    Went to Arnie's for Sunday Brunch. It was our first visit to this restaurant and was very pleased with the quality of the food. Also pleased with the little extras during the meal; complimentary cinnamon rolls and complementary orange juice or champagne, nice touch. Definitely would go back again.

    The view and atmosphere are the best part of this dining experience for my birthday. My scallops were cooked nicely, but came with a poached pear that was so hard it was inedible, overlooked green beans and a risotto that lacked interest. Even the dessert tasted like it came from the QFC bakery rather than a pastry chef. Save your money for a better meal and enjoy the view from the deck at happy hour.

    I've been dining at Arnie's for years and have always liked their menu and quality of food. However, I've seen a recent decline in food quality and preparation. For example, the fish & chips has become mostly chips and very small portions of cod, and the chips tasted stale. The seafood salads have become smaller and less fresh tasting as well. Even the bread servings (delicious sourdough) have become meager. Please bring the quality/quantity back to old standards, Arnie's!

    Arnie's is a nice-dining standby in scenic little Mukilteo, terminus of the ferry to Whidbey Island. My cousin and I went there for a birthday lunch, which I specified on my Open Table reservation, and were greeted with "Happy Birthday!" and an invitation to take up my requested window-side table. The service was excellent; food selections included healthy options, and they happily swapped out a rice side dish for a serving of delicious asparagus. Top marks all around!

    Service was good. Food was really, really bad. Strawberry daiquiri was the worst I have ever tasted. Got one sip and had to spit it out right away. Bread was extremely sour. The seafood platter was mostly breading to make the food looks big. Very little food for the price.

    This evening was the celebration of my wife and my 31st year since we met and 30th year since our engagement. Arnie's did not fail us! Our dinners were, as usual, very well prepared. The champagne sauce with my wife's grilled scallops was light and delicate, and her risotto was creamy. The fresh asparagus was cooked perfectly, not over done, which is difficult. The salmon with my seafood grill was better than I can grill at home and that's saying something.

    Popular location Friday nights and weekenda, holidays. Reservations recommended for those times. Food well prpared and tasty. Limited wine list but good selections. View includes ferry terminal and railroad tracks as well as Whidbey Island, scenic but not very romantic. All things considered our party of three was well pleased by our visit.

    We are regulars at Arnies, knowing we'll get good food and service every time. They excel at seafood, from their creamy bisque to their mixed seafood salad to the fresh catch of the season. They have managed to keep several long-time employees, so it's nice to be greeted and served by familiar faces who make sure we're given good service. It also suggests they're good to their staff, which is a plus in my book.

    The reservation process was so easy! I even had to adjust the time of the reservation and that turned out to be just as easy. The service was very good. Beautiful water views! Almost everything tasted fantastic. One person complained their clams tasted fishy, but my clams and another person's were perfect. The crab cakes and calamari were incredible. We will definitely be going back.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Arnies. It was a special occasion, our wedding anniversary, so a special dinner for us. It was a bit more in cost than we usually spend, but well worth it. The food was fantastic, with beautiful presentations. Copper River Salmon was wonderful, and the steak and prawns were great.

    We had the steamed manilla clams to start, and the portion size was not as large as before - but the clams were good. Then we had some salads which were pretty good. We then shared a plate of the Copper river Salmon, which was also very good tasting, but very thin - about 4, maybe 5 ounces total (or around 2 ounces each). For $31, I would have expected at least an 8 ounce portion; especially since that was the size we had gotten in the past with the pit roasted salmon which is around $23. Still, overall a very good experience and excellent service. Out waitress, though young, definitely went out of her way to make sure everything was good.

    Service was prompt and friendly, and the food was good. Arnie's has nice water views from almost every seat. It was quiet enough that I could hear everyone in my party of four without them having to really raise their voice. I had the smoked chicken salad, which was very good, and had enough left to bring home for the next day's lunch. I tried one of the featured spring wines, the Erath Pinot Gris, which was very good, but I would have liked it to be colder than it was. All in all, we had an enjoyable experience and a good meal. Arnie's is a regular go-to spot for me and will continue to be one. I do wish there were coconut prawns, though. :)

    Dining on Mother's Day can be iffy. Arnie's in Mukilteo goes above and beyond to make holidays a great experience. We had a party of eight. Our waiter handled the table with efficiency and he was very pleasant. We didn't feel rushed, and the food was amazing. Thank you Arnie's you made our first Mother's Day without our Mom a great experience. Arnie's was Mom's favorite restaurant.

    We went out to Arnie's the night before Mother's Day. To our surprise, not only was the restaurant packed with people celebrating Mother's Day but it was also prom night. There were numerous large groups of teens. We were seated next to a table of about 10 ordering right before us. I settled in expecting a very long wait and poor service due to how busy the resaurant was that night. However, the service was fantastic. The waitress was pleasant and attententive. Even more amazing because she appeared quite pregnant. I'm sure it was a rough night. She was patient and friendly with the kids as well. The kids seemed to have a great time at dinner too. The food was very good too. We had a table overlooking the water. It was fabulous. Thanks
