Reviewed February 15, 2010

Food was awesome, huge portions. Great place to stop before you hit the slopes. Get there early or you will have to wait.

“Food was really good and the prices were...”
Reviewed February 13, 2010

Food was really good and the prices were cheap. Spent about 20 bucks for two. Only issue was that they took forever to seat us and they took even longer to serve our food. Keep in mind that waiting area is outside so if you go in the winter, you'd better be warm! Again, food was delicious.

“Fun diner, great pancakes!”
Reviewed February 4, 2010

Just had a great breakfast and lots of fun at Grizzly Manor. Yes, the pancakes are huge and the chocolate pancake was the BEST I've ever had- and I LOVE pancakes. The bacon was just as we asked for- extra crispy. Everyone was very friendly and it did feel like a nice family gathering. Jayme- the owner- waited on us and told us to check out their facebook page his daughter just put together.

“Average breakfast......a little disappointed....”
Reviewed October 11, 2009

My wife and I make it up to Big Bear usually once a year. Last year we came to eat here because of the rave reviews but they were closed ( apparently the owner had gone fishing...no really.....) So this year they were finally open. It definitely is a "hole in the wall" building but as one other reviewer put it, "tough in cheek" attitude that the wait staff like to enhance.....our wait was over 30 minutes which isn't bad for a Sunday and once we were seated another 30 minutes for or food. We both ordered the Rudy Omellete and again found the food to be bland and just ok.....I mean probably could have gone to Denny's down the street for what I think a better breakfast. It's just average diner food. We also ordered a blueberry pancake.....again ok, their huge so be prepared. I guess people like the ambience in the place but the food is just ok. We probably wouldn't return. We've found other places in the Village with better breakfast.

“Best Breakfast in Town - No, Really!”
Reviewed October 9, 2009

Located right on Big Bear Blvd., this tiny restaurant is frequented by locals and tourists. Good home cooked food at reasonable prices. The place is small and gets really packed. Be prepared for a short wait at times. They are open for breakfast and lunch.
