    I have been to Big Bear many times and have always had a great experience. They have great beers that are made on the premises unlike some other so called breweries in the area. The atmosphere is the best though, I love it in the winter time when you walk in and it feels like you are in a cabin in the rockies somewhere. Not typical for south florida but always fun when the weather gets a little cold. Try the beer cheese soup or prime rib if available.

    My friends and family really enjoyed our Christmas dinner party at your establishment on Saturday. We celebrate every year and this was the best service I have had in a long time. All the orders were correct, the waitress was constantly at our table assisting us and the food was excellent. Thanks!

    Great burgers..they never disappoint. Wanted to eat outside...patio a little noisy from fountain...it's a parking lot patio but bushes and a fountain make it pleasant. Patio is well covered and had fans. Big Bear is always reliable and a great neighborhood restaurant. One of the few around that is not a chain! Bring a sweater if you eat inside. Enjoy

DA BOMB !!!!! the menu over like 2 decades is virtually unchanged. & the fod quality ,once above average,now borderline Appleby's. the ambiance also unchanged,& that's not a good thing. that atmosphere,in current times is like dining in a funeral parlor. and our server,I felt was a bit aloof & disinterested.

    We had good food, good time and good service. The only problem we were served wrong wine, not the one ordered and server poured it without letting us see the bottle, not sure why - mistake or they run out of what we wanted. This should be corrected.

    Been here several times and never disappoints. The food is always good. Their spinach dip appetiser is a great sharing dish, which our grand kids demolished in seconds! I had the ribs which are always good. The food comes hot and quick too, great if you just want to be in and out. If not your server will slow the pace for you. Highly recommended.

    Having been here many times I didnt think anything of it to take my date here for here birthday. The ambiance was great the service was good however the Trout that she ordered was over cooked she hardly ate any of it. I have the Turkey meatloaf which was very good. The next time I dine here I will make sure to ask for the fish not to be cooked so much.

    The Big Bear Brewery is a fantastic local restaurant. Brewing their own delicious beers only adds to the already superb menu of burgers and steaks. Starting the meal with a bread bowl of their specialty beer muenster soup you can't go wrong. If you're tired of sports bars and overpriced steakhouses this northern tavern style restaurant is for you.

    We've been to Big Bear on a few occasions now and haven't had anything but great food. It's heavy, and not for every day, but well thought out flavor combinations and great quality ingredients. I don't have a gluten intolerance but appreciate their separate menu and accomodations in this area. The beer is brwewed in house and offer some great options. Don't worry too much about prices as you'll have plenty of leftovers. The restaurant stays reasonably tame even when slammed, so it is easy to chat. The service is has been good, though nothing particularly notable aside from their accommodation of dietary reastrictions. Even though we usually eat lighter meals we will keep going back for the great food, unique beers, and good experiences.

    We have been to Big Bear several times for dinner; this was our first brunch. It was good and offered different menu selections than typical breakfast menus. We were pleased to find that we were seated immediately. This was a welcome relief compared to the wait at dinner - even with a reservation. It did take rather long for our meal to be served; perhaps this was due to the fact that the restaurant had just opened for the day.

    We went with friends and we had time to catch up! The food was amazing. They also have the best selections in an extensive menu. The new pretzel bread is wonderful. Do not miss dessert. We had warm apple cobbler topped with ice cream and it was the BEST! Mike G and Billy are great servers!! Loved it all and we will return soon.

    Big Bear is great for moderate priced dining. The beer is great - Big Bear has been crafting their own beer since it opened. Even if you are not interested in the beer - this is a fantastic spot for dining. The Salads are the best I've had - try the rattlesnake with chicken or beef - you will be impressed.
