Your Trip to Big Bear: Food & Entertainment

So Much to do, so little time to do it!

Big Bear is such an beautiful place to visit, filled with some amazing people and delicious food. For being such a small town, there is so much to do! The entire town is packed with a great array or possible things to do, and all of the options are almost overwhelming! So I’d like to provide some guidance from a local’s perspective.

Dish of the Week: Avocado Bomb

What is green, stuffed with spicy ahi, topped with our crab & shrimp cake, dressed with chipotle aioli and ponzu dipping sauce? Yeup. The Avocado Bomb.

Our signature dish! The avocado bomb is a honey ale tempura battered avocado, spicy sashimi ahi, crab & shrimp cake, ponzu, chipotle aioli & wonton crisps. Only want a taste? Try a half order! Paris great with our “Honey Blonde Ale!” This is one of the hottest dishes in town. Everyone loves our signature Avocado Bomb!




For a kickass show, the place to go is The Cave in The Village. The Cave is the only live music venue in Big Bear and puts on a full show with a world class sound system, laser shows, and top tier bands. This weekend we have a local EDM and Punk Rock show on May 18th, followed by Dave Mason on May 19th! The Cave has shows every weekend, and will always show you a good time. There is not a bad seat in the house!

Check out the Shows!
