Solid restaurant--and does take out with understanding. Ribs are worth the price. You can go to Arties and still have folding money left in the wallet.

We have been eating here for years. The crab cakes are fantastic and always get extra bread. The donut style bread is the best.

Great food, excellent service and a nice atmosphere. A super menu too! The location is a little strange (behind / along side a bowling alley) but once you get past that, you are good!

LOVE this restaurant! It has been our "special occasion" restaurant for 10+ year for it's consistent great quality and ambiance. The ribs are magnificent and my favorite is their grilled salmon. The wait staff are professionals and their desserts are also fantastic.

We have eaten at this restaurant for years. You can be assured of excellent service and delicious food every time. I have ordered crab cakes at many restaurants and can say that Artie's makes the BEST crabcakes I have ever had. They are full of crabmeat and not much - if any - filler. The sauce that accompanies the crabcakes... More

"Is this your first visit to Arties?" asked the 20-something waitperson. "Been coming here since before you were born..." The halibut was fish of the day and we both grabbed it (not sharing), split a field green and two Sweetwater IPA's. Prompt service, pleasant and clean. Still $80 for lunch is pushing our window. Love the place but just getting... More

Me and my husband went there several times. We had a dinner and we had evening happy hours. The place is super friendly and cozy. The food is fantastic. Everyone feels like at home.

Artie's has the best salmon around! Whether you want it with eggs during brunch hours or for lunch or dinner, they have it! It is by far my favorite of the Great American restaurants. Excellent atmosphere- can get loud but there are more private booths if needed. The bar is a nice size with tvs. Friendly service!

Thank stephva3
