Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I went to Arni's on Mother's Day for dinner. We got the new Philly Cheese pizza, it was quite yummy, and both had side salads (which were great also). I had the house chardonnay and my husband had a Corona beer, both of which we enjoyed. It was a little loud in the restaurant, but I do understand it is a family restaurant so that is to be expected. Overall, it was a delightful dining experience."

  • "Went at 11am for Mother's Day with a large group, thinking there would be a brunch or special menu, but there wasn't. Menu was sort of Denny's-esque-- glossy plastic with lots of photos. Almost nothing for a pescatarian (vegetarian who eats fish) except veggie pizza or fish tacos. No salmon or other fish offering. (I guess there were a couple of shrimp things too-- a fried shrimp appetizer, and you could add shrimp to a salad.) Overall, it was fine, and all liked their food."

  • "After making our reservation on OpenTable (we have done that 100s of times) for a 6:30 table at Arnies, upon arrival the hostess told us that there would be at least a 45 minute wait. I noted OpenTable and she said "it takes over 20 minutes to change anything on OpenTable for us" and somehow our reservation wasn't to be honored. Fortunately, we agreed to sit in the bar and eventually got seats.. Good place to eat but never had OpenTable process fail like this"

  • "Since this restaurant is so open, the noise level was so loud that, even sitting close to my friend, I could not hear her. There was a girls' basketball team there and they showed a movie that was up so loud it was quite annoying. I don't begrudge the team at all, but management should know better. However, food was fair (sandwiches) to great (Firecracker Shrimp) and our waitress did a terrific job (even tho' the restaurant was PACKED) keeping drinks refilled!"

  • "When you eat at Arni's you can find something that you will enjoy. The menu is large enough where even the pickiest eater will find they like. While the pizzas and salads are excellent, there are many other choices that are also excellent. Our group has eaten here three years in a row and those who have not been here before are going back. In addition there is a great bar. If you have not been here, you owe it o yourself to go."

  • "We had great service, despite how busy the restaurant was. We love the great pizza there (you can't go wrong with any of the pizzas). My wife isn't a big pizza person, but even she liked it."

  • "We visit Arni's a few times a year. The restaurant has a great variety of food items and I have never had anything that I did not like. This time I got the Club and it was almost too big to get my mouth around. Vert nice taste. My daughter got the chicken strips and sweet potato fries (which have a great taste), My wife a great salad. Nice experience."

  • "My friend & I split a small pizza & had 2 salads, all of which were tasty! The only negatives would be that it took a while both to get our orders taken and to get our food, partly due to the fact that it did get busy there."

  • "Reservations are easy to make and they are always ready for us. Waitresses always on top of it and do not seem frazzled at all by the larger groups....always friendly and provide the best of service."

  • "Food was very good but soup was delivered to the table warm not hot. The 4 people who order it did not ask for it to be heated since they were hungry and didn't want to wait. If I had ordered the soup I would have sent it back to be warmed. Rest of the food was very good."

  • "We had a gender reveal party for our second baby with 15 guests at Arni's. They had the table ready to go within 5 minutes of our arrival and several of the waitresses came over to congratulate us after we announced it was a girl. We had three babies present at the event, so the speed with which the food was delivered was greatly appreciated!"

  • "Overall, Arni's was just ok. It took a long time for our food and the burger was good but not fantastic. Overall, neither my family nor I were that impressed. I suppose it took a long time because we had a party fo 6 and the place was packed, but I honestly don't think I would return."

  • "Arni's is always the "eat out on your birthday choice" of my son, and other members of the family. Go early so you don't have to wait as long, but it is all worth it. The wait staff is courteous without being pushy, and the menu is packed with many entree choices I would recommend."

All of the staff were extremely accommodating and our server was outstanding with this bunch of people! Food as usual was great. Everyone loved the chili cheese fries appetizer. Salads, sandwiches and pizzas were good as expected. The picky-eater toddler loved his chicken dinosaurs. We'll always return to Arni's."
