Tropicali 40616 Village Dr, Big Bear Lake Hawaiian • $$
40616 Village Dr, Big Bear Lake

“Tropicali is an amazing place to stop while in the Big Bear Lake area. They have a delicious fusion of Hawaiian/American food. Their service is hands down the friendliest and nicest place I have ever been to or experienced. For spice lovers, you have to get the Bob Gnarley sauce, it has everything you could ever dream of. Their waffles are delicious and the poke is both fresh and refreshing. I will be back here every time I am in the area”

Murray's Saloon & Eatery 672 Cottage Ln, Big Bear Lake Bar & Grill • $$
672 Cottage Ln, Big Bear Lake

“Great place for a burger and a beer. I had the Jalapeno burger wrapped in bacon and smothered in jalapenos. Not for the timid! The meat was juicy and very tasty. Ordered onion rings and got fries, but what the heck. I'll overlook that this time! Feels like a locals hangout.”

Grizzly Manor Cafe 41268 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake Breakfast • $$
41268 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake

“This small restaurant on the main avenue has all the local vibe. The staff was very friendly and attentive.The menu brings the most representative of an American breakfast, and here it is delicious! ? I loved the texture of the pancakes. I ordered a Polar Bear Combo that included 2 pancakes (giant! Be careful with the size), 2 eggs any way you like, hashbrown and bacon (which was amazing ?) for 18.95 usd.Everything very delicious and fast service! A good place for breakfast if you don't want to stay at a chain restaurant. It has a good cute and local touch Recommendation, check your times carefully as they close early and there is usually a queue of approximately 40 minutes on weekends.”

Sweet Basil Bistro 40629 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake Italian • $$
40629 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake

“Wonderful dining experience! This little restaurant does not feel like it's tucked away under anything. We were seated right and our waitress was super friendly. I think her name was Jaime and she took great care of us. She recommended the grilled artichoke appetizer and it was so delicious we didn't even stop to take a picture! We followed it up with the penne with bolognese sauce. Added an extra Italian sausage because why the heck not? My fiance had the linguine with the pine nut pesto sauce and she loved it. And apparently she needed a ribeye on the side to round it out. The steak was cooked perfectly. We finished our meal with the house made doughnuts and they came with three sauces. Those take a few extra minutes as they fry them to order. This was a gem and we will be back. It has a classy feel for a date night but there were families in there too so don't worry about bringing the kids.Dietary restrictions: They had vegetarian and gluten free options on their menuParking: The parking lot is near a bowling alley so you can always park there and walk down as the lot in front of the restaurant was almost full when we were there.Kid-friendliness: They have kid friendly options and the staff were awesome with the kids we saw”

Gaby's Latin Flavors 41618 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake Latin American • $$
41618 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake

“MUST know before you go: all food is cooked to order, so you will wait AT LEAST 45 minutes for your entrees. Once served, the food is delicious - meats seasoned well, chips and rice and beans all light and fresh - just as others have said. The nachos are loaded, chorellana is tender, queso dip is great. But if you’re coming hungry or with kids, prepare yourselves to hang out in order to chip away at the wait time!”

“I've done a lot of traveling around the U.S. and although finding "the best sour beer" isn't a personal goal of mine; going to local breweries and getting good beer is always part of my travel experience. I've been to 46 U.S. states and when I say the "LEGENDARY: Sweet Fruition" sour is easily a top 5 best sour I've ever had I mean it. Well worth the visit if you like sours. Really friendly staff, dog friendly (as long as your dog doesn't bark and behaves) and they had live music (it was a Friday). Additionally the fries were really good.Parking: Maybe about 10 spots.”

I personally love the chicken taquitos and blended mango margarita—it comes in a huge cup and they do not go light on the alcohol! Lastly, Laura was a delight and had great customer service?”

I didn't have internet at home, it was the only place I could play World of Warcraft. Even despite often not ordering anything Amanda and Angela never had issue with me being there and always offered to make me something which looking bad I wish I had done more.”

“Easy place to walk to up and grab a bite at Bear Mountain Resort. Everything here is made to order. BBQ in the Park has grilled hamburgers and chicken sandwiches on their menu. Make it a combo and add some chips and a drink. BBQ in the Park is located on the sun deck between Main lodge and Big Bear Sports. There is plenty of seating all around once you get your food. Just heads up, the lines can be long during lunch hours and there is no mobile food ordering. So you have to wait in line like the rest of us.”

If you're complaining about salsa being hot, at a Mexican restaurant, maybe you're not meant for this.
