Call ahead worked great. Check their website for the number. Team service was outstanding as usual and our main server was very helpful and attentive. All of the dishes we ordered were also very tasty: fritters, salmon, chicken and waffles, crab cakes, cheeseburger, and several desserts including a nice birthday touch. Will definitely be back and highly recommend Artie's.

From the American atmosphere to the American 5 star cooking, this one of the best traditional Amercan Restaraunts I have been too. Service is great too. I orderd the Salad with Balsamic dressing and the Swordfish special and bisquits on the side. My son orderd fillet. I was shocked by the excellent tast of everything.

Nice place. Well decorated and welcoming bar and main dining area. Small bread basket was good. Great service. Overall above average but the food was not as good. We had the trout and chicken sandwich. Trout itself was good but the chicken sandwich was a bit too greasy/butter. Grated potatoes were good but too much cheese sauce. Fries were thin... More

We went on a Saturday for our anniversary. They took great care of us. I had the crab cakes and they had a taste of old bay but it wasn't overwhelming. My husband got their prime rib special. It was huge and just melted in your mouth. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Arties is a great gathering place restaurant for lunch, early dinner or after work, needing a drink and relax. The menu offerings are really plentiful and the food is very good and reasonably priced. Service was a bit slow the day we were in but there were several tables filled and I'm sure the wait staff earned their money that... More

We checked TripAdvisor for reviews of restaurants in Fairfax and this one came up as the top. I now know why! The place was packed and although we had a wait, they had call ahead seating so the wait was not too long. They seated us at a booth that was not on the main path and we could converse... More

One of my very favorite restaurants. Great food & drink! Lots of ambience - it's always crowded so I guess a lot of people agree with me! The steaks, salmon, OZZIE rolls, and everything else is great! I eat here for lunch regularly & dinner when I'm close by.

Good food at reasonable prices. A little loud but ask to be seated away from the bar. Good service from a changing crewcof college kids.

My family eats at Artie's for birthdays and other special occasions and we always enjoy it. Family favorites are the Boathouse Salad and the Chicken Palliard, but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Acoustics are better in the raised dining section especially when the restaurant is full.

Food seems to have gone to a mostly "Eh..." stage. Went today at lunch, celebrating a birthday. We both ordered ribeye steak with mashed potatoes. Steak horribly overcooked ( I'd asked for 'hot pink throughout', every place puts a different name on it - I was served 'well done' by anyone's standards....unfortunately, I sliced into the ONLY place on the...
