I have been to this restaurant a few times and I will return. However on my most recent visit (Valentine's Day) we were kept waiting for 15 minutes despite having a reservation. We were asked to wait in the bar but I didn't want a drink, no alternative was offered so we were left hanging around in the reception area... More

My husband goes on an annual golfing trip to Palm Springs with the guys and they always eat at Arnie's. This was my first time but I understand why now. There is indoor and outdoor seating, they're happy to accomodate both large and small groups, they menu isn't large but is good and the wine list is pretty good. We... More

Our waiter Casear was exellent and took good care of us! This was our anniversary and everything was perfect! We heard a lot of good things about Arnold Palmer's and they are all true. We enjoyed the patio, a beautiful place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

So many great choices. If you haven't tried the meatloaf you are missing out. I also recommend the swordfish and pot roast. Definitely have desert. Coconut cream pie. Loved sitting in the Palmer room.

Great place for a few fairly priced glasses of wine and a few appetizers! Come early as it is very popular and fills up fast!

This restaurant had an opportunity to excel, and missed it. The Palmer memorabilia is definitely worth a look, and then leave. The regimen is get you in and out as quickly as possible and provide ordinary food. The menu has been revised and eliminated some of the "Arnold Palmer Comfort Food" that we enjoyed. My suggestion is send the MBA's... More

Beautiful setting. Attractive ambiance. Popular dining establishment that has a lively bar scene (attracts a lot of golfers). Outdoor dining with views of a small putting green and the warmth of a sizable, circular fireplace. Ample indoor dining. Delicious food and excellent service. Mr. Palmer dines there occasionally. He and guests happened to be dinning the night my husband and... More

Great setting, great food, and great service. We had made reservations and were delayed in being seared. The restaurant comped our drinks in the bar. I had the grilled pork chops that were awesome. Others had Arnie's meatloaf - good; scallops - outstanding; Dessert was very very good too. A definite must.

This restaurant is expensive but worth the price. I had Chilean Sea Bass that was out of this world! Service was very good and nice atmosphere.
