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.

As a local, I've never had a bad meal here, have always left full and satisfied. From their pot roast to their salmon, from their chicken cordon bleu to their fried green tomatoes, Archibald's has something for everyone. Moderately priced and great service.

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.
