“Chicken Fried next time......(new old owners)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Recently visited this place that we frequented for many years, but got off our regular rotation. So had the things I remember best....get a salad with house French dressing, um good....and the HOT rolls, forget any diet, they are to die for....ask for honey if not on table. Was not impressed with the bacon wrapped filet. Too thick, small, had to send back to get done properly and not the best taste. I remember the chicken fried and will get it next time. Excellent service, nice pleasant, attractive staff. Had new paint and looked really fresh. Was told the original owners had reaquired and were working hard to get it out of hole from last owner. Offered a free beer with entree, that hinted to me that liquor license was not present, but maybe working on acquiring it. Will be back, but will stick to the best...chicken fried steak.

“Return of a local classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Anyone who's hoofed up and down Division Street over the past few years has probably noticed that the Arlington Steak House has also had its ups and downs. What was a terrific place 25 years ago went on a decline from which it seemed unlikely to recover. Well, with new owners and a return to the basics of good food, good service, and good prices, Arlington Steak House will move into high rotation on my dining-out schedule.

I had terrific chicken-fried, the best I've had in a long while, accompanied by excellent, yeasty dinner rolls, tasty sides, and finished off with a slice of coconut-meringue pie that was heavenly.

Congratulations to the new owners! You won me back.

“New Management - again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

For years we enjoyed this place, and then it began to go downhill under it's new owners. Then there was another new owner so we went back and were not impressed. Now there is yet another new owner. The latest trip recently was fair. The new folks are working hard to bring back the local folks and may have some luck. The Chicken Fried Steak with the yellow chicken flavored gravy - along with the homemade rolls and honey has always been the big draw. But their bar b que and mexican food is good also. As far as the old CFS and sides, they are all still good - but it has a way to go to get back to the way people remember it who have been around Arlington a long time. We will be giving it yet another try soon before we decide finally whether it will remain on our list of local favorites...

“The Best!!💘”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

This place is an Arlington favorite and has been here for 80 years. The new owners and management are great!!
Of course the chicken fried steak speaks for itself as the best anywhere. Today's beef briscuit just melted in my mouth.
I highly recommend this place!
