Total ripoff! First, the waiter got all snobby with us because we ordered a Sam Adams instead of one of their beers. Very limited menu. I had a crab cake $10.00, and a salad $12.00, which was a hunk of romaine, 2 cherry tomatoes and...More

I had the Vermonter sandwich and my wife had the pulled pork. We both left full and satisfied. We sat on the patio and it was a great spot to sit and relax after a day of touring around.

Arvads is a nice restaurant. The food is good, the atmosphere is quiet, and the service is friendly. I've had the Reuben and the BBQ sandwich here...the Reuben is the better of the two. The sweet potato fries are good, and they feature local beers...More
