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.

    Excellent meal. My ribeye was prepared perfectly black and blue, as I ordered it. Many steakhouses have a problem getting this right. The wild mushrooms are fantastic, as was the tuna tartar. Service was excellent, with servers there when we needed them.

    Excellent experience all around! Our server Jay was exceptional and very personable. The food was delicious and prepared quickly. Highly recommend the bone marrow app., the tomahawk steak to share, and the brussels sprouts side. Cocktails are great too, especially the peppermint espresso martini.

    I knew it was going to be expensive, crowded, and wait would be long. That didn't deter me, I wanted to try the food. Unfortunately, the food was also a let down. Overall it didn't have enough flavor or seasoning. --The spinach was mostly butter --The macaroni cheese was ironically the "healthiest" we were served. It tasted like a non-gluten frozen food item you'd buy at trader joes. I would have much preferred the a food style macaroni cheese you'd get at a place like KFC. --The mash potatoes had no gravy. --The 178 dollar Tomahawk steak was cooked alright, but not seasoned enough. The truffle butter we got with it had zero flavor. Finally at the end of the meal, we asked for a take home box and they THREW OUT MOST OF THE STEAK! I would estimate we had 15 oz of steak left (attached to the bone) and they threw it out, and left us with a measly 3 oz strip. I was so upset by this which is why I'm leaving this review

    Start to finish a mediocre experience. It was my 40th birthday and wanted to celebrate with steak. We ordered plenty of food however our waitress ignored us most of the night. When I said I didn’t know what I wanted from the menu she said “ok I’ll come back”. No suggestions were made from the menu and the daily special wasn’t even told to me (over heard another guest at a different table mention it). After we got our food she came by once to check on us. I Likely won’t be coming back despite living only 15 mins away.

    Service was good. We celebrated an anniversary and were given champagne to toast. Complimentary shrimp appetizer which was very nice. My filet however was very fatty and didn’t taste as great as the first time we went so i was a little disappointed. Baked potato and asparagus were tasty and my husband was happy with his steak. Would go again.

    We have dined here two times over the last 3 years and had great experiences. This time they were out of quite a few popular items. We ordered the tuna tartare, caesar salad and the filet mignon. There was very little tuna in the tartare and it was bland, the salad was tasteless and watery and the vegetables that came with the filet were cold and tasteless also. Our server offered to redo the salad and they didn't charge us for it but i had lost confidence at that point. I'm not sure that I'll be back.

    I paid over $100 for a streak and I felt like I needed an electric saw to cut it. The Caesar’s salad was a step up from a boxed one at Trader Joe’s at 4x the price. The French fries were not that crispy and the horseradish sauce tasted more like mayo. The place was so loud that it was hard to hear the person across the table from me. Since the meal cost over $300, not much value there.

    Our server was excellent. The food was mediocre. Cold rib eye. The Chilean sea bass smelled fishy. The mashed potatoes were horrible (flavorless, it was like water) It was our second time at The Arthur J and it was a very bad experience to celebrate my husband’s birthday.

    Service was outstanding! Salmon was an end cut and very ordinary and not dressed up at all. Soup, popovers, mashed potatoes, rib eye were all delicious. Prime rib was overcooked. Dessert choices were numerous and tasted great. Restaurant decor was unexpectedly plain. Overall good but not great.

    Initially we considered leaving while we were waiting to be called for our reservation. It was loud, crowded, and didn’t have a proper waiting area. HOWEVER, once we were seated at a table the service was so far off the charts excellent it made up for it. Our Server was so on top of making everything perfect that it made the night even more special. Then the food came, and OHH MY GAWD! Were we in heaven. Cannot say enough good things about the food and service. The ambiance and decoration of the restaurant was beautiful and it added to the overall experience. Be ready to open up your pocketbook, but I don’t believe you will find a restaurant anywhere like this. Was a little shocked at just how casual the dress was for such an excellent restaurant, but oh well I’d rather be over dressed than under dressed!

    We went to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant was completely packed. The noise level was deafening and the service was a bit slow. The food was good but not exceptional compared to the price of the meal. Celebratory champagne was excellent! !
