It was lunch with a friend. I had a bowl of chicken noodle soup and the salad bar. My friend had a taco salad. It was a big bowl of soup and a good salad bar. My friends salad was huge. Certainly goo portions. Also great service. Need to come back and have breakfast.

i will never set foot in this restaurant again the food was terrible!!!!the food was greasy and bland. the shepard's pie tasted like it came out of a dog food can and the service was very, very slow. do yourself a favor, find another place to eat. also the place was very dirty they do not believe in cleaning.

This restaurant has gone through some changes in recent years, and they haven't been good. Lately, the restaurant has really fallen into disrepair. When I was there the other day, I noticed a large pile of papers and boxes in the front lobby which looks VERY unprofessional and very sloppy. If that's what it looks like where people can see,...

We have always liked Arners ok. Some folks have raved about it over the years. We drove from Middletown, about 15 miles to go someplace different for breakfast. We were told there would be a 15-20 minute wait for a table when we arrived, it was busy. After 5 minutes passed, we saw 2 seats open up at the 'counter'... More

My family and I have been to Arner's for years....I always love it there. It's not a good place for a bread eater or someone watching their food and caloric intake (like me) but it is good, home-style food. The service is usually quite good - reasonable prices and exorbitant desserts! Easy to get to on Rt 13, plenty of... More

Went there for breakfast with a friend. My server was great his name was Tim. he was very attentive and the food came out in a timely manner. Nothing special and the salad bar could have been better. Kind of a dark and dingy place but the service and food was decent. When I paid my tab the cashier was... More

Always thought place would have been a little fancy, but a little surprised when we made our first visit this past Saturday. Stopped in with some friends. Staff were very friendly, but had that gloomy feeling. Food was typical diner fare and was good. Can't say anything really great but can't condemn either. Wouldn't be surprised if it was closed...

My family felt horrible the rest of the day after eating here. Dirty. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place.
