Walking into Arnold Palmer's restaurant is like walking back to the old days of fine dining. The good is very good, the service is outstanding and one only wishes that Arnold Palmer was still alive as he use to dine there.

We were a very large group but we were served as if we were individuals with attention and excellent service. Our dinner was superb with the salmon which was a very large size cooked to perfection and enough for... More
