It's been awhile since we had dinner at Arnold Palmer's. It was a great experience and very good food. We will never forget Arnie & his kindness & friendship. Such a roll model for our children.

New Chef Matt has really picked it up this season. Loving his new dishes. Patio dining with Mark Linford on guitar makes it a perfect evening...or Sunday Brunch. Our favorite LQ Restaurant.

Perfect outdoor dining experience with live music. Everyone enjoyed their food, with the exception of the Beef Stroganoff. Two out of 12 ordered it, and it doesn't taste like a typical Stroganoff. Kind of sweet? Otherwise, all was great.
