Perfect In Every Way!!!

We eat here as often as we can. Never a Thursday where our first thought doesn't go to "let's go to burger night". Best burgers you will ever eat. I know that sounds simple but nothing Frank and Diannah do is every simple. Not to worry if burgers aren't your thing. They have a great menue. We... read more

From start to finish our dining experience at the Arbor Inn was top notch. The warm welcome from the owner, the fabulous and attentive service from the waitstaff and the food were all fantastic. My brother is a prime rib "addict" and has been routinely disappointed in how his meal is prepared. Not here! He was blown away by the... More

Burger night (Thursday's) is quite an experience, we've never been disappointed and the special burgers have varied wildly. You should definitely order desserts when placing your order as they can sell out quickly. Attentive and knowledgeable staff and owners. Great food and fun!

My husband and I are monthly visitors, and usually go for burger night. These special burgers are ground filet, always fresh, never frozen, and cooked to order. What is especially impressive is that they really know how to make a burger. Most restaurants in this price range overcook thier beef. Here, medium is a proper pink medium. Neither bloody nor...

I've been here many, many times over the years and they've never disappointed me. Whether it's for burger night, or a date night I can always find something delicious. You'll often find Frank warmly greeting and seating the guests. The servers know the menu, the wine, and the beer on tap. I love this place. Give it try! Ps this... More

My husband and I eat here frequently. Great food in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. But we especially love Thursday nights because it's Burger Night. And not those thin greasy patties, but a thick, juicy burger. It's not BK or MCD's thank goodness. Go for the burgers on Thursday and go back throughout the week!

I can't believe that last night was my first time experiencing the Arbor Inn. I, being a food critic and of course familiar with fine dining...had to make sure I visited after hearing such great things about this place. Many of you have been following me since my first blog and have found my reviews very helpful so hopefully I... More
