Used to go to Arnie's all the time; no more. Way too noisy. Last time I visited with friend at 11:30. By the time 12 rolled around we were leaning into each other & raising our voices to be heard. Never again. Food good but not worth the noise. Not only do I no longer go to Arnies with friends... More

Our evening meal there was a pleasant one. The pick two options that they have cover all the bases, even if they are a bit expensive. The soups were delicious, and I had a chicken pot pie for the first time (which I heartily recommend). The service was pleasant and attentive.

The first time I dined here, we arrived at 11am, hoping to get breakfast. Unfortunately, this restaurant does not serve breakfast all day. So the second time, we made sure we arrived for breakfast. I ordered an omelet and asked that it be made with NO onions. It arrived, but made wrong. When I mentioned this to our waitress, she... More

The 5 Guys is attached to the NW side of the building!! So nice to get grilled fish instead of deep fried. Nice sauce on the tacos. Not to zippy. Highly recommend the Oreo cupcake. Nice touch, offering a cupcake with every lunch or dinner! Friends both ordered soup and half sandwich meals. Huge portions.

In the beginning of our visit they could not figure out where to set us. Then they sat us all the way in the back of the restaurant which wasn't even half full. The table they picked was dirty. The waiter was slow to even come to our table. When we got coffee he did not come back to ask... More

In town for work & wanted to try this place. The reviews were great. When I arrived at the address, the location is now a 5 Guys Burgers. I like 5 guys, but was disappointed I wasn't able to try Arnie's.

Arnie's was a great choice. We stopped in for a mid-day lunch and found a nice quiet atmosphere with several patrons enjoying the variety of choices on the menu. A few in our group enjoyed the standard hamburger and fries, while the half of wrap was delicious but huge (had to save room for the free cupcake included with all... More

This is a local place that has not only a variety of meals, but baked goods as well that can be purchased whether or not you eat in the restaurant. Their baked goods are freshly made there. There is usually a wait to be seated, but we happened to get there at a time with no waiting. The food is... More

Order fish taco salad, and got 3 nice big pieces of fish. My friend ordered oriental chicken salad, and it was so big she told 1/2 home. Nice a friendly staff and liked the ability to get ice cream from the si day bar instead of a cupcake.
