Stopped here for lunch with a friend. We were greeted and seated right away by the hostess at 1230pm on a weekday. Our server came promptly and took our drink orders. We opted for the mini pizza and half salad lunch special. I love the pizza here because it's thin crust and their sausage and pepperoni is shredded. Makes it... More

If one is looking for a great atmosphere to watch their favorite sport live, look no further. I was impressed with the service and especially the food. The fish tacos were very mouth watering and tasty and there are ample screens to watch multiple events at the same time. The Packers win said it all on this trip and it... More

Had lunch with a friend and nice to find a place not terribly crowded over a holiday week. Service was really good. Always get their pizza which is my favorite on their menu. A little pricey for the size pizza compared to other nice pizza restaurants. I think it's time to get new menus as they are greasy and worn.

We occasionally meet at Arni's on 96th St when we're looking for a place with a casual atmosphere, plenty of seating for parties of 6-8 and a varied menu. On this visit there were 6 of us. We were seated at a round table that could easily have accommodated a couple more. Some wanted pizza, one person wanted an entire... More

While everyone was very friendly, the food was disappointing. The fried chicken salad was served with cold fried chicken. When I questioned the server, he took it back to the kitchen. They microwaved it and returned it with less chicken than it originally had. The rest of the food was fine, but we probably won't be back as there are... More

Went to Arni's in Indy on a nostalgia tour 33 years after moving to DC area. It was STILL delicious, high quality, excellent service and amazing pizza and salads. Can't beat an Arni's Junior salad and a Deluxe pizza. Some things DO stay the same.

We were traveling to Indy for a college visit, got to our hotel late Sunday night - hungry. Found Arni's because of its many choices on menu. It was real good - our server DD was great!

the food was really good. My favorite has always been the BBq chicken pizza. I love their carrot cake with the glaze and their salads are quite large and very filling. It was a nice place for lunch with a group.

Good spot to meet friends or take the family--easy to hear conversation at your table because background noise/music is not over-loud. Long Island Iced Tea was really big-two from our group shared one glass mug full. Strawberry Mojito seemed a bit too sweet and the mint flavor not strong enough. BBQ Pizza and Thai Chicken Pizza were fabulous - about... More

Absolutely delicious and the presentation was out of this world!! Flavorful Chicken and the Ranch Dressing was coated throughout. Great service and delicious dinner! I can't wait to come back and try more salads and the pasta. I've had their pizzas which are great but wanted to try something new....I was not disappointed!
