I have been going to Artie's for years....a bit pricey but the food is so worth it! The Prime Rib special on specific nights is more than enough for two. And the dogs love the bone! The crab cakes are my favorite...lots of crab very little filler....just enough to hold it together...the remoulade sauce is the perfect accompaniment to the cakes and the skinny fries. The cole slaw is chunky and tastes like slaw not mayonnaise.
The pan-fried trout with the lemon sauce is so fresh and tasty. Many love the Parmesan potatoes...me not so much...I usually get an extra bit of salad instead. The asparagus spears are JUMBO sized and not very tasty...to tuff for me. Other vegetable sides are really worth it. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and full of flavor as well as tender.
The salads are my favorites....field greens with walnuts, cranberries and I always add the goat cheese. The shrimp appetizers and Blue Fritter Crabs.....OMG. So very very good.
There is a secret dish...only if you ask will you be able to have it...not on the menu....it's Tequila Lime pasta with filet chunks. Just enough pasta...no so overwhelming it takes over the dish, which for me is the best of both worlds.
Artie's (Boats, Wooden) is part of Great American Restauants...Ollie's (Italian), Silverado (Old West Theme), Mike's (Bar and Grill), Carlyle Cafe ('fine dining') and Sweetwaters (just casual). Best Buns Bakery (BBB) makes the bread and Ozzie rolls (fried dough) all yummy! But be careful you can easily fill up on the bread before the meal which you don't want to miss...unless you choose a salad and soup of the day....Lobster Bisque...oh so very yummy! And so filling!
Bestest choice if you're in Northern Va....all are a great choice. No reservations but call ahead for a place on the list! Shortens the wait and since the bar is always full (can eat there too) you will be happier you called ahead.
Outdoor seating at Sweetwaters! Great for all types...families, solo, friends and couples!
