Very delicious sandwiches, piled high with meat. Give them a try and you'll be sure to return. There is not a lot of seating and it gets full during the lunch hour, so many people get their sandwiches to go.

My friend and I go here for lunch a least once a month. They have the best sandwiches in the area. All the staff is friendly and will even know your names once you're a regular there. I've never had anything bad there. I recommend going and giving it a try.

We tried a lunch this month and the food menu, seemed to be just a little over priced. The lunch was good and the service just right.

Big Bear is a fabulous family run business whose stafc are always friendly, upbeat, and helpful. Their menu is large but not overwhelming and they are always happy to make you something not on the menu. They have good cuts of meat, fresh baked bread, and a good assortment of cheeses. And their double smoked bacon is to die for!!... More

We've only ever had the sandwiches at Big Bear but they really know what they are doing with those. These are the best in town in my opinion. They are very generous on the fillings.

Good place for lunch, the food here is pretty great! Love the cookies and baked goods too. Seems like these folks like to be creative with what they make so that is nice!
