Neat restaurant, great food & atmosphere-highly recommend!

This was my first visit to Arnold Palmer's in LaQuinta. We were lucky enough to get to eat in the wine room, which was really cool and enjoyable. The food and drinks were excellent. The menu had great options and couldn't decide between 5 or 6 things. Will definitely need to come back and try... read more

Arranged a surprise anniversary dinner for friends while in Seattle. The staff had everything ready, from a great table on the patio, beautiful flowers, wine, and followed with a awesome meal and dessert. Perfect evening. We arrived early and discovered the restaurant also does a Happy Hour, the menu for happy hour could serve as dinner also.

The happy hour menu at Arnold's has a wide range of choices. The Fish & Chips are fantastic. The home made potato chips are addictive. The prices are the amazing part of the deal. I would recommend to anyone.

This is a great place for us locals and out of town guests! Outside dinning is so special! Bring the whole family or come for a drink and desert! It is a La Quinta hot spot and everyone should put it on their list!

As a full-time resident of La Quinta, Arnold Palmer's is our go-to place, whether for happy hour or special occasions. This past week was my son's 30th birthday, so we went there for the best Filet Mignon or New York steaks in the desert. (My wife had the salmon, which she reported to be excellent as well). We also had... More

We went for the happy hour setting and menu. The inside setting was nice but very noisy. As the crowd grew so did the volume. I suspect that the outside seating would be a bit more relaxing. The service was good and quick. Our food was average/good but nothing to write home about. We would probably try other places for... More

We had a really great dinning experience on the on the outside patio, it was the most pleasant setting. We had drinks and dinner with friends and the food was great and they had music as well. I look forward to our next date night out with my wife, its the perfect location.
