Pretty good food, dinner service bad

We ate hear at the buffet for breakfast and from the breakfast menu and the food was pretty good. Food at dinner was good but the service was dreadful. It took over an hour to get our food and another hour to get out of there - this with 2 small children is not ok. They dimmed the lights at... read more

Had happy hour, dinner, and breakfast here. Each time the food arrived very cold. Steamed vegies and mashed potatoes should never be served cold. Funny thing is that the plates were always scalding hot!

The last time we were here at The Lake Arrowhead Resort was a couple of years ago. We knew what to expect as far as the accommodations (which are mid-level) but remembered the restaurant, Bin 189, as being exceptional. Well, things have changed and not for the better. We arrived yesterday and ate dinner in the restaurant. The menu is... More

Screwed up 40% of our order. Poor Quality Control. Very disappointing. Food was good but 40% of our party had to wait while we ate. Not a well run establishment.

Bin 189 is the restaurant located at the Lake Arrowhead Resort. It is the best eats in town. If you are staying at the resort don't bother eating anywhere else. If you are staying elsewhere in Lake Arrowhead (a mistake), have as many meals there as you can. The Blu Cheese Burger is great for lunch and anything is fantastic... More

Lunched here twice in the last 3 years. The lobby and entrance and the space of the restaurant itself are quite large, but still welcoming and cozy. Nice large bar, good display. And very good martinis. The decoration of the common areas is interesting yet unimposing. First trip which was in-season we ate on the patio overlooking the lake. Our... More

We went to Bin 189 for Sunday brunch which is basically your choice of breakfast or lunch. The place was mostly empty. It took 10 minutes before or waitress showed up and almost half an hour after we ordered for the food to show up. The waitress then disappeared so tough to get the water re-filled. They have serious management... More

We have never complained this much about any restaurant. The service was horrendous. It took us an hour and a half to receive fish that was terribly overcooked. The chicken noodle soup was basically a dark beef broth with loads of salt. There was nothing nice or fancy about this restaurant. It was on par with Denny's. The server got... More

We have been here many times and have not had a bad meal. The menu changes often enough and the service is good. They have a nice selection of beers and cocktails. Sit outside if weather permits.
