Good but not what it used to be.

For years we enjoyed the eating at Arner's here and in Mt Penn, PA. However, during recent visits the quality has been lower and lacks the taste associated with this restaurant.

I wish I could give zero stars to this poor excuse for a restaurant... On the way back from Philly to our beach house recently, my wife and I stopped in for a sandwich. We were led to a nice booth and greeted by a young girl waitress. My wife ordered a grilled cheese and asked for some DICED tomatoes... More

Tonight I had the most rude service from "Kristen," the cashier. She may or may not be the owner. I take my disabled brother out to eat at least two times a week, and tonight I decided to come to Arner's. The meal was pretty good except for the eclair. I grew up in New Castle County, and have eaten... More

This is definitely our go-to place for breakfast out in New Castle. Their omelets and potatoes are very good. Even when we go there later in the day we usually have breakfast because their dinner items are just ok. Even the staff knows it: when we visited with a friend who asked our server what their specialties were, the waitress... More

Hard to know how to rate this, as it's always been our go-to place to stop during the drive from our home in CT to my inlaws' in DE. It has always been reasonably good comfort food. Nothing special, but tasty enough and at least we knew pretty much what to expect. This last time, however, everything seemed different. Chaotic... More

We were on our way home from NYC and were looking for a nice place for breakfast. We saw this place and decided to give it a try as previous places in New Castle were not especially good. This place would fit that description as well. I ordered a ham and cheese omelet. What was delivered to our table was... More

We had a late lunch on a Saturday, plentiful salad bar and the Greek Chicken with Spinach and Penne was mouth watering. I nearly licked the bowl. Portions are huge and delicious!

During our weekend trip, we went to Arner's both Saturday and Sunday for breakfast. Both days I was not disappointed. Not alot of substutions allowed on combos. since I was with family, we traded with each other, which worked out well. Nice family atmosphere, good prices and not huge chain. It was nice step back in time.

In the tradition of the best diner, Arnerds provides quality good at a reasonable price. Nothing special about it from the outside but one must show care in entering the ample parking lot - It is located in the center of a turn around used for exiting and feeding two major thoroughfares. The menu is full of whatever you are... More
