Sometime you need just a little something and have to have Mc Donalds. I agree. The other thing is that it is cheaper than other local spots in the area to eat. Ive been here several time and never a problem.Good place to run in if you dont want to sit down and eat or just grab a hot coffee... More

About the only item that both my good friend and I really like is the fish sandwich at McDonalds. But the sandwich must be ordered fresh from the fryer, otherwise the sandwich comes from the heat lamp and the fish square is barely warm and the bun is rubbery. But when ordered fresh from the fryer, the fish is hot... More

For reasons best left to left to the town fathers, Lake Arrowhead Village was deliberately burned to the ground with the exception of one building in the late seventies. Out of the ashes rose a monstrosity of pseudo-Alpine kitsch. That said, if you're here to get away from LA and you're on a budget, don't hesitate to go. The village... More

A McDonald's with a view of Lake Arrowhead? Yep! There are stools on the lake side where you can see the lake. This McDonald's even had a small fireplace! We were all in need of cold drinks, a snack, and a bathroom, so this was the perfect spot to stop.

A tiny McDonalds which is designed more for drive-thru than eat-in. It is possible to walk inside but seating (outside) is limited. Standard McDonald's menu. Features Drive-thru club which many stores do not.

It's an older and smaller restaurant but the service and the food are up to par. In addition, the servers are extremely friendly. Noticed one odd thing, the Quarter Pounder with Cheese is 10 cents less than the Mickey D's in nearly Lake Arrowhead Village.

We did takeout breakfast two mornings in a row while stay at Lake Arrowhead. This particular store really had it's act together. They were fast, friendly, and efficient. To top it off, a great location on the lake!

The food is average. All McDonalds are alike, but what I liked about this place is the view of the lake.

While I have never been a fan of fast food, and my very first time ever in a McDonald's was in Beijing, China, a forced visit on my itinerary due to a business concern, I have to admit that the McDonald's at Lake Arrowhead met all of our needs. It was available, fast service, good food, and extremely good value... More
