“Best Steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Steak as good as any high end steakhouse but for half the price.....and they know what "blue" means!! For those of us who like a steak very rare, this is wonderful!!
The service is friendly and down to earth and the atmosphere noisy but fun.

“Really good food but the service and noise were bothersome.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is a well established tavern, the owner, Arthur McGreevey died a few years ago. I have eaten there often (also in the Hoboken location). The feature a simple menu, with good quality meat for folks who like simple sandwhiched and steaks. They also have limited fish.

We 4 enjoyed our food, but when we arrived, only 3 of 4 were there, and the restaurant was empty. But the hostess would not seat us until the last person came. And.... the restuarant did not fill up till we were nearly done. Also the music was loud, too loud for easy conversation. And out waitress was hard of hearing, and not all that interested.

That said, it was a Tuesday, so my guess is they had the weakest staff members.

Our meat was good - I had a Reuben, another had a NY Strip Steak. All excellent.

I guess I would go again, but my wife will not.

“Well worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I was on a business trip and a colleague recommended Arthur's. I would thoroughly recommend it, a great traditional American restaurant, really good food, and good value. I wish we had something as good as this where I live in the UK.

“new owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I believe there is new management, and the new bar menu where I ate was clever and tasty. Still needs some style and less awkward seating.
