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.

We absolutely LOVE dining at the Arthur J! It is one of our favorite restaurants in Manhattan Beach and we are so sad that you all are having to close due to city regulations. We can't WAIT when you are able to open back up again. We will be your first customers for sure :)
PS: the cake of the month is always our absolute FAVORITE dessert!!
Great service good food nice atmosphere quiet nice for couples ❤️
As always the Arthur J aims to please! The food was excellent, service impeccable, and outdoor dining experience a pleasant surprise! My wife and I enjoyed our meal and felt completely safe and comfortable with the lengths and measures the Arthur J staff has deployed to prevent covid spread. Well done Arthur J ownership and staff!
outstanding! best restaurant in mb hands down!
Dining during COVID is an adventure for diners and staff for sure. We could not have had a more pleasant and delicious dinner on Saturday night.
First, seating is spread out of course and my reaction to being far flung down Manhattan Ave was not great. So we sat and made the best of a rare special night out. Ironically 15 minutes later a family was sat next to us and whined loudly about their imperfect location for another 10 minutes. So eventually we had to remind this entitled party that other guests were actually present and trying to enjoy their experience. Apparently we were a big hit with the staff who had been dealing with this matter. The table on the other side offered to buy us drinks. The hostess likely crumbled under the weight of the guests’ misplaced anger.
Second, the staff are very kind and outgoing. We had excellent service and attentiveness from management and staff. The waiter recommended fantastic dishes and wines.
Third, the food is hands down worth the price to be paid. Excellent steak and wonderful roast pork. A harvest cake with carrot and cranberry and cream cheese frosting went home with us. Delicious!
At any rate, we all have to give a little and be thankful for what we have. We were able to dine out Saturday night. This Saturday that won’t be the case. Those staff members had jobs on Saturday night. Maybe not this weekend.
Please remember those around you who are struggling during this time and be patient and kind to each other. And order take out! The family meals are awesome. Enjoy!
Good dinner at Arthur J. My favorite part was our waiter Mike. We've had him 3x in a row and he is always nice to see. The salads were excellent, the sides were delicious and the steaks were great. We ate outside on a cool night and were warmed by the heat lamp.
This was definitely an amazing food experience! The food phenomenal! The service is outstanding and they really made this occasion great!
The meal, service, outdoor seating were all excellent.
Amazing service. Matt is very knowledgeable, gave good advice, knows his steaks. The Som was very helpful. Picked the perfect wine for us and we have very different tastes. It was an exercise of compromise that was successful. Food is always well executed and tastes amazing. The cake of the month is “holidays on a plate.”
Always Greatest Filet my favorite steak and great French fries . Good service .
My reviews are during the pandemic...It was a freezing cold night and we had to eat outside but the service was absolutely great. They were trying to make us as comfortable as possible.
Then came the food....oh wow, we bought a few samplers of meat and they were the best flavors, the leanest cuts, the greatest cooking temperatures. They were melt in your mouth delicious.
This was a beautiful experience I was able to share with the family.
Best restaurant in Manhattan Beach! Reliably outstanding.
Mikey is the man. If you want the best service ask for Mikey!!!
One of my favorites in normal times, but not good in the covid outdoor scenario. Too expensive to be sitting on the sidewalk with random strangers standing all around you
Had the best birthday celebration possible. Had a private area on the side patio. Fantastic food, wine and family.
Impeccable service, exquisite meal and never a disappointing time. We love Arthur J and are so happy to dine with them during these times. A wonderful staple in our community that we are so grateful to have :)
A delightful evening!
Worth the drive cross town for hospitality - Ceasar salad- steak cooked to perfection - decadent chocolate dessert!
Outstanding in every respect. Excellent service, fresh and tasty food expertly prepared. Highly recommended.
The Arthur J is the best steakhouse in the South Bay. They have done a terrific job of setting up the outside seating. Do yourself a favor and get the bone marrow appetizer!
The food was wonderful, always is, parking is a challenge but they are doing their best in the COVID environment.
Great food and wine. I had the pasta , was too spicy couldn’t eat all. Arthur J is great restaurant. They have a fantastic cake of every month, you can’t go wrong.
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.
As always, a wonderful meal from the great team at Arthur J. I can't recommend a better place for safe distanced, responsible dining during COVID.
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
