Much more than a cozy little restaurant, Archibald's at Gardner Village in West Jordan, Utah is a place rich in atmosphere and local history. The main ingredient of our restaurant began over 130 years ago, when Archibald Gardner -- truly a "mover and shaker" of his day -- built this flour mill. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is home to Archibald's Restaurant and CF Home at Gardner Village. At Archibald's, you'll find a menu designed with care, imagination and flavor as timeless as old Archibald.

Relaxed family place

This place is a good place to take a person for a calm environment, I have been going there for over 10 years now, it's still a relaxing place and moderately good food.

Some times the food and service is great some times not. Last time I got a hamburger that was near raw, and cold. I really think I should not have been charged but not such luck. They did bring me another eventually but it took a while and when it arrived the rest of my party had finished eating. They... More

Service and food quality has gone down since the last time I visited Archibald's several years ago. My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to enjoy a Valentine's dinner (which it was not). However, we had not intended to spend the entire evening at a restaurant. We decided to order their special of 4 courses for two... More

Another year. Another great dinner. I had the grilled salmon and companion had halibut. Both we moist and tasty. Fresh baked sourdough bread is a must as well as the delicious bread pudding with white chocolate sauce. They were very busy, but service was good and friendly. Parking is always a challenge, due to restaurant being in Gardner's Village. If... More

There was no wait as we arrived at 4 pm on a Monday afternoon. Servor was friendly. One of our party ordered a pot pie but it was frozen in the center. They gave us one free dessert for the problem. The French fries were soggy. What made the meal good was the ambience. Probably would not return.
