What a waste of money! $14.00 for a Cuban sandwich one piece of ham, tiny Bit of pork all bread no meat. Fresh cut fries! Cut a week ago? All Dried out, must have been reheated from am. Go somewhere else not Worth the money. Burger King would have been better!

We went after waiting for over 40 minutes to be seated at the Daymark and never were we decided to keep a reservation at the Arlington that we had at there. We should have gone elsewhere. The food was awful and so was the service. All of us had trouble finding something that we really wanted to eat and it... More

We live on the mainland, and frequent this place all year round....weekly. We bring everyone we know here because the beers are fantastic and different and the bar food is spectacular. Last night, my boyfriend and I decided that instead of getting the bacon mac & cheese and a lobster roll in the bar (we highly recommend!), we were going... More

Split a kale salad. crab cakes and sword fish for dinner. All was delish. Manhattan and Gin martini made to order. This was our 2nd time and we weren't disappointed.

Loved the A the first time I ate there in April. The next three trips the food was really inconsistent. Not necessarily bad, but different, like there are different chefs on different days working with "recipes" that are lacking. Will give it another shot in the off season as there aren't a lot of places open. Fun bar.

Casual place both old and young were there. I didn't bring my kids with me but plenty of others did. The food was just ok.. Plenty of other places to try..don't think I will go back. You can get a reservation last minute so I think that is a major plus. They are on open table. I got shrimp and... More

Great new LBI restaurant! This is the place to go for atypical shore food. They have the fish and seafood, locally sourced but with non-traditional sides. French fries with lobster rolls but more interesting sides like purple sticky rice with the salmon and swordfish. The only negative was the portions were on the small side, if you usually take home... More

This was my first time at The Arlington, and my experience was what others have written here and what my friends told me to expect. The service was good but not great, the wait time for food was varied, but if you work through these kinks it is worth it. The beer selection is impressive as is the menu, and... More

Menu had eclectic spin on common foods. You can just have things plain if they seem too adventurous for you. Good quality and good portions. Fun atmosphere. Good drinks. Huge craft beer selection. Awesome sourdough bread!!

Returned to the Arlington for my annual visit. The reception was professional and we were seated at a good table. The restaurant was 3/4 full while the bar was full to overflowing. The waitress introduced herself and mentioned a special on Dogfish Head beers. I ordered the stout & then we waited & we waited. The waiter apologized & took... More
