I love the atmosphere, the food and the service at Artie's. It's tucked away in a shopping center of middling stores, but has the atmosphere of Clyde's without the noise and the crowds. The food is excellent and the service even better. I get tired...More

Visiting from out of towns and looked for a good sit down place for lunch. Turned out to be during their weekend brunch. Food and service was excellent. Breads were tastiest part of meal. Wish we lived in the area to be repeat customers.

Artie's is number one in Fairfax for a reason. They have mastered the difficult combination of amazing food and equally good service. We've been coming here for years and won't stop anytime soon.

Dined here with friends one evening last month. The chopped salad was great - the steak and ribs very tasty. The portions were so large we did not have room for dessert! Good atmosphere and efficient, friendly service.

We stopped in before church mass and we were running late. We were served so quickly that we made mass on time. Plus we ate very well!!! The crab fritters and eggroll appetizers were very good, but everything on GAR menus is always very good....More
