    Arni's offers a pretty consistent menu and service. Bar area TV's/music are, at times, a bit loud. Still really enjoy this restaurant.

    Service and seating was off the game today - uncharacteristic. Still the food was great and as always - the value high…not quite sure what all the confusion was about being seated and what was up with the challenged service. Maybe things will be back to normal next time.

    Can’t go wrong with the loaded cheese fries and the pretzel bites. Salmon salad was great and the kids enjoyed their burgers with a side of fruit, which was freshly cut and generous. My husband enjoyed the Stromboli, as always. Great casual eating!

    They had white bean chicken chile for the soup which is always so good. Our waitress remembered us (2 from last week) and even what we orders. Lunch pizza is always good. Good food, good service, good weather on the patio.

    The prices have really increased since the last time we visited. $40 for a salad, medium pizza and 2 cokes is a bit pricey, I think. Tip was in addition.

    We had heard about Arni’s but had never been. The online menu looked great. And while our food was fine the whole experience was a little disappointing. Let me quick to say that it is no one’s fault. Our server was very attentive. She took great care of us. But the pandemic restrictions, while necessary, made this less than a satisfying experience. Wearing masks and having fewer people in the restaurant made this a little less festive than we’d hoped. Still we enjoyed our meal, the visit with our friends and we will likely come back when the pandemic is over.

    As always, Arni's offered the consistency that we've come to enjoy. It was a bit loud but maybe that's because there were more people around then what we're use to in todays world! Definitely a favorite location.

    3 longtime gal pals really enjoyed our dinner there this past week! We had not eaten "In" for a few weeks, and we were so glad Arni's was open for dining. We each had our own pizza. Wonderful! I LOVE the crumbled pepperoni, plus the salads are superb. One of the group ordered dessert, and shared a couple bites with the other 2 of us - also wonderful! We had Walker as our server - he was great. I can hardly wait to go back!

    Love Arni’s pizza and Arni’s junior salads. There were 6 in our party and we were seated at a round table that made group conversation easy. The only issue was the cold air that was blasting down on us. Two of us kept coats on the entire meal.
