We had a great time at this place. Bartenders were extremely friendly. The food was wonderful. My husband had hamburger and I had fish & chips. Prices for food & drinks were reasonable. They had karaoke. A very casual place. Had a fun time.

Came here after other TA reviews based on price and reviews. Did not disappoint! Most food prices are about $10 or less, and all that we ordered (burgers, bacon wrapped shrimp, fries, and onion rings) were housemade and excellent. Burgers were HUGE and splittable -...More

We tried out Murrays based on ratings on Tripadvisor, as we like to try more local places when we travel. At first glance, it was a typical local dive bar, with a pool table, and music machine. It was pretty busy for 6 pm on...More

Murrays is the best bar in The Village in Big Bear and, surprisingly, has some of the best rated food on the mountain. This place gets packed on Friday and Saturday night . The bartenders keep up pretty well. Karaoke Friday night. Two thumbs up.

Great burgers and a fun atmosphere. The people there are friendly. It was busy at 2 PM on a Saturday. Not a big place so expect to have to wait. So much more better than a corporate place.

Murray's is the local's favorite place to drink and grab a bite to eat for under $20. The drinks are always good, the food is always better...and you absolutely cant beat the price!

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.'
