Small dive bar with good reviews, which we like, so we decided to try it out. We went in on a slow weekday and the server told us to sit anywhere, so we took a seat and waited. And waited. We sat there for about ten minutes. There were two servers and they had a total of four tables between... More

After snowboarding all day we just wanted a super chill place to grab a few drinks and good food, with a fun atmosphere. Walked in and sat at the bar and were immediately greeted by the cutest, bubbliest bartender Allie. She was a hoot!! Eddie also helped us out and made me one of the best Micheladas I've had in...

OMG, on a tour of Big Bear from where we are staying our bus driver told us to check this place out as they serve great food. We read in our hotel book that if we showed our room key we would get a free beer. Very true, we each got 1. The russell burger and wild salmon was amazing.... More

Not much to look at but the food and drinks are a must visit. Appetizer menu is the best in town. Bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with blue cheese is delicious. Huge tasty burgers and a breakfast menu that serves up manly portions. Staff is awesome and very busy but they won't forget about you. Great patio out back too.

Good Food and Service. The sandwich's are large and come with fries. Next time we will share a sandwich. A lot of Bikes parked outside and it doesn't look to good from the outside but if you don't try it, you will miss something great.

Friendly employees and good bar food and drink prices. Just an old hole in the wall with free popcorn and peanuts.

We all had different burgers and enjoyed them very much. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere and has enough variety to select from.

This place was not on my radar. My inlaws who spend summers in Big Bear have talked about it often. For them if your dog is allowed on the patio it's good. I don't always trust their opinion. In this case they are correct. You have to go through the Eatery to the patio out back and it kind of... More

Have spent much time in BBL, delightful mountain resort community. Seems like something is going on about every weekend year round. And, have known about this "beer/burger joint", or so it would appear, for many years. About a month ago good friends recommended it for an early dinner. We agreed based upon a sense of adventure, not expectation. Were we... More

Murray's Saloon & Eatery has been serving the community of Big Bear Lake for over 20 years, and is a local's favorite. Murray's is famous for its Karaoke (7 nights a week) where you can find individuals from all walks of life (locals, bikers, skiers, hikers) any hour of the day, 365 days a year. Mike and Raelene are the passionate owners and operators of Murray's Saloon & Eatery. The Kostiuks took ownership of Murray's in May of 2009. Over the years they have made significant and much needed updates and improvements. Both the interior and exterior of the bar have been updated, as well as a new and varied menu of home cooked style eats, almost all made from scratch. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night along with daily specials. You'll find many items named for team members and locals who have inspired these over the top creations (see the Russell Burger). Oh, and if you don't find what you want on the menu, just tell the kitchen what you're craving and they'll happily prepare it for you. Our latest investment is the total redesign and rebuild of our draft beer system. The new system includes 12 handles total, 10 of which are dedicated to local and regional craft brews, as well as standout Belgian and German offerings. In addition, Murray's carries domestic, import and craft beers in bottle. Interested in wine? Murray's has fine California Reds and Whites along with cocktails and shots you won't find anywhere else. We also Cater. Interested in having your Wedding in Big Bear, or maybe a Company picnic? Contact us for more information. No party too small, or too big for us! We invite you to visit us on your next trip to Big Bear Lake. You won't be disappointed with the food, drink or hospitality at Big Bear's only 'Five Star Hole in the Wall.'
