Went with some friends for dinner. We ordered chicken fried steak, pork chop, grilled salad, steak and chicken dinners. Food was super. Server was great! However, the owner was drunk and made us feel rather uncomfortable. It was sort of embarrassing.

Overall dining experience is very nice and delicious! There are many different food selections. However, they are very pricey, especially for many of the locals who would like to dine in more often at an more affordable rate.

Our Restaurant is the go-to for the best food between Big Bear and Running Springs; conveniently located in Arrowbear just up Highway 18 from Lake Arrowhead and Running Springs, right on your way to Big Bear! We are a family style restaurant featuring the freshest homemade food on the mountain. Blondie’s is great for kids and groups and gladly accept reservations, walk-ins and take out!

We feature breakfast every weekend. So stop in before hitting the slopes or hanging at the lake and try our amazing eggs benedict, full and fresh omelet or spectacular homemade corned beef hash with eggs.
Lunch and Dinner favorites are served 365 days a year! Blondie’s choice “stacked” burgers, sandwiches and wraps, with a side of our signature coleslaw or homemade chips make a great midday meal. No meal would be complete without an appetizer! Our Blonde Bombshells are a must have, featuring fried mashed potato balls with bacon and cheese inside. They truly are the bomb!

End your day in our humble steakhouse offering the best steaks on the mountain or our famous Herb Crusted Slow Roasted Prime Rib. We proudly serve fresh ingredients and cook everything to perfection. You should try our fish! Our meals feature outstanding sauces that all stand out on their own.

Top off that perfect meal with a “Blondie”, hands down, the best brownie anywhere! Then again, our bread pudding is also to die for! The fully-stocked bar can provide you with the cocktail of your choice to enjoy with your meal or apres ski. Be sure to bring your friends and partake in our renowned Ski Shot.
