we like, so we decided to try it out. We went in on a slow weekday and the server told us to sit anywhere, so we took a seat and waited. And waited. We sat there for about ten minutes. There were two servers and they had a total of four tables between... More

After snowboarding all day we just wanted a super chill place to grab a few drinks and good food, with a fun atmosphere. Walked in and sat at the bar and were immediately greeted by the cutest, bubbliest bartender Allie. She was a hoot!! Eddie also helped us out and made me one of the best Micheladas I've had in...

OMG, on a tour of Big Bear from where we are staying our bus driver told us to check this place out as they serve great food. We read in our hotel book that if we showed our room key we would get a free beer. Very true, we each got 1. The russell burger and wild salmon was amazing.... More

Description
Murray's Saloon & Eatery has been serving the community of Big Bear Lake for over 20 years, and is a local's favorite. Murray's is famous for its Karaoke (7 nights a week) where you can find individuals from all walks of life (locals, bikers, skiers, hikers) any hour of the day, 365 days a year. Mike and Raelene are the passionate owners and operators of Murray's Saloon & Eatery. The Kostiuks took ownership of Murray's in May of 2009. Over the years they have made significant and much needed updates and improvements. Both the interior and exterior of the bar have been updated, as well as a new and varied menu of home cooked style eats, almost all made from scratch. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night along with daily specials. You'll find many items named for team members and locals who have inspired these over the top creations (see the Russell Burger). Oh, and if you don't find what you want on the menu, just tell the kitchen what you're craving and they'll happily prepare it for you. Our latest investment is the total redesign and rebuild of our draft beer system. The new system includes 12 handles total, 10 of which are dedicated to local and regional craft brews, as well as standout Belgian and German offerings. In addition, Murray's carries domestic, import and craft beers in bottle. Interested in wine? Murray's has fine California Reds and Whites along with cocktails and shots you won't find anywhere else. We also Cater. Interested in having your Wedding in Big Bear, or maybe a Company picnic? Contact us for more information. No party too small, or too big for us! We invite you to visit us on your next trip to Big Bear Lake. You won't be disappointed with the food, drink or hospitality at Big Bear's only 'Five Star Hole in the Wall.'
