This is a small bar-restaurant next to Big Fish Grill on Coastal Hwy. They mostly have sandwiches and drinks--it was hard to find a gluten-free and dairy-free meal--the tacos are flour. They have specials of the day, however, and this was Mexican day. I had a $4 Margarita. It was good too--but in a small glass with Lots of ice--so,... More

Stopped there on a warm Feb. Day! Place was busy. Had heard of the arena cafe, so we decided to try it. We're glad we did. Good beer selections, extensive food items. Very casual. Planning to go back in the summer on our trips to the beach!

My wife and I went to this Arenas location several days ago and found it had gone downhill since our last visit. Our nachos came to the table with no chopped tomatoes or onions. There was only a sprinkling of lettuce. They seemed annoyed when we asked for tomatoes and onion which are normally on nachos. My chicken tenders were... More

Decent bottle beer list, quick food. Sandwiches are a little hit or miss. This visit was a miss. Cajun chicken cheesesteak is usually pretty good, this time was bland and cheese not melted. Service was fine, efficient. There was a kitchen employee wandering around the dining room for most of the visit, sort of dancing which was pretty weird. I'll... More

We had visited Arenas in town but never the cafe. Happy hour special drinks were a good value. The sandwiches and fries my husband and son got were large and very good. My crab soup was excellent. Check out the specials online before you go.

Checked out this place for a quick breakfast. Chris was our waiter. Funny, helpful and easy to deal with. Arena's has a great breakfast menu, and daily specials that can't be beat. Awesome beer selection and homemade soups and salads. We came for breakfast and came back again twice, for dinner and breakfast, before the end of our week long... More

Seven of us enjoyed lunch at Arena's. The salads were great. The wings were very average. The service was acceptable. It was an average experience.

This is an average local eatery and bar. There is an outdoor seating area and a small indoor area. It's a bit outdated and needs some TLC.

Use to be one of our favorite places-last week ordered crab cakes that arrived burned so badly they were actually black on the outside. Did not send them back because we had a two new old and waited 60 minutes for them. Went back again tonight and ordered 2 of their famous sandwiches- which we've loved for years. Waited "only"...
