    We had dinner celebrating our 31 anniversary, very nice location with excellent food and service. We would definitely recommend to family and friends, much looking forward to dinning again when we are in the area.

    We recently sat on the terrace and had a deliciously served cod- simple but flavorful, served with a rice pilaf and lightly cooked green beans with almonds! Yum!

    Being from San Diego, I feel the foodie experience is high. I was a little nervous to eat at a Inn/ Bed and breakfast type place. But my goodness was I wrong. The food here was GREAT! The service was the best service I've witnessed given since COVID in the last few years. I would very much recommend this place for a nice sit down meal.

    Had a 5:30 reservation 7th May, a Friday. We had arrived earlier in the day, around 3:00 and the manager of the hotel kindly let us know that no food was served until 5:00, but we should return at 4:30 when the bar opened and have a drink before dinner. Seated immediately in bar area since we arrived before our scheduled time and dinner wasn’t ready to be served. We had the Lobster Escargot and it was decadently fantastic! The bartender Chris was awesome and ended up being our waiter as well most of the time, since he offered, and we opted, to stay where we were. We ordered the house wine (a Chardonnay for me, which was very good) and a house Manhattan (a specialty of Chris) which hubs loved! Def knew his job extremely well and helped me decide on the Half Duck and it was perfectly made! Hubs got the Short Ribs and although thought they were good, as a “pot roast” (in his words) but did not care for texture as “ribs”. I had suggested for him to get the Jenga ribs, since so many reviewers thought those excellent, but he had declined. His came with the Mac and Cheese was soooo good we ordered an order to go to take back to the cabin! All in all it was a fantastic experience and would highly recommend as well as definitely return again when back at Lake Arrowhead!

    We had the Jenga ribs and although they were really tasty and loaded with yummy sauce, they were too salty. It’s probably part of the dry rub. I’ve seen other comments about this but had to try it anyway. It was true and I like salt. The fries were among the best I ever had - golden brown and crispy rather than undercooked. And even the cole slaw was very good - not too saucy.

    Diane's Saddleback Grill is a cute little place tucked away in Lake Arrowhead, and connected to the Saddleback Inn. On the night of our reservation, the was a solo singer performing classic soft rock, so that was a nice surprise. The ambiance was nice and cozy and the staff was good as well. For our appetizers, we ordered the Lobster Escargot and Calamari. The lobster dish was tasty, but way too salty. the calamari was crispy and the dipping sweet chili dipping sauce was the norm. The basket of bread that was provided had been microwaved, so after a few minutes, the bread was a rubbery mess. For our entrees, we order the Short Rib Ravioli w/ Portabello Mushroom Cream Sauce, and the Cowboy Rib Eye. The ravioli were very different, but tasty. The cream sauce was okay, but again, way too salty, and the mushrooms were regular ones, not portabellos. The rib eye on the other hand, was great. Cooked perfectly, not too fatty, and went well with the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach that came with it. There aren't a ton of nice restaurant options in the area, so I would go back again, but I would just try something different next time.

    Great service! We went right when the restaurant opened and I’m afraid that the lasagne was left over and reheated, as was the braised short rib. The short rib was warm and something braised should be nice and hot. We have been here before and the food has been spot on. The pork schnitzel is delicious! But the service is fabulous. Always so kind and attentive! We will definitely be back!

    The service OK, but there was a lack of staff, so it was taxing our server from giving us the best service. The food is mediocre, and the presentation was not too appetizing. Noise level was OK until they started their Friday night Karaoke. We id not have any problems with the Karaoke being performed by patrons.

    Restaurant was fair, giving benefit of the doubt because there was a lot of snow at the time and limited resources so some dishes we wanted could not be made. I would recommend this restaurant for families or if staying at their hotel that is located upstairs. Could definitely use some freshening up, has a very old not clean feel to it. The napkins are very old and worn out, have seen better days and same with the silverware. My fork was so worn it was only usable as a spoon. Wish it was a better experience. Servers are very nice and polite.

    ! Excellent birthday dinner for us. My husband had the lamb chops and my friend filet mignon. They both melted in their mouths. The service by Amy was more than excellent. Her smile upon greeting was wonderful and made us feel so welcomed. Just sorry she is not there more frequently. Food was presented well and served well timed. Afterwards we were entertain by a local artist ,Tim, with his music. All was a great dining experience for us and we will be back soon.

    Went to Diane’s Saddleback Grill for our anniversary. We hadn’t been there for a couple of years and were really pleased with our dinner. The food was delicious!

    We are new homeowners to Lake Arrowhead and although we’ve vacation there for many years, we had never dined at this terrific establishment that has been here since the early 1900s. The service was impeccable-our server was fantastic and very helpful when dissecting the menu with all their wonderful choices. There are some old school favorites as well as more contemporary dishes for example I had the vegetable Napoleon which was delicious and my husband had the calamari steak almandine which he loved. The first course salads were delicious. Looking forward to many more meals at Diane’s Saddleback Grill.

    We have eaten at the Saddleback Inn at least a half dozen times and really enjoy the ambience. However, the bar area is just steps away from the dining area which tends to be quite noisy! Food is very good but a little pricey!
