The Arthur J
When you combine our ability to source the best beef in the world, cooking with an incredible natural wood fire grill, and friendly thoughtful service, an incredible quality steak is born.
This is why we offer the best USDA Prime, True Japanese Wagyu, and Black Angus Beef.
Unlike most pedestrian steak houses, Each one of our Steaks is cooked skillfully by our Grill Master over a stoked live fire with smoking white oak embers.
Our steaks are available both wet-and dry-aged and well as Bone-in, grilled to perfection our magnificent J&R Woodfire Grill.

What Insiders Are Saying
When you're near Manhattan Beach and the mood for steak, The Arthur J is your answer.
Thoroughly Enjoyed The Arthur J for my SO’s birthday dinner! Oysters and scallops outstanding (also love Fishing with Dynamite so appreciate that partnership), mouth watering Wagu and Ribeye, and my teenager devoured the salmon. Our server and all service was top notch, engaged and attentive. Will go back in a heartbeat.
They ran out of prime rib and chocolate mousse by 7:45 so that was disappointing.
Great food and excellent service. Amy was one of the best servers we've had! Attentive, knew menu inside and out - gave best recommendations - spot on!!!! Fun ambiance for date night with my hubby on a Saturday night! Would definitely go back :)
Went here for the first time for my sweethearts birthday. They were SO nice and I loved the personalized bday card and candles on our champagnes glasses. Nice touch! The managers and waitress continuously asked if we enjoyed the meal. And we did! GREAT STEAKS!! Will for sure dine here again! Thank you Arthu Js 👍🏾
Will be back!
Awesome steak cooked perfectly. Great appetizers and sides. Loved the classic rock background music
What a great restaurant. First class service - beautiful room - absolutely great food.
This was our second time visiting this restaurant (both special occasions - (1) Son's graduation (2) Wife's birthday) and it didn't disappoint. AMAZING food and incredible service! We'll definitely be coming back again soon!
I have had many a Steak in my life, but the Filet was the best I have ever had! My wife loved the béarnaise sauce, but frankly it would have been a crime to put anything on the steak I got. It's expensive, but well worth it. The noise levels can be a little high for some, so if you are hard of hearing, you may be a little annoyed.
The food is fantastic. Very nice service and atmosphere. Well priced for the quality of the food.
Everything was good, my Meat was a little bit overcoocked, but staff did a great job for compensate Watling time and all.
The food was excellent, as usual, but we were celebrating our anniversary so being greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco and a handwritten note which included signatures from the entire waitstaff working that evening was super impressive! Top Notch Service!
I don't eat steak very often, but this place is a good one to go to if you're craving some meat!
Celebrated husband's birthday the day after Thanksgiving. We were all still very full of Turkey but the everything we so tasty we stuffed ourselves again. The steaks are one of the best tasting steaks we have had the pleasure of eating and we've been to all the big name steakhouses.
Seafood pasta was exceptional as was the beef fat fries. Definitely returning.
So I picked this restaurant due to it’s location and reviews, not been to Manhattan for a while as we now live in OC. Was looking forward to a Ribeye all day and at $58, I was expecting a good one.
Unfortunately, the Steak feel way short of what I had expected, in fact, I didn’t even end up with the Ribeye I ordered but a Fillet! The table next to us, who sat down after us and got served before us looked like they got our order (they had already sent someone’s dish to us before we had ordered so it’s clear they aren’t that organized) I didn’t say anything, I’m diabetic and had already chased our order twice, I was beside myself when it finally arrived and just needed to eat at that point.
Service was with a smile, our waitress save I wasn’t impressed I guess.
As for the venue, it’s ok, little too noisy that I prefer especially when catching up with a friend I haven’t seen for a while.
$300+ later, I won’t be heading back. Sorry.
been several times - not the best meal, either lesser service this time or didn't like the tomahawk?
The Arthur J is my favorite restaurant in the entire world.
