Enjoyed dinner together last evening and were satisfied with the chicken pot pie and the Rueben sandwich. Nothing special, but satisfactory. The new location is updated and nice. Cleanliness is a problem. When I mentioned to the serve that the menus really needed a bath, he stated they clean them "once a week". Yuch!! Clean them every time they are... More

Eaten at Arnie's for 30 yrs. Wouldn't come back if the food wasn't consistent. Staff is genuinely nice and specials are competitive. That being said, we waited over 10 minutes and wasn't acknowledged. A simple, be with you shortly or sorry about the delay would go far. Our waitress was overwhelmed while the hostess kept seating her. That is not... More

We had the orange chicken and rice not bad. Their macaroni and cheese I'm told was great. Not many potatoes wedges for the price. However the cupcakes were perfect.

Terrible waitress ... seldom checks back at your table. Their "Chicken Alfredo" is really a dried out diced chicken that looks like they salvaged chicken off plates that went back to the kitchen and recycled with a Velveeta cheese sauce. A traditional Chicken Alfredo is made with cream cheese and Parmesan cheese and tastes nothing like what they serve. The... More

We had a large group of family with us and Arnie's was a great place to go! They had plenty of room for us and while we weren't super loud, we didn't feel like we needed to be hush-hush. I ordered a fantastic salad and was excited that it, too, came with a cupcake! :) Our family that lives in... More

My daughter and I were shopping at the Centrepoint Mall and noticed an Arnie's next to mall and since we really like the Arnie's in rockford we decided we'd have dinner there. We had to wait for the greeter to stop talking into her head piece with whoever about personal life ( couldn't help but hear as we standing right... More

So dissapointed! The noodles in the chicken noodle soup looked like they were crushed or from the bottom of the bag. It was too salty this time. Our waiter Pablo was one of the worst. Had to ask for silverware, water and drink refills, flag him down for desserts and boxes along with the check. It took an hour to... More

On Dec 27th, I visited the Arnie's on 54th street with a coworker for lunch. I am lactose and gluten intolerant. I always tell the server right away. I mostly get very positive results from servers, but not this time. Her answer "Well, we don't have much you can eat, we don't have anything gluten free and I'm not sure... More

Used to go to Arnie's all the time; no more. Way too noisy. Last time I visited with friend at 11:30. By the time 12 rolled around we were leaning into each other & raising our voices to be heard. Never again. Food good but not worth the noise. Not only do I no longer go to Arnies with friends... More
