Happy Hour at Arnold Palmer's is the best. Great food, great prices, great piano music. This bar is like the old Cheers, where everybody knows your name, and your waiter, John, even remembers what you drink! Never been to a better happy hour!

Great atmosphere for a date (they sat us at a 2-top right in front of the fire, and their patio looked very inviting as well). The wine list had many wonderful choices, and they'd even categorized it so that people with limited wine knowledge could make an education selection.

Used to go here all the time for Happy Hour. Then one time I showed up with friends and we stood there and stood there and stood there with no one helping us. Tried to pull together our own seats and someone finally came up to us only to say it was reserved and then walked away. Odd.

We had a large party of 10 people arriving at different times. Everybody enjoyed the atmosphere, the beverages and the food. The putting green, although it wasn't lit for evening play, was a fun diversion between courses. A nice finish to a great day in the desert.

My wife and I had been here many years ago and were in town visiting friends and took them here for drinks, appetizers and dinner!! It was as good if not better than we remembered it. Everything from the Valet parking, seating on the patio, and great service by John. Any time we will be in the area, we will... More
