Stone Creek Bistro

Reviewed By mlangh0lz - Brightwaters, New York

An interesting menu and the food was well-prepared. Kind of a rustic decor. Service was excellent. The charcuterie appetizer was bigger than expected and very good. All entrees were tasty. Call ahead for reservations, because there aren't many tables and this place is popular.

Great dining at this restaurant. Menu varied from pasta to steaks. The pasta I had, Chicken Penne Gorgonzola, was delicious. Wait staff very attentive and helpful.

Loueddie's Pizza

Reviewed By lesnoriel - Duarte, California

It's hard to find good Pizza in the mountain communities so it was a revelation when LouEddies opened in Skyforest. During the summer/Spring months, there is plenty of outdoor seating under the trees. The open air atmosphere is fantastic and the food is great. However in the colder months, seating is limited to indoor in their small dining room. They will do take out which has been a lifesaver during the winter months. I've driven through the deep snow just to bring home a fresh hot pizza from LouEddies.

Starbucks

Reviewed By LG_Weinman - La Quinta, California

I'm not a regular coffee drinker and when I do partake Starbucks is usually not my choice. I find nothing special or even appealing about Starbucks coffee.

That being said this location (inside the Jensen's market) was clean, had lots of seating, and Jensen's has a wonderful bakery right next to the coffee.

Love to stop here for a relaxing cup of Coffee or Tea, I have purchased alot of Tea to go home, they sell so many different kinds and blends. Wonderful selection!

Original Cottage the Family Restaurant

Reviewed By Sara S - Blue Jay, California, United States

Yum, I love getting takeout food from the Cottage on a Sunday night ( I work Thusday through Sunday.) their pizza is terrific, the chicken piccata with real mashed potatoes and fresh veggies is delicious! Salads are fresh, so is the bread, and it's never-ending when you eat in the restaurant, if you're so inclined.

Cedar Glen Malt Shop

Reviewed By ZProf - Lake Arrowhead, California

This is a wonderful family run right out of the fifties burger and malt shop. After several weeks of trying to shed a few pounds, I had a craving for a great burger. So my friend and I ended up here for lunch. When we arrived they were completely full but a table opened up within just a few minutes. The table was cleaned and wiped down promptly and within just a few minutes our server had taken our order and delivered our drinks. Within ten minutes my 57 Chevy burger, medium, with extra sauce, onion rings and ice tea and my friend’s Turkey sandwich were delivered.

The burger was cooked perfectly and very juicy. If you are not the type that is ok with having a burger dripping with juice and messy when eating, then don’t order a burger here. If, however, you want an outstanding burger perfectly cooked, dripping with juice and don’t mind a mess, then this is your place. The roll of paper towels right on the table will help keep your fingers clean. They have a burger for every taste, from the basic burger without cheese, a chili burger to a pastrami or blue cheese and bacon burger. Their onion rings are a must for any onion ring lover. My friend said his Turkey sandwich was great too. It was packed with meat. Unfortunately, neither of us had a malt on this visit, but I can tell you their malts (mocha malt is my favorite) and shakes are just as good, made with real ice cream and malt. If you want a seat right away, suggest you go mid-afternoon during the summer, otherwise you might have a short wait, but it is well worth it. Gotta go now and run a few miles. LOL.

Hortencia's Mexican Grill

Reviewed By Alisa G - Blue Jay

Hortencia's (and she is a real, live woman who owns and works in her restaurant) is wonderful!!! So many excellent choices - ALL of them good. The question below "When did you travel?" is inaccurate. We eat at Hortensia's in Skyforest AND at the Cliffhanger at LEAST once a week (and on some guilty-pleasure weeks...3-4 times).

Great prices, great service, great people, wonderful views from either restaurant, and excellent food!!!

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Reviewed By novakain - Beaumont, California

It's chocolate!!
They simply do it best
We visited yesterday and just happen to get fresh chocolate covered strawberries for my girl and one for me.
I wish they had the salted Carmel and chocolate pretzel sticks!
Anyway, always a special treat when we come to the village
