I like Arena's when we can't decide where to eat or are just tired. The food is good. They have good specials during the week, but the food isn't that special. I do however love their Famous Granny Smith Sandwich. It is sliced cheddar cheese, tart apples, sprouts, carrot slices, onions, honey mustard and mayonnaise on whole wheat. To me... More

Great choices! Daily Specials! I enjoyed the Maryland Crab Soup and Cesare Salad combo and my husband enjoyed the bacon packed BLT. Wednesday I took my Mom who enjoyed the daily Special :a fried flounder sandwich and I enjoyed the Tuna Salad Sandwich special.

Arena!s has a good cheese steak. They were the only place open after a hurricane went through. Small, busy and no view sitting outside but food is good.

Happy hour is worth the visit. Three of us had drinks and sandwiches for $30.00 casual bar type atmosphere, very popular with the locals.

Lunch with girlfriend but neither of us too hungry so opted for nachos and coffee. Nachos were great and coffee good, 1.00 for refill. Coffeehouse atmosphere, weren't crowded and we weren't rushed out of there. Wait staff accommodating and leaves you alone. Will go back for lunch again and have food that usually good. Parking easy, plenty spaces

The place is fairly small. The service was a bit slow but friendly. They had a variety of unique sandwiches which we enjoyed. It was a bit strange that if you order coffee with your meal you have to pick a size. It's a self serve coffee bar in the front.

Stopped in on a weekday morning and was pleasantly greeted. This is a casual, seat-yourself kind of place. Food was good and service was fast and friendly. Would go back.

We got sandwiches and salads to take to the beach and the quality is always good. I believe I got the Californian Dude sandwich with turkey, avacado, tomatoes and sprouts. Reminds me of a sandwich at Jimmy Johns. It was perfect.

We found Arena's Cafe and had lunch there. I had a very generous sized greek salad with blackened chicken and my boyfriend had a sandwich. Our waiter was extremely friendly and attentative. We liked it so much we went back for breakfast and coffee the next morning. The breakfast sandwiches we had were delicious. The only complaint I had was... More
