We moved away a bit, but we go back every so often just because the place is so simple and easy. Food is always good, and service is friendly.

Arties is our restaurant of choice when we want to take guests to a moderately priced-restaurant and be certain they will enjoy the food and experience. The menu variety gives everyone, even our vegetarian friends, plenty of choices. We ALWAYS call about an hour ahead, however, to put our name on their list to avoid a long wait.

Consistently outstanding service, consistently outstanding food and consistently outstanding bar ... I am very fortunate to have been a customer of Arties for over 20 years now. They have the entire recipe right ... how they achieve consistency in great food and staff I will never know, but it brings me back over and over again.

Artie's serves a huge cut of prime rib on the weekend only. It is on the menu as "blackened" but they will serve it conventionally. It is slow roasted and then placed under the broiler for brief grilling. We have been there several times over the years and have been disappointed only when they ran out of prime rib before 7:30. Servings are huge and can be shared.
Waitstaff and management are wonderful. One time when they ran out of Prime Rib early on a saturday they offered us gift certificates for full meals so that we could return and not be disappointed.
They do not take reservations, but do offer the option of calling ahead so that you can be put on the wait list prior to your arrival.
It is a long drive for us, but has always been a real treat!

Good food, reasonably priced. Get there early on Friday/Saturday or long wait. Family friendly. Free parking.
