A local recommended this place for our anniversary. Although it was pretty crowded, we got in right away but I'd advise a reservation. The food was all wonderful and the service was great. I got their special pasta for the night and my husband loved his steak. Very good menu even with veggie items, and a good drink/wine list. For... More

Happy hour menu was great; Mom had the carnitas tostada and I did the BBQ pork sliders. Food was great and Irish car bomb was tasty. Definitely recommend 👍🏻

This is a cute location, very cabinesque, with friendly service, but the happy hour menu was not very impressive. Just basic fried foods and house beverages for their happy hour. A little more variety would jump it up to a 4 star.

We went here for New Year's Eve and had a great meal. Our daughter is vegetarian and loved her meal, the rest of us enjoyed the steaks. The French Onion Soup is delicious.

We dined on the patio, as it is dog-friendly. Breakfast, lunch, happy hour, even dinner, were all comfortable under the shade in Summer, and heat lamps in the fall. Very tasty meals, snacks, and drinks.

We came here our last day up in Big Bear before we headed back home after the Thanksgiving weekend. (Just hours before the town was hit with snow) The breakfast was very delicious and the service was very quick and polite.
