Artie's is one of several restaurants in the area that are owned by Great American Restaurants (GAR to those of us who are locals). They are known for consistent, high quality food served by well trained wait staff. You won't find any happy hours or discounts here, so if you are looking for cheap, go elsewhere. The rib eye, salmon, portobello, chicken, and pasta dishes are all great. The bar at Artie's is dark and elegant, although the tvs over the bar do detract from the elegance. It's a good meeting place.
