While staying at the adjoining hotel (The Lodge at Big Bear), we ate breakfast every morning at this restaurant. We were quite satisfied with the food & service. The host/greeter, Matan, & our server, Jennifer, were friendly & provided excellent service. The all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet isn't all that extensive, but the basics are there: Pancakes or French toast (depending on... More

We went for a meal at Stillwells on our first night in the hotel as we had travelled for hours and were all too tired to go into town. On first appearances, we thought we'd hit the jackpot. The decor was lovely, and new. However, the food was pretty poor, Most of us ordered the pasta off the daily specials... More

We stayed at the Lodge, the hotel which this restaurant is in, and ate dinner here the night we arrived and the next two mornings (Saturday and Sunday). Pros: Good value for a hotel restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised by the prices and the "niceness" of the interior of the restaurant. The meals we ate were well-proportioned, and I thought...

I ate breakfast here today. Delicious omelette and fresh squeezed oj. I had room service tonight and had a delicious bowl of seafood chowder loaded with an amazing assortment of seafood in a delicious cream chowder. I also had a huge wedge salad with bacon and blue cheese that was as good as any I've ever had. I don't understand... More

My daughter thought this looked like a really nice place to eat because of the pond out front and the beautiful log style building. Never judge a place by the way it looks on the outside. The wait time was not bad but the service and the food left a lot to be desired. When the waiter took our order... More

Those that have read my other reviews, know I am very fair with my assessment of places. So with that in mind, let me tell you why you should avoid this place. First, let me start by saying the location of this restaurant was great. Just at the beginning of the Village Drive, and just off of Hwy 18. And... More

This restaurant used to be pretty good...now the food is fair and service terrible. My husband and I walked in...we were the only ones. Should of been a clue. Too many other places in Big Bear that are much better, Grizzly Manor for breakfast, Hacienda for Mexican and great food and service at the Peppercorn for dinner.I have learned lower... More

We came into Stillwell's after having seen online that they hosted a Sunday brunch. We were greeted by a very nice staff member who informed us that they no longer served the brunch because new management discontinued it, then quit and has not been reestablished. The restaurant was completely empty and we were told that it had been that way... More

Stopped by Stillwell's to grab appetizers before heading to the pool. I highly recommend the steak nachos and the buffalo wings!