From the host to the waitstaff our experience was excellent. The food was perfectly cooked. Our waiter Meagan was very knowledgeable about all the entire menu and very helpful with the wine selections. Will definitely go back and recommend.
Very busy on a Thursday night, which meant very loud and crowded. Waiter was great. Caesar salad was wonderful, and the Steak Frites was decent. Everyone in our party seemed to enjoy their meals.
The food and service here was excellent. I went with my friend for my birthday and the staff gave me a signed card, I thought that was really sweet. We ordered steaks and they were delicious, as was everything we ordered including our cocktails and dessert. Parking was horrible unfortunately due to a special event, but I called and they held my reservation even though we we’re having a hard time finding parking and the hostess I spoke to was so nice on the phone. I plan to take my boyfriend for his birthday in February.
enjoyed the total experience. our hostess Sarah was awesome. She was both helpful and accommodating. Definitely will return
I feel the restaurant experience would be a lot better if it wasn’t so loud due to the restaurant being connected to the bar. Otherwise everything was great!
Very good food...classic, not trendy or creative; generous portions; rather pricey; helpful waitstaff; somewhat noisy...if you like meat and don’t mind paying, it’s a traditional spot
Food and service was amazing. Brought out dessert with candle for birthday girl, very nice touch.
My experience was good but not great. We showed up before our reservation, they kept us waiting 30 minutes past it, for a table . Second time that happens here. Food and drinks,good. Seems the bar is where is happening.
Everything was fantastic! The little touches went a long way with my wife and I. From the initial greeting and happy anniversary wishes, to the card wishing us a happy anniversary signed by the day’s staff, to the complimentary champagne with candles...very nice touches. Service and food were on point as well. Everything was excellent. So happy to have chosen that restaurant. Will be a memorable one.
The quality of the food was amazing. There was something on the menu to accommodate any type of diet. Would definitely recommend the ribeye.
AMAZING! We love this place. Best food ever. Customer service can't be topped. Michael is the BEST!!! Thank you!
Music is a bit loud.
Time to sharpen those steak knives!
Everything else - top notch. Thanks!
Absolutely fantastic dining experience! The rib-eye was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back real soon. The Simms family knows how to do it right as far as food, service, and ambiance goes.
Branding, and the pumpkin cake, were outstanding. Steak was very good as usual. Kale salad was also delicious. Excellent wine list, like how they really rotate the wines by the glass. Cool vibe.
Great food and service. The steak was great and the mash potatoes are a must. It is a bit pricey so be prepared to spend a lot.
We had another great meal with friends at this iconic spot! Creative preparation and exceptional service. Management is present and insured that sevice is exceptional and guests are happy.
This place is absolutely incredible. An amazing wine list, food and service. This will continue to be the place we celebrate special occasions.
While my kids ate incredible portions of steak (which they obviously loved), they said they would come back as starving college students and just eat huge portions of the rolls and mashed potatoes.
Always a great place - good service and local spot ... my only “beef” was the beef, really expensive which is ok by me, but it was only “good”, not great. I’ll go back as it’s a great place for a special night - but I might go filet vs ribeye. Ribeye was guaranteed to be awesome - my “beef”, it was chewy.
A bartender can totally ruin your dining experience, in this case, Courtney. She sighs if you ask a question about the wine or the food, although the glass of wine you're drinking is $25.50 A GLASS! Oh, never mind she had to explain it to you that on a Thursday night they ran out of the $29.50 A GLASS wine! Her time is too value and she literally rolled her eyes and my husband and I and we asked if they had any other Cab on the menu. Charged my husband 4 bourbons instead of 3, which it was corrected by another bartender. Overall, please promote Hassan to her place and send this woman home, clearly not fit to such a caliber restaurant.
Everyone was delightful! I really had a delightful evening.
Great place for a memorable meal. Service and food are excellent! Can be a bit loud during busy time.
We had a wonderful evening. I was pleasantly surprised when we were treated to a round of drinks at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready. That was very much appreciated.
