Good meat loaf, shrimp scampi excellent. We sat outside and waitstaff brought us a heater .. So service nicely done. Clientele skews a little gray so don't be looking for a lot of thirty something action here. Good place...we'll be back.

We ate here for the first time this trip and will definitely be going back. We had a shrimp cocktail that was one of the very best, both had salads and I had fish while my husband had the "famous" meat loaf!!! Both dishes were fabulous!!! The setting with all the memorabilia, the patio with the putting green, fire places... More

This has always been a main stay in town ..., it is now struggling ... Lovely people .... Fair pours but food on regular menu over priced... The parking lot is a disaster... Fear for your safety... Lights out all over the place... Rake the traps guys!!!!

I have had more expensive steaks but none so good as the Filet that I had at Arnold's. It made for a beautiful evening with my very good friend. Oh, the bachelorette party was fun entertainment, too.

We spent New Years eve at Arnold Palmers in La Quinta. They did a great job, paying particular attention to table settings and decorations, lots of hats and noise makers and a staff that was completely in to the fact it was a celebration evening. The meal was great. Solid, comfortable and well prepared food. No pompous "buerre blanc sauce... More

i really like Arnold's. Relaxed good entertainment call ahead if you want to know specifically who is playing. Food is good and lots of it. Not the cheapest place but ok prices. I like the atmosphere. Valet parking is nice as there is no parking close.

Nine friends joined us for the early New Year's Eve sitting at Palmer's and six of us ordered the filet mignon dinner and all agreed that it was high up on the list of the best steaks we had ever had in a restaurant. The whole meal was delicious and, as always, the service was top notch. Dustin, the General... More
