What does an Aussie do when the recommended pie and cupcake places in Big Bear are closed? He zooms in on the closest pub! We'd noticed this place on our way in, so called in on our way out. It's a really cool and funky pub, no airs and graces, just a few tables, a couple of lounge chairs and... More

This little place serves up some pretty decent beer and passable pub food. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and they had some live music too. Sports on the TV in the corner. Happy staff. A pleasant little joint.

Pros - Great local beer - Cool looking bar inside Cons -Absolutely the worst service One server - brown haired girl - was just shy of openly hostile in dealing with patrons. We were sitting on the patio and ignored completely after asking for help a few times. And not just us, the table next to us was having a... More

We went with our extended family of 10 people and had great friendly service. The food was very good with HUGE portions. The beer was also excellent. It was so good that we went twice.

In all honesty, the only reason that we went here was to buy a Pint glass that said Big Bear. I liked their logo better than the other brewery in the village. After hiking a little on the PCT, we were hungry, so we decided that it would be a reasonable to have lunch there. We both ordered flights, which... More

The place has a lot of character. It is a very friendly bar/restaurant with excellent food. The Chili was the best I have had in California. The service was quick and the prices reasonable.

I went in today for a beer. After 10+ minutes of waiting at the bar and being ignored, I left. It wasn't even busy. I wanted to try this even though I had been warned by the locals of the bad service. Oh well, won't go there again.

This is a family owned place with decent food, good beer. This place is a local hangout and very casual. Try the tangerine wheat beer. If you want comfort without pretense this is a ggod choice. They have a few outdoor tables for those that have dogs or kids.
