This restaurant is located is a super place next to the shore of Lake Arrowhead, CA. But the food for the last couple of years has been poor at best. Long waits from staff and poor food prep and quality. This used to be a very nice steak house style restaurant but now is like a denny's menu taste. Owners... More

We stopped here for lunch. Service was okay. The salad bar was a pleasant surprise and the soups were great too. The view is very nice as it is on the lake front. The interior atmosphere can be greatly improved though. it is dated.

My first time to visit lake Arrowhead area which was unimaginable to get out of Los Angles to such beautiful place in the mountain at about elevation of 7000 feet. We had brunch consisting of everything one wants to eat and complimented by champagne. View from the restaurant overlooking the lake was great. Menu was pretty comprehensive. I really enjoyed...

This restaurant has nice lake views and the pizza was above average but I will not be back. Dated decor, slow service, and unsanitary dining room! Just after we ordered our meal three women were seated in the next table with a DOG. Not on a carrier, not hidden away, just sitting on the seat. They feed the dog from... More

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
