Does it even count as a vacation if you don’t indulge in some good eats? California is more than just vegan options and gluten-free everything, especially around Big Bear Lake. But choosing where to eat in Big Bear Lake, or anywhere for that matter, can be a challenge. Before you leave your vacation behind and go back to reality, experience these must-try spots for each meal.
Ditch the Starbucks and fully immerse yourself into nature. Well, nature with brewed coffee. Moonridge Coffee Company is a wooden cabin on the outside and a cozy coffee shop on the inside. Serving up lattes to black coffees with sides of treats, this spot is a perfect way to start your day.
Being around since 1944, Teddy Bear Restaurant has rooted itself as a Big Bear Lake staple. Offering breakfast all day, you can enjoy the most important meal of the day any time you wish. They’re also known for their pies, so be sure to sample them all!
Getting a side of personality with your meal is free of charge. This spot won Travel Channel’s Showdown Countdown and has been around since 1975. With notes on the wall and portions often bigger than the plates, you will not be bored or leave hungry.
With over 40 beers on draft, a slew of spirits, and a variety of wines, you won’t leave The Bone Yard thirsty. Every adult can enjoy their own beverage while snacking on appetizers, something off the grill or smoker, or anything in between.
Watch the sunset while dining at The Pine Lake Front. This restaurant is right on the water and offers a menu just as good as the view. From grilled salmon to New Zealand rack of lamb, you can indulge on dinner. You are on vacation after all.
