I love this restaurant for the marvelous, healthy salads with mixed greens and avocado. Husband loves the BBQ, particularly, the prime rib! Greatest owners! The owners do so much for the schools in this community! Even if the food was not so delicious, just the fact they are so generous! Best omelettes! Owners of this restaurant and the Barnstorm are...

Took a family trip and upon entering an empty restaurant we were unsure about the quality. But once the food arrived all doubts quickly faded. Great service and tasty food all around.

Delicious food, nice ambience too! One of the best local restaurants offering homemade tasting German specialties that are not easily found in restaurants. We went here for New Year's Eve and had a great time ordering a variety of their German dishes and all were excellent! Try something a little different from a different culture - what's not to like?

So many choices, so little time and room in my stomach. Everything was delicious. The atmosphere is warm and healthy and there's parking!!!!

The food was ok. It was just not up what I had heard about the place. But I went on a slow day so maybe it was not their A game. The restaurant it self was beautiful and welcoming. I'd be willing to try it again.

We were visiting Big Bear for Thanksgiving and needed a nice place for dinner. We were happy that they were open on that day and not crazy busy. They even let half of our group order off the German menu. It was the best German food we have had in years! Definitely must try if visiting the area.

Missed my avocado greens salad. Also the great staff and owners! Love looking out the windows in the bar area to see the snow falling down. With the German themed businesses across the street, I feel like I am in a different country. Big Bear is beautiful this time of year and there is a lot of snow making going... More

The food was good, once I finally got the correct order. I waited a really long time for my food, but then it was the wrong Omelet. I had to wait for them to make another one. Not good when you're starving 1st thing in the morning!
