Full compliment of breakfast items , and hot meat items, omelette station, hot drinks, and champagne or mimosas. No one dish stood out, and the service was just average, my main point of this review is that for the Holiday, and the supposed status of the hotel, this was way over priced and mediocre in taste and presentation.

We had two Groupon vouchers for breakfast here and it felt like stealing getting all of this good food for free. We all really enjoyed our breakfast, especially the waffles. Kids eat free here even without the vouchers so it's a no brainer for families. The place is a little small so I would imagine there is often a wait... More

This is a review of my complimentary breakfast at Stilwells. The restaurant was only about 10% full due to it being a weekday in Big Bear. We were seated immediately at at large table.

While staying at the adjoining hotel (The Lodge at Big Bear), we ate breakfast every morning at this restaurant. We were quite satisfied with the food & service. The host/greeter, Matan, & our server, Jennifer, were friendly & provided excellent service. The all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet isn't all that extensive, but the basics are there: Pancakes or French toast (depending on... More

We went for a meal at Stillwells on our first night in the hotel as we had travelled for hours and were all too tired to go into town. On first appearances, we thought we'd hit the jackpot. The decor was lovely, and new. However, the food was pretty poor, Most of us ordered the pasta off the daily specials... More

We stayed at the Lodge, the hotel which this restaurant is in, and ate dinner here the night we arrived and the next two mornings (Saturday and Sunday). Pros: Good value for a hotel restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised by the prices and the "niceness" of the interior of the restaurant. The meals we ate were well-proportioned, and I thought...

My daughter thought this looked like a really nice place to eat because of the pond out front and the beautiful log style building. Never judge a place by the way it looks on the outside. The wait time was not bad but the service and the food left a lot to be desired. When the waiter took our order... More
