Thanksgiving Day Eats at Big Bear Lake
Cool weather means great fishing! Spend the day out on the lake fishing the abundant trout and bass that swim through the calm lake waters. Local marinas and boat rentals are open throughout November.
Thinking of just taking it easy? Don’t worry. Many of Big Bear’s local restaurants are open Thanksgiving Day. A local favorite, the Peppercorn Grille, is open from 12 to 8 pm Thanksgiving Day and is offering the full dinner menu plus a roast turkey special. Looking for something a bit more casual? Murray’s Saloon and Eatery is offering a free Thanksgiving dinner until 7 pm or until supplies run out. Just don’t forget to pair your turkey with their renowned jalapeno poppers—they’ll be serving the standard menu all day!
