Good experience. You could tell there is a lot of history here with each booth having things engraved. Got an IPA (Kona something) which was very similar to drinking a Guinness. Really liked it and it was recommended by the waitress Micha. Micha had a great personality and she is great with people. Got the award winning burger which was... More

The Ark is not a glitzy glamorous jewel by any means. It is dark and fabulous. On weekends it can get packed so get there early. They offer an excellent beer selection and have an extensive menu.

The quality of food is always good. doesn't disappoint, Nice blackened Tuna. nice wines, beer. Burgers are good quality, Fresh. been going here since the 1970's changed owners several times, but they seem to negotiate good cooks. Does tend to get crowded on weekends

By far if you are in the area, this place serves the best burgers. I don't know if it was a special appetizer or a regular on the menu,, but if you have the opportunity to try the poppers stuffed with Mac and cheese, don't pass on it. The only drawback is that if you can't find a parking space... More

My kids can't get enough of the Ark. "Their burgers are super enormous and juicy." My husband loves their fries and all of their salads look delicious. Great family restaurant.

We picked The Ark for our weekly night out. The food was very good and the beer was cold, which is important. But it was very loud.
