Menu is creative and portions are huge! Best duck I have ever had!! It is superior to duck dishes that I have had in fine restaurants in DC, Boston and NYC.

This is a perfect place for a perfect burger. We both got burgers. Each one was 8oz prepared to our specification and perfect. Added mushrooms on mine and wife added cheese and mushrooms on hers. Excellent. we also had the chowder which was excellant. Maybe a tad to much pepper for our taste but very good.

This is a must-go if you love food! We come here for special occasions which we want to be pampered. The food is always tremendous, and the service equals. My wife and I watch the Food Network frequently, and we heard about fish ribs (Pacu). To our surprise they were on the menu. One bite and we knew what the... More

If you have not been here, you must come. They are number 1 in reading for a reason. They are the best we ever had in the area! Great food and they have some great specials for Tuesday through Thursday.

We brought 12 people from our office as part of our quarterly company meeting, several who are from out of state. Huge hit ... as expected! Great food, awesome drinks by Jim, and (of course) entertaining conversations with Frank.

Arbor inn is one of my favorite restaurants. My wife and I have been going to new year's eve dinner there since we started dating and they never disappoint. I have not had anything off their regular menu or the special menu they do for new year's that I didn't like. Burger night on Thursday is also a winner.

My husband & I ate here on a Thursday evening which is the hamburger special night so the place was busy. Rather than wait for a table we ate at the bar. Everyone was very friendly & we had great wine & enjoyed the special entree of wahoo with onions, tomatoes, mushrooms & peppers. Would go back to try some... More
