On a friend's recommendation, we stopped in for a drink and late lunch, and landed up staying a few hours in the large bar area. This is an enjoyable, classy but low-key place to relax. Friendly patrons at the bar. A fabulous assortment of Arnie's pictures and other memorabilia decorating the walls. Any golfer would love this place! We ordered... More

I booked a table for 3 in 'Arnie's' restaurant for 5:00pm on Christmas Eve, not knowing what to expect save for the posts left by previous contributors and images on Google Earth. Despite dressing for a fine dining experience (given the evening in question) I could not have anticipated the ambiance which greeted us upon our arrival, from the valet... More

A group of 3 visited Arnold Palmer's for dinner this week. I had never been and wasn't sure what to expect. My brother in law who was joining my boyfriend and I is a big golfer so I thought he would probably enjoy it. I had heard the restaurant is somewhat of an "Arnold Palmer" museum and there was a...

We had lunch here. Food was good, not great. Somewhat limited menu at lunch. Service was good. It is worth the trip is you are an Arnold Palmer fan. Lots of pictures and other memorabilia.

You can feel the King's presence at his restaurant in La Quinta with the Masters Room, US Open room and all the memorabilia. The atmosphere is all golf but very tasteful and Arnie has a table permanently reserved. The food is fantastic and the service is outstanding. The menu and wine list are extensive and offer a wide variety for... More

I took my husband who is a major golf enthusiast here for dinner and we were both surprised to find the restaurant so charming. Yes, its a tribute to Arnold Palmer, but the restaurant is lovely for those who just want a nice dinner out. The menu is heavy on meat and is definitely not cheap, but the food portions... More
