Food is OK. If you go for trivia prepare to be disappointed. The host is awesome, very entertaining however the “bar” plays too and clearly uses the internet or knows the questions in advance. Not only did they get the first “bonus” question but only got one question “wrong” the entire night. Also a previous 20 dollar gift card is only worth 10 dollars when when you redeem.

I have been coming here for over 20 years - however the other day we waited almost an hour & a half for lunch. Our server was running & apologetic - although nothing was discounted or taken off the check. Two out of the 3 meals were luke-warm & tasted like they had been sitting. It seemed like the kitchen just couldn’t keep up. Sadly, this may have been our last visit. The visit before this one had slow food as well.

Visited Arena's on a fairly busy Saturday night in the summer. The menu is mostly sandwiches with a few seafood dishes mixed in. We got the Nachos for an app-supposedly "the best on the beach" but they were over cooked in some spots and undercooked in others. The chicken was not hot and the cheese was inconsistently melted. Far from the best I have had on the beach! I had the fish tacos for a main course. They needed more seasoning and the fish was overcooked. On the positive side the beer selection was outstanding and the service was spot on. I don't recommend sitting outside as the flies were everywhere.

We stumbled upon this place by accident asked to look at the menu and immediately said “yep, we’ll eat here” we were sat immediately and after looking at the menu in more detail, decided we loved the place already. The drinks are huge, the appetizers were delicious (we got the Arenas famous nachos) and the food was superb! If you are a vegetarian (or not) I definitely recommend the mushroom veggie burger! My wife got the shrimp tacos and loved them!

We stopped in for a mid afternoon visit. Ordered my favorite, their shrimp salad platter. For a change my husband ordered the same thing. We both loved it. They always have at least a dozen shrimp, and not the tiny size sometime used in salads. It includes very fresh mixed greens, thin sliced carrots, almost a 1/2 of a large cucumber, sliced tomatoes. I always get the oriental sesame dressing. It is ginger flavored, and leaves a slightly spicy tang on the tongue, but I love it. My husband thought it had a little too much tang! Service was as usual, very polite, and complete.
