This is second time we visit this place, at the beginning we were not sure if that was the place we had dinner two years ago. Somehow we remembered that the first experience was great. Then we decided to get in and we were not wrong!..........The experience was excellent, since the arrival the service was very kind. The waiters attend... More

We don't have a lot of 'classy' restaurants up here, so this one really stands out. Service is attentive and knowledgeable, food is delicious, and they are one of the few places that have nice wines by the glass.

My husband and I both ordered the same Rib Eye Steak entree for lunch. They were grilled perfectly and so tasty. The restaurant also allowed us to substitute small salads for the standard side of mixed vegetables. The dressings were also delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed a leisurely lunch of generous portions in a warm... More

We dined here at 4:00 for an early dinner and cancelled our 6:30 Rez for later. We experienced a 45 minute wait but walked the town. However, some walk ins were turned away as we were being seated so make a reservation if you really want to get in. We had the vegetable soup, the pesto pasta special with chicken... More

The bread basket with the oil and balsamic vinegar is to die for 😊 It's really our favorite 🤗 We could eat that all day long. Though.... please stop raising your price of the salad.

We were passing through Big Bear and I decided to try the number 1 on Tripadvisor. It was lunch time where the prices were reasonable - some reviews mentioned high prices for dinner. Cosy atmosphere on a cold February day. Very friendly hostess and waitstaff. Hamburger was great with tasty wedge fries. Spouse had the lunch special of Honey BBQ... More

Reservations are a good thing idea. We went on a Thursday night and had to wait but they don't have a bar. You have several places nearby though and it worked out fine. Good wine list. Everything we had was very good. Lobster bites, spinach salad, clam chowder and dessert. This is our second trip here.

I'm so happy we decided to eat here! Very delicious food, friendly staff, and cute/comfortable restaurant. I had the Friday fish and chips, and my husband had a delicious turkey sandwich that I believe had cranberries on it. His was tastier than mine, but mine was also good. The fresh bread was scrumptious, but arrived after our meals did. I... More
