We went as a party of three to celebrate a birthday on one of stormy nights in January. After reading so many negative reviews I had never expected to go to Arnie's in Edmonds, but found Arnie's to be one of the better restaurant choices in the past twelve months. All three of us selected an early dinner favorite (before 6 pm) Cashew Crusted Lingcod and Miso Grilled Flank Steak being our choices. The food, service, ambiance, selection and view were all very good. My entire flank steak plate arrived in a very liquid bath - not sure if it was a jus or some other beefy broth, but that was the only criticism I could list. The cocktail sauce (shrimp cocktail appetizer) is a bit on the hot side, so ask for it to be on the side if you have horseradish issues. If you have dairy issues, you won't have any dessert options on the menu. It would be great if Arnie's had a broiled fish selection for those wanting a lighter fare. After two years of rejecting the idea of dining at Arnie's in Edmonds, I have to admit this is a thumb's up kind of place for a reasonably priced great dinner. It took one of our horrible winter storms to get me to go, but I'm thankful mother nature sent me there. I'm now an Arnie's supporter and plan to go back to try other items on the menu. I'm very picky on value, service and nice vibes and this place works for me!
Pros: Good Menu Selection - Go For the Early Dinner Before 6 pm
Cons: Bad Reviews by Others in the Past - might just be the past
