Great place to enjoy Spring or Summer on the patio. Service was very attentive and courteous. Wings on appetizer menu were perfect. Tomato soup is hearty without being overwhelming. Short ribs were cooked well and tender. I will have to come back to check out the Friday Night Comedy shows. Menu has nice diversity.

What happened Armory? I used to LOVE going to The Armory for mother's day brunch, but I have no desire to go back after this year. Right after I made reservations I had to convince my mother in law that this place was worth every penny, but I was so wrong. The buffet food and selection has deteriorated big time... More

We sat on the patio on Friday night there was a warm breeze, blue skies good food. We both had the fish fry I was able to have two baked pieces & one fried. I took some home for lunch the next day. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

The Armory really stands out in a town with so many chain restaurants. It's a great place to bring out of town company. The service is good, the atmosphere is relaxing and they have some unique dishes. They also have an exceptional buffet for certain special Sundays like Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day to name a few. The buffet... More

Earlier this month I attended one of The Armory's comedy night event for the show and dinner. We took a seat in the theater area for dinner so we could have a decent view. Since we didn't have reservations we were limited to certain choices out of the 60+ tables. Really? Many patrons coming in much later were clearly offered... More

Very interesting night at The Armory in Janesville last night. It started out with being seated in the theatre area for the Friday night comedy show. We hadn't made reservations, and there were only three tables in the back of the room without reserved signs on them. We were the first ones there, and as the night progressed, it became... More

Having moved from Janesville to the west coast many years ago, I often feel like Janesville is pretty "small town" when I come back to visit - especially in terms of "food culture". So it was nice to find a decent place that wasn't fast food, chain restaurant, or trying to be 'country'. Dinner at the Armory was tasty, and... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Armory a few weeks ago for dinner. We loved that the Armory had been restored to be a restaurant and were excited for a different kind of dining experience. The service and the atmosphere were great. No complaints. However, the food severely lacks quality. I ordered a pasta dish that was described as having... More

In a city that has every chain restaurant known to man, it's really nice to find places like The Armory. Went for my wife's birthday and had a great meal. I had the ribeye which had good flavor and was cooked right. She had the filet which was phenomenal. Could cut it with a butter knife. Only thing that was... More
