Other than the location... there is nothing to be desired of Woody's Boathouse. The service was horrible... One waitress was incredibly rude. The lady who initially got our drinks was nice but when she brought our Calamari appetizers (we ordered two) she told us the kitchen had actually tried to split ONE order into two and told her to say...

We had read the reviews and anticipated that service would not be good, and the restaurant lived up to its reputation. We don't understand who they don't solve the service problem since it is a constant complaint from everyone. We were the second group to be seated and even then they were slow in getting to us. When the food... More

We arrived and waited at the front desk for 10 minutes just to be acknowledged (staff busily rushing around us). Hostess/Manager? Asked how many were in our party, we said 5 and requested the patio. She apologized and said that the patio closes at 5 pm (it was 8pm), but it would just be a few minutes to be seated.... More

Only thing they have going for it was the location, with inspiring views of the lake. We were seated by a busser after waiting ten minutes by the entrance. We waited another ten, before being approached by a server, who was actually nice. Seated inside nearby us, was a corporate luncheon of 20 people. This sucked all the relaxation out... More

Went in for lunch and after standing in the entryway for well over 5 minutes a staff person who was sitting at a table in the bar came over and said " Just sit down anywhere" There were diners at only 2 other tables ( we probably should have taken that hint.) We sat down and waited and waited and... More

Family of 4 ate there at noon on a Tuesday. Hardly anyone else was in the restaurant, yet the service was extremely slow. Food was below average- a simple kid's hamburger had no flavor, and the bun was stale. The special advertised is the all-you-can-eat salad bar, but we did not order it based on the limited and poor selection... More

Cannot rate this restaurant more than average. Service was very slow. The food was adequate. Definitely would not eat dinner at this restaurant on our next visit to Lake Arrowhead. Lunch might be better.

To start with, we had to wait 20 minutes at 2 pm on a Saturday. The main reason for the wait was the complete lack of organization on the part of the hostess. She really did not know what was going on. After walking around outside for the 20 minutes and I had to show the hostess where there was... More

The salad bar is a great buy. Lots of variety. Have club meetings there so visit frequently. They have improved over the years. Started going when they first opened
