    Immediate greeting from the valet parking attendant and quickly seated for our reserved time. Our server Brianna was excellent, all smiles and provided excellent menu advice. The Manhattan drink was one of my best ever. I had the branzini and my wife the lamb. Both meals were delicious. We shared a chopped salad and glad we did. We took a few extra minutes to look over the collection of Arnold Palmer memorabilia, awesome. We love this place and we will be back.

    Thanksgiving dinner at Arnold Palmer's was a very special treat. The location, ambience, food and service were first class. Besides the customary turkey with all the trimmings, there were other tasty items like salmon, braised short ribs and my choice meatloaf. Of course there were also delicious appetizers and salads too. The desert of pumpkin pie was scrumptious. If you preferred apple pie or flourless chocolate cake then you're in luck to. Our server, Kaitlyn was above and beyond wonderful. She treated us like family.

    We have never been there before and enjoyed the atmosphere. Indoors as it was too cold to go outdoors. But outdoors look like it would be a good place to eat if it was a little warmer. Enjoy the experience very much they have complimentary valet parking

    Great night on the patio with old friends from Canada. Great service as usual from Caesar. Food was spectacular as usual and Mark was in mid season form on the guitar! We had carrot cake for dessert for the first time. Best I have ever had. Thanks to Dustin and team for a great evening of food, drinks and entertainment!

    This was our first time dining at Arnold Palmers. For starters we loved waking in and seeing all of the photos and memorabilia and loved that we could actually hear each other talk without yelling, we asked our server for her recommendations and she was spot on. We started with the calamari. It was delicious! Crunchy, sweet and a little spicy and nice portion size. We had salads, mixed greens and the chopped BLT both nice and great dressings. Then I had the short rib and my husband the prime rib. Both were flavorful and tender. We will definitely be back again.

    This restaurant is very pleasant and comfortable, inside and outside. The outside patio, around the fireplace, is warm and cozy and the best place to dine on a cool evening. The service was outstanding. Our servicer, Briana, was the "best of the best". The menu from start to finish is very nice. Many items to choose, from starters to desserts. The music is terrific along with the Palm Trees, lights, and setups one feels a little like being in Hawaii or the Caribbean Islands. We highly recommend Arnold Palmer's Restaurant for a special dining experience.

    We had a fabulous experience at Arnold Palmers restaurant. The live music was a great addition to the incredible ambience of the outdoor dining experience. With the temperatures around 57, the heaters made outdoor dining very comfortable. We would highly recommend dining here & would love to dine there again if we find ourselves visiting here again!

    We had another lovely dinner with friends. Our gathering started in the bar and then we were seated out on the lovely patio. They have a guitarist serenading us and we had a wonderful time. Thank you to our fabulous waiter Caesar! What is so nice menu wise is you can order a steak, meatloaf, many fish options, chicken and something for everyone! The dates are delicious as a starter….
