Rate-A-Restaurant #294: Dynasty Big Bear

Dynasty Big Bear

Restaurant: Dynasty

Location: 40989 Big Bear Boulevard (Big Bear City)

Type of restaurant: Chinese

Dynasty Big Bear

We stipulated: Spending a few days up at Big Bear, where the restaurant pickings are slim, we were looking for a good Thai restaurant. They don't seem to exist there. So we went the Chinese route.

Dynasty Big Bear

They stipulated: "Authentic Chinese Szechuan Cuisine." Accepts reservations, walk-ins or carry out.

Dynasty Big Bear

What we ordered: Dumplings ($7.95); Eggplant Szechuan style ($8.95); Spicy Chili Pepper Chicken ($11.95); Steamed Fish Fillet in Thai-Style Lemon Sauce ($13.95)

Dynasty Big Bear

High point: The spicy pepper chicken was quite tasty.

Low point: The lack of service and the wait. We ordered for pickup. Arrived 20 minutes after ordering. Proceeded to wait ANOTHER HOUR for our food.

Dynasty Big Bear

Overall impression: The wait was absolutely ridiculous, and came with no apology or attempt to make it up to us. Ruined what might have otherwise been a good experience.

Chance we'll go back: Thankfully we don't like in Big Bear, as we'd probably have to return, just because there are few food options up there. But we don't, so we won't.

An hour wait with no acknowledgment of such a massive and total fail!? The patience of saints, you two. I'd've bailed out after 14 minutes and 59 seconds -- perhaps tearing up a menu to shreds on my way out for emphasis. If I ever find myself up in Big Bear I'll consider scrounging the forest floor for berries and grubs before literally wasting my time on this place.
