Good, quick lunch- would have again.

Stopped in for lunch- service was very prompt and friendly. Had vegetable plates. Waitress made suggestions and we enjoyed. Price was reasonable and food was good. Would definitely go again.

Had a business lunch here and ordered the chicken sandwich with fries. The chicken was very tough. However, I will say my business associates enjoyed the food very much. I don't plan on returning.

The food was fabulous, but the seating is a little cramped. Don't plan to have an intimate conversation.

Have been here many times and is very consistent. Steaks are good, but if you want wine you must bring your own. Fried green tomatos are a must.

Six of us went for a friend's birthday. Three got the 16 oz steak and each had it cooked a different way and to their liking. My friend said it "was the best steak she had ever had"! And she loves steak!! I had the catfish and it was also delicious. This was a Wednesday night and was not very... More

Pulling up to Vinegar Jim's in the town Square area of Arlington, one can only envision a time past. The front porch welcomes visitors. The interior is large with a side enclosed porch. The night we were there, we enjoyed a very nice, unrushed dinner. My entrée was pork tenderloin. Two good size pieces of grilled pork medallions were accompanied... More

We had lunch specials and were not disappointed. Seating is a little crowded, but the food was served promptly and was reasonably priced. We would return.

Hadn't eaten here for several years, since last time we ate all our vegetables seemed to come straight out of a can, and I can't get my wife to go back. Have been noticing quite a few cars there as time has gone on, though and since I can't get my wife to try it again, I went for lunch.... More

We were in Arlington for a teaching workshop and wanted to eat at a local restaurant. THis one did not disappoint! Have not been here in awhile and really enjoyed the food, service and variety. Plenty of food to share. I had the veggie special and had enough to take home. You can choose from 3 or 4/5 veggies. I... More
