“Best place...ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Arties is a Fairfax tradition...I have been many times in the past 10 years and have always had a wonderful meal. We had another great time last night so I decided it is time to write a review.A meal starts with a wonderful assortment of fresh breads...the Ozzie rolls are basically hot fried rolls...unbelievably good!! We have had just about everything on the men...everything is good. My favorite are the crab cakes.
They are better than any I've had in any seafood restaurant. The wait staff are really friendly but very professional.
There are a couple of downsides...first is that Arties is very popular..it is hard to just drop in on a weekend night without a long wait. The best thing to do is call ahead, check the wait time and put your name on the list. The second downside is that there are few tables for groups of 6or 7 and no tables for larger groups. Most of the seating are booths so putting tables together is not really an option.

My review title about sums it up. I will add only "limited selection" and "fantastic bread," but both are true of all Great American restauraunts.

“Out of this world food, great for groups”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

One of my favorite restaurants. Great atmosphere, excellent American fare and wonderful service makes this a great restaurant. My favorite restaurant for family get togethers. It's a little on the pricy side but well worth it for a special event such as birthdays, graduations and confirmations.

“Great food every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We frequently eat at Arties, Sweetwater and Coastal Flats. Each has its charm and the food is always good. They work as a team to serve your table, so there is always great service. The bread is fresh and delicious!
