About Captains Anchorage Restaurant and Bar - Big Bear Lake, CA
This rustic stone and log restaurant has been serving fine steaks, prime rib, seafood, and lobster since 1947. Inside, the dark, nautical decor and fire-warmed bar are just right on blustery winter nights.
The Captain's Anchorage Restaurant is a landmark in Big Bear Lake, adding special flavor to the local history and to every dish served. When built in 1946, the restaurant was known as the Sportsman's Tavern. In the ensuing fifty years, the establishment has weathered fires, gambling and an innocuous ghost. Many stories are told of the ghost's antics. Most employees are not rattled by his rattling of pots and pans, nor his propensity for loudly tromping upstairs, but his habit of hiding silverware, glasses, and other common items is aggravating at times!
