We were a party of 20 who ordered a variety of main courses, but mainly steak. The sirloin was lovely, tasty, and accompaniments good too. The restaurant has a good ambiance and I would not hesitate to go back.

Our decision to eat here was made purely from the fact it was very local to our hotel, the local restaurant guide made it sound really nice. Inside it is a charming building with plenty of character and lots of pictures of Big Bear Lake...More
