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.

Made reservation two weeks prior. took 30 minutes to be seated. Initial reservation was hightop and made request for window. Called ahead to inquire about ability for window instead of hightop and was told day of reservation my request was being accommodated. After 30-minute wait, was given high-top. Not a great experience from that standpoint but the food was exceptional.

Service is great, we had oyster Rockefeller and regular oysters, bone marrow (a bit salty), tomahawk (a bit under the medium that was ordered, but not unusual for tomahawk), ribeye (nice though a bit unevenly cooked - parts consistent with medium rare and parts consistent with medium on a medium order), wagyu (very good), sautéed mushrooms (quite salty on its own), Brussels sprouts (good), cream spinach (very good), mixed veggies w burata cheese (good), coffee (good), and a dessert (good). Would go back again!

If price is no object, this experience is worth the time of the discriminating diner. Very good food in a pleasant atmosphere without the typical stuffiness of other high end restaurants.

The Artgur J is a magnificent steakhouse. The steaks are exquisite (always go for the dry aged ones, you'll really taste the white oak and smoke). The bar and the mixologist running the bar are top notch. The service is excellent. The ambiance is modestly energetic; just people having a good time. You will definitely spend a couple hundred dollars here but, it'll be worth it, I promise.

My wife and I celebrated getting two weeks past our Covid shots I having our first nice dinner out in nearly a year. The Arthur J was the perfect place to do it as they have a wonderful outdoor dining area and we eat early so the weather was wonderful. They always cook our steaks exactly the way we ask for them, and this is one of the few places that actually will cook “black and blue” so that it truly is black and blue. Chatted on the outside but very rare on the inside. Mike Simms sets a high bar for Southbay steakhouses and so far no one else has come close.

We have dined at Arthur J's several times over the past 2-3 years. The vibe inside was good with low lights and a great lively play mix. The COVID restrictions are annoying when they seat you asking to keep the meal to 2 hours. Please deliver my food in a timing manner and I will get out of the restaurant. They are nice but it is still annoying.

On to the food...The popovers were excellent. The strawberry butter was a yummy addition to the dish. My minestrone soup had a heavy herb taste which too away from the soup. I didn't have put a couple of spoonfuls before pushing it away.

The prime rib was good. The au jus is very salty which is a running theme with Arthur J. I thought it was just a one-time issue last time but is not. My husband and son went the steak route and enjoyed them.

We capped the evening off with two desserts. The chocolate dessert was amazing. The creamsicle cake was good but the chocolate was better.

The bill was over $400 for 3 people with 5 drinks. Seems pricey to me.

Great meal, amazing service, and we got a great seat outside. Unfortunately beach view doesn't actually mean beachside seating, but it was still a nice view. The food was great, but it was certainly very expensive and I don't think worth its value.

Our waitress, Stephanie, was awesome, professional, and very attentive. The steaks we ordered were absolutely delicious and perfect! Expensive but worth it! If I had to comment on the least desirable part of my experience it would be the two ladies by the entrance chatting casually as I was about to enter the establishment. It didn’t seem like they were working at all as there was no warm greeting or welcome. I expected at least a greeting as I knew I’d be spending a few hundred dollars that evening. I did note that my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary but somehow acknowledgement of that fell through the cracks. It’d have been much nicer if it the restaurant had added some kind of special touch to make our meal more memorable.

One of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time. The service was fantastic and the Ribeye steak was so tender and flavorful, I would have to rank it as the best steak I have had in years from any restaurant.

Food was fabulous and so was the service. When we got there the heater was not working and could not be fixed. Had to go a little while before they could bring over a heater that was available. Music was turned up a bit high at first, but it was turned down when requested.
