Friendly, cozy and renamed/remodeled Crestline Cafe. Super breakfast with more than ample food cooked perfectly as ordered. We had made the ride up from the OC and were happy to find this place that was everything we'd hoped it would be. Bathrooms were clean too....More

It is now Crestline Cafe. It is excellent. see my other review. Billy Bears was old and Tried. Crestline Cafe has new décor and food is FABOULOUS. They used to be up the hill in Top Town. So glad they moved near Lake Gregory location.

The food and service was average. I would of like if they asked to see my room key so we could have gotten a 10% discount on our bill as a good faith move.

Billy Bear's is closed and no longer in business. The Crestline Café is remodeling the facility and will moved there soon. This will be a big improvement and give the Crestline Café a much bigger restaurant.

My husband and I had grilled chicken salads. The greens were crunchy, the chicken was seasoned and grilled perfectly. A great salad in every way.

Had a good sandwich and husband had steak. You can tell the cook took pride in his meals he served. Waitress was pleasant and manager friendly. Good for a quick affordable bite in a pretty well maintained atmosphere. Could use a little updating.

Ordered an omelet with hash browns and toast. Food was more cafeteria style than sit down restaurant. Food was of low quality but service was acceptable. Looking forward to new ownership as the restaurant has been sold.
