Always good, wonderful Arni's Jr. salad, great pizza cut in squares, and submarine sandwiches like we remember them at Purdue. We are 'frequent flyers' at Arni's!!!

The food was great. The service this time was not the best we have had. The server was scatterbrained it seemed. The manager was on top of things and brought the things we needed since the server had disappeared for periods of time.

We love Arni’s and eat there almost weekly! The salads are great; I love the pizza! We have friends who have moved out-of-state whose first stop is Arni’s when they return to Indiana!

Don't expect to find Arni's a quiet place or resemble fine dining, and you'll be pleased. It took a while for our waitress to recognize that we had been seated (she looked a bit stunned when she spotted us), but after that, the service was pretty good. They have a decent Stromboli sandwich, but they use crumbled sausage instead of a slab or pattie. We also had a gyro, which would be worth having again. Overall, a pleasant experience.

I had asked to be put in a corner away from everyone because we are a loud group and needed to be able to talk to everyone in our group. They had people in the area they had planned for us when we arrived without any alternative seating plans for us. They seated us late for our reservation and in the middle of the restaurant at a long table so we couldn’t see or talk to each other. The location was ridiculously tight in relation to other tables. They did offer free appetizers for the late seating. Our server was outstanding and the food was good and orders were correct. Not sure I would take a large group there again☹️.

I love the way they cut their toppings. It just makes their pizza and salads taste way better. We will be back!

We made a reservation for 8:30 on Monday night. We got to the location at 8:21 and waited until 8:40. There was no employee at the greeters stand nor did anyone even pass by during that time we were waiting.

In order for us to search for a waiter we would have had to walk into the separated dining room. We tried to look in and while we could see customers there were no employees we could see.

After 20 minutes we figured our business wasn’t that important to them and left and went elsewhere.

Aaron W. was a super sweet and knowledgeable server. We had 9 in our party with multiple checks, which was the only confusion experienced. Overall, the service was slow, but we enjoyed the food and company.

Got a delicious wedge salad; ordered jumbo wings but they didn’t seem jumbo to us and barely any celery. Ordered two pizzas - the bbq chicken seemed to be all cheese not enough sauce. The deluxe pizza was good-could have been hotter.

The pizza and wings were amazing. It did take a long time to get a cookie skillet for dessert, but is was well worth the wait.

Enjoyed the service, food and atmosphere at Arni's to celebrate my 49th birthday. My guess came in at different times with no lack of service when they sat down to take their order. Great place for special occasions for mid-sized groups.

Arni’s food is always good, but man, they have GOT to do something to dampen the noise level in there. That open ceiling design makes it unbearably loud when the place is full with families. Service was very slow, although the server was very nice.

Arni's is a casual, reasonably priced restaurant on the north edge of Indianapolis. It has both a dining area and a bar and a large patio area for outdoor dining. Most of our party got sandwiches; I had the salmon salad and it was very good. Our server was fine although he didn't really go out of his way. Food was served quickly making the wait time very reasonable for a sit-down restaurant.

Arni's has good pizza and a very big outdoor patio, where we also were able to bring our dog. We had a yummy pizza using the yelp offer, a large with up to 5 toppings for $12.99. Our server was a lovely young women who was on the ball!

After a dozen visits in past year - super disappointing. Soup was served cold. Had to constantly “flag-down” our server for service / attention. When I asked for soup to be warmed-up, server admitted I got “the bottom of the bowl.” Really??? Sad experience overall.

Ordered the pizza and bread sticks. Bread stick usually come before the meal, waitress never got them to me till after the main course was served. By the time i got them they were look warm. They still charged me for them, should be a no brainier to take them off the bill if an app come out after the main course.

Our waitress was OUTSTANDING! Food was excellent. Had not eaten at Arni's in a long time. We use to frequent old 86th location because close to our work place. We were in front area by windows. Only thing slightly negative I heard was some folks were cold, little drafty. I would eat there again in a heartbeat!!!
