Arnies in Mukilteo, Washington, offers diners a beautiful view of the mountains while they enjoy seasonal Pacific Northwest cuisine. Arnies has been serving brunch, lunch and dinner to hungry guests for over two decades, in addition to an early-bird dinner service that includes a prix fixe menu.
The menu at Arnies changes to reflect seasonal fare, but guests frequently enjoy clam chowder, shrimp cocktail, pit roasted salmon or seafood fettuccini. Brunch offerings include seafood crepes and Tillamook cheddar and honey ham scrambles. Kids will love the �First Mates� menu, filled with fried prawns, burgers and chicken strips. Don�t leave without a classic root beer float or a hot apple cider in cooler weather.
A good place for an Edmonds person to meet a friend from Whidbey Island. My friend travels 20 miles down the island then walks on the ferry. I drive to Mukilteo. Most often the noise level at noon is fairly reasonable for friends "catching up".
We had a reservation and were seated right on time. It was 35 minutes before anyone came to our table to greet us and ask if we would like something to drink. The drinks and bread were served in a timely manner.
Of the two dinners, one was OK and one was less than OK. The serving size of the marginal one was small, and the sauce overpowered the fish and vegetables.
After our dinner was served, nobody came to our table to ask if there was anything else we needed. Our water glasses were never refilled. We were never asked if we would like a second drink.
We have been going to Arnie's for over 35 years. It will probably be a very long time before we try it again.
I always go to Arnies when I have friends in town.
We --4 friends-often go to Arnies. We love the view and the food and moderate prices. We are always treated well and Ryan, our server was most gracious!
We went to Arnie's after a golf game on the spur of the moment - -got a table with a water view , half-circle booth style. The waitstaff was very attentive and responsive to our many requests. The food was terrific, two linguinie w/shrimp and one fish w/root veggies, really good. It was slightly noisy but was able converse easily. Nice decor, long-established place, would recommend.
Generally Arnie's is great; this time not so much - the food really wasn't very good. Way too salty, not worth the money it cost. I'll go back of course because previous experiences have been fine, but this one was a disappointment. It was also very very cold - made for an uncomfortable evening.
I took my wife on a date to this establishment. The food was absolutely amazing. We had oyster shooters and calamari for appetizers and finished with a main course of steak. I had prime rib (14 oz. Cut) and she had the flank steak. Both cooked to perfection served with generous sides. Cocktails were on point! I went with the ol' trusty captain and sprite while the wife had a ghost pepper margarita that she loved!! We happened to catch mukilteo during the annual lighthouse festival which surprised us with an evening fireworks how that made the night that much better!! To top it all off the service was the best I've had in quite some time!!
Always a dependable place for very good seafood. We both had the scallops and they were perfectly cooked. The accompanying risotto and asparagus spears were perfectly matched to the scallops. Also, don't miss the crab and artichoke dip ... yummy. We opted to eat in the bar and service was bar standard, NOT restaurant standard.
Creatively prepared dishes. Excellent service.
