First I would say the staff made our evening magical and fun. Fast friendly service, laughter, and warm. We both enjoyed the people who gave us great service. Started with fried Green Tomatoes air appetizers. My date had the Greek salad and it was too...More

We stopped in to Arnold's late one night for a couple cocktails that we really DIDN'T need, but the bartender was so cool, friendly and made sure we enjoyed ourselves. We were playing a silly game and the bartenders jumped right in and cheered us...More

This place is a favorite of ours. It's intimate, quirky and quaint. We had the deep fried deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes (both amazing), the spaghetti and meatballs and a burger. There is a dining room upstairs, a dining area to the side and a...More
