    Excellent service. Their pizza and salads are a must have. Much different pizza than you see around town - all thin crust. A good family go-to.

    Arni's Junior salad is always great and so is the chili. I got the 7" lunch pizza and chili. What disappointed me is the last two times I got the lunch 7" pizza is that it was overcooked - both the crust AND the sausage. I didn't send it back either time. Wonder if I should ask them to cook it 1-2 minutes less.

    Good service. Slow start, but very personable. This restaurant has amazing salads and pizza. I have not tried the bar area, but would be a nice place to watch a sporting event on TV.

    Haven’t been here in forever. So glad I was on the hunt for a good pizza place. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the wait staff was great. We will add this to our regular list of restaurants.

    Service and seating was off the game today - uncharacteristic. Still the food was great and as always - the value high…not quite sure what all the confusion was about being seated and what was up with the challenged service. Maybe things will be back to normal next time.

    Can’t go wrong with the loaded cheese fries and the pretzel bites. Salmon salad was great and the kids enjoyed their burgers with a side of fruit, which was freshly cut and generous. My husband enjoyed the Stromboli, as always. Great casual eating!

    They had white bean chicken chile for the soup which is always so good. Our waitress remembered us (2 from last week) and even what we orders. Lunch pizza is always good. Good food, good service, good weather on the patio.

    The prices have really increased since the last time we visited. $40 for a salad, medium pizza and 2 cokes is a bit pricey, I think. Tip was in addition.

    We had heard about Arni’s but had never been. The online menu looked great. And while our food was fine the whole experience was a little disappointing. Let me quick to say that it is no one’s fault. Our server was very attentive. She took great care of us. But the pandemic restrictions, while necessary, made this less than a satisfying experience. Wearing masks and having fewer people in the restaurant made this a little less festive than we’d hoped. Still we enjoyed our meal, the visit with our friends and we will likely come back when the pandemic is over.

    As always, Arni's offered the consistency that we've come to enjoy. It was a bit loud but maybe that's because there were more people around then what we're use to in todays world! Definitely a favorite location.

    3 longtime gal pals really enjoyed our dinner there this past week! We had not eaten "In" for a few weeks, and we were so glad Arni's was open for dining. We each had our own pizza. Wonderful! I LOVE the crumbled pepperoni, plus the salads are superb. One of the group ordered dessert, and shared a couple bites with the other 2 of us - also wonderful! We had Walker as our server - he was great. I can hardly wait to go back!
