Went here for birthday party, we had grand kids with, and we looked a little disorganized. However we finally had to ask where our food was. The wait staff was friendly enough but was super slow. The food was ok but not worth the wait.

Went for lunch around 1pm yesterday (Fri) and it was moderately busy but we were seated almost immediately. The inside of the restaurant does not match the outside, it was very warm and welcoming with neutral earth-tones, and multiple fireplaces, it felt so cozy and...More

Arnie's has been around a long time and has definitely decreased in both quality and value recently. The food is usually good, but portion size seems to vary from visit to visit. You can't always rely on good service either. The free cupcakes are always...More

Oh, I'm gonna pay for this disaster. Just raw onions--lots of them-- and green peppers, cold, wrapped in eggs is not settling well in my tummy. Around our table, the bacon wasn't really cooked, the hash browns were tasteless with a cold layer. Ah, but...More

I reviewed Arnies in 2012 and was back recently for a visit and not much has changed. There was a huge line at lunchtime to get seated and they don't have a great system for getting people in chairs so you stand and wait. This...More

The food is average, but expect it to be luke warm. The clientele tends to be older. Another place was just too busy so we came here. Staff is mostly competent. Don't have high expectations and you'll be fine. Score 2.5

Arnies has for decades been a family favorite local chain of restaurants. They pioneered the gourmet sandwich with fresh-baked bread years ago, and their Dutch Chocolate Torte remains a work of dessert art. When we lived in Chicago, we'd make a point of buying one...More

I do not know that they take reservations, but you can call ahead and let them know you have a large group coming. They have the ability to seat large groups and are willing to assist you.
