Happy Hour in the Lounge was so nice, we stayed for dinner outside. Guitar music and sunset capped a day of golf with friends. Great steaks and service. I had excellent Sea Bass in Honey glaze.

Both my husband and I had The meatloaf and wedge salad. This is not your truck stop meatloaf. It's tender with with a delicious sauce. It's served with mashed potatoes prepared to perfection. Also a side of green beans. Tiny new green beans cooked perfectly with just a touch of crunch. The wedge salad was topped with tomato, bacon bits... More

Each year we attend this restaurant for a great meal experience. This is a high quality steakhouse that nails the steak/seafood experience. The service is very good with very personable servers. The appys were tasty and the steak was excellent. If you want a romantic evening out, this is your restaurant. The patio dining is wonderful with the solo guitarist... More

Had dinner at Arnold Palmer's for the first time this year just last week with some old family friends, and it was unanimous...NEW FAVORITE PLACE!! We already have plans to reunite here before summer! I am a huge fan of the menu, some basic dishes done so beautifully. Makes you wonder why you even try to cook them at home!... More

Sat outside on the patio for dinner. It is very nice. They have an abundance of outdoor heaters for the warmth challenged (such as myself). I had pate and split the prime rib.The pate is amazing and a very generous serving. Prime rib was very good as well.

We've been here a few times over the years. It isn't our regular spot, but always good for a treat. I've had many things on the menu, and everything has always been delicious; albeit a little on the pricey side. We tried going for happy hour a couple of times, but always end up ordering off the regular menu (resulting... More

Arnie's is a regular stop for us when in the desert and we have never been disappointed. Typically, very generous drink pours start the evening and tonight was no exception. This evening the salmon was superb but the "specialty of the house" meatloaf was average at best; not to the taste I prefer. Service from Pablo was definitely 5-star; thank... More
