This popular eatery was established in 1982 and has become one of the icon businesses in the Lake Arrowhead Village. Visitors from throughout California and around the world visit the Belgian Waffle Works for their wonderful meals and delicious waffles.Lake Arrowhead is located in the mountains of Southern California which is just 90 miles east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino Mountains. Lake Arrowhead is a manmade reservoir that was originally intended to serve as part of a major waterworks project to provide irrigation water to the San Bernardino Valley. Construction of the Lake Arrowhead Dam began in 1904 but was halted due to litigation. Construction of the dam was finally completed in 1922 by the Arrowhead Lake Company, as part of a plan to develop the area into a resort. The resort became a paradise of outdoor recreation and year-round beauty as well as the vacation destination of many movie stars and visitors.During 1979 the Lake Arrowhead Village went though a major renovation and was burned to the ground and rebuilt with the grand opening in 1981. In 1982 the Belgian Waffle Works opened the first “dockside” business in the Lake Arrowhead Village and has an outdoor patio that overlooks beautiful Lake Arrowhead.
