My husband and I were celebrating an anniversary. The food and service were excellent. It’s refreshing to experience a Restaurant that doesn’t charge extra for salad bar, vegetables, etc. The only drawback was the stairs to the second floor.

Perfect medium rare w/vegetables. Nice selection on the salad bar. Surprise serving of cheesecake for an early bday celebration, the owner, staff and guests all sang “happy bday”! Cute “dancing & singing” bday cake was brought to the table, too. Neat rustic atmosphere, it’s reportedly...More

Historic Big Bear is alive at the Captain's Anchorage----complete with a ghost named George.The restaurant has been a tradition in Big Bear since 1946. Originally called the Sportsman's Tavern, the Captain's Anchorage has enjoyed visits by Hollywood celebrities, weathered fires, and has hosted gambling and the ghost of a former employee.Today, the rustic stone and log building invites guests to enjoy a good meal in a comfortable atmosphere. Enjoy cocktails and appetizers in the Andy Devine bar, or stay for dinner in the dining room. Every meal comes with the soup and salad bar, even the under $20.00 dinners.Visit the website for the menu and for more stories about the history of Big Bear and the Captain's Anchorage Restaurant.
