This restaurant is pricey for what we ate. The pasta I had was super bland not $15 worth. The beer cheese soup however was delicious. The inside was very warm and cozy.

Greeted at the door by a gracious and smiling hostess. It is frequently difficult to find a place with delicious food and table service that allows dogs. Here we were welcomed on the patio and our 10 pound Fido was offered water. The food was delicious - bread tasted freshly made and the sweet potato fries were the best I... More

Atmosphere was nice; promptly seated and our order taken. Our salads were served, the leaves were wilted; the cucumbers were totally dried out. After bringing this to our waitress' attention, she said that she would let the chef know that there was a problem, but didn't offer to replace the salads. Dinner arrived, but we had to ask for the... More

Delicious dinner! I had the Pork Tenderloin, my husband had a Ribeye steak. Both were cooked perfect. Flavorful and tender. They even provided a chocolate cake for us to share for our anniversary! I would recommend this place.

We find this place on yelp and it's great! We love the friendly service and the the bread and soup was awesome! Pasta was a little bite salty, steak is huge! Over all it's a pretty good place pretty sure we will come back for the next time and leave some space for desert!

This place is a true gem. We recently bought our home in Big Bear and ventured out to explore places to entertain family and associates. The young tall hostess was a breath of fresh air and seated us promptly with a smile. The server was a delight with several great suggestions. The soup is definitely homemade. The pasta is to...

My go to place for good service, affordable wine and good service. I like salmon and they do it well. The side dishes frequently come with out of this world sauces and a bottle of wine here doesn't break the bank. Probably the best dinning in all of Big Bear.
