A wonderful variety on the menu. Went with young grandchildren; the staff was very patient! Santana and Mavericks have become our weekly dining treat. The outdoor patio is wonderful with excellent views of the lake.

We've known Susie, the proprietor, for the entire seven years we've lived fulltime in Big Bear and eaten at Paoli's Italian Restaurant, where she was the long-time manager and server. When we learned she had started her own restaurant, we immediately became a patron and we've eaten there now a total of four times, most recently last Thursday. The menu is so varied, it would be virtually impossible to be unable to find something appealing to your appetite, from appetizers to Italian, Asian, Mexican, French and America comfort food cuisines, all of which they prepare competently and deliciously. In fact, we'll be eating there again tomorrow. So, whether you're a full-time resident or just visiting Big Bear and staying in one of the nearby motels, like Nottingham's across the street, you can't go wrong by eating here!

This is in the old location of Evergreen which left sometime back. Menu is huge and varies with many interesting things for us locals. We tried it Wed. and made reservation for Saturday on the spot at the table. MY food was just the way I ordered it & wife was ecstatic over her chicken soup & chicken parm. This a new place that has a great , hard working waitress, & is giving a good bang for the buck. Also has alcohol, and good ice tea.

Stopped by for a late afternoon lunch with friends after driving the winding, nauseating 1.5 hours from Ontario Airport. We had one friend who didn’t fair the drive as well and our sweet server brought her ginger ale and crackers no charge. The portions were great for the price and the view of the lake (across 18) was pretty. All and all it was a nice lunch.

The wife and I had dinner here for our anniversary. We are full-time residents of the Big Bear Valley and this place is new located in the old 'Evergreens Restaurant' building. They do not have a website yet however, some of the independent websites have copies of their menu available on the Internet. Their menu is varied with American, Asian, Mexican, Italian, and French dishes listed. While the service was a little bit slow and it seemed like the staff were still learning what to do, the food overall was excellent. My steak was cooked to order with no issues (which is difficult to find in our valley) and all of the prices were fairly reasonable overall. I would recommend this place for a nice 'sit down' meal, just don't be in a rush when you visit and take your time to enjoy what they offer and the lake view.
