We have been going to Arners for ten years. Going down hill. We ordered Veal Parm which came with pasta which was left over from the day before all dried out. They had no Parmesan cheese how can they make Veal Parm with out the Parmesan cheese? Are they under new management? While we were there someone came and took... More

Used to be average. Went for lunch. Ordered chicken parm. The pasta was disgusting..very mushy and watery. The sauce was very sweet and thin. The chicken was just ok. They didn"t even have parm cheese available! The "garlic" bread had no garlic. Just a toasted slice with parsley on it. My wife got fried pickles. These were just strips of... More

I stopped at Arner's for lunch on my way to Dover, because it looked like a decent place from the outside. Looks are deceiving. I ordered the Denver omelette with hash browns. When I got my meal, the hash browns were two patties like one would buy in the supermarket, and they were dripping in grease. The "toast" was simply... More

It's been a few years since visiting this establishment. It used to have one of the best salad bars around for the price. On this business trip I visited two different times. Both times were for lunch/dinner and there was something odd each time we visited. The restaurant was empty even on Friday around 6pm on a holiday weekend. They... More

Below average, and not in a snobby this-is-a-diner way, it really is. Not busy at lunch yet took 45 min to get a grilled cheese and fries. Grill cheese is hard to screw up but even this was pitiful. The fries??? Words can't describe. They are raw on inside and slightly cooked on outside like they were allowed to thaw... More

Enjoyed the lunch. Husband and I had the taco salad. It was a very good taco salad. Have not had a good one in a long time but this one was delicious. Would loved to have had a piece of their Boston Cream Pie, but was too full. Looked yummy.

Battery park is along the Delaware river and has a paved walk along the river. This is a nice place for birding or strolling. There is also a nice playground for kids

It was lunch with a friend. I had a bowl of chicken noodle soup and the salad bar. My friend had a taco salad. It was a big bowl of soup and a good salad bar. My friends salad was huge. Certainly goo portions. Also great service. Need to come back and have breakfast.

This restaurant has gone through some changes in recent years, and they haven't been good. Lately, the restaurant has really fallen into disrepair. When I was there the other day, I noticed a large pile of papers and boxes in the front lobby which looks VERY unprofessional and very sloppy. If that's what it looks like where people can see,...
