Big Bear Mountain Brewery

Reviewed By 4Ztravelers

We spent a pleasant enough evening at the Big Bear Mountain Brewery, trying out their famous avocado bomb, ribeye steak, and burgers. The avocado bomb was quite good, but both the steak and burger were a disappointment. Perhaps if we were beer drinkers, we would have been more forgiving toward the food?? The staff at this place seemed a bit overwhelmed. We asked for silverware a couple of times and they brought us one set for a table of four. Then, when we asked for napkins, we were given two cloth ones and two paper ones. Oh well. We had a good time, but definitely won't be returning to this place.

Northwoods Resort

Had a wonderful time in Big Bear. Northwoods Resort was wonderful. We only had one problem, the air-con did not work. We told the front desk and set up a repair person. When that did not work they gave us a new room so everything worked out fine.

Whiskey Dave's

Reviewed By So_Cal_Berlyn

We stopped in here for a couple drinks and to check out the band on a weekend night. Drinks were decent, staff was really friendly, band was mediocre at best. I think we paid $5 each at the door, which was acceptable. It's an older place that could use some fixing up, but it's large with plenty of places to sit and pool tables behind the bar. Happened to sit next to the owner at the bar, seemed like a fairly nice guy. Can't say anything bad about the place, typical dive bar.

We came here because we had gone on the zip lining excursion next door. We were excited to see they had a shuffleboard in the back along with pool tables and other arcade games. The draft beer selection is excellent and the appetizers weren’t bad either. We shared zucchini fries and wings. The only reason it does not get 5 stars is we did feel the shuffleboard could use some maintenance. It seemed uneven in a few parts and slightly tilted but we still had a great time.

Kallan's Bar & Grill

Reviewed By Paula M

Sugarloaf local I have been going to Kallans once a week for a month so I could write my review.Service and food are not consistent. Its basically a "crap shoot" on how your food be and the service you get depending on who's in the kitchen and which waitress is working. Watch your bill and count your change. My $8.26 bill came back without change. I was told they didn't have change but the waitress would make up for it the next time I came in. Can you believe a restaurant doesn't have change, give me a break.Week 1: Wednesday, happy hour - wings. food good and service ok Friday Fish & Chips - also good decent serviceWeek 2: Wednesday, Wings OK, but terrible service. Music was so loud you couldn't hear yourself talk. Several tables commented about the music but nothing was done.Saturday, brought my family for burgers. The burgers were bad but the fries were awful! the fries were stuck together in a big mess and everyone ended up with the runs. My family said never again.Week 3: Saturday, Neighbor and I ordered Fish & Chips, this time the order contained less fish, when we commented that there should be four in the order we were told, "Oh these are bigger so you got less" yet the table next to us had the same order, with the same size portion, but got all four. That night the service was awful. Too many customers and not enough help on the floor or in the kitchen.Week 4: Wednesday Wings, the Garlic/Parmesan didn't have any garlic and the cheese wasn't graded, simply some pieces of cheese placed on the wings. This was waitress who didn't have any change

Good food at reasonable prices. Good music. Fun and relax atmosphere. We’ve been to a lot of restaurants in Big Bear this winter. On our last Saturday night here this season we wanted to go somewhere different and a local person suggested Wyatt’s, saying its inside the convention center. I didn’t know there was a convention center in Big Bear; I thought maybe its like a food court in the convention center. So we get there, right across from Motel 6, you have to enter its parking lot from Division Road. This is definitely more of a “local” restaurant; you wouldn’t know there is a restaurant there driving by. We enter the building and the whole “convention center” is Wyatt’s. Nice country western decoration on the walls, on the ceiling, with a band stand. Most seats are long bench seats (with view towards the band); there are some seats by the ordering area too. You’d walk up to the ordering window, then they bring the food out to you.We got a mushroom burger with salad, wings, and a cheese burger with fries. The burger was very good, and big. Beef patty was thick and juicy. Priced at less than $10 (burger and a side), it was very reasonable (compared to others at $13-14 with smaller burger). Wings were OK, slightly hard. The added bonus was the music. Band started playing at 6pm. They played mostly country music, but also some Beatles, and even recent hit Perfect by Ed Sheeran. If you like country music, good burger and beer, then try this place.

We love the vibe at Murray's and ended up going twice for a meal and drinks. The bartender (forgot his name ;-( ) was great! He worked the entire bar by himself and the service was excellent. Both meals were delicious! Dinner: We loved the chicken wings (try the BBQ hot sauce) and enjoyed their beef tacos. A glass of wine was $6.00 and the glass was filled to the brim.Next day Lunch: I had the Jalapenó burger which was to die for and my husband had the chicken burger that was a real piece of chicken (not a pre-made patty). I enjoyed a yummy Gin Bloody Mary with their custom mix...nice & spicy. We were so full and satisfied that we skipped dinner that day. Do yourself a favor and stop by Murray's.

Big Bear Lake Brewing Company

Reviewed By Bostonsavatage

This place was A-OK for sure! They did make a few errors with my order, but were VERY quick to correct it, and it ended up being delicious! My wife enjoyed hers as well. The ambiance isn't bad, but not great.The biggest place where they need to improve is there kids meals. Carbs and more carbs is pretty much the only option. Like do you want a $9 grilled cheese with fries or veggies? The veggies are literally carrot and celery sticks and the celery sticks were with all the leaves on, like you're supposed to eat those... If that's your kids meal... that should be 4.99 at most. Other than that, this felt like a very "a-okay" place... but when on vacation (and for the check), there are far better big bear options.

Was here recently (in Moonridge) for a crafting weekend and we decided to venture out one night for a yummy dinner. We headed over to Black Diamond Tavern because some of the girls we were traveling with had remembered it fondly.We were NOT disappointed!! From the super juicy burgers (half pound!) to the chicken salad, we were all impressed with the quality of food they offered. Also, kudos to any kitchen staff who can actually make a medium rare burger these days, you'd be surprised even after asking staff "Can they REALLY make it medium rare" and being told "Yes!" so many fail....you won't have that problem here, my burger was perfectly cooked and so juicy and flavorful. I was very impressed and happy to get it.All their food was yummy and the staff did their best to make sure our large party was happy and full!Had a little blip while were were there, I misplaced my keys in the ladies room and we went wild looking for them when finally one of the great staff members found them (someone had JUST turned them in!) and once again, we were on our way. Thank you, Black Diamond Tavern!! We will be back!! <3

B.J's Restaurant

Reviewed By James S

Great hamburgers. Quarter pounder, Third pounder, and 2/3 pounder - 2 parties. I think you could even get a full pound of meat. Lots of fixins and a side. Great bun. The price was very reasonable for a great burger. Pitchers of beer were available and cheap for a resort area. This is a sma!! Quaint restaurant with small picnic type tables and bench seats. Also outside deck seating. I think my 2/3 pounder was about $11. This is a real burger. We will definitely be back.
