Quaint setting

The restaurant by itself is interesting. Set in the middle of the small town of Arlington, it is a log cabin motif. The large front porch is a pleasant place to sit while waiting for a table. The food is good. On separate visits, I've had steak one time and the other chicken. Both were nothing... read more

The new owner of Vinegar Jim's is doing it right! The service and food we got there last weekend was excellent!!! The steak was delicious, as was the fried green tomatoes and the rolls.... Ah,the rolls! We had stopped going to this restaurant because it had sank so low. It's very good to see Vinegar Jim's doing so well again.... More

Took the family of 4 to eat one night after school and got seated right away with no waiting. The restaurant is very interesting with old wooden floors and vintage table and chairs. The drinks were served in mason jars just like my great grandparents did. The server was very friendly and knew the daily specials without looking them up.... More

Took my out of town family here for dinner. Everyone had something different & everyone loved their meals! Veggies & fried pies are DE-LISH!! Love the thin batter on the fried green tomatoes & chicken fingers. Also, their filet with bleu cheese is fantastic!

We love finding local places and this place was a great find! Very cozy atmosphere, friendly staff, and delicious food. They bring you fresh bread before your meal and it is amazing. We have ordered steaks several times and they are always cooked the way we requested and full of season...no steak sauce needed here! They have a great selection... More

If you like places that are cozy and old-fashioned, you will like this place. The food, especially steaks and the home cooked vegetables are superb. I enjoy their hamburgers, sandwiches, as well as fried pickles and they have home made desserts like fried pies that are something you don't find at many other restaurants. Just go early if you go...

We were here vising friends and decided to try a local place. Great food and service. Our group of 5 all got different things - fish, chicken,pork,shrimp, and steak. All were delicious! Saved room for dessert and we tried almost every flavor of the fried pies and the banana pudding - again they were all delicious. Our friends that live... More

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.
