Second attempt. Thought it was just a bad night the first time. Turns out the second visit was worse than the first. Slow service and dirty plates. Food is average at best.

The food remains acceptable and often good, but the revolving door of employees continues. They have had some great bartenders who are very sociable, but they are mostly gone. Every time we get to know one of the good ones, they are no longer there but working elsewhere in the area. A few months ago, the owner told the bartenders to starting using a shot glass to measure alcohol in the drinks. He went as far as putting a camera above where they make the drinks to keep watch over them. That's ridiculous. There are too many other choices. The crowd is also changing for the worse. Sorry, but we may visit on a rare occasion, but the chances of that are slim. We met another couple at a different restaurant in Irwin who were regulars also. There were at the Arena just before we saw them, and they said there was a birthday party at the bar, and they would not stay listening to the language being used.

We met our son and grandson for an early dinner on a Friday late afternoon. We were seated promptly and were greeted by our server in short order. After we got our bev- eridges, the wait began. We ordered pizza, a sandwich, small child's pizza,and a pasta dish.It took a long time before we saw any food although our server came by several times to let us know our food would be out shortly. The pizza was good, and the rest of the food was just ok, with the pasta dish being a little sub ok. The place was almost empty(maybe because it was a little early 3:45pm. or because people expect a little better than just ok ).

Had the Steak Burger and the Pittsburgh Beer Burger. Both were fantastic. Hot and fresh fries.

Wedding soup is pricey but good.

I've ordered Pizza many times when this was Jioio's. The pizza at Arena has the same sweet taste I love. Thumbs up on the pizza! Had some food inside a few times and it's equally as good. Only thing is I wish they had the NFL ticket because I'd be there every Sunday watching out of market games. Owner Dave is also a nice guy. Stop in and have a few.
