During a recent trip to the Palm Springs area we decided to have dinner at Arnold Palmer's restaurant since my husband is an avid golfer. We were seated on the patio which is a lovely area and there was a musician playing softy in the background. We ordered off of the three course menu available on weeknights and thought it... More

The fun starts at the entrance with the floor pavers honoring golf greats, and continues to your table overlooking the golf course. This is a vibrant energetic, fun place. The food is average, but good. We'll go back for the ambiance and fun.

This was our first visit but it has become our new favorite restaurant. A few bites in to the smoked bacon and date skewer appetizer, recommended by our server John, and we were online to Open Table making reservations for the following night. The food, ambiance, and waitstaff could not have been any better. Truly a wonderful evening.

Fantastic - We brought our family to Arnold Palmers and we were treated like royalty. :) :) This restaurant is a real treat and worth going. We can't wait to come back. The restaurant itself is like a museum of Arnold Palmer. He has thought of every touch imaginable, and the dining experience was superb. Our waiter, Erik, warmly welcomed... More

Loved everything about this place. Try the bacon appetizer with dates. Mouth watering! Also, the vibe could not be beat. Inside or outside--you can't go wrong. Great service and great food!

The patio setting is beautiful. The food was excellent. My husband had prime rib. It was a beautiful thick cut and ever so tender. My seabass was so light and tasty. John was probably the best water we've ever had. He was constantly looking at all this tables to see if anyone was in need of anything. Outstanding service! There... More

i think it is worth the visit. The memorabilia is wonderful. Spent time just walking around after we got our cocktails. Ate outside on a beautiful evening. Out of the 6 of us, 5 really enjoyed dinner and desserts. The cowboy steak wasn't very thick and had a buttery herb sauce. We don't do Cowboy steaks that way in Tex.... More
