Visited the Black Diamond Tavern with my fiancée and we shared calamari, the prime rib dip and the heirloom tomato salad. All three were great, but the heirloom tomato salad was amazing!

I have been to this place twice now.... All I can say is AMAZING! I had the baked penne arrabiatta. So yummy. The sauce was rich and creamy with just the right amount of spice. We also had the prime rib dip. The bread was soft but just enough to hold up with out being soggy. The meat was tender... More

I liked the place. My burger was cooked as requested and the prices were ok for the area. I would recommend it for lunch and or a beer to relax at the bar

We stopped by here after a day on the slopes. The food was great for the price and the service was fast. I recommend the nachos.

We dine at the Black Diamond every time we are in Big Bear Lake. Food is always consistently good, service spot on with great mountain ambience. One of our favorites in BB!

Walked over from our hotel for a drink and bit to eat at the end of a long day at Oktoberfest. The game was on and there was a acoustic musical act. All good except for the $15 6 slice pizza, that was to small to be considered a medium and to big to be considered small.

We came in for a late lunch. We were seated but the host forgot to notify the wait staff that we were here so we waited around awhile and had to get up and find someone finally. The wait staff was very nice. The food was average. My husband liked his Turkey Club. My chicken Caesar had no flavor whatsoever... More
