Big Bear needs more places like this! Awesome atmosphere, cool staff, good drinks and great food. Tried this place for our first time while we were up at the lake and had a great time. They have an awesome little bar area and a stage for live music, our service the entire time was excellent and it made for a great evening before heading home. Will be back next time!

My new favorite place in Big Bear! Great atmosphere and awesome food. Perfect for big groups or a quiet dinner. There are two separate dining rooms and a stage for live entertainment. Our service was great the whole night and our food arrived rather quickly. We split the BBQ ribs and hangover pizza and would certainly order them again. The menu is pretty big and I' m looking forward to trying something new next time. Definitely worth trying if you have never been.

The menu has a decent variety, but Prime Rib is only available on Friday/Saturday/Sunday.
Food was cooked and prepared well, and the portions are generous.
Service was below average. The waitress did her job, but she was cold and distant. There was no personal touch to her delivery, she didn't inquire if we would like to see a dessert menu. Then after our main course was cleared, the hostess dropped the bill instead of the waitress.
Overall the food was good, not great, but the service left a lot to be desired.
The next time we are in Big Bear, we will probably eat elsewhere.

My friends and I keep coming back here every time we make a weekend trip up to Big Bear. Definitely a great place to grab drinks at night, the food is great, but the atmosphere is what keeps us coming back. We usually just split a bunch of appetizers but if I had to recommend something it would definitely be their burgers, the blue burger is one of the best i've ever had!

Tried this place for the first time about a week ago. I was very impressed with the food, we went with a big group and ended up having a really good time. The appetizers are really good, especially the nachos. Our server was great, she was on top of it the whole time and we really didn't have any complaints. Probably going to head back there this weekend for the playoffs and maybe check out some of the live music they have.
