Where to Eat in Lake Havasu City: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 15, 2018 Randal Brittian

Shimmering Lake Havasu, the centerpoint of Lake Havasu City, was formed in 1938 after the Parker Dam was built. It is perhaps most famous for the London Bridge that looms above it. Yes, the actual London Bridge, bought by the area's founding father, Robert McCullough, for $2,460,000, after the city of London put it up for auction in 1968. Today, Lake Havasu City is one of the most popular vacation destinations in Arizona and offers a range of recreational activities for families, couples and single travelers. Golf on championship courses, soak up the sun on the shores of Lake Havasu's beaches or explore nearby parks by foot and bicycle. Houseboats dot the lake and are available for rent along with paddle boats, kayaks, jet skis and other types of water sports equipment. Like most resort towns Lake Havasu is chock-full of hotels, restaurants, shops and non-stop action.

Cha-Bones

Reviewed By amanda5805 - Duncan, Canada

we were in Lake havasu visiting my mother and father-in-law. They had been taking us to all of their favorite places. We were going to the market and then to Cha-Bones for lunch. We called to get out name on the waiting list and walked around the market until they called us to let us know out table was ready. What a nice touch! Sunday has happy hour from 11am-6pm. Bloody Mary's & highball $3.99. $2 beers and $4.99 burger & fries! Really great prices if you are on a budget. The regular menu was a bit more but everything was deleicous. We assumed this was going to be a fancy restaurant with its low lighting and appearance but really most ppl are ther in the t-shirts & shorts. The food is pub style nothing to fancy but OMG its so delicious! Everything was done very well. My mother and father-in-law both had the burger special, bloody mary & a beer. They were very happy with it and mentioned it is always consistly good. We had the parmesan crusted 3 cheese grilled cheese sandwich and the best prime rib french dip. It shows up looking boring but WOW it blew me away. So much flavor. They brought the dessert tray over. Another really nice touch and made it easy to deside to get dessert. Everything looked amazing. We ended up with this amazing choclate thing (cant remember the name but there is a picture below) and the oeanut butter cheese cake with pretzels. Both incredible! The service was good but very busy so they didnt check in on you to much. Everything was very clean! Glad we tried this place and cant wait to go back next time we are in Lake Havasu!

Excellent food and service! Huge menu made it hard to decide what to have- I had the “grown up grilled cheese- it was delicious! My friend had the Cobb salad which was also perfect. We split an order of mozzarella sticks- excellent taste with perfect crunch. Service was excellent as well. I would go back- we went between lunch and dinner, but the breakfast offerings looked yummy!

We were staying at resort for 2 nights over the Christmas holidays. They had a special Christmas Buffet. Soup/ Salad/Dessert Buffet then you ordered main entrée from limited menu. When we got there the Ham was finished and off the menu. I ordered the Salmon which was very good, served on a bed of rice. My husband had the
Chicken Marsala which he said was excellent. The service was friendly. Overall a good experience. Price was reasonable considering it was a special menu.

College Street Brewhouse & Pub

Reviewed By Loves2Kayak - Celina, Ohio

Was shocked while seated at the bar on what poor service we received and not very friendly. We were all interested in trying the beers after hearing how good they were, but never got the chance. Ended up having one and waited with empty glasses for a long time - finally managed to get the bill and left. Also, I was uncomfortable having to sit next to a child (around 7) at the bar. Not sure what the law is in AZ, thought it was inappropriate.

Black Bear Diner

Reviewed By mvenaas - Oswego, IL

Black Bear diner is a popular place in Lake Havasu, primarily because they essentially serve portion sizes that would feed a bear. We have been several times for breakfast when we visit family in the area and I have tried several different breakfast options. I would rate the food quality and service as OK, but honestly would not choose to come back here if given a choice.
