Best Food On The Mountain....Hands Down!

Fantastic dining in a casual bistro atmosphere. Outstanding food and value. Don't forget the duck fat fries. Best fries I've EVER had. Not to be missed. Nice wine selection as well.....

Excellent dinner with friends on a Saturday night. We all had the special and it was cooked perfectly. They welcomed our own bottle of wine with a $10 cork fee. Service was spot on and the live music was pleasant. Highly recommend for nice dinner with nice but comfortable ambiance.

My boyfriend is all about food when we travel. We like to ask locals where to eat and we were sent in the direction of The Saddleback Grill. We walk in and instantly were greeted and sat at a table next to the window. The atmosphere is perfect. We started with the lobster pot pie and a couple glasses of... More

We settled for this restaurant after reading many conflicting reviews about restaurants in this area. We were very pleasantly surprised by this location that we dined there two evenings in a row. We ordered salmon which was excellent and mac and cheese for our son which he loved. The braised beef short ribs were exceptionally tender and tasty! Service was... More

Seven of us ate dinner there on Christmas night, thinking there may not be anything else available. My father in-law ordered Mac-n-Cheese with Lobster, it came out 20 minutes later than all the other meals. He took one bite and decided it was not good. When he said something about it to the waiter, the waiter said "I don't care... More

We have a mountain home in Lake Arrowhead, so we decided to give The Saddleback Grill a shot for our Christmas family dinner. We had eaten here under different management. Here's the 4-1-1. Ambience is nice and very comfortable. Received a nice welcome from the manager and we're seated on time for our 6:30 pm dinner. It took our server... More

We went there for Thanksgiving dinner and were very disappointed. The food was mediocre and the service was poor. After we paid the bill all service stopped including water and coffee. After an hour and a half in the restaurant--a fairly modest amount of time I think for a holiday meal--we were asked to vacate the table. On top of... More

My husband have been coming to the Saddleback grill for about 5 years now and we always loved the food and the service. The service is still pretty good (aside from there being no greeter at the entrance to seat us,) but the food has changed since we were up last October. We come here a couple times a year... More
