Seriously delicious. I’ve never posted about an omelette anywhere but this is exceptional. Grilled artichoke, portabello, tomato, sautéed garlic spinach and feta! Sweet staff as well.

A nice getaway from the crowded places in Big Bear Village. Friendly service. Dog friendly patio. Competently prepared food, with especially good steaks. Nice scenic drive around the lake. Combine with the Castle Rock Hike toward sunset for a nice evening.

When we want to have a quiet breakfast and enjoy a more upscale menu...this is palce to go. With trout and eggs, loaded breakfast burritto, and specials like bread pudding french toast you are going to be surprised.

We ate lunch here twice, and each time it was very good. The only problem was that there was too much food. At one lunch we split a Cobb salad, and one salad was more than enough for two people. I don't know about dinner,...More

We ate here recently for lunch. The food was great and very fresh. We all ordered different sandwiches and none of us were disappointed. We would definitely dine here again!
