The food was really good, the pancakes are huge. I had the biscuits and gravy and eggs and it was good. My kids had the pancakes and loved them. They probably could have halved it. The place is kind of small, so you may have to wait in a line. The people that worked here were very nice.

Grizzly Manor Cafe has big portions & good food. There can be a wait even during the week, but worth it. This is a local favorite, but visitors are welcome. The staff here is friendly. I like the walls with all the notes, stickers, & quotes. This is a CASH ONLY restaurant so get your Mula from the bank prior... More

Don't tell anyone else this place exists!!! It's a tiny shack on Big Bear Blvd that all the locals & online readers want to go to for Breakfast & Lunch. We were there at 930 on a Monday morning & had to wait 15 minutes. Seating inside is elbow to elbow with locals drifting in & out to pick up... More

Went on a Sunday morning, already crowded at 730 AM, there was a half hour wait. The waffles and French toast were both very good, generous portions with eggs and meat, but average price in $10-12 range. Service very friendly and fast. Good coffee.

We wandered in on a Sunday morning because nothing in the 'village' looked appealing. Wow! Our meal at Grizzly Manor Cafe exceeded all expectations. Fun, casual, local atmosphere. Quick service and DELICIOUS food. Of note: gravy on chicken fried steak was terrific. Sausage patty was homemade, well spiced and perfectly cooked. Waffle was the best I've had in the United...

So I had some expectations coming here for brekky, especially reading reviews over in Australia before coming over and having the same experience as other reviews. To be honest, I'm speechless! It's everything great and good and more that each review has posted. The service was great, the girls were always funny quirky and yet so friendly. The food was... More

This tiny house/cafe serves large quantities of food either for breakfast or lunch. This is where the regulars hang out for a hearty meal. They are open daily until 2 PM. There always seems to be a wait. The place is one of a kind, plastered with stickers, notes, business cards, dollar bills, you name it, on the walls. There... More

Didn't know it was such a well regarded restaurant in the region but after the great breakfast and friendly chats with both staff and customers realized why it was. The food is fresh and the cook is awesome. Say hi to Craig, the regular at the counter with the cowboy hat if you see him.

Great place for the family and I to eat at post-hike. The service was good, food was awesome, portions were HUGE! It's not for those looking for a healthy option but variety is the spice of life, right? I got a Smilin' Otis and it rocked. All the other meals looked just as good. Cool vibe also BTW. Bring some...
