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.

The steak was really good. The pasta was a bit overcooke,d and the pomodoro sauce was just okay. They were generous on the chicken in the sauce though, a nice big chicken breast. The kids menu including macaroni and cheese very similar if not Kraft - which is great for non-adventurous kids. The staff was really nice but the time... More

We needed to eat on our way home from Big Bear and my friend suggested we try Blondie's. They have plenty of parking and we were seated right away. The food came out promptly. I had a turkey wrap with cold slaw. It was tasty and made of quality ingredients. Not your typical greasy spoon which is what you would... More

We stopped here for dinner on our two night stay in Running Springs. We had calamari, bbq ribs, kahlua pork and salmon - all were delicious. The slaw and avocado sides were a great balance with the BBQ. My husband had the grilled corn - one large ear cooked on the grill...Yum. Lots of food and great service.

Thank Hilary D

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.
