From the owner

We are an organic scratch kitchen and *almost everything on our menu in house.

On safety—Our Gluten Free bread is sealed and stored separately from other bread items. We use completely different pans, utensils, etc when cooking and GF allergy/celiac meals. We use a separate fryer for anything breaded so it does not contaminate our fries, sweet potato fries, etc.

Super happy to have found this spot for our trips up the mountain. Food was excellent. Came for dinner, then came back for lunch a couple days later. Seemed understaffed, but both waiters were great. Enjoyed the truffle fries. REALLY enjoyed my burger. Had a tasty BLTA sandwich for lunch. Roasted zucchini/squash was fabulous. Wife's sandwiches (gluten focaccia bread) were a hit. Definitely pricey, but that's Big Bear. Great kombucha on tap. Enjoyed the pet-friendly patio area for lunch.

Was in Big Bear with friends for the weekend and really wanted to try this place out. We loved it. As soon as our waiter said the owner has celiac I felt instantly comfortable. I ordered the crab benedict and it was fantastic. I’m also allergic to nightshades and can’t eat potatoes. They subbed them with fruit for me. I don’t know when the last time was I had good honeydew in a restaurant, but the honeydew in the fresh fruit bowl was so flavorful. I wish they had a few more coffee options as I’m not a drinker and the majority of the drinks were alcoholic. As far as safety of dishes, however, this place is a must.

Was in big bear for a girls weekend was lucky enough to try this place out! Had the truffle fries which were to die for!! (Dedicated fryer) I had their homemade tomato soup which I found a little grainy. They made me the most amazing gluten free grilled cheese on bread that they are very proud of! Also! Had my first crab cake and found their lemon aïoli delicious. They were more than accommodating and the owners are very knowledgeable about celiac. Extensive menu had to try a few things! Paired with a bold glass of red. I would come back to do it all again! I will say. Service was SLOW and I was legitimately forgotten about twice. Was unable to get a second glass of wine. Lunch. Took me 2 hours and I was starving. Be ready to wait.

I'm not sure really what's going on with this place. I thought the food would be good given their description.

1. The waiter admitted the food is frozen then defrosted in back. A $40 steak.. frozen...

2. We ordered burgers instead and it was practically inedible.

Excellent experience. Clearly marked menu and the waitress went over what the gluten free modifications changed about each item.

There is a dedicated fryer, however the waitress mentioned that due to an error the day before it had been cross contaminated and needed to be cleaned before being gluten free again. Great knowledge and awareness.

And above all, delicious food!

Delicious food! On the pricier side, but lots of GF and vegetarian options. They have a gf fryer if you ask. The sweet potato fries are not gf as they have breading. They had live musicians on Wednesday night. Will visit here again!

Great experience! Restaurant is right down the street from public parking so it was easy to get to. A lot of the menu items were gluten free because the owner of the restaurant does not eat gluten. I was able to get French fries because they had a dedicated gluten free fryer. I would specify to your server that you need the gf fryer for your items because they may not automatically be made in that one.

I also had the quinoa salad with grilled chicken- it was delicious and a good sized portion!

Had an amazing dinner here tonight! I had the crab cakes and the Greek salad. Finished off with the cheesecake - this is a must get!! It was delicious! They also have a dedicated fryer. Very friendly wait staff and they said the owners also have a gluten allergy which is why they are so accommodating. Cute patio and they have live music on Wednesdays! We will be back!!

This is the best gf restaurant hands down in BB imo. So many safe amazingly delicious gf options on their menus - best gf cheesecake my daughter ever had. Best gf pork chops I’ve ever had. We have 3 symptomatic people with celiac disease and 2 gluten sensitive in our family.

The food was pretty awful!

We had a bowl of chicken soup & it only had one slice of celery & one slice of carrot.

We've had better wings & the burger wasn't the best.

The food is delicious! However they label a lot of things gluten free that are not. If your celiac be aware. The wings and fries are LOADED with gluten. We used our Nima sensor to check and they are not safe. The Quinoa & burgers tested good and where delicious. Don’t eat anything that goes in the fryer. And double check the menu-

Food and service was beautiful! Local and Fresh with celiac/gluten knowledge and care. I enjoyed crab cakes made with almond flour and a burger with a gluten free bun. Our server was knowledgeable about cross contamination and pointed out the fries are in a shared fryer. I will definitely be back for brunch to try the gf pancakes and eggs Benedict on the crab cakes!!
