After having great difficulty finding a restaurant able to seat an 8-top, including two children, we decided to try Nottingham's. The staff was extremely accommodating and pushed a couple of tables together for us. Our server Logan was very professional, polite, and attentive. The food...More

Went here for lunch and ended up having breakfast. Staff was attentive and the food was good. Our table top was a little grimey. Like it had been wiped with just a damp cloth. Needs some detergent or bleach.

My husband and I go here at least once a month. We like the wide variety of food. We sometimes take our dog and sit on the patio.

A typical outdoors area with typical bar type food. The musician playing was good with his choice of songs and talking/visiting with the crowd.

Went here for dinner. Honestly, no real complaints with the service or anything else. The burger was just straight up bland. Like it was tasty, but I can cook better food at home. Kinda sad--because I really wanted to like the place.

We visit Big Bear frequently, and I really wanted to like this restaurant. The decor is really fun, and the food is good (not great). It was due to these considerations that I waited to address the service issue, hoping that our first two experiences...More

Yes, there is a happy hour, often with live music, and their food is really good. If the weather is nice you can eat on the patio and if it's not the upstairs dining has a view of the lake.
