Just okay -- food was better than service

An old-school Italian-American restaurant that clearly has its local fans -- the vibe is right (make sure you dine on second floor). Food itself was okay -- hearty red sauce, decent minestrone -- but nothing that will change your world. Real issue was incredibly lackluster and slow service. What's... read more

If you're in the mood for a nice, inexpensive, good-quality meal, this is the place to go! I strongly recommend the veggie lasagna. The pasta was home-made and the portion was generous! Our waiter/barman was perky, fully of personality and overall lovely.

This place was highly recommended by a hotel staffer, so I tried it out. It's okay, but I suspect it gets great reviews as they locals don't know any better and it's really the only game in town. I'd almost rather have gone to the infamous chain instead. The service was quite poor, and I was the only one there... More

I have never had it before but they told me it is a 'French Canadian/Quebec' dish.. - so, being true to my French Canadian roots - i tried it. It was Great ! the pizza was perfect (i am very picky about the crust and... More

My wifes family has been going to Arnies since it opened in the 50's. I've been going since the 70's. Arnie still runs the place and we host a family get together every year. This year we had 24. The food is always good. The service can be slow if you get the wrong waitress...ask for Nicole if she still... More

Okay food, okay service. Nothing special. Many of the customers and staff know each other. Prices were reasonable, portions modest. No negatives. Also, keep expectations low and you'll be fine.

Arnie's is a Plattsburgh landmark! And I see why......they have delicious Italian food. Even the bread is awesome, beyond fresh. Their Italian Sausage must be straight from the farm it is so good; one of my favorites. Love their Sauce.... Lunch or Dinner, Arnie's is a good bet!

Consistently awesome. Not fancy, just good. Best marinara sauce and amazing to still see Arnie from time to time. Don't like it? Get over yourself.

Arnie's in downtown Plattsburgh has been a favorite of mine for many years. Arnie's has an upstairs dining room and a street level "bistro-type" bar with several tables. The best part about the bar is that they do not allow families with children to be seated in this area. Arnie's menu is strong on traditional Italian favorites. Their homemade marinara... More
