“Good solid food, refreshing change from chain restaurant fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Arch restaurant is a family owned restaurant that specializes in steaks, fish and Greek fare. The food always satisfies; the seafood items are well cooked and tasty and the steaks are tender and properly cooked to order.

It's a busy place but that's okay with me, all that turnover means the food is fresh. The wine list, while not extensive, is more than adequate for the meal choices. It is refreshing to find a restaurant in this area that is not a chain restaurant.

The décor is a little dated but the chairs are comfortable and you're not packed in like sardines (although I have eaten there when they are hosting large gatherings, which can get a little cramped.)

Overall, I find the Arch a pleasant evening out with good food, reasonable prices and friendly efficient staff.

“Great Food, Great Friends!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This restaurant is absolutely wonderful. It is family owned/operated and the pride in their work definitely shows. The food is amazing and so is the staff. Polite, great at helping with suggestions and friendly from start to finish. Try here for sure!

“Very attentive service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Midland has a limited number of upscale restaurants so my wife and I were very pleased with our Arch experience. Restaurant wasn't too busy on a snowy Friday evening resulting in timely and caring service. The hostess was very willing to meet some dietary needs. The appetizers were tasty, and our steaks were tender and cooked as requested. Could have done without the breaded shrimps but otherwise a good caesar salad and vegetables. However the house salad used iceberg lettuce, a disappointment. Overall a very nice experience
