Love the food at Arnies. We go here for lunch and sometimes dinner. The whitefish is the best around and also love the Arnies Riveria Salad. Those are my favorites. Nice homey atmosphere.

Arnie's has an excellent variety of food to offer, and the Salad/Soup/Sandwich "Select Two" lunch is a great choice with plenty of food and pricing options. Staff is very friendly and helpful (especially Kayla!), while the food is always delicious! To top it off, you...More
