Best meatloaf I've ever had. I had mine served with the mac and cheese instead of mashed potatoes. The meatloaf was served like a Filet with a bacon wrap, it was fab. It took a while to get the food but I must say it...More

Of the 9 of us, 8 different meals we enjoyed this evening. Everyone was licking their lips as glasses were kept full and service was attentive. Great spot but at dinner time reservations will keep you a table.

This was my best meal during the week I was in Havasu. Fantastic roast pork shank with mashed potatoes.

Place To Be is a small restaurant with a limited menu. It has interesting specials everyday and the food is very good and fairly priced. The risotto is excellent and their pulled pork is above average. The children's menu is more than adequate.

Very good food. The Philly Cheesesteak sandwich was awesome and the fries tasted fresh-cut. They have a menu of the day that is supposed to be fun, but didn't try it on this trip.
