“$100 Hamburger Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

My husband and I frequently fly guests into this restaurant for lunch. We have never been disappointed. The burgers and the club sandwiches are always delicious. We have always had excellent service, prices are average. Weather can be cool during winter and early spring seasons--bring a light jacket if you plan on eating outsite.

“A LITTLE OUT OF THE WAY BUT WORTH THE VISIT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

The Barnstorm Cafe at the Big Bear City Airport is not on the well traveled path for most tourists but all of us locals know it to be a great place for breakfast or lunch with decent prices. My wife and I have had several menu items from their breakfast and lunch menu and have never been disappointed. The dinner menu is somewhat different and the food can be hit and miss depending on what you are expecting so you should check out their dinner menu items first before visiting for dinner. It is a small place and service can be a little slow on a busy day however, it is still worth a visit if you are in the Big Bear Valley.

“Nice dinner, good service and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2011

We went with a party of 6 and it is NY weekend. We got a nice sized table even though the restaurant was busy. The serve wonderful warm bread and herb butter plus fresh veggies and dip gratis for the table. We ordered drinks to start....fast and large full wine glasses. We ordered a variety of dishes...brugers, tilapia, seared ahi, and pasta...all were suberb and cooked perfectly. Service was fast and the waitress was very pleasant. I need to mention this is NOT in Big Bear Lake...but in Big Bear City....in the airport. Very good parking and easy access right off of Big Bear Blvd. I would receommend this highly....especially as away from the large crowds of the Village area. Great view of the planes coming and going and Gold Mountain as well. Nice place.
