“I love their specials”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We love to go there. We always have one of the specials. One sounds even more delicious than the others. We have never been disappointed. The prices are reasonable.

“An Exceptional Place to eat”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Place to be is one of our favorite places to eat in Lake Havasu City! It is a small Bistro-type restaurant, with an impressive menu. Everything from the appetizers to the marvelous, unusual soups, salads and sandwiches are delicious! The dinner menu is exceptional. Place To Be is a family-run place. The chef (son) is culinary school trained, with amazing recipes in his repertoire
Every time we eat there, we feel like we're in New York at one of the best restaurants. Finally, a no-nonsense restaurant in Havasu that isn't Mexican or Chinese!!!

I had the Buffalo chicken salad. Wonderful flavor with crisp lettuce. My husband had a huge burger with banana bread beer which he thoroughly enjoyed

“Great Food - Great Service - Interesting Prints and Decor!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

"Place to Be" is a bistro style liitle place at 171 Swanson Avenue in Lake Havasu City, Arizona near London Bridge. The food was a unique version of traditional Bistro faire. The pulled Pork Sandwich with Root Beer sauce, red onions and apple cold slaw was a fantastic blend of flavors! My wife had an Italian Sub that was also very good. The pulled pork sandwich may be the best I have ever had, perhaps as good as Tom's Bar-B Que in Mesa. There were many interesting prints and photographs on the walls including one of a saguaro catus in a desert scene done in the style of Van Gough. The restaurant was very clean. Service was attentive and the customers seemed to be a cut above the usual California groups found on and in Lake Havasu. If they had some good music playing I would have rated them excellent.

“The food is fantastic!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Our friends told us the Place To Be had super food and it would be worth a visit .... so we went there today with our friends.

They were right!! The food far exceeds "pub grub." There are special foods every day and some of these only come up every couple of weeks so folks come for specific meals. Today, the offerings included a pull pork with apple slaw on Kaiser roll, the Place to Be grilled pizza with pulled pork. All of the food -- YES, we shared each dish around the table so we all could enjoy! -- was fantastic! The service was very good and the staff was friendly and helpful.
BTW - prices were reasonable!! For 4 adults, the total bill was just over $50.

We will definitely go to the PLACE TO BE when we get back to Lake Havasu City.
