“Everything in Big Bear is Big..after a visit you won't eat for the rest of the day!!!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We have visited the Grizzly Manor many times and it never disappoints. Real laid back and friendly place. Don't eat before you go.....

Breakfast menu served all day; portions huge so sharing is an option. The short stack bluberry panacakes a real MUST, the best in town.

We were lucky, it was mid week and no waiting time, service was very good, a cafe with real American feeling, the walls are filled with guest comments, photo's various currency notes from around the world.

“Home Cooked Flavor!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We've been going to big bear lake on a regular basis for almost 4 years now. This place is always packed - I mean packed! And we just don't wake up early enough to avoid the line. So this weekend, we finally decided we are going to have breakfast there and wait. It was a 30 minute wait. We were there around 10:00 am.

Note, for those who are waiting, you can go in and get a cup of coffee. So you can be drinking your coffee while waiting outside. This place is very small, hence, no place to wait but on the benches outside. Needed that first cup of coffee while waiting.

Food is the "home cooked" style. I had waffle with strawberries/whipped cream. I mean good size spread of whipped cream. The waffle was light and great.

My husband had the "sissy boy". Pancake with bacon and egg. He was opting for the one with 2 pancakes. Note, pancake is as big as the plate. Huge! It was soft. So one pancake is more than sufficient.

This is a good place to eat. The restaurant is very small. But I think the decor (stickers everywhere), the size, the layout -- give it a different ambiance. So worth eating at least to try it out.

Was it worth the wait? Wellll.... glad that I did it once so I know why people are waiting in line. If the line wasn't long, wouldn't think twice of coming in. But if I have to wait that long, there are other good places in Big Bear that will provide great breakfast.

You should do it at least once in Big Bear, if you are not in a rush. For 2 of us, bill was around $26 without tip.

By far the best hash browns we have ever eaten. The wait staff is friendly and fast. Definitely worth the wait!
