"Is this your first visit to Arties?" asked the 20-something waitperson. "Been coming here since before you were born..." The halibut was fish of the day and we both grabbed it (not sharing), split a field green and two Sweetwater IPA's. Prompt service, pleasant and clean. Still $80 for lunch is pushing our window. Love the place but just getting... More

Me and my husband went there several times. We had a dinner and we had evening happy hours. The place is super friendly and cozy. The food is fantastic. Everyone feels like at home.

Artie's has the best salmon around! Whether you want it with eggs during brunch hours or for lunch or dinner, they have it! It is by far my favorite of the Great American restaurants. Excellent atmosphere- can get loud but there are more private booths if needed. The bar is a nice size with tvs. Friendly service!

I had the crab cake with poached egg and Hollandaise sauce and my guest had the chicken & waffles which great with our Grand Mimosa's. This was my third visit and the quality of the food and service is always consistent. Looking forward... More

This is another in the GAR chain along with coastal flats and Sweetwater. We tried Arties for the first time and were not disappointed. I had a ceasar salad with the drunken ribeye which was a great cut of meat. The firecracker shrimp and tex mex egg rolls are also items that shouldn't be missed. Restaurant was clean and we... More

Arties consistently serves up great food and great service. The brunch selections offer both breakfast and lunch. Consider making reservations on weekends as this is a local favorite and can get quite busy.

Artie's which is part of the local Great American Restaurant chain is a fantastic restaurant. I'd rather have a steak there than Morton's or Ruth's Chris, it's a far better deal and the food is always perfect and the service is outstanding. I've never had anything bad at this restaurant. Don't miss their bread basket ask for the fried rolls... More
