Steakhouse
At The Arthur J, beef is our passion.

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.

We celebrated Our anniversary at The Arthur J last night! Our waitress Stephanie was super attentive and took care of us super fast. She always made sure we were taken care of and didn't need anything. I ordered the ribeye and it was cooked just like I liked it! My wife ordered the filet mignon and it was so soft with the crab topping! It was so flavorful!! They have great quality steaks at The Arthur J!
We ordered asparagus which was tasty but some were not fully cooked. The Mushrooms went perfect with our steaks and were a gift from the staff. Very cute place and lively! Would definitely go back and recommend it.
The staff even gave a a Happy anniversary card signed by all of them! That was very nice!!

Food and service were great! Ambiance was nice, but noise level was somewhat high. As evening progressed, noise level reduced and was easier to converse.

My guests and I had a great experience dining at The Arthur J. The service, food, and ambiance were excellent. Our server Brent was very knowledgeable about their wine list and explained everything on the menu with flavorful details.

Best place in manhattan beach. As good as Mastros’s and you don’t have to leave the bubble. Great food, wine list and service. Only thing i would change is more nice wines by the glass.

The food and service were good. Our table location was not great as our server had to keep moving when he was speaking with us to allow traffic by otherwise a nice experience.

First of all, our server was excellent!!! I forgot to ask her name again but she definitely set the tone of our experience that night. The rest of the staff that evening were great too. From getting us seated earlier than our original reservation time to our complementary champagne toast and “happy anniversary” card! ❤️

The food was great! We ordered the tomahawk and it was definitely one of the easiest jobs for my steak knife. So tender and cooked perfectly. The butters were amazing as well. We got the green peppercorn and truffle butter - we loved the latter more and cleaned off the bowl. Mashed potatoes and broccolini were perfect for the steak. The popover was just okay, nothing too crazy good about it.

Overall, our first time at The Arthur J was superb! So happy we decided to celebrate our special night there. Will definitely go back.
Bonus: Tony Romo was at the table next to us!

Amazing service. My food was very salty, and the staff was super helpful, getting me new food and in the end, I didn't have to pay anything for the food. They also gave me free dessert to take home.

It was my boyfriend's birthday and I wanted to take him to somewhere I heard was wonderful and had never been. We had 6:45 reservations and due to the Lyft drivers being far away I called the restaurant letting them know we were delayed. I was assured that it wouldn't be an issue. Well...it was...and we were only 15 minutes late. We waited for a table for 45 minutes and the staff was very kind and offered us drinks, etc. which we declined. We finally were seated and had a lovely meal. It was just a tad disappointing that we had to wait so long. I wanted this evening to be special for my guy and this definitely put a damper on the evening. Oh well.

The place is always packed and lovely yet distinguished and comfortable. Guests literally don’t want to leave - we had a reservation but couldn’t get seated til 20 minutes after our reservation but I didn’t really care. The fantastic staff took great care in letting us know they were sorry and more than made up for it. As always, Arthur J is at the very top of my list.

Excellent meal. The Burrata an Tomato Salad was very flavorful with a touch of sweetness. . Shared a Tomahawk which was perfectly cooked. Accompanied by mushrooms and Broccolini.
Ended with the Apple Tart. Our server Brent was very professional, knowledgeable and cordial. Busboys were awesome.
Will definitely be back!

Possibly the best filet mignon I've ever tasted. The Swedish meatball and bone marrow appetizers were great as were all the sides we ordered. The wait staff, particularly, Mike, our waiter, was always nearby, always attentive and Mike's recommendations were spot on. A fantastic first visit, except for the parking situation.

I love steak! Charred outside and medium rare inside. Filet was good, but no char. Maybe it's a Chicago thing? Creamed spinach side was great as was salad. Don't miss this place! Real CA atmosphere and obviously the place to be!

The steak was the best. Perfectly done and Mmmmm tasty. The wine was very expensive so I ordered the cheaper wine ($20.00/6 oz) with left me with a headache all night long. The minestrone was tasty but the carrots were a bit hard. I don't know if they do that on purpose but I prefer softer. I was hoping to bring a bottle of wine in but the corking fee is $35.00. I recommend the steak but the rest is up to you. Also, looks like a great place to hang out at the bar afterwards but no seats open. Ohhh , it was my birthday and the waiter said Happy Birthday. Thanks.

Our server Matt provided the best service we have had in a a restaurant in Manhattan Beach. He was patient, funny, understanding, and flexible. We never felt pressured or forced to order anything we didn't want to. Not to mention, all the food was amazing.

Excellent meal, we both selected Ribeye steaks accompanied by Fries. Steaks came perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. Fries complemented the meat very well. Only criticism is that the horseradish sauce I requested was tasteless, I expect to get a kick from horseradish - this was kickless!

This establishment gives it their all to provide the best dining experience possible. From ambiance to service and to food, I was impressed the whole night. Our server Mike was truly something special. His knowledge of the menu, as well as his charisma and kindness, really were a huge part of the experience. As far as the food goes, they have it all. From oysters all the way to out porterhouse for two, everything tasted outstanding. If you are on a budget, I'd definitely save this place for one of those special occasion type evenings, but if you want the best quality steak in the L.A beach cities, this is a must-try. I will definitely be back here again to try some different cuts.

This was my 4th visit to Arthur J and unfortunately it continues to be hit or miss. Service was great. The food however just wasn't as good as it should be at those prices ($$$$). The caesar salad was drowning in an overly sour lemon caesar dressing. The tomahawk ribeye ordered at medium rare plus was rare throughout and frankly a little chewy. If this was Outback Steakhouse you would overlook all of it but it's not.
