We have frequented this restaurant many times. Everything we have tried on the menu is delicious. The ribs are my favorite. They are flown in from Ohio and are Montgomery Inn ribs. It won't be the same without Arnie. So sad.

We've gone to Arnold Palmer's about three times but only for Happy Hour which a very good. The portions are good and the menu has some nice choices. They have a beautiful patio but you can't sit there during Happy Hour. We have it on our list to go back to when we want to spring the extra $$$. It's... More

The food here is okay, not great, and often depends on what you order. You are paying for the location. Service is hit and miss. Drinks are good.

We went here for my husband's birthday. A little sad to see all the mementos and pictures of Arnie so soon after his passing but what a great tribute to him. We are never disappointed when we go here. The food is great, the service is excellent, and the ambiance is very nice. It was a quiet evening spent celebrating... More

We had previously visited the restaurant probably 6 years ago and it was good but not worth the drive from Palm Desert. However we gave the restaurant another try because friends with whom were staying with us had visited there earlier this year and liked it. The service was good and the food better than last time we visited. Next... More

We had our parents' 60th Anniversary meal. Complementary valet service was nice. Booked a quiet room. Service was great. They took care of us quite well. Very good variety of food and everyone loved what they ordered. It was not inexpensive, but we enjoyed it for our special occasion. Themed rooms and lots of pictures and memorabilia throughout the restaurant.... More
