This is the second year we have visited Arnie's place. I have yet to see Arnie though. The food and drinks are always very good and consistant. If you are an early eater or just coming off the golf course, try to catch the happy hour drinks and appertizers. The Appertizers are half price and some are large enough for... More

Although this time it was really crowded and busy, we still received a great meal. The waitress was fabulous, although over-stretched with too many tables. We went on a Sunday night. I got my favorite, the Chilean Sea Bass, which is always wonderful, unique combination of veggies and a light, sweet sauce. The guys got their Sunday night fried chicken... More

We enjoyed dining here with our friends. Emily was a great waitress with a terrific personality. The food was good as always. We also enjoyed all the memorabilia and theoutside putting green. A definite must when you are in La Quinta.

We went to Arnold Palmers with a group the other night and it was great. I didn't have any expectations of the restaurant since I hadn't made the booking but I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was very busy but service still managed to be acceptable. The steak was absolutely one of the best I've ever had and my husband's... More

My husband and I went here for dinner/happy hour in the bar area during our vacation. The bar menu has a great variety of "bar food" with a few dinner type entrees. The prices, which were reasonable already, were even better during happy hour. I ordered the kobe beef sliders, which were cooked a medium rare. Excellent flavor, came out... More

This is our fourth visit and Arnold Palmer's continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Attentive but not overbearing service. Food cooked perfectly to order, good sized portions for the price. Our waiter John took great care of our table of 8 and made sure everyone was happy and taken care of. Atmosphere inside or out...
