Four of us (all adults) went to Artie's for a family celebration. The restaurant is certainly convenient for central Fairfax folks as it is in Fairfax Circle. The Tiffany lamp mode decorations in the place are attractive. Almost half of this well-lit place consists of what is a big bar, giving a bit of the sports bar atmosphere. However, the... More

We went there for dinner on our last night. After our experience with the worst chineese food ever (in Vienna) I told my daughter that I wanted to go somewhere that the food was good and the atmosphere cozy so she brought us to this place. Beautiful cozy decor with comfortable booth and great service from the moment you enter... More

This has been a favorite place for decades. I think my parents eat here once a week or more. It's a bit confusing to turn into the parking lot, but it's worth the effort. The Ozzie rolls alone are worth it. The chicken tortilla soup on Mondays and Thursdays is a draw. It has just the right amount of heat... More

Artie's is consistently the number 1 restaurant in Fairfax for a reason. The location isn't optimal, with some interesting traffic patterns and no place for any outdoor seating, but the food and service more than atone for that. Come early to hit happy hour, which has a limited number of offerings at the bar - the Louis Martini cabernet for... More

This is the fourth Great American Restaurant I have visited. Like the others it has a unique atmosphere and reasonable prices. Lunch menu had something for everything. Service was excellent. Plenty of parking. It was very busy for lunchtime I thought and reservations are recommended.

I've been eating at Artie's for at least 20 years. The food is consistently great! Try the crab cakes, some of the best I've eaten.

There are several in the chain of "Great American Restaurants" and they are aptly named. They are all delicious and Artie's is no exception. The food and service were excellent. Though the restaurant is moderately priced, the quality is worth it. Despite having a steady flow of customers, I didn't feel rushed as I enjoyed my lunch with a friend... More

The blackened chicken Caesar salad was the best I have ever had. Hidden beneath the greens were some thin-sliced cooked potato. The blackened chicken was generous and incredibly tasty. Service was excellent, even though we stayed two hours during their lunch rush. The space itself is nicely decorated with spacious booths. I'll be back.
