The food is terrible. Specially the old ribs that are difficult to chew. The pizza is simple and tasteless. The staff was nice and very apologetic after we told that the 4 of us can not eat this food. I find hard to believe that this place has some good reviews. I really hope the owner will care for better quality. In mean time go to Peppercorn Grille close by

Finally a restaurant that makes me want to return over and over again. Great food and good prices for Big Bear. We have been twice and plan to return for a third time today.

We were excited to try this new restaurant after reading tbe reviews. We were a party of 6 for dinner on labor day weekend. We arrived for dinner at 7pm - with dinner arriving 90 minutes later - one person at a time. We were starving - with no rolls or anything to let us snack on while we waited.

Have never seen anything like this at a restaurant. The waitress told us that they had only one person in the kitchen cooking one dish at a time. By the time all of the meals were delivered - the earlier plates were ice cold. To make matters worse - the chicken in one of the pasta dishes was raw inside. After 90 minutes of waiting -we did not want to get back into the queue for a replacement dinner.

We all had pasta dishes which were poorly made. Cream sauces were essentially too thin. Pasta was swimming in flavored milk. Seems the
Chef just slapped the dishes together to get something out.

It is unfortunate to see this new restaurant with such poor kitchen service and quality. Likely won't last long.

This is fairly new, I guess from the reviews, it was delicious. Service was excellent. I had ribs, very yummy, husband had flat iron steak, he said it was very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Very reasonable also.

This is our new go to restaurant in Big Bear. The pink snapper at 12.99 is out of this world. The chicken fettuccine the very good.
If you want a good meal, great service at a reasonable price this is the place
