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.

Seated 20’ late. Steak over cooked and had to be re cooked while everyone else’s food and sides got cold. Rude staff. Many ways to move guests along when it’s closing time, but the host was extremely rude and inappropriate. We were happy to pay and leave and would have done so without his hostile approach. We have fined there many times before and have supported them with their to-go programa during the pandemic. But we are never going back again. I’d Mischa rather drive to APL or STK or Mastro’s for far superior quality and hospitality.
Wonderful experience. Thank you Mike! Delicious food, knowledgeable and kind staff. Will def be back
Food was superb! Wine was delish and our server Brent was very attentive. Very nice evening down at the beach!
Great steaks. Nice place. Very happy for birthday reservations.
Hard to spend that amount of money when your table is on the street with a view of the dry cleaners and the parking spot where cars pulled in and out.
I feel bad because I know restaurants are struggling.
However, $360.00 for 4 people is a lot of money and I need a little bit more.
Great food. Outside eating area was wonderful with the exception of the flies!
The Arthur J is a home run every time. If you are popping in for a quick bite and a couple of cocktails or throwing down in the serious wine list, the restaurant crushes it. Ask for Michael as your server. They are all great, but his star shines brightest.
Everything was great
Great service and food!!!
We come here every other year to celebrate our anniversary dinner. Unfortunately, due to COVID our ambiance was sacrificed by being outside. One of our favorite parts about this restaurant besides the ambiance is the care that is shown from host, to waiter to managers. Both previous visits we were asked if we’re celebrating a special occasion and on arrival of our visit we received a special card with a note from all employees that day. Our waiter, Brent, was amazing and definitely took care of us and our food was amazing which is why we ultimately come back. Due to these uncertain times we missed out on the other little things that you guys were able to do to make our day a little extra special. I’m positive if we weren’t in a pandemic and we were able to dine inside that our experience would be different. We appreciate the hard work and percussions that has been taken to allow us to enjoy our special meal.
It was nice. Great food but the flies outside became a nuisance.
Wonderful as ususal
The server was very knowledgeable and helped guide us through the menu and service was wonderful! I had wild boar pork chop and it was incredibly delicious. A very nice outdoor ambience that feels very safe with the shields they have set up...
outstanding on all counts, the staff, the service, the “street” ambiance, and the scrumptious fare!
Meal was good but not great, pricing reflected top tier quality and just didn’t deliver. Popovers were borderline burnt. Crab legs were mushy. Jam with bone marrow overpowered the bone marrow. Had a lot of discussion with waiter about temperature of the meat but was still undercooked. Not a bad experience but definitely not worth the $600+ for 3ppl
Celebrated my husband’s birthday. Due to Covid, we sat outdoors. The food and service was excellent. Glad we chose Arthur Js.
The crew at AJ does their best to make the outdoor dining experience as good as their first rate indoor experience.
Everything was great as always
Everything was more than excellent.
The food (salad and steak) were very salty. Popovers were overcooked. It may have just been an off night. The food was good besides that, nice menu options.
My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here this past Sunday and it could not have been any better. We were originally seated next to the sidewalk, which I would not recommend, but were quickly moved over near the planters which made the experience 100 times better. Servers were knowledgeable and had great attitudes and energy. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and drinks were nice and strong. Full bar and enormous wine list. Our first time here and definitely not our last. A permanent patio would be awesome, loved the outdoor setting. You definitely get your 💰 worth here :)
Really really high quality dinner. The meat cooked perfectly to your liking, all the sides prepared impeccably. Service is prompt and attentive, and our server was very personable.
We went during the pandemic with outside seating; they made a pretty nice dining area and it was pleasant.
It gets chilly in the evenings in this area (it’s a block away from the beach) so definitely bring a layer.
Great as always! Patio was nice! The weak link was the cauliflower steak... really blah. I only ate one bite. But everything else was good including the service!
Service and each course from appetizers to Branzino and NY Steak and sides were perfect as always. Welcoming, friendly, hard working staff made this yet another perfect evening at Arthur J.
Great service from Courtney our server!!
It’s our favorite special occasion place or for daily dining when I can splurge. It never disappoints. The food and service are A plus. It’s always consistent and delicious. Love the crab, oysters and salads. All the sides especially Mac n cheese , mashed potatoes and broccolini are insane. The steaks and sauces are super yummy! Love the craft cocktails and an extensive wine list. Truly a gem! And the staff are exceptional. Very caring.
Food and service was amazing. They really care to make your experience as best as possible and let you experience fine dining how it should be. Even with COVID and not being allowed to eat inside, the outdoor seating was very nice and relaxing. We will definitely recommend and revisit!
Best restaurant in Manhattan Beach. Staff is impeccable and food is perfection on every level.
Our favorite South Bay restaurant! Everything in general was great. Always amazing cuts of meat. Seafood wasn’t at its best tonight. Great service, attentive, and accommodating!
Overall the food has slipped a little but kind of expected in the COVID/outdoor era. We will always enjoy the Arthur J!!
Out of town friends loved the experience!
great meal, slow service. few issues. but the foh took care of us.
The Arthur J's is a great steakhouse with a great variety of appetisers and sides.
Went on a Tuesday night. Great food, great service, great time.
The Arthur J was Extremely Good. Everything From The Bread, The Sides, The Entree’s, To The Drinks. Everything Was Amazing, Definitely Recommended For Their Steak
The best food. Every dish was spectacular. The staff are so warm and accommodating too. Been back twice in two weeks!
I was really impressed, overall, with my dining experience. The ribeye was prepared perfectly along with the amazing sides. Arther J has a comprehensive menu with both meat and seafood options; including caviar. Arther J also offers a impressive wine list consisting of wines by the glass and some stellar bottle selections. Service was good but could probably use some more polish. A excellent choice...
Lovely night out on the patio and we felt safe. The wait staff was attentive and wore proper masks to protect themselves and us. The food was simply outstanding-- from the crab legs, shrimp and popover apps to the salads, steak entrees and cake for dessert, we enjoyed our first time here. Thank you!
Me and friends had late night dinner here one recent Friday.
One sauce was too spicy for me, but It was definitely made in house, a major plus, and I shared my comments about it w the staff, loved their receptive responses and action mid dinner.
Everything else was cool otherwise: atmosphere, drinks, and sides.
I hadn’t been dining since social distancing started.
The waiting staff was prepared to answer my few questions before order and really delivered for me that night.
The final bill was no surprise, and service was great for me.
Good food and good drinks too.
Tipped more than usual, cash.
Outstanding as always ... great steaks!! Great sea bass!!! Great desserts! Great everything!
