“Excellent food, family friendly prices, right off NY State Thruway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

This is an excellnt restaurant to stop at if you are traveling the NY state thruway and want either very good food, large portions and or family friendly prices. It is casual and often busy but the service is fast and the food is excellent.

“Great little family-style place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

I was there for a family reunion in the vicinity. Stopped in for breakfast and was amazed at the friendliness of the staff, the speed of service and the quality of the cooking. It is difficult to screw up a basic breakfast: 2 eggs, home fries, sausage, toast coffee and juice. It is also difficult to make one that stands out. Eggs done perfectly, all the food hot, the home fries a meal in themselves! Best I've ever had, and I'm 64 years old! Great home made toast. Service was attentive without being overbearing. And I got all of this for around five bucks! A large group (11, I belileve) came in and in no time at all, tables were pushed together and they were seated with no fuss. I'll make it a point to be back.

“Delicious Chicken Rice soup and a nice clean restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

Exited from the NYS Thruway as we do not like to eat on the Interstate in NYC as the choices are limited and generally not healthy. We ended up driving into Weedsport (which we had never heard of before) and stopping at Arnolds to take a look at the menu. We liked the look of the restaurant inside and the menu so we decided to eat our lunch there. The tuna melt sandwich was good and really quite big, the grilled cheese sandwiches were quite yummy and the kids spaghetti was very good and a huge serving. The best part was the home made chicken rice soup which was simply delicious and really hit the spot. Friendly staff, fast service, clean restaurant with clean washrooms - we would eat there again if in the area and looking for a family or diner dinning experience.

“A road-trip haven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2009

Our family of four was driving from Boston to Niagara Falls and hadn't planned a particular lunch stop. We pulled off the interstate and were glumly choosing between standard chain fare when we spotted Arnold's. Several cars were in the parking lot, usually a good sign! Upon entering we found a modest diner-type place with a tall display of homemade pies in one corner and lots of people eating and talking. Our food was not exotic but tasty, filling and HOT! Everyone was satisfied with their meal. Our server was friendly and attentive. It's clearly a place where the locals eat and there are a lot of "regulars." The bathrooms could use updating; the ladies room had a bizarre placement of a full length mirror adjacent to the toilet, but was clean. Our only disappointment was finding them closed on our return trip on Sunday. The parking lot isn't paved so it might be messy in bad weather.

“Nice place, nice people, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2009

Arnold's has an extensive menu offering substantial meals at a more than fair price. The restaurant is always neat and clean and bright inside. Service is great. Only the parking lot needs some pavement, but at least there IS a lot with plenty of space. Many's the time I have stopped in, and ultimately joined others at their table. I live in Weedsport, and going to Arnold's is a good break for good food and a pleasant atmosphere.
