On the airport, this little gem is a favorite! Everything on the menu is wonderful. Love that breakfast is available all day. Corned beef sandwich is great, as are the salads, the club sandwich and the salads. Omelettes are delicious too. Service is friendly and fast. Tiny place...maybe 12 tables. But great food and a view of the airport with... More

This is a must eat at place. We watched the planes take off and land. A great view of the snow covered mountains. The food is very good and the portions are large. My wife enjoyed the wine. For a unique experience and enjoy seeing something different than four walls a real treat

After being in the desert and Puerto Vallarta for five weeks, was so great to dine at the Barnstorm! Olivia was so great as I needed to chill for an hour and have wine, a great tuna sandwich and order food to go for the next day as we have been out of town so long! Renee Wagner is one... More

I'd only recommend coming here if you love the idea of being able to watch small, single-prop airplanes taxi out to the runway at Big Bear Airport. The service is fine, the food is adequate, but this would only be acceptable if the food was priced to match and the airplane taxiing was a spectacular side show. A breakfast entree... More

Just love dining at the Barnstorm and looking out the window to see the pilots take off and land! Always someone interesting flying in for breakfast or lunch! You never know who you may meet! Great breakfast, lunch and dinner menus! Love the breakfast burrito with hash browns and the albacore tuna salad with veggies, sunflower seems and hard boiled... More

If you're in Big Bear and looking for a big breakfast try the Barnstorm. The portions are large as are the menu choices, it took me awhile to decide what to have. The restaurant faces Big Bear airport so watching the small planes land and take off is a treat for old and young alike. The facilities are clean and... More

My family of 5 went here for breakfast because it seemed to get good reviews. We were greeted and seated right away by the very busy hostess/waitress/cashier. Next came the wait. We waited about 10 minutes for her to have time to come back and get our drink order, then another 20 for her to take our food order. The... More

Went for a late lunch with a couple that had flown into this airport before & had enjoyed the food. Agree it is a little pricey, but also agree that the staff is very friendly, if a little slow. 2 of us had the garlic burger-really good! Turkey sandwich (Jim & Sue) was bland, but the meat was good quality.... More

We wanted to watch the airplanes takeoff and land, so we went to the Barnstorm for breakfast. This place is relatively small and is right below the tower. The restaurant is very clean and the waitress was really nice. You're literally right next to the taxiway and fuel pumps to watch the private airplanes refuel. I think the food was... More

The ambiance is this restraints best feature. My friend and I also loved their specialty blueberry French Toast plate. We are going to return for lunch later in the week, their menu looks fantastic!
