According to our wait staff, this place was not yet a year old when we visited, which makes it all the more worthy of celebration. The food is excellent (and the portions sizable), the service is first class, the patio/dining room/upstairs bar (with a bar menu!!) is classy and comfortable. The menu is varied and intriguing, the bar fully stocked, the wine list very good and well priced. You'll need to wait for seating unless you're there at some weird time, but the wait is more than worth it. If you visit Big Bear without dining here, you're going to miss a perfectly delightful experience. Go. Now.

The atmosphere is casual nice- date worthy but also good for families. The menu is interesting. My strawberry avocado salad with chicken was delicious, my friends fish & chips were good too. My husband liked his chicken dish as well. As for dessert, the bread pudding was the winner. Service was friendly.

Oakside is the sister restaurant to Peppercorn Grille in Big Bear Lake Village. Completely remodeled, it has a beautiful, warm and tasteful ambiance. The bar upstairs is very comfortable as well, with attentive staff, and great drinks! The menu has just enough choices to not be overwhelming. The prices are quite reasonable for the quality of the food, and beauty of the surroundings. Lovely outdoor patio with firepit as well!

This restaurant is owned by the people who own the Peppercorn. The bar is on the 2nd floor and has no fresh air - very bad air. Sitting on the patio is a pleasure. Delicious food and good prices too.

This opened last year and we were delighted. We returned this year and had our anniversary dinner here.
We couldn't get an early weekend reservation, so we did a mid-week one instead.
The service was great and is in the older down town area.
They have outdoor patio service, a full bar, wine menu and a great selection on the food menu. Owned by the same owner's of Peppercorn.
