What attract me most is their al fresco dining, perfect for that night after wandering around Big Bear Mountain on a winter day. The firepit outside was very relaxing eating dinner and sipping beer under the moonlight.Food: 4/5

They have a small stage for live music/bands. Someone's performance was just ending when i arrived.I loved the ambiance with the fire pits and fairy lights. They had propane heat lamps to keep you warm. ?I had the 572 Fire Burger, a Mai Tai drink, and a Molten Lava cake for dessert. All were good. ?I can really only say good things about the food, drink, ambiance, & friendly service. ?


It was our anniversary & we came here to listen to music and have a “nightcap” (wine). The musician, Wil Roberts, was playing a set of songs that we totally loved (“Fire & Rain”, “Country Roads“, “Bye Bye Miss American Pie” & so many more). We sat by the outdoor fire pit totally enjoying the music and vibe & especially the sing along for the closing song! Awesome place!!!!

Best food and best customer service. This is our go to place for lunch or dinner when we are up in big bear. Their pizza is better than any other establishment up here, burgers are yummy and their calamari is delicious. Everything is reasonably priced. The atmosphere outside is beautiful with the trees around and live music with fire going. Inside is very tranquil. Wait staff is very attentive and great! Love love love this place!

We had no plans to eat here, but heard the music from across the sidewalk and decided to pop over. The performer played 2 pianos at one time, at least 2 guitars throughout the set and sang. Very talented, made for a great environment ti enjoy a couple of glasses of wine and some grub.

The food was alright but service was pretty quick. Ordered and got our plates within 10 minutes which I love. Sangria probably wasn't worth getting again but they had lots of bar options. Loved the live music and the fire pits

Great outdoor patio with live music everyday, fire pits when it's cold and big beer selection. We love all the ahi dishes and the burger is good. Only knocked it down a star because of beer prices. I understand you pay a little for location and entertainment but $9 a pint is a bit excessive if you ask me

One of our go to spots in big Bear! Great food and drinks and outside entertainment. They are also very dog friendly.

Live music went brazy on a Sunday evening. West virginiaaaaa mountain mamaaaa. Indoor dining was practically empty but the outdoor seating was lit. Waited 30 mins to order food and waited 30 mins to get my takeout order. Absolutely worth the wait. The live music in the background and the dodgers playing at the indoor bar kept me entertained. My order of Teriyaki burger with sweet potato waffle fries, Cali burger with tots, Classic cheeseburger with fries, Salmon with roasted veggies, and Portabella sandwich came out perfect. Calamari was a skip though, it was burnt hehe. We enjoyed our meal back at our cabin and our 16 month old baby girl absolutely loved her $27 Salmon Plate haha. Thank you for packing everything so nicely even during the crazy Labor Day weekend rush.

In the middle of the village of Big Bear Lake we have stopped at 572 Social Kitchen. We arrived just at opening on a perfect August day to enjoy lunch outside. With open seating and a live band playing classic hits, the vibe at 572 was inviting, relaxed and comfortable for anyone there. We ordered our food from the bar and being one of the first tables of the day, received our food within a reasonable time. As a starter, I shared an order of 572 hot wings with my girlfriend and family. When ordering hot wings, most would expect to receive a fried wing slathered in buffalo sauce, whereas at 572 you get an incredibly crispy fried wing with their own sauce on the side for dipping. Their wings are a new spin on old classic and definitely the best thing we had at the restaurant. Their house made 572 sauce is definitely a mixture of a ranch/Mayo base mixed with some type of hot sauce. Not the most original, but still really good and can be poured on anything. For our mains my lovely lady went with their new chicken wrap and a side of waffle cut sweet potato fries. The chicken wrap was nothing to write home about but served it's purpose as a lighter lunch menu item with fresh ingredients. Their sweet potato fries however were a nice curveball seldom seen at most restaurants. I truly enjoyed how perfectly sweet, pillowy and crispy these fries came out. For my plate I ordered their California burger with a side of fries. My "go to" burger. The burger was cooked a perfect medium rare with a nice thick slab of bacon, a huge chunk of avocado, and crisp, fresh veggies inside. Just the way I like it. My only drawback would be a little more seasoning on the patty. Their fries were perfectly cooked, had a nice crisp and wouldn't disappoint even the toughest of critics. Total cost of our meal came out to just over $50 for only food. No drinks. While that might warrant some to believe that's way overpriced and label this place as a tourist trap, the overall ambiance and live band made the price tag an easier pill to swallow. Four stars.

The burger itself tasted burnt and wasn't anything crazy. Solid 6/10. The Mac was actually really good, solid 8. The edamame was meh and really dry 4/10. The service was super slow and the outside is very crowded. The food itself was mediocre for the price. They forgot my burger completely and I had to go to the kitchen to remind the servers. This was our last option but the only place open during the busy Labor Day weekend.


We really enjoyed sitting outside in the early evening with a couple of drinks and listening to some very good solo performers.

Ordered chicken strips with sweet potato waffles. Came out cold, so I asked them to bring me a hot plate. they ended up refrying the same plate . The chicken was really hard to eat. Would not recommend this place.

We enjoyed sitting out on the patio which became full and live music started at 5. Attentive food servers with plenty of food runners bringing everything out. Good food. Enjoyed our evening.

Live music, good lights, great cocktails, dog friendly patio with perfect SoCal weather. Ultimate place to chill at the end of a big bear-y day! Spicy mojito was legit spicy and epic! Mai Tai was pretty good too! Food portions are descent
